Mardi trek & tandem paraglide to Pokhara.

Embark on an extraordinary adventure in Nepal with our exhilarating Mardi Himal Trek and Paragliding Tour. This unique combination, brought to you by Responsible Adventures, allows you to hike to the scenic Mardi Himal high camp at an impressive altitude of 3,550 meters before taking to the skies for a tandem paragliding experience like no other, all under the guidance of renowned paragliding pioneers from Nepal.

Our expert paragliding pilots, the esteemed NATGEO adventurers of the year in 2012, Sano Babu Sunuwar and Lakpa Tseri Sherpa, have achieved remarkable feats, including conquering Everest and paragliding from its summit to the Sun Koshi River, before kayaking to the Bay of Bengal, setting a world record. Now, you have the extraordinary opportunity to soar through the sky with these legendary adventurers as they join us on day six of your trek, which starts from Pokhara, to prepare for the breathtaking paragliding experience awaiting you.

Previously a hidden gem, the Mardi Himal trek has recently gained popularity. Once accessible only through expedition-style treks organized by a few Nepalese companies, the route now welcomes individual hikers with newly established lodges and guest houses, providing comfortable accommodations along the path. This trail takes you off the beaten track, guiding you east of the famed Annapurna Base Camp trail towards the extraordinary Mardi Himal Basecamp, offering stunning panoramic views of the legendary Mount Fishtail.

Embarking on this memorable journey requires careful planning and guidance from experienced professionals. Therefore, we recommend partnering with our reputable trekking company to ensure your safety, adherence to local regulations, and a remarkable experience. Don’t miss this chance to explore the hidden beauty of Nepal while enjoying the thrill of paragliding—all in one unforgettable adventure.
