Mardi Himal High Camp is another recently opened hiking path. It is less popular than the Everest or Annapurna base camps. But nowadays, it is one of the most popular trekking routes with domestic hikers. The number of tourists who wanted to experience this route also increased. This trip will take around five days and is approximately 40 kilometers long. It will begin in Pokhara and end there as well.

Mardi Himal Base Camp is partly accessible due to its proximity to Pokhara. Pokhara is Nepal’s second-largest city, which has an international airport. The fact that this journey is all about the ridge is one of the reasons you should choose to go on it. The ridgeline is incredible. It is a must-do for those who select an adventure based on the type of views they expect.

Not to mention how wonderful it feels to be free and as though you are in the mountains. Make the view up-close pictures of Machapuchare Peak. Mount “fishtail” is this magnificent peak because of the summit’s distinctive shape. It is one of Nepal’s famous mountains, yet ascending to its peak is impossible since it is so revered.

Mardi Himal Base Camp

You can have breathtaking up-close views of the whole Annapurna Range. A beautiful viewpoint is also nearby, around two hours from High Camp. It would help if you got up early enough for base camp. While in High Camp, enjoy the breathtaking dawn view of the Annapurna range.

After breakfast, you may trek to the 5300-meter Mardi Himal Base Camp. The hike is challenging since it involves walking over a rough, narrow track. You will get the mountain vistas and pure surroundings at the Mardi Himal Base Camp. Reward the day’s effort. Following your previous steps, you can return to high camp after spending some time in base camp.

Mardi Himal Weather

The weather pattern is predictable, like the rest of Nepal. Several months of the year have a chance of having clear mornings. But afternoon clouds and storms are frequent here. It might block your view, which is unpleasant if you travel in the clear winter months. In the morning, you will need to walk most of the time. , you experience these long, dull days when the clouds roll in.

Accommodations and Meals

Like an Everest base camp or an Annapurna base camp, the food and lodging are similar. The guest home offers cozy beds with blankets. You will eat food in their restaurants and serve various tasty hot meals.

Like any other trip in Nepal, lodging is inexpensive on the Mardi Himal trek. , but you must dine at your guesthouse twice daily, often for breakfast and dinner. The local community’s primary source of revenue is food.

There are a few campsites at lower elevations. Trekkers can camp or stay in Forest Camp and Low Camp guest rooms. It’s not a cost-saving choice because you spend the same whether you camp out or stay in a hotel room.

The guesthouses are typical; they have small rooms with beds—a bathroom with a shower outside, and dining space. More shared than private lodgings, such as 4-6 people rooms, are available on this route. In lower altitudes, guest houses have more facilities. You may have a private room with electricity and power outlets, such as Landruk or Siding.

They are fully booked in the busy months of March through early May. From Autumn, September through November is also complete. You need to reserve the room for the guesthouses. Holding the space in advance is better, especially at High Camp.

If you arrive without a reservation, they will find a spot for you to sleep. But it may be a seat in the dining room or something similar. You need to arrange it, or you can do it with your phone for a room reservation (2-3 days earlier should be okay).

Enjoy the Nepali food, Dal Bhat

They compete with teahouses along the way and are simple but cozy. You can get Everything you need at the guest house. Your water, snacks, tea, coffee, and all your main meals are inside the tea house. They can prepare Nepalese meals, such as Dal Bhat Tarkari( rice, lentils, and vegetables.

They will offer more Dal Bhat at the exact cost if you need more. Besides, you have various options depending on your needs and budget. They also serve Western, Indian, and Chinese cuisine. But, we recommend Nepali meals, Dal Bhat.

Dal Bhat is inexpensive, and you may meet you during a hike. In a similar vein, soups are an excellent choice for the starter. You can get different flavors because they sure have your trekking equipment list.

Yet, there aren’t any shops where you can buy clothing or supplies. You’ll thus be in trouble if you forget something or something breaks.

If you’re traveling alone, ensure you know how to survive outdoors. Be careful that there isn’t much at Mardi Himal Base Camp if you travel there. There isn’t a teahouse nearby. You cannot stay there. Grab a lunchbox from high camp. As a result, you have something to munch on throughout the day since there is nothing else.

