TitleHad a great Poonhill Trek

Had a great Poonhill trek, It was too short but amazing. Of course we will back for Annapurna Circuit trekking for next time. I love Nepalese mountains. I would like to especially thanks to Mr Sange our brilliant guide and Global Holidays Adventure team, without them the trek would not have been same. I would request same services for next visit with my friends.
