5* five day Ghorepani/Poon Hill hike

Rated 5 out of 5

My husband and I are so lucky to have found Jayaram while looking for a guide for our 5 day Ghorepani/Poon Hill hike. Jayaram was super friendly and available from the moment we touched down in Kathmandu to the day we left Nepal. I was 4 months pregnant on this trip and Jayaram made sure that I was ok and comfortable the whole time. During our 5 day hike, everything was organized very well and we had a lot of flexibility to stop in a different village if we were too tired or to keep on hiking (to note though that it wasn’t a busy season). Navaraj, our porter who is training to become a guide, was also very friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure to spend 5 days with both of them.

After the trek, Jayaram also helped to organize our safari package in Chitwan, which was also an excellent experience.

We were sad to leave Nepal and when we come back to do base camp we’ll make sure to contact them again!

My experience with Base camp Hike was excellent. The agency is really helpful not only for the trekking part but literally for any concerns that you may have during your stay in Nepal. I’ve done 4 days trekking to the poon hill, during the trek we stayed in a very nice clean tea house, the food was really good and I really had enjoyed my time.

Poon Hill Trek

Went on the Poon Hill trek with guide Jay and porter Nabaraj. Although and easy trek it was very nice to have Nebaraj as a porter with us. He is also a guide and spoke good English which to allow us to split up and walk to two different paces since they were both there. Jay is very attentive and makes sure every detail of the trip is managed. I travelled with a very needy co-traveller who kept getting into messes and Jay patiently managed all of his chaos throughout the trip. If you’re looking for a very attentive guide service then I recommend using Base Camp Hike.

It’s been a delightful experience having Jayaram as our guide during our time in Nepal. He not only showed us the breath-taking sceneries around the country but also took his time to explain the cultural aspects of Nepal which we enjoyed a great deal. He’s a kind and patient person who’s willing to put up with our constant whining throughout the journey. We cherished the experience and, more importantly, appreciated the friendship we’ve built with him.
