Mardi Himal Trekking is a Relatively a newer trekking trail in Annapurna Region. Heading to the base of Mardi Himal (5,553m), this trekking experience is something uniquely distinct and adventurous due to its peculiar geography and spellbinding mountain ranges. Typically Mardi Himal Trek is the best destination for those trekkers who wish to encounter and embrace the nature from up-close. And on doing so, trekkers are also gifted with the Gurung culture and hospitality on the illustrious trail.
Mardi Himal Trek journey begins from Pokhara and officially initiating trek from Phedi to Deurali. The trail goes along small winding paths, easy at the beginning transforming into steep hills up to Forest Camp. Through the alpine forests with magical rhododendron blooming, the trekkers start stepping in the jungle on the top of a ridge. The trail drops steeply and then slowly gains height and then back onto the ridge escalating to High Camp. The landscape changes quite abruptly into a rugged high mountain landscape, with amazing views of Mt. Machhapuchhre (6,997m) ahead and Mt. Annapurna (8,091m) in the south. As the trekkers ascend 3-4 hours, Mardi Himal Base Camp is right on their feet which offers a spectacular close up view of the entire Annapurna range, Mt. Machhapuchhre (6997m), Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m), Manaslu range, Hiunchuli (6441) and the Mardi Himal (5553m) itself.
After the witnessing the mesmerizing view from the Base camp of Mardi Himal, we head back to High Camp and then head to Siding. From Siding the trek follows the trail towards Lwang. Basically a village, Lwang offers homestay inhibited majorly by the Gurung, Magar, Brahmin, and so on. Eventually, the trekkers will trek to Pokhara and later to their destination i.e. Kathmandu. The most favorable months to trek here are Mar-May and Sept-Nov as the skies get clear and the trails are dry.
