Simon and I trekked Poon Hill with Arun in the summer of 2018. I was nervous about trekking (Simon is much faster than me!), but Arun took the time to make sure that I felt at ease for the entire trip. We actually learned that the faster person should go behind the slower person to make the slower person feel more at ease!
After the trek, Simon and I both considered Arun to be an excellent friend. His spoken English is impeccable, and he will engage in long conversations about himself, his culture and his country. We could ask the most detailed, complex or unusual questions, and he would have thoughtful answers. He encouraged us to think of questions as we trekked, too!
All in all, Arun is a thoughtful, attentive guide. He takes the time to ensure all of his guests are happy and healthy, but more than that, he’s remarkably amicable. He’s someone you’ll leave wishing you had more time with.
Cheers to you and your business, Arun! People are going to love you as much as we do!
We were a family group; auntie(me), niece and husband and my mum(grandmother). We hiked the Ghorepani/Poon Hill trek and we’re well looked after from our arrival into Kathmandu until the day we left. Thank you Arun and crew! I’m sure that when we signed on, 3 generations of one family, Arun Karki wondered if he would survive. Well thank you Arun, you got my mother, Amanda’s grandmother, 85 years old to Ghorepani for the experience of a lifetime. And I stood on the top of Poon Hill to witness the sun touch the Anapurna peaks, thank you. Accommodation, food, transfers were all great as were the travel recommendations. All extra costs were disclosed so we were well prepared in advance.
