I went on a five-day hike to the Mardi Himal which was a fantastic experience. Especially Himal at the Wilderness Trekking office was very helpful and even helped me connect with another solo female traveler in case I wanted to hike together with her. Despite the fact that we decided to do different treks in the end, I really appreciated this.
Vishal Gurung was my guide for this trip. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the route, spoke excellent English, making communication with him very easy, and chose very good tea houses for us to stay in. It was extremely helpful for me to have his knowledge of route timing, as we had a lot of afternoon premonsoon storms during the week I walked, so I was always keen to arrive at our accommodation before the rain started — which we always achieved.
Vishal was a calm, courteous presence, and I liked learning about the importance of the Macchupucchre mountain to him and his family. Would definitely recommend Nepal Wilderness, and Vishal as a guide.
