We did the Jomsom Trek and Annapurna Base Camp visiting Poon Hill along the way (22 days including side trips). We originally planned to do some technical climbing, but Kimberly got pregnant after we purchased our plane tickets. She was five months along when we did these treks. If you want to see a Nepal villiage that is still unaffected by tourism while in the region visit Paudwar (pron. powder). It is located of the main track and is an alternate route to Tatopani from Poon Hill. Take a porter or guide to show you the way and ask about it at the national park headquarters. We were the first trekers to visit the villiage in 14 months? Spend the night there; it was a great experience.
