Great guides for great adventures

We did this trek with the addition of Poon Hill this September. The views from Poon Hill and ABC are breathtaking, but they are limited during the remaining days of the trek since the trail leads through a deep valley. The trek is more strenuous than it seems to be because of a number of steep up and down stairs climbs required to cross a few valleys. All in all, the views from ABC are worth it. After the trek, we can firmly recommend Malung Treks to anyone. Raj is a professional manager who can arrange barely everything within a minute or so, starting from airport pick up and drop off, flight tickets including picturesque mountain flights, all the trekking stuff ending with a relaxing side trip to Chitwan to rest after all the days of walking or Kathmandu sightseeing. Bal Kumar Magar, who was our guide, is one of the nicest people I have met in my life. Despite his young age, he feels on the Himalayan trails like at home. He is always there to answer any question or concern always willing to adjust the itinerary to your needs, no matter if it means extending or shortening the walking day. I highly recommend Bal and Malung Treks to everyone
