Nepal Poon Hill Trek

October 16 - October 23

$1250.00

We are excited to offer our 3rd trek to Poon Hill in Nepal with US Sherpa!

River Rock Outfitter staff first trekked Poon Hill in October 2017.  We’ve since sent a second group who trekked the same path up Poon Hill in October 2018 – we even had a 72 year old client successfully complete the hike!  To see the Annapurna Mountains at sunrise was a remarkable experience and we are excited for more of our clients to see the majestic Himalaya. You cannot imagine how powerful it is too see mountain ranges twice the size of anything in the US.

We have exciting news for this year’s trek!

It is no secret that we fell in love with the people and places in Nepal.  There is so much to love about this wonderful country and we wanted to find a way to support the people in the Myagdi District, where we trek to Poon Hill.  We spoke to the Mayor, Captain Pun, about his region’s needs and how we might be able to best support the villages we pass while on trail.  Captain Pun provided us with information regarding a small school in Shikha Village that needs a lot of help.

This year’s trek will lead our clients on a slightly different path up the mountain.  Our clients will have the opportunity to stop by the school in Shikha Village that we sponsor, meet the children, and have what will be a very unique cultural experience.  Literally, no other guide service offers this type of personal interaction with the people who live and work on the mountain.  It will be an enriching and immersive experience!

With this change in route, it will provide us the opportunity to stop and enjoy the hot springs in Tatopani (translation: “Hot” “Water”) after summit day.  Trust me, your muscles will thank us!

Now’s your opportunity to trek Nepal and enjoy this engaging cultural experience.
