ia Asian Heritage hebben we een 6-daagde trekking door de Himalaya met gids en porter gedaan. Het was een onvergetelijke tocht naar Mardi Himal waar je de meest fantastische uitzichten hebt. Gids Shiva en porter Gyan (aanraders!) zorgden ervoor dat alles perfect geregeld was. Naast dat het hele gezellige gasten zijn, zijn ze ook zeer deskundig en kunnen ze overal bij helpen. Onderweg slaap je in kampen, heerlijk primitief en back to basic, maar wordt er wel goed voor je gekookt ‘s avonds en ‘s ochtends voordat je weer aan de wandel gaat. De plaatselijke bevolking is enorm vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Asian Heritage zorgt niet alleen voor de overnachtingen, de gids en de porter, maar ook voor vervoer, slaapzakken en waar nodig extra kleding. Je gaat goed voorbereid op stap en hoeft eigenlijk alleen nog maar te genieten van al het moois dat je tegenkomt. Met als ultieme beloning de aankomst op de top van je trekking. Voor iedereen een keer een stukje Himalaya wil ontdekken, is dit een absolute aanrader!
