11 Days Exploring Incredible Mardi Himal Trek, Nepal

Hosted by


Guided trip
There is a reason, and you can see this reason in an international travel magazine, why the Annapurna Region is famous for trekking. In the top 10 treks of the world, Annapurna Region has always been mentioned by an editor. Well, one may go to the extent to say, it has been mentioned accidentally by an editor. But the fact is a fact. There is more than something in the Annapurna Region to the trekkers who are also seekers of beauty and originality. We all cannot disagree, there are more trekking trails in the Annapurna Region than in any other trekking region of Nepal. New trekking trails are created by the locals; this is how Mardi Himal Trek was born in 2012 from one of the places of the Annapurna Region. According to most of the trekking agencies of Nepal, Mardi Himal Trek is going to capture the trekking minds of the people in the future. It is an inclusive trek, meaning it is a real trek without a mixture of unreal things. Mardi Himal Trekking is a fine example of trekking, and it matches the definition given by the Cambridge Dictionary. Hi, this is me, John, based in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Trip Itinerary


Day 1-2
Day 1: Arrival in Kathmandu (1400m) Arrive in Kathmandu at your favorite airlines; we will be waiting for you outside the airport because you are our clients, and you have great faith in us when you are in Nepal. At the same time, we want to create an impression in you because we believe the first impression is the lasting impression that traces on the back of your mind forever. If you arrive in Kathmandu in our office time, then we would, of course, take you to our office; otherwise, we would take you to the hotel where there are attached bathrooms, TV, and phone to meet your expectations. Give us a call on our mobile if you have any problems in such a place. Order tea or coffee and breakfast, all of them are free; just give a call from your hotel room.


Day 2-3
Day 2: Drive to Pokhara (827m) Duration: 6 hours When it comes to private transportation, we don’t think it is good to reserve a car because you are single, and even if there is a large group of 10 people, the bus is a better choice. The bus you are going to use is a tourist bus, on the way; you will see the villages and small towns that tell you what the rural life of Nepal is all about. It is a better way to know this, just by sitting on the seat of a bus, and what you will know in addition is you will see some of the greatest rivers of Nepal like the Trishuli and Marshyangdi, which are very much famous for rafting in Nepal. Observing all this, you will reach Pokhara, the city of lakes, and you will be spending your night by one of the lakes.


Day 3-4
Day 3: Drive to Phedi (1130m) and trek to Deurali (2100m) Duration: 30 minutes drive, 4-5 hours trek See an altitude in an itinerary; do you know the type of landscape that you are going to a walkthrough? The uphill trekking trail that you are going to follow takes you to the forest, villages, and steps; made of stones; arranged by human beings. The prominent village you will reach is Dhampus, and you are going to remember this village for offering you beautiful scenery of mountains. Another prominent village is Pothana, and you will remember this village equally for offering you beautiful scenery of mountains. Looking at these mountains and enjoying their indescribable features, you will reach Deurali.

Forest Camp,Mardi Himal,Rythm Hotel

Day 4-5
Day 4: Trek to Forest Camp (2520m) Duration: 6 hours Ascending means seeing more mountains, here you will see, Annapurna South, Fishtail, and Mardi. But it is not all about ascending; you will also see the mountain trees like Rhododendron, birch, oak, maple, hemlock, and daphnia, among them, you walk. So, you can say the trekking trail is taking you to the world of greenery, at the same time; it creates access to you to see the mountains mentioned above, and you will reach an open place later.

Mardi Himal Low Camp

Day 5-6
Day 5: Trek to Low Camp (3050m) Duration: 5 hours The trekking trail is lonely as well as silent; perhaps, you are the only person who is walking here. The trekking trail takes you to the forest that has a comfortable environment, meaning there is no need to be afraid of uncertainties, like the wild animals. The smell of the forest, meaning the organic smell of the forest, you can feel it. This is how you reach a Low Camp, which will reward you with the magnificent view of Fishtail Mountain, the best close-up, you can say up until now.

Mardi Himal High Camp

Day 6-7
Day 6: Trek to High Camp (3900m) Duration: 4 hours Trekkers know they have to ascend during the trek, and they take this activity from their hearts and prepared minds; we have observed this along with trekkers during Mardi Himal Trek. Since you are heading to a High Camp, you have to always think that you are getting more than you have thought. One thing is sure; you will always see the greatest view of the mountain you have ever thought of in your mind. High Camp is at such an altitude; you will see everything that comprises mountains, cliffs, hills, valleys, and ridges.

Mardi himal

Day 7-8
Day 7: Trek to Upper Viewpoint (4,250m), return to High Camp Duration: 4 hours See the sub-heading of the itinerary, that is, day 7, and there is a word return. When there is a word return in the itinerary, you have to start your trek early in the morning because you have to trek up and then return to the place from where you have started. There is no need to ask a question because the trekking trail goes up and up till it reaches its point from where you can see the most beautiful view of the mountains. Thanks to God, even at such an altitude, you will see a pasture where animals can graze in summer. Since you are heading to an Upper Viewpoint, one thing you can be sure about, the landscape is rocky.


Day 8-9
Day 8: Trek to Siding Village (1700m) Duration: 6 hours What a descent to 1700 m? Back to greeneries. There is a surplus as you compare this with the cold environment of an Upper Viewpoint. After all, a trek should have all the elements, from an uphill journey to a cold climate to plentifulness. Sidling village is an example of the last element. Enjoy a homestay part of the trek with the lovely people of Siding.


Day 9-10
Day 9: Drive to Pokhara Duration: 3 hours From Sidling, trek downhill to Lumle, a town, from where you drive to Pokhara, the city of lakes. The two important villages you will come across are Kalimati and Ghalel. Although the Annapurna Region is home to the Gurung and the Magar people, you will see in these villages the Brahmin people living, as well. All these people celebrate the festivals of light together, and it is called Diwali in Nepali as well as in Hindi.


Day 10-11
Day 10: Drive to Kathmandu Duration: 6-7 hours As you drive to Kathmandu on a bus, you will know the insights of Nepal, especially its rural life. There are small towns on the way, and you will also pass through small villages. The road or the highway goes by the river, Trishuli, one of the best rivers in Nepal for rafting. There are also many resorts on the way, and this river is the best for beach tourism. If you like, then you can enjoy rafting there, and the best thing is it always comes within your budget. The highway had been carved from the hills and the valleys, and there are green plants everywhere, a sign of fertility and prosperity. You will also see the terraced fields of rice.
