My experience with Himalayan Smile Treks was fantastic from start to finish. I ask a lot of questions and KP was there to answer all of them! Pramod was my group’s guide and was an absolute pleasure to hang out with the entire time. He is ridiculously knowledgeable about the surrounding areas and just a really nice person in general. Definitely request him for your trek!
The Poon Hill trek is beautiful and the scenery is breathtaking.
I wasn’t a huge fan of Chitwan National Park, as most of their tourism relies on elephants (rides, “baths”, etc.) which I am vehemently against. This is no reflection on Himalayan Smile Treks whatsoever, but I encourage you to choose where you spend your money wisely and boycott Chitwan National Park until they remove elephants from their tourism program. You will see dozens of elephants chained to poles with no more than a few feet to walk (in the government facility no less!).
To sum it up:
Email KP today.
Setup your trek.
Request Pramod as a guide.
Boycott Chitwan National Park until elephant tourism is banned!
