The Mardi Himal trek is a relatively new and hence, a less explored trekking route in Nepal. Away from the busier and more crowded trekking routes, the trek is an ideal getaway for those interested in trekking and also as well for the beginners as prior experience isn’t needed. The trail is small and winding, passing through villages, beautiful and dense rhododendron forests, narrow valleys up to High Mountain landscapes with homestays and tea houses along the entire route. The trek offers visitors a chance to experience the culture and traditions of the local communities, to feast their eyes upon the incredible sceneries, endless diversity of flora and fauna of the region, and views of mountains such as Mardi Himal, Machhapuchhre (Fishtail), Annapurna south and Hiuchuli. All these elements make this one an ideal trekking experience in Nepal.
The trek begins after an hour’s drive from Pokhara to Kande. Trekkers shall make their way up towards Australian camp and then down to Pothana 1890m and again up to Deurali 2100m. The trail then passes through dense rhododendron forests into Forest Camp 2600m. The trail continues getting steeper through more forests with occasional glimpses of Annapurna South before getting into Low Camp (2970m).
The trail then leads into High Camp 3550m (mistakenly shown at 3900m in trekking maps). The landscape changes as you get closer to High Camp. Trekkers will suddenly find themselves in a rocky high mountain landscape, with amazing views of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Mardi Himal, and Machapuchre. Trekkers can then head further towards the Mardi Himal base camp at 4500 which is about 4 hours from High camp and again make their way back towards High Camp in the same day.
