A new route that was launched in 2012 is the 9 days Mardi Himal Trek. This journey, which enters the Annapurna Sanctuary Area, is becoming more and more well-known. The Mardi Himal Trek, though less well-known than the Annapurna Circuit Trek and the Annapurna base Camp Trek, offers breathtaking views of the Mardi Himal (5,587m), as well as snow-capped peaks like Annapurna I (8,091m), Annapurna South (7,219m), Machhapuchre (6,997m), and Gangapurna Himal (7,454m), making the trek well worth the money.

You will travel through winding roads in a dense rhododendron forest with Mardi Himal Trekking. The scenery will change into high mountains as you continue to climb, providing a stunning vista of Machhapuchhare, popularly known as Fishtail. The forests you go through typically have a variety of trees, bamboo, and chirping plants. The greatest method for avoiding crowds is to do this Mardi Base Camp Trek. You may view a variety of wild animals, like Himalayan Thar, long-tailed langurs, and birds like Danphe, Kalij, and Monal, on this trip through the forests.

The Mardi Himal Trek is the only trip in Nepal that takes you quickly to an altitude of at least 4,000 meters. With more alternatives for lunch and dinner as well as lodging, the expanding number of tea houses along the trail has made this short journey simpler for individuals of all fitness levels. Mardi Himal Trekking is a hidden gem that allows hikers to take in stunning mountain views, come face-to-face with wildlife in lush woods, and cross rivers and hills all in one trip. Follow the narrow, winding roads through the jungle until you emerge from it to see the magnificent vistas of the Mardi Himal, Annapurna South, and Machhapuchre from the Badal Danda.

The Mardi Himal Trek Itinerary begins in Kathmandu, where you may explore the city's most important world heritage sites before flying to Pokhara. Kande, where your major trekking experience will begin, is only a short drive from Pokhara. You will ascend from Kande to Australian Camp, then Pothana, to arrive at Pitam Durali, where you will spend the night. The next day your Mardi Trek Journey will then begin from Pitam Durali toward Low Camp, passing via Forest Camp, and Rest Camp. You will spend the night at Low Camp. You will arrive at High Camp the next day. You will hike down to Siding from Mardi Himal Base Camp after setting off from High Camp in the morning. You will ride a shared jeep to Pokhara from Siding, which will conclude your Mardi Himal Trek in Annapurna Region. You will get the chance to boat on Phewa Lake and discover wonderful locations in Pokhara. Your great Mardi Himal trekking journey will then come to a conclusion as you ride a tourist bus back to Kathmandu.

Useful Info

Mardi Himal Base Camp Trek Best Time and Season: 

Autumn, spring, summer, and winter are the four seasons that the Mardi Himal Trek experiences. Autumn and spring are the ideal times of year for the Mardi Himal Base Camp Trek out of 4.

  • Autumn - September, October and Novemver

For the Mardi Himal Trek, autumn is the ideal season. September, October, and November are the months that comprise autumn. One of the busiest times of year for trekking in Nepal. The Annapurna region's surroundings grow clearer in the post-monsoon season of autumn because of the summer's rainy weather. The region's picturesque splendor and visibility of the mountain ranges appear to be superb.

  • Spring - March, April and May

The second-best season of the year for Mardi Himal Trekking is spring. March, April, and May are the months in which it occurs. Various plants sprout and bloom in the spring, including rhododendrons. It's that time of year when everything outside turns green and rejuvenated. During this month, you may experience the aroma of many flowers as you hike to the Mardi Himal. This time of year is when the splendor of the natural flora and animals is at its height. Because it is the pre-monsoon season, the sky is often clear, giving you a clearer perspective of the mountains.

Food or Meal on Mardi Himal Trek: 

  • Breakfast

Breakfast is the first meal you eat after the long fast from the previous night. To build up a lot of endurance for walking for a long time on the route, the first meal must be nutritious and pleasant. You will be given a variety of meals for breakfast, including bread and chapati, eggs, porridge, soup, pancakes, and more.

  • Lunch

In Nepal, the lunchtime meal is regarded as the main course. Therefore, Dal-Bhat is prepared in all teahouses as the main dish along with many other kinds. In recent years, a significant portion of foreign trekkers has also started to favor Dal-Bhat as their lunch option. Rice, noodles, pasta, pizza, hamburgers, dumplings, desserts, and a variety of other foods are typically available at teahouses for lunch.

  • Dinner

Dinner is a tasty meal after a strenuous day of walking. Similar types of lunch and evening meals are available at the teahouses along the trail. The majority of Nepalese enjoy eating dal baht for lunch and supper, although foreign visitors prefer to select different dishes. The teahouses make a variety of hot and cold refreshments available in addition to serving breakfast, lunch, and supper.

