During these months, the weather is mostly stable and the skies are clear, providing stunning views of the Himalayan ranges.

Along the trail, there are numerous tea houses that offer a variety of international cuisine. For those who prefer a Western-style breakfast, options like pancakes, omelettes, and toast are readily available.

    Safety Tips For Mardi Himal Trek

    The 5 days trek to Mardi Himal  is relatively short and easy compared to other treks in the region. It's important to take safety precautions to ensure a safe and enjoyable trekking experience. Here are some safety tips for the short Mardi Himal trek:

    • Hire an experienced and licensed guide for the trek. A local guide knows the trails well, the weather conditions, and how to deal with altitude sickness.
    • Train for the trek by doing cardio exercises and walking on uneven terrain. 
    • Get a medical checkup to ensure you're fit to trek. 
    • Bring proper clothing and gear like trekking shoes, warm clothing, and a rain jacket.
    • Drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration, which can cause altitude sickness.
    • Know the symptoms of altitude sickness, which include headache, dizziness, nausea, and shortness of breath. If you experience these symptoms, descend to a lower altitude immediately.
    • The trail can be rocky and uneven, so watch your step to avoid tripping or falling. Use trekking poles for added stability.
    • Keep a safe distance from animals like yaks and donkeys, which are common on the trail.
    • Be respectful of the local culture and customs. 
    • Dress modestly and ask for permission before taking photos of people or religious sites.
    • Don't venture off the trail, as it can be dangerous and damage the fragile ecosystem.
    • Bring a first-aid kit and know how to use it in case of emergencies.
    • Check the weather forecast before heading out and be prepared for changes in weather conditions. Don't trek in extreme weather conditions.
    Frequently Asked Questions

      Delicious typical Dal, Bhat, Tarkari, and some international cuisines like Tibetan, Chinese, Indian, etc. are available during Mardi himal Trekking. In beverages, you can get tea, coffee, flavored drinks, beer, vodka, etc.

    • Mardi himal is raised up in an altitude of 5,587 meters. We will trek up to base camp of Mardi himal and its altitude is 4,500meters. But, we are staying at High Camp and High Camp is elevated at 3,900 meters from sea level.

    • No, there is no age limit for Mardi himal trek. Individuals of any age group, any background, and any trekking level can do this 5 days Mardi himal trek. But be careful about your physical fitness and acclimatization.

    • Mardi himal trek offers an amazing perspective on Annapurna massifs, Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchre (Fishtail Mountain), Manaslu ranges and Mardi himal itself. Other major attractions during trek remain the forest camp, high Camp, Mardi himal view point, Badal danda (Cloud Hill), traditional village - sidding, forest of rhododendron magnolia, and oak, suspension bridge, wooden bridge, terrace field, cascades, and river.

    • Nepal is the second richest country in water resources. You can find streams, ponds, and taps all over the place throughout the trek. But, drinking water directly from natural sources might not be safe. It would be better for you to carry water purifier tablets. You can pour water in a bottle with a tablet and after some time drink it. In this way, you can enjoy water directly coming from natural sources. Mineral water and bottled water are also available on trail-side hotels and tea houses.

    • Mardi himal trek is an easy to moderate level trek. So, it won’t be difficult for those who are trekking for the first time. We have to cross a nasty trail for this trek, so it would be better to do some short trek or walk a nearby rocky way. Cardio practice like running, jogging, swimming are plus points for this trek.

    • There is access to landline phones with ISD services or you can get a network in some places. You can directly contact me from your own phone, whenever there is network access. Also, some hotels have Wi-Fi service. You need to pay an extra charge for using the internet service.

    • If you want to explore Mardi himal but are not able to walk then we also operate the Mardi himal helicopter tour. You can choose either a private helicopter tour or a group-joining tour depending upon your group size and comfort level.

    • Don’t panic, just don’t hesitate to inform guide about your problem. Our guide will take action according to the level of your sickness. If there are minor problems, then the guide will look after you and take you to the near hospital.

    • The permits required for Mardi himal 5 days trek are TIMS (Trekkers' Information Management System) worth USD 20 and ACAP (Annapurna Conservation Area Permit) worth USD 20. These permits are made available from Tourism Board Offices in Kathmandu and Pokhara.

    • The highest point we reach during Mardi himal trek is 4,500 meters, which is the height of the base camp itself. Per-day walking distance is shorter as well. The height won't be problematic as we stand there for some time only. But the steep ascent and descent, narrow and edged path, remains difficult to cover. This is leveled as a moderate level of trekking in Nepal, despite steeps. 

    • Yes, of course. You can do a solo trek to Mardi himal. But with a guided trek, there will be no problem in finding rooms, track, and direction.

    • The fourth day of the trek is the hardest day at Mardi himal trek. This day, we trek from high camp (3,580 meters) to Base Camp of Mardi (4,500 meters). Then trek down direct to Siding (1,750 meters). This day we have about 9 to 10 hours of walking; 4 hours of ascent (from high camp to base camp) and 5 to 6 hours of descent (from Base Camp to Sidding). Steep uphill and downhill trails with edges make the day the hardest of all.

      Mardi Himal Trek

      Mardi Himal Trek was an adventure at its best! The journey was filled with excitement and stunning vistas. The trail was diverse, offering everything from dense forests to alpine meadows. The final push to the base camp was challenging but incredibly rewarding. The sunrise over the Annapurna range was mind-blowing, and I got some of the best photographs of my life.

      Mardi Himal Trek in Nepal

       Mardi Himal Trek in Nepal provided the serene escape I needed from the chaos of daily life. The trek was well-organized, and our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The trail took us through pristine forests, charming villages, and terraced fields. The highlight, of course, was reaching the Mardi Himal Base Camp. The tranquility of the place and the stunning mountain views left me in awe. I felt like I was on top of the world. If you're seeking a peaceful adventure amidst nature's beauty, this trek is a must-do.
