    Route Overview

    Your arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) marks the beginning of the itinerary. One of our staff from NHT will greet you at the arrival gate. He’ll then take you to the hotel in Kathmandu. After a short briefing, you’ll have the rest of the evening to yourself.

    After boarding the flight to Pokhara the next day, you’ll begin your Mardi Himal Trekking journey. Upon landing, you’ll drive to Kande and then trek via Australian Camp to Pothana for an overnight stay.

    From Pothana, we ascend to Forest Camp/Kokar through the Pitam Deurali, the midpoint of two famous trekking, Mardi Himal Trek and Annapurna Base Camp. After staying for the night, you’ll go to High Camp, passing Low Camp.

    Next comes the trek to View Point, the final destination of the Mardi Himal trek, and you’ll descend to Badal Danda. The final day of the trek brings a deep sense of achievement as you descend to Siding Village and push back to Pokhara.

    When Are The Best Times For The Trek?

    If you are wondering about the best time to book the trek, then you should consider scheduling your trip in either spring (March-May) or autumn (September-November).

    These seasons offer ideal weather conditions and a perfect environment for trekking. The stunning landscapes and snow-capped mountains are at their best during these months. The trail is also filled with wildflowers, including the bloom of rhododendrons.

    You can still enjoy the trek in winter (December-February) and summer (June-August). However, it's important to note that the possibility of snow and slippery trails can make the hike more challenging. So, it's better to plan your trek during spring or autumn for the best experience.

    Is The Trek Right For You?

    Determining whether the Mardi Himal Trek is right for you depends on a few factors, such as your physical fitness level and personal preferences.

    The Mardi Himal Trek is an easy-to-moderate trek with a maximum altitude of 4,500 meters. It's suitable for trekkers of all ages with a reasonable fitness level. The trek is well-marked, and the trails are well-maintained, making it easier for novice trekkers to navigate. However, it's recommended to do some physical exercise and cardio workouts a month before the trek.

    It is an 8-Day trek that involves long hours of walking through steep ascent and descent. The journey will give you a taste of the Annapurna region and leave you wanting more. Lastly, you do not need a trekking experience for this journey.

    What Are The Alternative Adventures?

    Following are the alternative adventures you can look at before choosing the perfect package for your holiday.

    The first one is the Mardi Himal Trek package. It is a 9-day journey that follows the same itinerary as the Mardi Himal Trekking but adds a stay at Pokhara.
