It was such a great experience with my trekking guide Bipin and my porter Sakchat.and his team. Thanks to them I was able achieve succes and reach the Mardi Himal viewpoint, even though i got a bit of altitude sickness. Moreover, they provided me with everything needed during the hiken. Next time when I’ll get back for Nepal and do the EBC trek, i will definitely contact Bipin to be again my guide. Thank you for the amazing experience!

Thank You! ~ from the Mardi Himal team
It’s my third-time adventure with Sali Trekking. We didn’t have to look any further when planning a trip to Nepal, Sali arranges it all to perfection!

I personally feel very much at home with Sali’s team of guides and porters, they feel more like friends to us and their presence makes our trip so much more enjoyable. Special mention to my best guide Suresh, he’s been a part of all my 3 treks, a very strong support and safe pair of hands to me. I’ll never forget how Suresh patiently helped a stubborn me all the way back from EBC after I fell and continue to trek with a gaping wound in my knee during my second trek. He kept close to a limping me throughout regardless of how slow I was. We witnessed his attentiveness again this time, as he patiently helped one of our teammates who needed support from time to time during the trek. Also not forgetting the bubbly and fun-loving Ritip, and a quiet but reliable Chandra, they are an awesome team to have. A very heartfelt THANK YOU to Sali, Suresh, Ritip and Chandra! I returned home with beautiful memories! Till the next adventure my friends!

Memorable trek 🙏
An excellent trek to Mardi Himal. The guide,porters and tea houses were exceptionally good. My health condition was not at the best due to my weak hands but the guide and porters were present there and gave me a hand all the time with a smile and affection. Kudos to them.
This is the 2nd time I am trekking with Sali Trekking.
A definite recommendation to my fellow trekkers to go with Sali and crew.
God bless 🙏

This is my first hiking trip in Nepal. We did the MBC and it was a great experience. Our guide, Suresh, is responsive to our needs and helped us throughout the trip. Me and my friend had a wonderful time hiking the MBC.
