Oct 2018 • CouplesWe did the Mardi Himal trek with Sadhuram Ghorsaine (the guide) and Kaliparsad Dahal (the sherpa).
Was An amazing and unforgettable experience.
They took care of us during the all trek, they found always nice lodge, advice us for the food. They explained us everything. Our security was really important for them, they helped us to adapt to the altitude. We shared a lot all together about the Nepal culture. I celebrated my birthday there, Sadhu organized the all day and made my day perfect.
I highly recommend to contact them for a trek. We will definitely come back again to Nepal for another trek and I only will do it with them 2!
Thanks again to Sadhu and Kali.