The Best Season

Mardi Himal trekking is possible all year long. The months of December through February are generally winter. It is cold now but still this season, but you can hike here. You’ll have those beautiful winter days, with gorgeous views and fewer people. Post-monsoon months like September may be challenging. Sometimes, the monsoon lasts a little longer. But, if you wake up early, you can still enjoy some beautiful sights.

March to early May, when it’s springtime, might also be a great option. Rhododendron Roget, or rhododendron flower blossom, will appear at that time. Now, the rhododendrons will be in bloom. So the journey will be much more picturesque as a result.

Omit concludes that the best seasons are from September to November. The second season is in the fall and from March to May in the spring. There are stunning views and a sunny, mild climate.

Traveling from December to February is cold. But if you want to avoid crowds, it is a good time. You can spend some quiet time in nature. Be sure to have the proper equipment because winter can bring heavy snowfall.

In Nepal, the monsoon season lasts from June through August. You could experience rain and clouds. During the monsoon season, the surroundings are green when the water becomes clean. But heavy rain can landslide land, so it is not a good time for the Trek. You can see various seasonal flowers. Sometimes, snow-capped mountains in the distance may surprise you from a distance.

Altitude sickness

Altitude sickness won’t be a problem on the Mardi Himal high camp trek. But, there is a lower chance that you will experience the signs of altitude sickness. The most elevated overnight location of the Mardi Himal Trek is at 3550 meters. It is not a high enough altitude to cause altitude sickness.

But, if you’re not used to being at altitude, this climb will give you a taste. As you move upward for most of the trip, you climb above 14000 feet (4267 m). You may get tired of walking, but altitude sickness is uncommon here.

Suppose you suffer from altitude sickness or get breathless when ascending hills all day. Ywalkou can take a rest and make it easy walking. You may bring your time, stop at each camp, and make this last for a week. It would be wise to move and.

Permits

It would help if you got some permits from the tourism center in town. Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP) and a TIMS card are two permits. It will be needed for this Trek, which costs about $50. For these permissions, you should also have four square pictures. You may have photographed and printed them before traveling to Nepal. But you can get them taken and printed in the center and at nearby photo studios.

We will do it for you to get these permits. You need to give us a copy of your passport and your photographs. It will take a short time, and sometimes we arrange it in advance. You can place them in your ticket, which you agree must bring on the Trek.

Mardi Himal Trek: Fitness need

The Mardi Himal trek is a moderate-level trekking trail. Anybody can go for this Trek since it doesn’t need very high levels of physical fitness. This tour is open to everyone in excellent health but with a cheerful outlook. But, to appreciate and enjoy this Trek, you can do some exercise. You must engage in particular training, such as jogging and running.

Mardi Himal: Solo trip

You are free to go alone to Mardi Himal Base Camp. The route is effortless want and simple to follow. If you’d like, you may download a map of all the trails on your phone with a detailed view of the path and elevation. But honesty, it will not be necessary because the track is well-marked.

As you move along, you’ll see little white and blue marks that resemble paint on the trees. You can follow those marks and reach the destination. Most of the trek routes are good and maintained. , the majority of the way through the woodland has stone stairs.

Culture and religion

The most conspicuous aspect of this journey may be the absence of the region and culture. If you enjoy getting to know the locals and discovering their culture, you might skip this step.

That brings us to the part of this journey you might not want. We can only assume that the Mardi Himal high camp trek has a manufactured aspect.

You’ll get the impression that, before becoming a trekker, no one ever lived in this place’s home.

There are only a few small sets of tea houses along the road, which is excellent since no communities exist. Even if you are familiar with Nepalese culture, you miss some significant aspects.

Those usual Nepali shops that you sense are lacking. Unfortunately, those small shops don’t exist along the Mardi Himal route. , which is unfortunate to engage with locals when you get to the Mardi Himal base camp.

Is this Trek right for you?

