The trek to Poon Hill consists of a trail at relatively low altitudes (never exceeding 3210 m) which allows you to enjoy unforgettable views over the fascinating Annapurna.

For the rest, the trail winds through forests of rhododendrons, which is the national flower of Nepal, along mule tracks used regularly by the locals. The entire trek is dotted with places for a stop where you can taste a glass of hot tea or a plate of rice or potatoes.

Brief information about the places we will visit during this tour:

Pashupatinath is the most important Hindu Temple in Nepal and is set on the banks of the sacred river Bagmati.  It is not only a religious destination, but a mix of art, culture, peace and devotion. Hundreds of rituals are performed every day in its premises, which are considered an open, living museum.  In the age of mythology, Lord Shiva and his consort lived here by this tributary of the holy Ganges.

Boudhanath Stupa is one of the largest stupa in the world and is the religious and cultural center of the broad community of Tibetan Refugees in Nepal. It is a holy place rich in Buddhist symbolism

Swayambhunath Stupa overlooks most part of the Kathmandu valley, offering to the visitors a panoramic view of the city, particularly enchanting at sunset. According to the legend, the hill on top of which the stupa rises, originated when the valley was created out of a primordial lake It is said that the great Emperor Ashoka visited this site more than 2,000 years ago.

Pokhara Nepal’s number 1 adventure and leisure destination, Pokhara is one of the most famous paradises for hikers who love trekking. It rises right at the foot of the mountains and is the second largest city in Nepal. The town is located in the Gandaki area, which is lush and green, rich in hills, valleys and lakes (even large ones) that develop along the valley bottom. Precisely these lakes have given Pokhara the friendly name of the City of 7 Lakes, a property thanks to which the area is full of itineraries, hiking trails and ideas for cultural visits.

Bhaktapur Bhaktapur is probably the most visited of the three historic cities of the Valley. It is a medieval town locked in centuries-old beliefs and traditions.  The city is famous for its glorious architecture, sky-high temples, like the awesome Nyatapola Temple, Nepal’s tallest ancient structure, fine clay pottery and royal courtyards where devotees, still today celebrate their pre-historic festivals
