Review of Trail: Why do Love this trip?

Some years ago, local people in the Madi area realized that they should make a trekking route to reach the base of Mardi Himal. So they started to make a route. Finally, they made a route and teahouses for the trek. Since this trekking route offers the best views of Fishtail and other Annapurna peaks, it became a popular trekking destination for tourists short period.

It is an outstanding hiking trail. We can review this trail according to trekking days, mountain views, trail structure, food and accommodation on route, traffic of tourists, and access from Kathmandu/Pokhara. The views from the Mardi Himal Base Camp Hike are outstanding.

This trekking is for those who are looking for the best short Himalayan trek in Nepal. It is short timebound trekking as it can be done from 3 days to 7 days according to the time frame of visitors.

What to see(mountains) while trekking to the Mardi Himal Base Camp?

At the very beginning of the trek, you will see Manaslu, Lamjung Himal, Boudha Himal, and the whole Annapurna range from Dhampus.

On the way, we can see Mount Dhaulgari from Pitam Deurali. Likewise from Low Camp to High Camp, you will see amazing views of Machhapuchhre Himal, Annapurna South, Mardi Himal, and Hiunchuli Peak.

Regardless, from ViewPoint to Mardi Himal Base Camp, you will see dramatic views of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Annapurna Fang, Annapurna III, Mardi Himal, and Machhapuchhre.

What are the Highlights? Why do you love this trip?

Most of the trail on Mardi Himal Hiking lies inside the Forest. We can do either Teahouse or camping. There are simple guesthouses and Homestays along the entire route. This trek provides a cultural experience, delightful forests along with rocky mountain terrain, panoramic views of the mountains, an astonishing landscape, and a stunning waterfall.

On Mardi Trek, you will be very close to Mt. Machhapuchhre and Annapurna Ranges too. Apart from that, you can taste local cultural experiences, Lush forests, hilly terrain, and panoramic views of mountains.

Till some years ago, trekking to Mardi Himal Base Camp was underrated trekking but now it’s completely changed. It is popular same likely as Poon Hill Trekking. Because during the main trekking season on this trial, more than 200 people check-in each day. And this trend is uplifting year by year. So we categorized the Mardi Himal as a trending trekking trail in Nepal.

Sounds surprising but it’s real that the short Mardi Trek is going to be the most popular route of the Annapurna region without government promotional activities. Many say that it is a hidden Gem in Annapurna Region, Nepal.

There are lots of things that make sense to do trekking to Mardi Himal. Here I’d pointed out some highlights.

  • To see Marvelous Annapurna Himalayas.
  • Get an amazing view of Landscapes, waterfalls, and Forests.
  • The excellent viewpoint for Mt. Fishtail.
  • Sunrise and Sunset viewpoints, diversity
  • Experienced Local Cultures, Nepali food, and lifestyle of Mardi Areas.

Here I’ve listed this trail’s reasons to choose and avoid.

Reason to Choose

  1. Short trek
  2. Has many route options
  3. Offers the best mountains views including a very close view of Fishtail
  4. Easy Trekking
  5. Opportunity to experience above the cloud.
  6. Easily accessible
  7. Low budget trek
  8. Has WIFI and Network access throughout the trail.

Reason to avoid

  1. Very crowded especially in peak seasons(due to domestic tourists).
  2. Most of the places on this trail have basic teahouses. For those who want to do comfort lodge trekking, it can’t be their choice.

Best Season(Month to Visit)

Though trekking to Mardi Himal is double throughout the year, some seasons are indeed the best time to visit there. Autumn and Spring are the best time of the year to visit Mardi Himal Base Camp due to stable and clear weather.

Mardi trip in September

In September, it is not perfect to visit this trail due to rain. However, if no rain on a day, you can see the best view of Annapurna and the fishtail. Moreover, it is not a busy season. Hence you will get more hospitality from the teahouse.

In December

December is also considered the best time to trek due to favorable weather for viewing the sights. It will be cold in the morning and evening outside of teahouses but during the day, the temperature might be suitable to hike the base camp of Mardi. Traffic will get less than the peak(October to November). Hence December is also the best time for Mardi Himal Base Camp Hiking.

What types of accommodations are available during the Trip?

As this trek lies near Pokhara, at the beginning or even end of the trek you will probably stay in Pokhara and you can expect a decent Hotel according to your budget. But along the Mardi trek, you are likely to stay in teahouses. You will find a basic teahouse whilst trekking to Mardi but views from the teahouse make accommodation worthwhile.

Permit

For the domestic tourists(Nepali citizens), it doesn’t need. But for international tourists including Indian people, trekking permits are required to visit Mardi Himal.

As this trial lies in Annapurna Region, you should have Annapurna Conservation Area Project Permit and TIMS(Tourist Information Management System ) Permit. The cost of a permit to the foreigners through a trekking agency, it cost USD 30 for the ACAP permit and USD 10 for  the TIMS permit

Packing List for Mardi Himal Base Camp Trek

Although trekking to Mardi Himal is considered an easy trek, you should have a proper packing list. Because it requires to have strong trekking equipment to reach Mardi Himal Base Camp.

Keep in mind, that even if you forget some trekking gear, you can buy it in Pokhara. Because this trek starts nearby Pokhara. Here is the list.

Short Trek but Amzing !

Rated 5 out of 5

Short trek route but got to see amazing jaw-dropping picturesque views. February ridiculously awesome month to trek. Snow adding pain as well as a boon for the eyes. Definitely recommended. Jay Nepal!
