Our guide and porter (Som & Sandesh) were really friendly and fun to be with during the entire trek. It made the hike more endurable and enjoyable. They were also helpful during the entire hike, checking in on us etc. The early 5 am morning hike up to the viewpoint was not the easiest as it was steps for close to 2 hours but our guide was patient and told us slowly, one step at a time which was comforting to hear. But the view at the top was really worth it.

One small note though was that we signed up for 5 day Mardi Himal trek but based on our fitness level (realizing we hike quite fast and relatively experienced), our guide decided to compress it to 4 day hike (after day 1 of the hike) which we only realized through our conversations with him. Would have appreciated him informing us. Not much major impact as the guide booked a hotel for us in Pokhara on the last day anyway. We now gained an extra day in the city! It is also a good thing for us now to explore more things but sad to leave the mountains earlier!

3-4 day hike is manageable for most people with average fitness level. We hiked about an average 6-7 hours for first 2 days with it stretching to about 8-9 hours on the last day at an average speed for relatively experienced hikers. 5 days will be recommended for those who want to take it really slow.

Otherwise, great experience with our guide and porter and the tour company. Thank you!
