    Easy Treks & Expedition’s Mardi Himal Trek is an excellent choice to escape from crowded treks and cities which lie within the Annapurna region of Nepal. It is one of the most popular treks because it is much less crowded and hectic than other treks during popular times and it is an enjoyable trekking route that requires less exertion than many others.

    Mardi Himal Trek is an unseen gem of Nepal that lets you explore solitary trails complete with dense forest, interesting villages, valleys, terraced farms, and astonishing streams. During the trek, you will enjoy breathtaking views of Annapurna, Machhapuchhre (fishtail), Hiunchuli, and Mardi Himal. The trail also includes walking around a stunning rhododendron forest which looks especially amazing during March-April. The Mardi Himal Trek is not only the best choice for enjoying the beauty of the mountains but also for getting a taste of unspoiled culture and villages.

    Your journey will start with sightseeing around Kathmandu and visiting Pokhara. From there you move towards the goal of Mardi Himal via various mountains, timberlands, valleys, lakes, cascades, and more. The Mardi Himal Trek begins in Pokhara, from where you take a drive to Kande and trek to Pothana or Deurali. At that point, you move towards Low Camp, then up to High Camp, and lastly to Mardi Himal Base Camp. After visiting Mardi Himal Base Camp, you trek down to Siding and then drive back to Pokhara by private vehicle. You can also extend the trip if you want to climb to reach Mardi Himal Summit which is equally stunning in comparison to other mountain ascents.

    This 10-day Mardi Himal Trek is a very popular trek in the Annapurna region because the difficulty level is medium, anyone with a basic level of fitness can do the trek. With years of experience in Nepal Trekking, Easy Treks & Expedition will make your trek the most memorable experience of your life.

    The weather and temperature of Mardi Himal are relatively unpredictable. The weather is changeable throughout the year with three seasons: summer, spring, and winter. Spring is the best time for trekking because the sky is blue, the sun is usually shining, and the view of the mountain is at its best. The temperature is usually around 36 degrees or below and at night the temperature drops and becomes cool. Winter is not the best time to visit Mardi Himal because the temperature is below zero degrees. The weather becomes dry, and a huge mass of snow covers the mountains. Monsoon weather starts from 1st of June and ends on the 31st of August, at this time the temperature ranges between 10 to 30 degrees. During monsoon season the view of the mountain is not so clear and there may be heavy rainfall. Therefore, the best time to trek in Mardi Himal is in either November and early December, as it has the best weather and temperature, or in Spring between February to April.

    How difficult is the trek

    Mardi Himal Trek is a medium-difficulty trek that explores the beauty of Nepal. The upper-view Mardi Himal trek is not too difficult. The path of this trek is as rough and rocky as most typical Nepal paths. The forest side becomes slippery if it rains, however. The hardest path of this trek is going from High Camp to Base Camp as it takes quite a long time, so, an extra day is preferred.

    There is a right turn in Deurali signposted “Forest Camp” the trail is through the jungle, at first up, then undulating on the top of a ridge. There is a section just over halfway where the trail drops steeply and then slowly gains height and then back onto the ridge and into Forest Camp (2600m) after about 4-hour trekking. After Lunch in Forest Camp, you will trek to Rest Camp (2605, 5-6 hours walking), and overnight at Lodge.

    Day 5: Trek to High camp (3900m/12792ft)

    The trail leaves Rest Camp again in the jungle, but the trees soon start to get smaller and after about one hour you will break out of the jungle and onto the open ridge with spectacular views of Machhapuchhre ahead and Annapurna South to your left. The trail then undulates along the ridge, and after about 5-6 hours of trekking you will arrive at High Camp (3550m). and then overnight at Lodge.
