Mardi Himal Trekking

Mardi Himal trek visits a far quieter area in Annapurna region of Nepal where you will see few other trekkers and meet friendly locals along the way. A number of new basic lodges and homestays have been built along Mardi Himal ridge therefore it is now possible to do this as a lodge based trek rather than having to bring in a camping crew. Mardi Himal trek contains all of the elements of a classic Nepal trekking experience including villages, wildlife, panoramic mountain views and range of landscape from forest to high alpine. The mountain views from Mardi Himal are superb including Annapurna South, Mt Machhapuchhre (also known as Fishtail) and Mt Hiunchuli.

DAY 01: Kathmandu to Pokhara (850 m/ 2788 ft)
We start our day early in the morning to catch a tourist bus at 7 am, we then set off for Pokhara via Nepalese country side that offer green hills, river, farms etc. After a 200 km and around six hours drive we reach Pokhara (a city of Lake, literally); a city that offers us the magnificent view of various mountains namely Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Fishtail and other mountain of Annapurna range. Do some last minute shopping and self exploration around the town (walk around few lake, boating etc). Overnight at Pokhara.

DAY 02: Drive from Pokhara to Kande and trek to Deurali (2,232 m)

After breakfast, drive for about 40 mints to Kande on Pokhara Baglung highway. The trail climbs for about 1 ½ hrs to the ridge at 2,060 m. The clearing in the forest with lodge settlement is known as ‘Australian camp’. The place is scenic with the panoramic view of Annapurna range and Pokhara valley. The trail further winds through the rhododendron forest to the mountain pass called ‘Deurali’. Deurali is overlooking into the Modi Khola valley wedged between Annapurna South and Mardi Himal / Mt Fishtail. Over night at tea-house.

DAY 03: Trek to Low Camp (3,035m/ 4 hrs)

We will have to walk inside the forest for another day but as we reach higher the vegetation changes with more rhododendron trees. This is another pleasant day for us letting us walk in the peaceful route. The trail is steep at the beginning however changes to gradual climbing after awhile. We will have some random views of snowy Himalayan peaks. The views of Machhapuchhre peak is superb from Low Camp. This is very small places with only couple of lodges opened for providing basic meals and accommodation to trekkers. Overnight at tea-house.

DAY 04: Trek to High Camp (3,590m / 4 hrs)
We have another pleasant walking here with stunning views of close Himalayas in front of us. As we climb higher the route also becomes open and spacious as there is no forest anymore. The trail continues through grasslands of high region with occasional rhododendron trees. Spotting the beautiful bird called Himalayan Monal; also known as the impeyan monal, impeyan pheasant and danphe in Nepali is easy around here. This is a colorful Himalayan bird represented as the national bird of Nepal. Finally, we will arrive to High Camp to spend a night here. Overnight at tea-house.

DAY 05: Hike to Upper View Point (4,200m), back to High Camp (4.5 hrs)

We will wake up early in the morning before the sun rises. The plan is to watch sunrise over the Himalayas. We will then return back to lodge where we will be served with our breakfast. We have time to rest before we start hiking up to the upper view point for magnificent views of close Himalayan peaks. The trail heading to Upper View Point is well marked through the grassland involves few steep sections. In overall this is moderate walk, not too easy and not too challenging as well. In summer season this area is full of yaks and sheep along with several yak herder’s huts. There are some narrow and steep trails that extensive care is required. Overnight at tea-house.

DAY 06: Trek to Landruk village (1,560m / 6.5 hrs)

We take a separate route to Landruk village. This is huge village that is on the way to Annapurna Base Camp. We will come to a junction that separates us between the trail heading to Low Camp on the left and Landruk on the right so we take the right one. Descending further will again bring us back inside the forest where the trail is so peaceful and quiet. Turning one and another circles we will then reach Landruk village for overnight stay. Overnight at tea-house.

DAY 07: Trek to Nayapul (1,070m), drive to Pokhara (7 hrs / 1 hrs drive)

We descend down to Modi River before we start walking on the next side. The trail is pretty flat all the way to Nayapul with small and short gradual ups and downs. We will be walking on the right of Modi Khola until we reach Birenthanti, where Modi Khola meets Bhurundi Khola coming from another side. Here we will cross the river once again making the Modi Khola on our right. In about 30 minutes from Birenthanti we will reach Nayapul from where we will catch our transportation that will take us to Pokhara for overnight stay. Overnight at tea-house.
