Imagine Hiking up to the height of 4500 meters to Mardi Himal Basecamp 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 combo Trek and Paragliding trip. The Paragliding pilots have been named the NATGEO adventurer of the year 2012. They are Sano Babu Sunuwar and Lakpa Tsheri Sherpa. These two Nepali guys climbed Everest, took off on a paraglide from the Summit all the way to the Sun Koshi river and kayaked all the way 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 all the way from Pokhara for the flight the next day.
The Trek to Mardi Himal has only been favorite in recent years. Previously only expedition style trekking used to be run on this route by some trekking companies of Nepal and the individual hikers stayed off this trail as there were not much lodging facilities. Thanks to some enterprising locals, now the path has some lodges and guest houses making it possible for FIT to trek in this route. The trail takes you east of Annapurna Base camp trail and eventually to the Mardi Himal Basecamp very close to Mount Fishtail.
