Great mardi himal treat with mountain eco trek

4th November, 2022

Recently returned home, in November 2022 me and other two friend, we trekked Mardi Himal including a visit to Chitwan with Mr, Ram, which took 09 days.
Mountain Eco Trek and especially Ram our guide, Porter Deepak did a great job! They are very friendly, helpful people with a lot of knowledge. Mountain Eco Trek made all the paperwork very easy, our guide Ram was able to answer our questions in advance during the trip, and he explained a lot about Nepali culture and traditions. On the way to Kalimati during the trek I got a knee problem, but our porter Deepak helped me a lot. He looked after me and gave me some tips and advice on how to move my legs.
We had a great time from start to finish, were very well organized, and had very good food during the trek, the weather was very clear and beautiful while we were there, and we saw many beautiful views of the Himalayas, especially the Fishtail Himalayas and Annapurna. South, Gangapurna and Himchuli Himal are amazing.
If anyone is looking for a holiday in Nepal I can highly recommend Mountain Eco Trek with Mardi Himal Trek to make your holiday enjoyable and memorable.
Looking forward to coming back with another adventure
Thank you, best wishes

Mardi Himal Trek with Ram

22nd November, 2022

My wife and I did the Mardi Himal Trek and it was amazing! The mountains (Annapurna South, Machapuchare (Fish Tail), and Mardi) were stunning from the viewpoint, and the sunrise at High Camp was worth every bit of the climb. We extended out trip to Chitwan National Park and were able to see Rhinos in the wild which was amazing!

This was our second trek with Ram as our guide and we can't say enough good things about him and his company! He is very attentive to details and easily adjusted our schedule based on how much ground we could cover each day on the trail.

We are already talking about when we can get back to Nepal and do it all again!

Mardi Himal Trek

9th November, 2022

My husband and I did a private Mardi Himal Trek at the beginning of November. I would highly recommend this trek to anyone. While there are a lot of stairs on the route, the views of Annapurna South, Fishtail, and Mardi were breathtaking and absolutely worth the effort. The teahouses were basic but comfortable for the most part. The dining rooms are heated, but the bedrooms are not (just something to be aware of if you are going in the late fall).
Of course, everyone knows the people you go with are important, too. This was our second time having Ram as a trekking guide (1st time was on the Poon Hill trek some years ago). There's a reason we chose to stick with him again. He's organized, has a good sense of humor, anticipated our needs/wants before we said them, and managed itinerary changes with ease. While Dapak, our porter, spoke limited English, he attempted to engage with us during the evenings at the teahouses, helped us over rough terrain in a few spots, and brought a positive attitude to the trek.
Overall, the trek was amazing and if there weren't so many other incredible places to see in Nepal, I would do this trek again.

Mountain Eco Trek and especially Ram our guide, Porter Deepak did a great job! They are very friendly, helpful people with a lot of knowledge. Mountain Eco Trek made all the paperwork very easy, our guide Ram was able to answer our questions in advance during the trip, and he explained a lot about Nepali culture and traditions. On the way to Kalimati during the trek I got a knee problem, but our porter Deepak helped me a lot. He looked after me and gave me some tips and advice on how to move my legs.
We had a great time from start to finish, were very well organized, and had very good food during the trek, the weather was very clear and beautiful while we were there, and we saw many beautiful views of the Himalayas, especially the Fishtail Himalayas and Annapurna. South, Gangapurna and Himchuli Himal are amazing.
If anyone is looking for a holiday in Nepal I can highly recommend Mountain Eco Trek with Mardi Himal Trek to make your holiday enjoyable and memorable.
Looking forward to coming back with another adventure
Thank you, best wishes

Mardi Himal Trek with Ram

22nd November, 2022

My wife and I did the Mardi Himal Trek and it was amazing! The mountains (Annapurna South, Machapuchare (Fish Tail), and Mardi) were stunning from the viewpoint, and the sunrise at High Camp was worth every bit of the climb. We extended out trip to Chitwan National Park and were able to see Rhinos in the wild which was amazing!

This was our second trek with Ram as our guide and we can't say enough good things about him and his company! He is very attentive to details and easily adjusted our schedule based on how much ground we could cover each day on the trail.

We are already talking about when we can get back to Nepal and do it all again!

Mardi Himal Trek

9th November, 2022

My husband and I did a private Mardi Himal Trek at the beginning of November. I would highly recommend this trek to anyone. While there are a lot of stairs on the route, the views of Annapurna South, Fishtail, and Mardi were breathtaking and absolutely worth the effort. The teahouses were basic but comfortable for the most part. The dining rooms are heated, but the bedrooms are not (just something to be aware of if you are going in the late fall).
Of course, everyone knows the people you go with are important, too. This was our second time having Ram as a trekking guide (1st time was on the Poon Hill trek some years ago). There's a reason we chose to stick with him again. He's organized, has a good sense of humor, anticipated our needs/wants before we said them, and managed itinerary changes with ease. While Dapak, our porter, spoke limited English, he attempted to engage with us during the evenings at the teahouses, helped us over rough terrain in a few spots, and brought a positive attitude to the trek.
Overall, the trek was amazing and if there weren't so many other incredible places to see in Nepal, I would do this trek again.
