Mardi Himal Trek

Mardi Himal trek is recently opened for tea house trek which provides incredible panoramic view from the base camp. It is to be remembered that this area has basic tea house, if you prefer luxury service we recommend you for a camping trek. This area is located close to Annapurna Base Camp and to the right hand side of the ridge. This trek is famous for different kinds of wild animals like monkeys and musk deer, birds where we can find Lopophorous (Danfe) as well as watching the incredible view of Annapurna & Machhapuchhre mountain ranges.

The trek begins at Phedi following half an hour driving from Pokhara. The trail is great, first gradually up, then a bit steeper to Australian Camp (2060m – About one hour), then after that somewhat downhill to Pothana (1950m) then up again to Deurali (2100m). There is a privilege turn in Deurali sign posted "Forest Camp" the trail is through wilderness, from the start up then undulating on the highest point of an edge, there is a segment just over half way where the trail drops steeply and after that gradually picks up stature and afterward back onto the edge and into Forest Camp (2600m). The trail is at first truly steep leaving Forest Camp however, soon gets less steep as you again get up on the edge. The trail leaves Low Camp again in the wilderness, however the trees soon begin to get smaller and after around one hour trekking broke out of the wilderness and onto the open edge with dynamite perspectives of Machhapuchhre ahead and Annapurna South to my left. It is conceivable to keep trekking along the edge for an alternate 4 to 5 hours to Mardi Himal Base Camp (4500m) and come back to High Camp in around 4 hours. After that, we get back down to Deurali. When we land to Deurali, we trek to Jhinu Hot spring where you can discover at regular hot spring through Tolka.
