                            Great adventure at the Mardi Himalaya Trek

                            Bishnu was a Great Guide with lots of experience. He took care of everything, so that I could enjoy the trek.
                            We had a great time and he managed our trip depending on the weather, so that we had the best conditions at the highest point of the trek! I can really recommend the tour, Bishnu and Nepal at all! Was a Great adventure.
