Chitwan National Park
Chitwan National Park which was established in 1973, was Nepal’s first National park established in order to preserve One Horned Rhinos and Royal Bengal Tigers. In 1984 UNESCO declared this place a world heritage site after recognizing its unique significance and the role it plays, in an international way for the preservation of some of the most endangered species in the world. Jungle safari, elephant polo, canoe ride in the park, jungle walk, village walk, birdwatching, wildlife, and observing the local tribes are some of the major attractions of this place.

Lumbini is the most famous Buddhist pilgrimage site in the world. This place is known as the birthplace of lord Gautama Buddha and contains many mysteries, artifacts, archaeology, and discoveries related to Buddhism and is regarded as a place that is a fully enlightened holy pilgrimage, a path to nirvana, freedom from ignorance, cravings, and dark desires. Lumbini is also famous for the Ashoka Pillar which was erected in the presence of King Ashoka as a symbol of respect in 539 BC.
The flow of visitors is very high due to which there are quality-oriented facilities and services available. Temperate climate with hot summers and dry winters but, temperatures are comparatively more favorable than Chitwan and the place is suitable for traveling during September to May period of the year.

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking is popularly known as Poon Hill Annapurna Panorama trek as it leads you through scenic country walks. This is an ideal and perfect trek for travelers in Nepal who are interested in the Himalayas and for those who want to be close to nature.
Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is one of the shortest and the best treks for viewing the mountains, a great opportunity for trekkers and beginners, where the trails take you to the most fascinating high places of Annapurna mid hills offering spectacular views of high snow-capped mountains.
Besides mountains and scenic landscapes, travelers would have time to explore local villages and witness the culture and age-old customs of the Annapurna region. Natives living in harmony and close to nature could be observed dedicating their basic time to farm life.
Local Culture and Religion at poon hill
This area offers the visitors to know about the local cultures and traditions, we could observe the way of living of various ethnic groups in this region. We could see and observe people making organic trees, bamboo products, ghees, storing the crops, vegetating, and witness many flora and fauna as well.
There are many ethnic groups in the region widely known as Brahmins, Chhetris, Gurung, and Magar, and there is a long list of ethnic groups but, we could shortly divide them into the Mongolian and Aryan tribes. The culture and traditions differ according to the caste which is the main reason why this place is rich in culture and tradition. We could observe that the way of living differs from place to place because of ethnicity, weather, and altitude.
Travel Insurance for Budget Holidays in Nepal
Trekking Planner Nepal strongly advises and recommends all our clients. to purchase Travel as well as Medical Insurance against unforeseen circumstances that might arise or may occur during the Himalayan holidays. Traveling & Medical Insurance must be done and obtained for traveling toward Himalayan destinations.
Trekking Planner Nepal requests all our Clients acquire Travel and Medical Insurance which is compulsory before going on any tour or trek. It should provide adequate protection for tours and treks so it would cover and have a policy for personal injury, death, medical expenses, and repatriation expenses for any means of transportation at the time of emergency evacuations, such as helicopter rescue, air ambulance or adequate cover for baggage.
Altitude Mountain Sickness (AMS)
Altitude Mountain Sickness could affect anyone. At high altitudes, the decrease in atmospheric pressure makes breathing difficult due to less oxygen. Mainly, it happens above 3300m (10,000ft).
Signs and symptoms are as follows:
- Sleepy but can’t sleep
- Loss of appetite
- Stress/ Anger
Prevention for AMS is to dress warmly as per weather conditions, drink plenty of water, eat well and walk slowly in a pace. It is good to ask and take rest or sleep if the body is not feeling well. Keep hydrated and make sure you follow the directions and suggestions provided by the trip leader regarding altitude mountain sickness.
Note - Always feel free to ask the trek leader or Guide to stop if you don't feel good. Sometimes we might feel it’s just a little bit of dizziness but, that little thing is the thing that leads to water inside your brain or lungs before you even know it. Prevention is always better than cure.
Accommodation facilities at poon hill
All of our hikes, trekking trails, and tour programs are conducted on the basis of itineraries where accommodations are set in respective Hotels, Lodges, Home Stays, Guest Houses, and Resorts. Some trails could take longer or could be shorter depending upon the fitness and pace of the clients, availability of vehicles, delays or cancellations in flights, unfavorable or bad weather conditions, roads, or trails.
Being a developing country when we are going up in the hilly region as the elevation increases the vegetation and the density of local people decrease which is the major reason why sometimes we need to compromise in terms of best services but, being a tourist route still, most of the facilities are available while some things may require compromise. For example- 24hour electricity, laundry services (because of lack of warm temperature and sunlight), wi-fi, meat and eggs, fruits, hot showers, toilet commode, quality of room and availability (standard quality rooms are found which are designed for meeting the basic requirements). However, the best services and facilities are provided but, sometimes we need to compromise according to the limited facilities and hospitalities found in the particular area.
Acclimatization and Communication at poon hill
Adapting to nature, temperature, climate, traditions, cultures, and food is one of the primary things that help to complete and enjoy the trek. As we make itineraries we always keep in mind to not elevate more on a certain day, it doesn’t mean that we are not able to elevate more than 1000 meters in a day but doing so, may cause altitude mountain sickness, and problems in breathing. But, if we make the walk slow and include stops in the trail it means we are helping our body to adapt according to the temperature, weather, and climate.
We are not going on treks to walk 24/7 and hiring a guide doesn’t mean he or she is leading and you are just following but, asking questions about the local people, their way of living, traditions, and culture is a way to know more about the traditions, cultures about the place we are traveling towards.
Water and Toilet facilities at poon hill
When we trail towards the high lands the quality of services must be compromised because of the locally available limited natural and artificial facilities. Hot showers are not available in some places due to a lack of gases and wood in the higher areas due to which clients must pay extra for the biomass required to produce heat for making hot water or showering and drinking. Mineral waters are not available due to lack of transportation so, it’s better to carry a bottle that filters the water as it goes in, or carrying water cleaning capsules can also be an ideal choice.
Being a rural area and due to lack of water some places lodges, tea shops, and hotels have a squat toilet where you are required to squat in order to do the waste management of the body. That’s not the only reason but, modern western toilets require at least 2-3 liters of water for flushing which is impossible to fulfill due to the lack of infrastructure related to drainage.
Electricity WI-FI and Battery Recharge at poon hill
Being an under develop the country and due to a lack of infrastructure the facilities related to electricity are not available on some regions and even if they are available to load -shedding, a shortage of electricity could occur due to natural or artificial reasons. Carrying a power bank is recommended in order to charge the battery of cell phones, cameras, torches, or other devices.
Recharging the battery requires extra fees in some places due to the fact that they are buying or using electricity from external sources. For example generators, solar, and even private hydro-powers.
The case of wi-fi is the same due to electricity as well as the private poles and the amount of money the locals have to invest heavily on poles, wires, and internet service providers due to which the wi-fi requires a certain amount of payment but varies from place to place and is not applicable everywhere.
