Mardi Himal Trek - Trip Overview

 

In recent years, if there's any most trekked destination in Nepal, its Mardi Himal trek. It gives the experience of a classic Annapurna Base Camp trek, which also made it trekkers' goto hotspot in recent years. 

Amidst the Annapurna region trekking destinations, the trek to Mardi Himal Base Camp is a favourite high-altitude location amongst aspiring trekkers. Hassle-free trek routes loaded with natural aesthetics have made it popular for different aged people. It is an ideal trekking destination that encourages Free Individual Trekking for solo explorers.

The eco-tourism route to Mardi Himal ascends through the western Annapurna region and sits East of Modi Khola. Vivid rhododendron woods, scenic valleys, and the towering Annapurna range alleviates the landscape around it. 

Mardi Himal Trek in recent years

In 1951, Mardi Himal, the 5,587 metres tall peak, was first climbed by British climber Basil Goodfellow. For a long time, people didn't know that Mardi could be a possible trekking route. It's not that Mardi lacks Annapurna aesthetics, but for different reasons, the Mardi Himal route was the least explored landscape in Annapurna Sanctuary. Due to its lesser promotion, people used to hike to Poonhill, Ghorepani, Ghandruk, and Annapurna Base Camp instead. 

But, out of the blue, the craze for a short Mardi Himal trek started in 2015. Thanks to the instant promotion by trekkers and social media influence in its publicity. 

Awesome Mountains Views from Mardi Himal Base Camp

This trek is scenic at every step. From Deurali at 2,100 metres, Low Camp at 2,970 metres, and the towering viewpoint of High Camp at 3,900 metres, every view is inspiring.

You'll have to pay for hot showers and charging power banks and cellphones. We recommend our valued clients carry sleeping bags and pillowcases for comfortable sleep. 

At Pokhara and Kathmandu, you'll get a three-star hotel for accommodation. These star-rated hotels offer luxurious services for you. You'll have quality time at Pokhara after returning from the trek. 
 

 

You'll get basic meals at places like Deurali, Low Camp, and High Camp. Meals cost more as we hike close to Mardi Himal High Camp. 

You'll get an omelette, toasted bread, soups, porridge, and mashed potatoes for breakfast. 

Nepali Dal Bhat, a staple diet comprising vegetables, rice, lentil soup, and pickles, is best for lunch. Dumplings, noodles, tenduk, and Thukpa(noodles with vegetables and soup) are also choices for lunch and dinner. 

At places like Dhampus, the menu items also offer continental dishes.

The highest altitude we'll reach in the Mardi Himal trek is 4,500 metres at the viewpoint. Altitude sickness is due to a lack of oxygen in the body and appears at around 3,500 metres altitude. Thus, altitude sickness is unavoidable, not that you can't hike, but it worsens if you lack medication on time. 

Altitude sickness symptoms include headaches, nausea, diarrhoea, dizziness, vomiting, and shortness of breath. These symptoms may appear light for some, but for others, it becomes worse. There are no casualties of the Mardi Himal trek among trekkers, but altitude sickness is not a thing to ignore. 

Report to the trek guide immediately if you feel discomfort or any of these symptoms. Our trek guides possess command in first aid and mountain medicine and can handle altitude sickness situations comfortably. 

To avoid altitude sickness, try drinking 100 ml of water each half-hour hike. Also, try to drink electrolyte drinks to balance the essential ions in the body. To avoid dehydration, never consume caffeinated or alcoholic beverages during this trek. 
 

We don't buy travel insurance for any clients. So, we request you have travel insurance before flying to Nepal.

While trekking at a high altitude, you must be and feel safe. Buy decent travel insurance which covers your medication bills and the emergency helicopter evacuation in the worst case.

It lets you hike without worrying about possible mishaps. We make sure that everything goes well and ensure your utmost care.
