Would you like to request a specific guide?

If you do not specify a guide, a request will be sent to all available guides (once a payment is made and the trek is confirmed). Once confirmed, you can choose from the guides who indicated that they would like to lead your trek, or ask us to recommend a guide.

If you'd like to finish the trek with a climb to the panoramic view point of Poon Hill and wave goodbye to the 8000 m peaks of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna, but not walk the road section you can cut out a few days by taking a bus between Jomsom and Tatopani.
