We love to travel independently but this time around we decided to book through an agency as we had very little time in Nepal. We didn’t want to waste our time planning the logistics. One of our friends recommended Third Rock Adventures to us. It would suffice to say that we were not disappointed. We were a bit apprehensive to use a local company but Naba was so helpful and forthcoming with the information that we booked our trip with them right away after the first conversation. We wanted awesome mountain views but less crowds and a trek that would last for about a week. Among the recommended treks, we chose Mardi Trek. We trekked during early winter (first week of December).
Some parts of the trail were covered in thick snow and there were very few trekkers on the trail. The pristine snow covered views and the frozen walls of the Fishtail Peak are etched in our memories. The humorous stories shared by our guide Shiva and Thule, our good-natured porter, kept us in good spirits. I sure am not surprised with the sheer number of positive reviews Third Rock has garnered. They are really good at what they do. Thumbs up to their excellent service! Would plan more trips with them in future.
