Tour Overview

With an elevation of 5587 m, Mardi Himal is situated within the Annapurna zone. Mardi Himal Trek is becoming more popular day by day due to the shorter distance and exceptional views. If you don’t have enough time to reach either ABC or EBC, then this is a better option for Mardi Himal Trek 5 days. If you want to spend time with the locals. Mardi Himal Weather and Package will have comfortable homes ready to serve you.

The high camp of Mardi Himal is situated at a height of 3850 m. This is the trek’s highest point of rest. Annapurna South seems to be near enough to smash at a rock, and Machhapuchhre is close enough to touch himself.

The 5-day trek begins in Pokhara and ends in Pokhara as well. The trekking starts at the beautiful Phewa Lake from Pokhara by boating. You’ll travel to Kande after boating and spending time there. We’re going to reach Pothana with amazing views of the snow-capped mountains on the trail. And we’re going on the road from Low Camp to High Camp from there.

Inside two days of trekking, you will encounter a picturesque mountain setting overlooking green hills, snow-capped mountains, and walks through the lush forest with beautiful rhododendron and oak. On the way to Trek, it will be a fantastic moment to see the mountain ranges of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Mt. Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) and Manaslu. Mardi Himal trek 5 days is the shortest trekking trail which reaches to 4500 m high altitude as well as takes only 5 days trekking from Pokhara. This trek is one of the best alternative trek of Annapurna region so we will suggest for every visitor. 

Detail Itinerary

 The trip starts from Pokhara, drive to Kande on the Pokhara Baglung highway for about 40 minutes. The path climbs to the peak at 2,060 m for about 1 1⁄2 hours. The lodge settlement clearing in the forest is known as' Australian camp.' The place is scenic with panoramic views of the Annapurna range and the valley of Pokhara. The trail winds further to the mountain pass called' Deurali' through the rhododendron forest. Deurali, wedged between Annapurna South and Mardi Himal, overlooks the Modi Khola gorge.

Following the ridge, the trail climbs slowly through the rhododendron trees. The low camp has some tea houses in the forest clearing. It seems much closer to the view of Mt Fishtail and Mardi Himal. You are closer to the clear blue sky with a glimpse of the Himalayan foothill layers and the sweeping south valley. Note: In agreement with the guide, you can walk 1 more hr to Badal Danda (Cloud Hill) above the treeline. Badal Danda has only one cabin.

 Higher up the mountain, the trail climbs to Mardi Himal and Mt Fishtail. We leave the tree line from Badal Danda and arrive in the shrubby alpine forest. Annapurna South, Huinchuli and Fishtail snow capped peaks appear on either side in a distance above the deep valley. After the climb, the high camp is a small pasture with three lodges. You're above the clouds here and near to the snow-capped peaks.

 

 With steep climbs and longer walks, the day trip is more challenging than other days. With rough and steep rocky steps at some stages, the trail becomes more vertiginous. The first steep climb to the top of the ridge, marked as MBC (Mardi Himal Base Camp), will take about 2 hours. The actual base camp, however, will take another 2 hours along the mountain. The view along the hill is incredible. While Mardi Himal and Mt Fishtail appear just above us, views of Annapurna I, Gangapurna and Annapurna III appear at a distance as well.

Down to the basin of the Mardi River and return to Pokhara. It will take about one and a half hours to get to Pokhara in a four-hour time. The first hour is a dirt road drive.

The trek was opened officially in 2012 and remains untouched. There are limited basic facilities for tea houses. This is a relatively easy and untouched short trek not far from Pokhara. Yet with cultural experience, beautiful forest walks, and alpine scenery, it is highly diverse. The altitude rise becomes more incremental as the trail mainly remains along the mountain.
