Poon Hill Trek

We enjoyed the trek to Poon Hill very much. The arrangements were handled in very professional manner and our guide Krishna was excellent. He handled all of the accommodation at the many guesthouses in a low-key and very efficient manner. He also sums to it that that we ordered our meals in advance. He is knowledgeable of the customs of the people in the villages along the way added to our enjoyment. He also provided some historical background. The matter was excellent for our descent to Poon Hill and the scenery was excellent.
