"Snow Mountains"
Ranked #6 in Pokhara Can't Miss Attractions
111.4 mi from Patan, Pokhara
"The Boone Mountain Loop is a great entry-level hike. The difficulty and intensity are not too great. The hike takes 3 days, plus the round trip from Pokhara is a total of 4 days and 3 nights. Since there are only four days and three nights, you don’t need to bring too much luggage. Bring the necessary items. Other luggage can be stored in the hotel. It is not recommended to follow the group, you can go by yourself. You can find a travel agency on a certain treasure to get the two documents needed for hiking, and they will be delivered to your hotel in Pokhara. You can take a taxi from Pokhara to and from Nanyapu. Remember to bargain. Of course, you can also take a local bus, which is much cheaper. When you arrive at Nanyapu, you can hire a porter, who will help you carry your luggage (you can't bring suitcases, use a backpack), you can carry a small package of valuables, food and water by yourself. The cost of my porter a few years ago It is 100 RMB a day (equivalent to 1700 Nepalese rupees), and a tip is given separately, usually 5 US dollars or equivalent rupees. In addition to backpacks, they also act as guides to take you to the inn. The porter can speak simple English and communicate no problem. . The inns in the mountains generally have two beds in one room. Except for some inns, most of the inns do not have a bathroom. The bathroom and bath are shared. Don’t care about the porter’s accommodation and meals. He takes you to the inn and the inn is responsible for it. The room rate does not include any meals, so eating, buying hot drinks, surfing the Internet, charging (there are basically no sockets in the room, only electric lights), bathing are all paid separately, don’t worry, any inn will not kill Customers, the prices are within the acceptable range. If the porter takes you to the inn and you feel unsatisfied, let him find another one for you. There are many inns in small villages. The intensity of hiking every day is not too great, and the roads are easy to walk. Stone steps and dirt roads are the main ones. There are no dangerous and steep roads throughout the journey. Of course, since it is hiking on foot, it is inevitable to climb the mountains every day. On this itinerary, you can see the Annapurna Mountains, local villages in Nepal, terraces, rivers, streams, waterfalls, and passing through virgin forests. The landscape is extremely diverse. One day, you have to get up and climb the mountain before dawn, go to the viewing platform to watch the sunrise of the Annapurna Mountains, and you can also watch the fishtail peak and the snowy mountains to drink coffee and eat, which is great! The best seasons are October (after National Day) and November. There is no rain in the dry season, road conditions are good, visibility is high, and there are not many hikers."
