I interviewed 3 other travel agencies prior to Walkers Expeditions and found Walkers to be superior in cost, quality and with its overall friendly spirit. The guide and porter were very attentive, friendly, and professional. I highly recommend Walkers Expeditions and will personally use them again on my next adventure trek in Nepal.

Ghorepani means (horse water), and it does not doubt a welcome watering stop for the teams of horse, Mules and ponies that carry loads between Pokhara and Jomsom. The exotic horse/mules caravans, with melodious bells that echo over great distance and wondrous plumes and headdresses on the lead horse, are reminiscent of ancient Tibet. Herded by Tibetan people, who shout up and down the trail, the lend a unique touch to the Jomsom trek.

Ghorepani Poon Hill trek starts after a short drive from Pokhara about an hour and start the trek at elevation 1065m with rocky trail through the River bank and forests and past large waterfalls and swimming hole. Pony caravans, terraced, rice fields and crossing the suspension bridge will provide an immense experience of your lifetime. The trail climbs very steeply on a stone staircase, the tops of Annapurna south (7219m.) and Hiunchuli (6441m.) begin to emerge from behind the hills. The trail crosses tow sparkling clear streams and magnificent oak and rhododendron forests that bloom at march/April around the Ghorepani Poon hill trek. 

In this Ghorepani Poon Hill trek  the Ghorepani Deurali (which means pass), at 2834m offers you a spectacular panorama of Dhaulagiri I (8167m.), Tukuche, Nilgiri, Annapurna-south and Baraha Sikhar (formerly known as Glacier).

One of the classic trek in the Annapurna region is towards to the Annapurna Sanctuary: This Annapurna Base Camp Trek is the most interesting Trekking  among the Other short Trek. Annapurna Base camp is used by group of  expeditions attempting  to the massive south face of Annapurna I. The trek to Annapurna Base Camp combines some of the most spectacular mountain scenery with fascinating insight into the life of middle hill of Nepal. 12 days for the trek (from Kathmandu to Kathmandu and 10 days from Pokhara to Pokhara), allows time for exploration inside the Sanctuary and also chance to extend the route on to Ghorepani and Poon Hill. The trail up the Modi Khola passed through dense stands of rhododendron and bamboo forest for the first day. As after passing through the “gate” and enter the Sanctuary you find yourself in a huge amphitheater enclosed by a solid wall of show capped peaks, which include Annapurna I, II, III, and IV plus the fish tailed spire of Machapuchhre.

The trail returns the same way until Chomrong and heads towards to Ghorepani via Tadapani. Ghorepani means (Horse water), and it is not doubt a welcome watering stop for the teams of horse. After an hour climb to Poon Hill you can view the massive view of 12 snow capped high  mountain peaks in front of you.

he Jomsom Muktinath trek is probably the single most popular trek in Nepal and it is en route of Annapurna Trek. The diverse of landscapes and cultures to be found along the trek route gives a marvelous insight into the way of life of rural Nepalese people. The main feature of this Jomsom Muktinath Trek is the walk through the gorge carved by the Kali Gandaki River, which carries water from the Tibetan plateau to eventually join the Ganges in India. 

In this Jomsom Muktinath trek, Muktinath is famous pilgrimage site for both Hindu and Buddhists. To the Hindus, Muktinath is sacred as the place of salvation. They believe that to wash in the water here guarantees salvation after death. The Hindu god Brahma, is thought to have lit the eternal flames that still burn at Muktinath. To the Buddhists it is a place that the great sage Guru Rimpoche (Padmasambhava) meditated at, and to all, it is the source of fossilized ammonites, known locally as shaligras, that are the found all along the upper reaches of the Kali Gandaki. 

Jomsom Muktinath Trek, between Tatopani and Lete Khola the scenery changes dramatically. Pine forests crowed in the trail and the villages take on a quite different appearance. The best example of unique architecture is to be found at the village of Marpha. Jomsom Bazar is best known as district Head quarter of the Mustang District.

After an hour drive from Pokhara the trek starts from Naya Pul and follows the old Tibet and India trade route to spectacular view point Ghorepani. Ghorepani means (horse water), and it is not doubt a welcome watering stop for the teams of horse. Mules and ponies carry loads between Pokhara and Jomsom. The ponies also grind the trail in to dust and slippery mud with their tiny, sharp hooves and careen downhill. Frightening with trekkers in to jumping in to the bushes, but the colorful photo graphics possibilities and the harmonious tinkle of bells almost make it worth the trouble. Between Tatopani and Lete Khola the scenery changes dramatically. Pine forests crowed in the trail and the villages take on a quite different appearance. We head to Dhaulagiri Ice fall after Larjung and make one over night camp in between the village.
