Fewer tourists, but big on beauty!
Snowcapped peaks abound as you enjoy this off-the-beaten-path trek that is full of adventure with fewer people. This trek has a lot to offer and is culturally rich and abundant in beauty. Experience the beauty and remoteness as you follow the trail to Machapuchare Base Camp. The trail takes you through lush valleys, alpine meadows where yaks graze, through rhododendron, pine, and subtropical forests, crossing many rivers with waterfalls cascading from above, and most spectacular of all the gigantic peaks that surround you.
The Mardi Himal Trek begins at the city of Pokhara with Phewa Tal (Lake) at its center. The trail initially takes us through a rhododendron forest and along the bank of rivers. The trail descends to Mardi Khola (river) and then ascends toward Phedi. The Mardi Himal trek offers fantastic views of Mt. Dhaulagiri, Annapurna Ranges, Mt. Hiunchuli, and Mt. Machapuchare (Fish Tail).
The trail to Mardi Himal is suitable for most people of average fitness. Climbing from the valley floor may have you breathing hard, but the surrounding beauty will make up for it and be a welcome distraction. Enjoy the solitude on this unusual trek to more remote areas.
The following information will give you some idea about what you need to bring for the trek. It is important you do not forget the essential items, as this will determine your comfort and safety on the trek. Equally important is that you do not burden yourself with unnecessary equipment on the trek.
(Note our company guide will carry the medicines and first aid kits during the trek. However, we recommend you bring your personal first-aid kit as well)
You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find comfort and better quality teahouses - having attached bathroom at lower levels- until you reach higher elevations, where the accommodation is more basic with bare necessities.
In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of the Manang & Mustang regions is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew, and Tibetan bread. Sherpa’s’ started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.
We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We use public transportation or local buses during the trek.
This can be a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day. You don’t need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus! We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake.
