Super gave trek gedaan, helemaal op maat gemaakt voor onze wensen! We zijn naar de Mardi Himal geweest een hele mooie ervaring.
De gids wist super veel over het land, cultuur etc. en kon ons daar veel over vertellen.
Daarnaast was de gids ontzettend flexibel en luisterde hij goed naar onze wensen.

In Nepal ging ik een lieftallige vriendin opzoeken en haar man. Mijn eerste Nepal ervaring en hier hoort natuurlijk een trekking bij. Via Asian Heritage hebben we samen een zes-daagse trekking door het Himalaya gebergte gedaan. De trekking naar Mardi Himal was divers en veelzijdig. Indrukwekkende plaatjes, unieke uitzichten en zeer divers landschap. Gids Shiva en porter Gyan waren erg fijn om erbij te hebben. Enorm vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Ik heb enorm genoten van alle dagen, de bijzonder vriendelijke mensen waar we bij hebben mogen overnachten, de unieke sfeer en de rust. Asian Heritage is een enorme aanrader. Je hoeft nergens aan te denken, het is allemaal voor je geregeld. Dank voor de mooie trekking die ik met jullie heb mogen maken.

Together with Asian Heritage we created a trek that would suit me and my family, I am very thankful for this service because now we I got to combine some villages and the rural areas of the Mardi Himal trek in the amount of seven days that we got to trek. We made it all the way to the top with the help of our very good English speaking and caring guide Shiva. He made us feel very comfortable during the trek. Thank you very much!
