Mardi trek & tandem paraglide to Pokhara.

Imagine hiking up to 3,550 meters to Mardi Himal high camp and then flying off tandem on a paraglider to Pokhara. Yeah! It is now a reality. Responsible Adventures has teamed up with the best paragliding pilots in Nepal to do a unique adventure combination of trekking and paragliding.

The paragliding pilots were named the NATGEO adventurers of the year in 2012. They are Sano Babu Sunuwar and Lakpa Tseri Sherpa. These two Nepali guys climbed Everest, took off on a paraglide from the summit to the Sun Koshi River, and kayaked to the Bay of Bengal, setting a new world record. You will be paragliding with the adventurer legends. The paraglide pilot meets us on day six, hiking from Pokhara for the flight the next day.

The Trek to Mardi Himal has only been a favourite in recent years. Previously, only expedition-style trekking used to be run on this route by some of Nepal’s trekking companies. The individual hikers stayed off the trail as there were few lodging facilities.

Thanks to some enterprising locals, now the path has some lodges and guest houses, making it possible for FIT to trek this route. The trail takes you east of Annapurna Base camp trail and eventually to the Mardi Himal Basecamp, close to Mount Fishtail.
