Himal Mardi 7 days trek - Oct 11 - Oct 20, 2019

Traveler: Kim D. - Local specialist: Erin Green

The best thing about Himal Mardi trek is the changing terrain from tropical to alpine . Our highlight was reaching the base camp and seeing the closeness of the peaks of Annapurna and Macchapuchare ( Fishtail Mountain) . We had a tremendous guide , Scchapel , who was very informative , very experienced and we got along very well with him . Everything from start to finish was very well organized thanks to Erin . The only setback for me , which probably can’t be helped due to water shortage is that the tea houses are very basic and sanitation like the toilets need to be improved. Having said that the owners who run the tea houses are extremely friendly .

You were on a lesser known trek, so the facilities are basic, like you wrote. So well done for being a trooper! Let's see what... read more

Very glad to hear the tea house owners treated you well. Hope to see you back here again!
