This was our first ever hike, and it was a great introduction. Some parts were challenging but doable. Gorgeous nature and never too busy or congested. We chose the Happyland treks for this trip as they seemed very friendly when we first called. After we arrived in Nepal, we became sure that we chose the right agency. They were very friendly and supportive. I forgot to bring medicine, and they helped me to locate a pharmacy at Thamel. Our guide was also a huge help during the trek. We had a worry-free trek mostly because of our experienced guide. He always kept our safety as his priority, and we felt safe with him.

The whole experience with Happyland Treks has been incredible. The manager was extremely professional and quick to respond to any emails I had before we started our Poon Hill Trek. Our guide was also amazing. We went for 9days’ trek, and the guide was very helpful throughout the trip. He organized everything for us, we didn’t have to worry about a thing because it was always taken care of. He suggested to us some unique places from where we got gorgeous views and also recommended excellent restaurants. I highly recommend this company as they were very professional, flexible, and organized.
