ghorepani poonhill trek
We had a fantastic 9 days trekking with mountain rock trek. We had the amazing Dhurba as our guide who was faultless. He went above and beyond everday to make our experience unforgettable. He was extremely helpful whenever we had a question and his English was excellent. Dhurba also took me and my friend to his friends local restaurant the final night in Pokhara and again very kindly paid.
