Forget Everest Base Camp, Trek Through the Jungle
Many people travel to Nepal to take the harrowing flight through Lukla to attempt the near impossible Mount Everest Climb. However, they are missing out on the beauty of Nepal's jungles. Instead, journey to Pokhara and take the drive to begin your trekking experience near the Annapurna Circuit. The four day journey to Poon Hill is worth the climb as you watch the sun rise over some of Nepal's intimidating mountains. We loved staying in the local guesthouses along the way and were lucky enough to be some of the only trekkers as we travel on the off season. Watch out for leeches and biting flies, but enjoy the mountain scenery and happy faces of locals.
