Moving alongsmall winding paths blanketed with rhododendron forest, only a hand full of tourists make their way towards the Mardi Himal Trek making it even more cryptic, undisturbed and hypnotic. After an elevation of 3300 m, the landscape drastically changes to a dry and jagged Himalayan setting with the mesmerizing views of the dominant Mardi Himal, Machapuchre, Annapurna South and Hiunchuli. Climbing the Mardi Himal Base Camp from the High Camp gives an exceptional view of the legendary Annapurna Range. The warm and friendly people offering homestays and guesthouses add to the reputation of the Mardi Himal Trek.

INFORMATION ABOUT TRIP

INFORMATION ABOUT TRIP 

Accommodations

In Kathmandu, we will have a 3-star hotel room which will be shared in a twin-share basis and will have a supplement of breakfast alongside. The rooms will have attached bathrooms and will have all the facilities that will at least help you have a semi-urban experience judging from where you come. But, during the trek, we will have to forfeit the luxury of a 3-star hotel in the pursuit of what nature has in store for us and travel through the wildlands in local teahouses, which will be very comforting as well but just not luxurious enough in terms of the facilities provided.

Meals

We can have a myriad a local and international cuisines to choose from during the trek though the list of meals will not be as elaborate as you might think, but still we do have options and they surely do taste awesome. We are very careful for providing you with food that is both hygienic and heavy for sustaining your energy throughout the trek. All kinds of meal fall under the package costs during the trek except for when you stay in Kathmandu where we will only be able to offer the breakfast. And, we will also end our lovely soulful trekking experience with a lovely farewell dinner at the end of our trek in Kathmandu.

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements

Though it might seem very daunting in the face of it, but we are pretty sure an average human being with average walking capability will be able to complete the trek with no trouble. Our guides are very supportive in terms of your walking abilities during the trek and if needed, s/he will change the entire trek stuructre for you as well. (But, that will come alongside its own repercussions, like longer trekking days). Walking in higher altitude will surely be more tiresome than in lower altitude but the transition between the two will be as smooth as possible. We do recommend to consult with your personal doctor before making the trip though just to make sure.   consult your doctor(s) before the trip.

Trip Start Dates and Cost

We have a perfectly customisable trip flexibilty depending upon your preferred dates and times. We are extremely you-specific in providing our services because we think that is what ultimately matters at the end of the day, how much you enjoy the trip.

Additional Information    

We will be more than happy to discuss whatever aspects you find confusing in mail or directly in phone if you prefer.
