What people are saying about this trip



Thanks to my guide Tanka and porter Chhabi for an awesome trip to the Himalayas! All throughout the trip they ensured that I had everything that I needed and checked in on my comfort level all throughout. The guide took time every day to explain plans for the next day, to take pictures and to point out landmarks. The views of Annapurna I and Machhapuchhare are gorgeous from the Mardi Himal base camp (more so than Mardi Himal itself). Note that you enjoy flexibility during the trip. The camps that you stay at each night are only suggestions - we adjusted from the described plan to time the weather so we could get the best views, and to get off the trail early on Day 5. Much of the trail is improved with steps or stone walkways and it is a popular trail where you will meet other hiking groups. I brought everything suggested by Welcome Nepal Treks for the trip and was well equipped. Communication with Welcome Nepal Treks was entirely through Whatsapp, and I was able to rendezvous with the guide on Day 1 with no problem. I would book a trip with Welcome Nepal Treks again!



We had an amazing Mardi Himal trek. We booked last minute and we were dealt with promptly and professionally. The trek was fully customisable including a stay in a lovely hotel and bus rides to and from Kathmandu. Our guide Amir was awesome and made our trek everything we wanted. Thank you so much!
