8-Day Mardi Himal Trek

By Nepal Eco Adventure

Overview

8 days 7 nights
Private trip
This option begins in Kathmandu, where the operator will drive you to Pokhara to begin your trek. The 6-day trek begins on the second day, and you will journey 6-7 hours a day before each checkpoint. The welcoming villages along the trail will house you each night, with hearty breakfasts and warm tea that will fuel you throughout the climb! If you're lucky, you might even chance upon wild deer as you traverse through thick forests and terrains.

Nepal Eco Adventure

Nepal Eco Adventure strives to be an eco-friendly trekking company - they discourage trekkers from using single-use plastic bottles and they bring back all the waste they produce on a trek. The founder, Chhatra, used to be a mountain guide himself before he decided to set up his own company to provide employment opportunities for his community. He regularly invests a portion of his profits to promote education for children in rural areas of Nepal as well.
