Trip Overview

The Mardi Himal route has been popular with campers for nearly a decade and lies under the spectacular Machhapuchhre (Fishtail). The trek goes through not only a wonderful rhododendron forest but also leads to a rugged mountain backdrop with a breathtaking view of the Mardi Himal. You can reach the Mardi Himal base camp overlooking all of the Annapurna range.

Similarly, this trek starts from Kande-1 hour drive from Pokhara- downhill to Pothana then up to Deurali through a jungle trail that brings you to the ridge into Forest Camp. Then, we leave the forest camp, trek to the low camp, and move towards an open ridge with views of Machhapuchhre. Further, we continue trekking to reach Mardi Himal Base Camp (4500m). Finally, we move to high camp (3580m) around 4 and half hours where the Annapurna mountain range is seen full-fledged.

After that, we trek down to the low camp (2990m). From here, we trek to Siding, and Liwang villages and drive back to Pokhara. We arrive in Kathmandu from Pokhara and the trek ends here.

In 2011 Mardi Himal trek opened officially their tea houses available from starting all the way to high camp.

Best time to visit

The best time to go trekking is Mid-September/ October to early December and between March to May.

The things you need before the trekking

  • Trekking permits from Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) and Tourism Information Management System (TIMS card).
  • Map
  • Adventure gears and accessories.

The hardest point for many people is going from the high camp to the base camp. Around 6-hour’s hike over the mountainous terrain. The best result in trekking is achieved by making it easier to trek by going slow. Do checkups and get counseling about altitude sickness. Going up very rapidly is one of the main reasons for this problem. Make your preparations with information and suggestion from your guides for a richer experience.
