On October 14th I traveled to Pokhara to join a trekking group through 3 Sisters Trekking. They had a 5-day trek to Ghorepani/Poonhill starting Oct 16th so I decided to join as hiking in the Himalayas was a bucket list item.
I joined 4 other women – an other American who is currently living in Nepal, a French woman currently living in Dublin, a German woman currently living in the the UK, and a Brazilian woman currently living in the UK. We were led by a Nepali female guide and 5 female assistants. Our group was diverse, interesting, smart, and fun! I really enjoyed my time with these women.
Here’s a photo summary of my trek:
Day 1: Pokhara – Nayapul – Hille
We had over an hour and a half long drive to our trail head in Nayapul which was made a little longer with a few traffic jams along the way!
Views from the trail.
We had the occasional traffic jam on the trail, too!
Each day we would trek to a guest house where we would have an afternoon tea/coffee and snack and spend the rest of the evening. So we would have dinner, sleep, and breakfast at whatever guest house we were at. This was our guest house on night one in Hille.
Day 2: Hille-Ghorepani
Day 3: Ghorepani- Poon Hill – Tadapani
Day 4 and 5 will be covered in the next post. Having a hard time adding any more pictures!
