Great experience with Nice People
I had a trip to Poon Hill with Deepak. The Annapurna Panorama Trek itself was a true delight. The trail took us through diverse landscapes, from terraced fields and rhododendron forests to majestic snow-capped peaks. Each day brought new breathtaking views that left us in awe of nature's magnificence. It was a great experience and I can totally recommend trekking with World Alpine Treks!