Accommodation on Mardi Himal Trek: 

The Mardi Himal Base Camp Trip is a teahouse trek that passes via guesthouses. The Mardi Himal Trek Route travels through a sparsely populated, extremely isolated area of the Annapurna range. As a result, the lodging options are also modest and provide few services. The bathrooms might be communal or private, and the rooms are typically tiny. The majority of the rooms are twin sharing, however, if you prefer a single room, please let us know in advance so that we may try to get one for you. But we can't guarantee it. The alternatives will decrease as the height rises, especially during the busiest hiking season, when hotels are fully occupied.

Mardi Himal Base Camp Trek Difficulty: 

One of the most underappreciated hikes in Nepal is the Mardi Himal Trek. A lot of hikers are unaware of this lovely trail. This journey has a moderate difficulty rating from novice hikers, however, it is easy in comparison to other hikes like the Everest and Manaslu Trek. The lengthy hikes uphill are sometimes a little challenging for beginners. But rest stops along the route make the trip enjoyable. High-end hiking equipment, like ropes and ice picks, is not necessary. Reaching Base Camp from High Camp is the most difficult portion. This section of the trek is difficult because of the steep, rocky slopes. The routes along this trek's itinerary are rugged and unpaved. When it rains, it might be a little more challenging since the track becomes slippery. Forests also get slick in the rain. However, getting enough rest and drinking enough water will ensure a successful and enjoyable walk.

Travel Insurance for Mardi Trek: 

The danger of altitude sickness is quite minimal on the Mardi Trek, which is rated as mild. However, the trip may encounter unanticipated or unplanned occurrences including accidents, illnesses, floods, landslides, or abrupt climatic changes. Therefore, Mardi Base Camp Trek requires travel insurance. Medical and emergency extradition, as well as high-altitude helicopter rescue and evacuation costs, must be covered by insurance coverage. Based on the experiences of our clients, we can suggest insurance providers to you, but we don't really offer insurance. After making your trek reservation, we kindly ask that you provide us with comprehensive insurance paperwork. In an emergency, we will quickly rescue you by using your insurance.

Acute Mountain Sickness and Remedies during Mardi Himal Trekking: 

In Nepal, altitude illness is sometimes referred to as acute mountain sickness (AMS) or altitude sickness. Altitude sickness symptoms often appear in Nepal at altitudes more than 3,000 meters. Due to the elevation of Mardi Base Camp (4500 meters), Acute Mountain Sickness might be a risk. Altitude sickness symptoms include headaches, exhaustion and laziness, a dislike of food, nausea, and vomiting, body tingling, dizziness, shortness of breath, and nasal bleeding.

Stop ascending to higher elevations as soon as you begin to experience AMS symptoms and take some time to relax. Trek to a lower elevation if your condition does not improve. To keep your body hydrated, remember to consume lots of water and other drinks. Acetaminophen like Tylenol or another pain reliever like Ibuprofen 500 mg should be taken if you are experiencing extreme pain. Two times daily, take 250 mg of the altitude sickness drug acetazolamide.

Recommended equipment List for Mardi Himal Trek: 

Your hiking clothing and equipment are one of the most crucial and significant things during Mardi Himal Trekking. The right tools include a sleeping bag, a set of High Mountain walking boots, poles, a duffel bag, necessary warm and comfortable hiking clothing, warm socks, gloves, sunglasses, sunscreen, and so on. Another important consideration is that the finest gear for hiking in the high mountains should be light, breathable, and comfortable. Ensure that you have all the required paperwork, records, and concepts for restricted and non-restricted items.

    Incredible 1st Trek Experience with Green Valley Nepal Treks

    We went on the Mardi Himal Trek. Arjun, the proprietor, made it easy to organize this vacation. He ensured that we were cared for both before and after the trek, making our first trip to Nepal wonderful. The trek with our porter and guide, Bishow, was fantastic. Bishow gave us the impression that we were well-informed about what to expect each day, how to dress, and how to ensure that we drank plenty of water and had breaks. Any tour with Green Valley Nepal Treks is something I wholeheartedly endorse! We'll surely return to join them on another expedition!

FAQs
  • The lodging is modest when compared to a city's finest hotel or resort. The room has basic furnishings including single, double, triple, twin, etc. beds.

  • There are showers at Deurali and Siding. Both the High Camp and the Rest Camp lack showers. You may use a bucket to take a shower if you want to.

  • In Mardi Himal, clean drinking water is provided by almost all teahouses. As a result, you don't need to worry about the water's purity when hiking. Simply bring a water bottle, and fill it up at the teahouse each morning before you go out on your hike. We do suggest that you bring water purifiers or pills, nevertheless, in order to cleanse the water before consuming. The shops and teahouses along the route also sell bottled water. However, because buying bottled water just increases the amount of plastic trash on the trekking path, we do not advise doing so. Never consume water from the tap, a nearby river, or any other natural source, either.

  • Only the urban regions of Nepal, including Kathmandu and Pokhara, accept credit cards. Credit cards are not accepted when you enter the hiking area. You must thus have adequate cash on hand.
