    Route Overview

    Your arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport marks the beginning of the itinerary. One of our staff will wait for you at the airport terminal to welcome you. He’ll then take you to the hotel in Kathmandu. After a short briefing, you’ll have the rest of the evening to yourself.

    Boarding the flight to Pokhara, you’ll begin your Mardi Himal Trekking journey. Upon landing, you’ll drive to Kande and then trek to Pothana for an overnight stay. Further, you’ll walk for four hours and reach Forest Camp. After staying for the night, you’ll make your way to High Camp.

    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. This beautiful journey will take you through the lush green forest and to the High camp of the Mardi Himal. You can opt for this trek if you want to explore Pokhara.

    The second one is the Mardi Himal Trek Via Poon Hill. It is a 12-Day journey that takes you to the High Camp of Mardi Himal via the Poon Hill route. At Poon Hill, you will wake up early to catch the beautiful sunrise and witness the panoramic views of the Annapurna range and other mountains. You can embark on this journey if you have enough days for your adventure.

    No matter which trekking package you opt for, we guarantee an unforgettable vacation experience. Join us to witness the breathtaking beauty of the Himalayas firsthand.

      • Beautiful Mardi Himal Trek

        We did eight days Mardi Himal trek and it was a very pleasant experience. The whole team arranged everything with great professionalism and they were equally precise when something unexpected or out of the plan happened. They took great care for us both during our accommodation in Kathmandu and the trekking period as well.

        Our guide Dinesh was also extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I would absolutely recommend him, he was always there with his stunning hospitality when we needed. He is also a great teacher, taught me some of the basics of Nepalese language too :D.

        I would definitely recommend Nepal Hiking Team if you have any plans to travel to Nepal for trekking purposes.

      • The best guide for the best trek!

        I had a long time to think about the trip as I had booked the Mardi Himal Trek with NHT last year. Because of this, I was on a constant communication with Ganga and Balaram from the office. Always kind and polite, Ganga and Balaram answered all of my confusions and gave knowledgeable information regarding the trek. It was my first positive experience with Nepal Hiking Team. Before the trek, Arun who was my guide gave detailed information about what to expect from the trek and how things were done in the mountains. It was a big reassurance regarding my health and safety and I am eternally grateful to Arun and to everyone at Nepal Hiking Team for this amazing consideration of my well being. The trekking journey was nothing short of amazing and spectacular views of the mountains of Annapurna and Machhapuchhre were constantly in sight throughout the trail. There was a lot of support and help from my guide and porter as well, I couldn’t have possibly have asked for a better group. The trek was absolutely more than I expected and I cannot emphasize more just how much I loved my time there with NHT!

      • The best services that exceed expectations

        Upon arrival, we were welcomed and greeted by our guide Prakash. They made sure that we were properly settled in on our hotels and that everything was comfortable for us. We were also kept up to date with the proceedings as well and then, with Prakash (Guide) and Narayan (our porter) we were off on a vehicle to Pokhara. Everyone within our group was made to feel warm and welcome and no one was ever neglected. Nepal Hiking Team is performing on a level of service most companies only ever dream to reach. They are excellent ambassadors for the company and for their country as well. I was privileged for having them as my companies for the trek.

        Leaving no room for disappointments, we look forward to seeing Nepal Hiking Team again in the near future, and thank for making our trek a special one. The beautiful landscapes, the kindness of the Nepali people and the trails were filled with fantastic views of the Annapurna Mountains. The first couple of days of trekking from trekking to Pothana, the high and low camps and the Upper View point are some of the most beautiful parts of the trek. We really enjoyed the landscape as it was so beautiful out there.

        Nepal Hiking Team arranged everything in the most perfect of ways and we are glad that we were with NHT for the trek.

        Greetings from Australia

      • Amazing trip to Mardi Himala in May

        The Mardi Himal was supposed to be an off-the-beaten-paths trek and because of this, our preference for it was heightened. We were looking for a trek that wasn’t that crowded with other trekkers and the fact that Mardi Himal happened to be an out-the-way trek proved how much of a difference a crowd can make in a journey. We loved the trek very much and have nothing but positive words to say about our experience. The small villages and the views of the mountains I the distance really made the trip into a beautiful vacation for us.

        Moreover, the team that we were provided with, including our guide and our porter were amazingly helpful and always there for us. Our guide’s knowledge and expertise in the field was something that really shone throughout the trek. He was always on the lookout for us and his care with our journey made us feel at ease. The prompt responses and helpful insight about the trek at the very beginning of the trek was also helpful to us in our preparation. When we arrived, we were greeted very cordially by the guide and our services throughout the trek were also satisfactory. The villages and the small houses in the outskirts of the valley with the sights of the mountains and the green landscape is something that is sure to be with us for a long time to come.

        Thank you Nepal Hiking Team for your care and for arranging and catering to our needs throughout the journey! We loved and cherished every moment there with you!

      • Chilled beer with the Annapurna massif and Bhim

        I might be very late in doing this review as I did the Mardi Himal Trek almost 6 months ago but I might as well write a review about my experience. Ganga was the most amazing throughout the trek. Right from the get go, Bhim my guide and everyone at Nepal Hiking Team were absolutely fantastic, always going that extra step further for my convenience and made sure that I had the best possible trip imaginable. Even before arriving at Kathmandu, Ganga and his answering of my queries made everything so much easier. On the trek itself, Bhim was nothing short of amazing and along with one of the best porters ever, my Mardi Himal Trek was an absolute success. Learning about the mountains and the people’s way of life, I remember distinctly that Bhim and I were generally having a good time there. The gorgeous mountains and the sceneries were breath-taking as well. Still, one of the best highlights of the trek has to be trekking all the way to the Upper View Point where the sights of the Himalayas were ravishing! I remember having a chilled beer at one of the teahouses there with Bhim overlooking the mountain scenery right in front of us and I think that was definitely one of those profound moments of my life where it finally sank in that I was at the Himalayas.

        I cannot recommend Nepal Hiking Team more than I already have and I am going to be going with NHT again when I do return to Nepal for another beautiful trekking experience. It certainly was an adventure of a lifetime! Thank you Nepal Hiking team for this amazing time!
