Mardi Himal Trekking is embarking from Kande, about an hour drive by private car/jeep from Lakeside of Pokhara. The stunning valley of Pokhara foreshadows an exciting moderate adventure, and the real foothill excursion begins through the peaceful setting of the meadows. It is a journey into the wild as you hardly see the crowded towns; instead, the entire region with beautiful forests, including oak and rhododendron. Some rest campsites include basic lodges with neat and clean accommodation and meal services. 

Furthermore, the trail to Mardi Himal guides through the Mardi Himal Trekking Forest Camp,  Mardi Himal Trekking Low Camp, and Mardi Himal Trekking High Camp. Some sections are straight uphill trails, and you walk through the hill ridge. The Mardi Himal Trekking trail becomes much more adventurous during winter with snowfall, which requires special attention. A week-long trek to Mardi Himal Base Camp escorts excitingly to the Himalayan heart at 4500 meters above sea level. The soaring peaks of Mt. Mardi Himal, Mt. Annapurna South, Mt. Machhapuchhre, and Himchuli offer delightful memories, which fill the excellent vibes of adventurous souls.

Diverting from the usual route from the same trail, we recommend concluding the trek in Siding, walking further via Lwang, and experiencing the ethnic hospitality and the local cultural influence. Usually, drive or flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara. The Mardi Himal trekking is the starting point of Annapurna Base Camp.

Major Attractions in Mardi Himal Trekking

                         Pokhara

Pokhara is a picturesque town with three giant Lakes and has the Himalayan backdrop of Mount Annapurna, Fishtail, and Dhaulagiri. It is equally impressive with incredible vistas of caves and waterfalls. So Pokhara is one of the prime attractions of the trip, where you encounter domestic and international travelers. Pokhara is a gateway to trekking in the Annapurna region. Travelers and trekkers can enjoy a full day with various activities like boating in the Phewa Lake, paragliding and ultralight flight, Sarangkot sunrise tour; exploring caves, mountain museum, waterfalls, and River gorge. Visiting the world peace pagoda is another remarkable thing while in Pokhara.

                        The magnificent viewpoint of Mardi Himal Trekking

Mardi Himal Base Camp (4500 meters altitude) offers the best Himalayan views of Mount Annapurna, Mardi Himal, and Machhapuchhre peaks. Even the high Camp and upper viewpoints are excellent locations for the dramatic Himalayan opinions and the hilly gorges. Enjoy the miraculous views and arrest them with great snaps on your camera.

                        Annapurna Conservation Area Project of Mardi Himal Trekking

Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) is located in the northwest part of Nepal and was established in 1986. The conservation area covers an area of 7629 sq. km. ACAP is prosperous in biodiversity and is a wealthy part that provides shelter for 1,226 species of flowering plants, 105 mammals, 518 birds, 40 reptiles, and 23 amphibians. The colorful woods of rhododendron also dominate the Mardi Himal trekking route. Want to see the blooming rhododendron? Then trek to Mardi Himal in the spring season. 

                     Meals and Accommodation in Mardi Himal Trekking

Meals and accommodation plans vary from city to mountain terrain. The urban areas like Kathmandu and Pokhara have abundant food and accommodations ranging from standard to 5-star hotels (we usually book 3-star category accommodations for you in the cities, but they can upgrade by covering the extra cost you). You have various choices in the meals, but the meals are not included in the town.

During the Mardi Himal trekking, the accommodation option will be in lodges. They are basic but offer neat and clean accommodation with a hot shower and bathrooms. Three meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) are included in the trekking, where you can have variations in meals, including typical Nepali, Indian, Chinese, and continental cuisines. 

                        Transportation in Mardi Himal Trekking

When you book the Mardi Himal Trekking package, we include all the required transportation, from airport pick up and drop, private vehicle for sightseeing, Kathmandu- Pokhara-Kathmandu round trip by air-conditioned tourist bus/jeep/car. Alternatively, we can change this plan to Kathmandu-Pokhara domestic flight at your request. Also, the package includes transfers from Pokhara to Kande and Siding to Pokhara for trekking. Except for local transportation during trekking, all ground transportation is private air-conditioned tourist vehicles.

Best season for the Mardi Himal Trekking

Spring and autumn are the best preferable trekking seasons for the Mardi Himal Trekking. The trekking begins in March and ends in May as a first-season trip with great weather and clear views. Another season starts in September and ends in November. As the trekking is a moderate journey, the best time without a crowd is in winter- literally in December and January.

Trekking to Mardi Himal in spring is fantastic to explore various rhododendron species with beautiful blooming. Walking days are excellent, with brilliant views of the Annapurna range and Mardi Himal. Besides spring and autumn, hiking in winter becomes pretty challenging with a heap of snow on the route. But the trail becomes isolated, and the snowy surroundings look incredibly brilliant.

Mardi Himal Trekking Map

Boundless Adventure provides a Mardi Himal trekking map for every client. The trekking map mentions all the route options for Trekking in Mardi Himal, overnight stay every day’s camps, and altitude details.

Difficulty in Mardi Himal Trekking

Mardi Himal Trekking is a moderate journey, so the trek is defined as moderately adventurous. The route consists of significant uphill and downhill climbs with stone staircases that add many challenges after beginning the tour from Kande and passing through the rhododendron woods. Some sections are steeply up and down, along with the walk through the rocky moraines. However, the Mardi Himal trekking trail becomes quite challenging in winter as it becomes a snowy route. So, special attention is required while walking through the sloppy hill ridge around the alpine territory of Mardi Himal Base Camp and Upper View Point. The Mardi Himal trek leads you to around 4500 meters altitude, so the higher part of the trek is pretty much adventurous with less oxygen.

Altitude Mountain Sickness in Mardi Himal Trekking

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) generally happens while ascending above 2700 meters altitude. As Mardi Himal is moderate trekking, we still cannot avoid the risk of catching high altitude sickness. But, you can feel the symptoms of altitude sickness before it can affect you. The symptoms of altitude sickness include tiredness, insomnia, and vomiting unexpectedly. So, you must drink plenty of water, rest while walking, eat meals on time, and drink hot soups with garlic and ginger. The ultimate altitude of Mardi Himal Trek is 4500 meters (Mardi Himal Base Camp), a thin air region of the Himalayas.

Note: If you are limited with time or are a senior citizen but still would prefer to explore the dynamic Himalayan sceneries and beautiful surroundings, Boundless Adventure organizes Mardi Himal Helicopter Tour from Pokhara