The Mardi Himal, a high camp Trek, is ideal for someone new to hiking. Or you are going on a trek if you have the time. For specific hikes in Nepal, getting to the trailhead may require many days of bus or flight travel. Thus, keep it in mind while you plan your trip to Nepal.

Nothing was ever too much to ask for. When we needed one, our driver became like a friend for two weeks—a friendly face in a sea of humanity. Our Mardi Himal trek was incredible due to Phurba’s efforts.

He looked after us like family, and we never had to worry about anything. His choice of teahouses for us was exceptional upon completing our adventure to Nepal.

There is nothing I can find that I would have changed in my choices offered up by Puru. A three-night stay in Chitwan National Park was relaxing. It was the finale of our lifetime trip—hats off to Puru and his team.

What we enjoyed about working with Puru was his excellent Mardi Himal Trek. The timely responses to our questions and the ease in booking our trip. When we arrived, all the necessary details from beginning to end.

Our guide, Basu, was always concerned about our happiness. He is always worried about our safety. Our porter, Murari, worked to get our belongings from one teahouse to the next. Both guys always smiled and ensured the Mardi Himal trek went off without a hitch.

They will pick us up from the Airport and take us to our hotel. They handle all our permits. Our guide took care of food, lodging, and transportation. All we had to do was enjoy our trek, the wonderful people of Nepal, and the sights to discover.

Please do not hesitate to contact Puru and establish a program that works for you. He guided us on the best trek and made the necessary recommendations based on our wishes. We went there to celebrate my 60th birthday and the goal of trekking the Himalayas.

We would encourage you to spend your dollars with the company. They are appreciative of your business. We felt so good knowing that our dollars were going into our things. For all those we came in contact with and not for unnecessary expenses.

I’m happy to answer any other questions and hope this review is helpful.

Nepal is a beautiful country
Trekking is a unique experience
The Nepalese are warm and welcoming

I can recommend Above the Himalayan Trekking to anybody who wants to organize the Mardi Himal trekking holiday in Nepal. Puru couldn’t be more helpful, and the guides and porters he provided for us were nothing short of incredible!

We had a slight hiccup with a flight from Pokhara (due to the weather ). Puru was behind the scenes organizing alternatives. He arranged it before we had even had a chance to contact him.

Above the Himalaya Mardi Himal Base camp trek 12 days
Star Star Star Star Star

We have reruns from Nepal after our Mardi Himal Trek. It was a trip designed by “Above the Himalayan Trekking.” Initially, Puru, the Owner, and his team were professional and friendly since we were complete “newbies” to Nepal travel.

We relied on their advice, and Puru (Owner) kept in contact, asking how we were getting along. The guides both in Katmandu and the Himalayas were prompt and courteous. On the trek, we felt safe with Sitaram (direction) and Naren (porter), but some trails can be challenging.

They kept us informed and comfortable on our journey up the mountain. Azay guided and mentored us through Katmandu’s spiritual sites. They handle everything for us. We had prompt drivers to take us everywhere, all coordinated by Puru.

Even before the trip ended, I considered another journey with this company. They are trying hard to make Nepal an excellent place for adventure. We were in Hotels for three nights in both Katmandu and Pokhara.

The hotels were charming, with a typical breakfast buffet. The Tea Houses are what you hear: a little primitive, a little comfortable, but man! You are glad to be sleeping there at night.

We did a 7-day Mardi Himal Base Camp trek and a Katmandu city tour. The entire journey, beginning to end, was “sensory overload.” I knew it would be different, but at every turn of our trip, we were experiencing something new. We saw Nepal’s unique, beautiful, raw, and spiritual sides.

If you are adventurous, open-minded, curious, and mindful, you will have a great time in Nepal. They are an excellent choice for your travels for your Mardi Himal Trek.

We are a group of eight friends traveling together for five years. We trekked in the Alps, Carpathians, Pamirs, and Caucasus mountains.

This Mardi Himal trek was among the best of our tour of the organization, with amiable staff and good food.

We recommend Puru and his agency to travelers visiting the Nepali Himalayas.
