Exploring the Beauty of Mardi Himal Trek: A Journey of Tranquility and Majesty

The Mardi Himal Trek is an immersive experience. In just a few days, it offers breathtaking panoramas and cultural encounters, making it a remarkable journey for those seeking tranquility and natural splendor.

Panoramic Vistas: Captivating Close-Ups of Majestic Peaks

One defining feature of the Mardi Himal Trek is the opportunity to witness awe-inspiring close-up views of renowned peaks. Transitioning from Annapurna South to Hiunchuli and the iconic Fishtail (Machhapuchhre), trekkers enjoy a spectacle of towering Himalayan giants, seemingly within arm’s reach, from unique vantage points along the trail.

Rhododendron Heaven: Nature’s Colorful Canvas

Traversing vibrant rhododendron forests adds enchantment to the Mardi Himal Trek. Especially during spring, these lush woodlands burst into a kaleidoscope of hues, with each step becoming a journey through nature’s own canvas, revealing new shades of beauty.

Off the Beaten Path: Embracing Solitude in Nature’s Embrace

Unlike its more popular counterparts, the Mardi Himal Trek offers a sanctuary of solitude amidst nature’s grandeur. With fewer crowds and a tranquil atmosphere, trekkers fully immerse themselves in the serenity of the Himalayan landscape. This fosters a deeper connection with the mountains and the earth.

Cultural Immersion: Embracing Warmth and Hospitality

Beyond the natural wonders, the Mardi Himal Trek provides a glimpse into the rich cultural tapestry of the region. Trekking through traditional villages, visitors receive the warm hospitality of the Gurung and Magar people, gaining insights into their age-old traditions and way of life.

High Camp Spectacle: Nature’s Grand Theater

The journey culminates in a spectacle of unparalleled beauty at High Camp. Here, trekkers witness breathtaking sunrises and sunsets painting the sky with hues of gold and crimson against the backdrop of the majestic Annapurna range. It’s a moment of pure magic, etched forever in the memories of those fortunate enough to witness it.

Trip Itinerary

Welcome to the city of temples and the Himalayan country. At Tribhuvan International Airport, Adventure Glacier Treks will gladly greet you. Outside the airport terminal, our airport representative will be waiting for you with a placard with your name written on it. A private vehicle will transport you to the hotel from there. We will meet you on our office or your hotel which ever you feel comfortable and do Mardi Himal Trek briefing.  Overnight in Thamel, refresh yourself and walk around.

Drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara by tourist bus. Usually, “Tourist “ buses depart at 7:00 am from Kathmandu and take 6-7 hours depending on road conditions. Pokhara is starting hub to start treks like Poonhill Trek , Annapuran Base Camp Treks etc. After arriving at the hotel, taking rest at hotel or go for a walk around the Lakeside or maybe paddle some of the lakes. Overnight at the hotel.

After eating breakfast in Pokhara, we will drive for around 40 minutes before beginning our Mardi Himal hike. We'll ascend the stairs starting at Phedi. Up till we get in Dhampus, a Gurung settlement renowned for its breathtaking views of the Annapurna range, Lamjung Himal, and Manaslu, the trail ascends all the way to Pothana through rhododendron and pine forests. We'll keep climbing until we arrive in the sleepy village of Pothana, which is surrounded by trees and offers stunning mountain vistas. The TIMS/ACAP card will also be provided to us at the Pothana checkpoint. Pothana overnight

We will begin our walk after a hearty breakfast with a steep ascent through dense forest and stunning views of the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna mountains as per we discussed in our Mardi Himal Trek briefing . We might see some of the unusual animals and birds that call the forest home if we're lucky. We will arrive at the woodland camp after around five hours of walking, then overnight at Forest Camp .

The rhododendron and juniper forest is skirted by the trail as it ascends steeply from the Forest camp to the High camp. The daily routine includes a higher climb to get over a hill, followed by a period of time spent mostly level before beginning the climb once more. We will be richly rewarded with stunning views of Mount Macchapuchre and the Annapurna range once we reach the summit. Spend the night at High Camp.

To truly appreciate the breathtaking morning view of the Annapurna range from the high camp, we'll get up early. We will begin the ascent to Mardi Himal Base Camp, which is located at 5300 meters, after breakfast. The hike is challenging since it involves walking along a rocky, narrow track. The breathtaking mountain views and clean surroundings at the Mardi Himal Base Camp richly reward the day's tough effort. We will circle back to high camp after spending some time at base camp. High Camp or Low Camp for the night (depending on our choice and pace).

Reversing our steps, we'll descend steeply to low camp, from where we'll hike through the jungle to Mardi Khola. After a beautiful trek through the forest and along the river, we will arrive in the friendly and welcoming community of Siding. Sleep in Siding Village overnight

After a filling breakfast, we will begin our slow descent to Lumre. The trail gently descends through grasslands and passes through scenic Tamang and Gurung villages as it follows the curve of the Mardi River valley. Our vehicle will be waiting for us at Lumre for the 1.5-hour trip to Pokhara. Overnight in a Pokhara hotel.
