  1. Mardi Himal Trek
    I made a 10 days trip to Mardi Himal with Nepal Eco Aventure. This trek usually takes 6 days but my agency was awesome and arranged a trek starting with ABC trail which reached Mardi Himal’s trail through an unknown path in the pristine and the jungle forest. I really had a great time with my guide Narayan Rai. He knew the area like his pocket so we were “off-track” for a certain part of the trip, which was great and a lot less touristy. I am well-travelled and I have experienced a lot of guides, but Narayan is by far the best ! He was the kindest man I ever met, honest and really fun to travel with. We often had very interesting conversations on Nepal and other topics around the fire when the night was dark and I never had time to get bored. If there is one guide that I can recommend it is him ! I am sure, he would be very happy to help you, here is his number: +977984-3364602 Namaste ! Julien
  2. Mardi Himal Trek
    My dad and I quickly set up a last minute trek with Nepal Eco Adventure. We only had a week in Nepal and were looking for an adventure that would show us the most of Nepal. We were told to do the Mardi Himal trek and it did not disappoint. We had the best guide (Keshab Sapkota) who was super knowledgeable and made sure that we were taken care of. He made sure that we were able to enjoy the trek and not be pushed to our absolute limit. We had an amazing porter (Raj) that was super friendly as well. Our experience couldn't have been better. If you are even thinking about doing a trek through Nepal, just talk to Nepal Eco Adventures. They will make sure that you are taken care of and that you are super satisfied with your experience. I can't wait to return to Nepal and do another trek with this company.
  3. Mardi Himal Trek
    My best friend and I (both guys in our twenties) did the seven-day Mardi Himal trek with Nepal Eco Adventure in October 2017. The experience was incredible and will be a cherished lifetime memory. I think I would have enjoyed a Nepal trip independently or with any company, but there are two main aspects of the Nepal Eco Adventure experience that stood out (especially compared to the experiences of other travelers I spoke to): 1. Chandra, our guide. This guy was simply outstanding. He was constantly kind, hard-working, thoughtful, creative, fun, and considerate. Everything he did was in an effort to give us a better experience- but on top of that, he was kind to everyone we encountered (foreigner and Nepali, young and old) which allowed us to interact closely with people we couldn't have interacted with alone. Those interactions really made the trip, in my opinion. 2. Professional, well-oiled, organized experience. The trip went off without a hitch, which is not easy to accomplish in Nepal given the variables in and out of a company's control. Nepal Eco Adventure does a great job making contingency plans and having backups. They are honest with their customers and happy to work with you flexibly. To demonstrate this, we talked with a former Nepal Eco Adventure customer who was in-country during the 2015 earthquake and had to cancel half his trip. The owner of Eco Adventure immediately fully refunded him for that part of the trip in cash USD. That's stand-up professionalism. I will come back to Nepal, that's for sure- and I won't hesitate to get in touch with Nepal Eco Adventure when I do.
