Hi there! I'm taking a big trip this summer and coming to Nepal for the first time ever. I'm so excited and looking forward to doing this trek. I will be a single woman traveling alone and definitely prefer a female guide!

A moderate hike in the Annapurna region for those who want a taste of trekking without the high altitude. While relatively easy by Nepal standards, this trek still packs a punch, with some steep climbs and awesome views, including the famed Himalayan panorama from atop Poon Hill.
