Encounter the essence of Nepal's Himalayan mystical peaks. A must for the bucket list and arguably the best trekking destination on the planet. Thousands of people flock to this small, landlocked Asian nation every year to head deep into the Himalayan region.

While famous hikes such as Everest Base Camp and the Annapurna Circuit bring in the majority of adventure-seeking mountaineers looking for long, challenging treks and elevations, shorter hikes such as  Poonhill are just as breathtaking whilst not being as physically demanding. 

Poon Hill trek is one of those hikes. Our tours take place in springtime when the days are longer and warmer. At this time the Annapurna Conservation Areas are fertile, lush, beautiful and boast abundant rhododendrons which are in full bloom. Waterfalls cascade and mountains glisten with snow and ice and you may see the occasional wild yak. This experience will be sure to take your breath away.The Poon Hill Trek is just stunning and you don't need to be a mountaineer to experience its beauty.  Elevations of 3210m make the hike reasonably easy for anyone with a modest fitness level.

The YAMA Movement 

This transformational experience helps you to explore your inner and outer environment and reconnect with yourself, nature and the flow of life. Our trips are small boutiques and customised according to the group's desire.  

YAMA -  Brings this experience to life through the raw elements of dance, play and connection with your inner child. Sleep under the stars, meditate on mountains and feel the earth under your feet. Daily yoga and breathwork classes with fully certified guides and teachers. Visit mineral magic natural hot springs along the way. 

Share:  Sharing is part of our ethos. We encourage you to bring your unique gift and share it at this gathering. YAMA Is a space to express yourself through what brings you joy. Radical self-expression, music, flow toys, games, arts, singing, and dance.
