    I may be exceptionally late in doing this survey as I did the Mardi Himal Trek right around a half year back yet I should compose an inspection about my experience. Binod was the most amazing person throughout the trek. Directly from the get-go, Rajan, my guide and everybody at Nepal Trek Adventure Team was totally phenomenal, continually going that additional above and beyond for my benefit and ensured that I had the most ideal trek experience possible. Indeed, even before touching base at Kathmandu, Binod and his replying of my questions made everything so a lot less demanding. On the trek itself, Rajan was downright stunning and alongside a standout amongst the best guide cum porter ever, my Mardi Himal Trek was a flat out progress. Finding out about the mountains and the general population's lifestyle, I recollect unmistakably that Rajan and I were for the most part having a decent time there. The exquisite mountains and the landscapes were stunning also. All things considered, a standout amongst the best features of the trek was the whole distance to the Upper View Point where the sights of the Himalayas were beguiling! I had a chilled brew at one of the teahouses there with Rajan ignoring the Mountain View directly before us and I feel that was unquestionably one of those significant snapshots of my life where it at long last sank in that I was at the Himalayas. I can't suggest Nepal Trek Adventure Team more than I as of now have and I will run with NTA again when I do come back to Nepal for another lovely trekking background. It surely was an undertaking of a lifetime! Much obliged to you Nepal Trek group for this astonishing time with me around the Himalayas!

    Mardi Himal Trek provided me the best opportunity to explore the naturally beautiful Nepal with its picturesque view and close-eye panorama. I landed in Kathmandu in the morning and visited Pokhara that same day and settled in the hotel. I met Shiva at my hotel as I had already booked my trek through Nepal Trek Adventure and he was one of the guides associated with that company. Next day, we started our journey to Mardi Himal. Our main destination was Mardi Himal Base Camp where we reached crossing Kande, Deurali, and the low and high camps. The trek ran for 5 days and all these days were the most amazing time of my life. I got to know about local people, their culture and lifestyle, food and ethnicity, and so on. Also, the beautiful Himalayan snowcapped landscape with green forests, cascades mesmerized me a lot. We did a lot of fun too. Pictures and videos I took will be the best memory collection of my lifetime. Thank you, Shiva and Nepal Trek Adventure.

    I went on the trek to Mardi Mountain sorted out by Nepal Trek Adventures in March 2018 and I had a totally crushing time. It's a moderate trek blend of wonderful climate and a magnificently sorted group. They guaranteed we had a great time and all the more significantly safe trek. I might want to make reference to Binod (The owner) and Krishna (our guide) for their perfect arranging and persistence with an unruly gathering. I likewise recommend Krishna for his capacity to keep us moving through the intense stretches of the trek. It was a great ordeal and I can altogether recommend both Mardi Himal Trek and Nepal Trek Adventures to others for their safe and sound visit to Nepal.

    I had a great time in Nepal along with my friend and one of the guides of Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition. Choosing Mardi Himal trek was the best decision I made for my 7 days holiday. It was of only 5 days and within that time, we felt like we were stepping on the heaven. It was that appealing and recommendable. Sadly I got sick, maybe it was because of cold and height. But our guide took proper care of me. Also his keep going kind of attitude filled me with energy and positive vibes. It helped me a lot during the trek. We had lots of fun during the route and our arrival at the Base Camp. We are so grateful that we got the guide with years of experience and friendly nature. It was the best trek offered with the best team, itinerary, cost, and services. Highly recommended.

    I and one of my friends wanted to travel to a less crowded area to have some relaxed time for some days only. As we didn’t know much about Nepal and trekking, we decided to go for a short trek. We began to surf through the internet and got to know about the Nepal trek adventure. Though, we were confused about whether they would fulfill all the words included in packages. Soon we contacted NTA and their welcoming behavior attracted to them. The team was very professional and friendly at the same time and they really fulfilled all our expectations throughout the trek. Thank you for your great service.

    We (me and my husband) had lots of plans on our list, and visiting Nepal was also one of them. We searched for cheaper and faster trekking route in Nepal and got to know about Mardi Himal Trek provided by Nepal Trek Adventure, which was for just 5 days. Also, we had the option of extending the trek. We were time bounded so we decided to keep it up to 5 days only. We booked the trip and reached Nepal a day before our trek started. Binod (MD of the company) himself came to receive us in the international airport and transferred us to the hotel. Next day we took flight for Pokhara, reached there and started our journey. We enjoyed the trek a lot. The place was fully covered with the snowcapped landscape, mountains, small ponds and cascades, green forest and so on. It was one of the best places to visit in the Annapurna region of Nepal. We had the hangover of the place for so long after we returned back to our country. It was one of the best experience of our life. Also, thank you Nepal Trek Team for making this trip worthy and far more beautiful than expected.
