Trip Overview

Mountain Magic Treks designed Mardi Himal Short Trek 5 days from Kathmandu which starts with 20 20-minute flight to Pokhara. From a nice and beautiful city Pokhara 1:30 hours drive to Kande, the Kande village is a real trekking starting point due to our Itinerary for Mardi Himal Short Trekking for 5 days.

The trekking is situated in the Annapurna region of Nepal Himalaya. Mardi Himal Trek provides you with picturesque scenery with the overwhelming experience of the mountainous terrain, environment-friendly soaked view of green hills, and snowcapped mountains, and walks into the pristine forest and nature of lovely rhododendron, Pine and oak.

On the trail, we trek through the high ridge with a constant view of Annapurna Himalayan ranges and Dhaulagiri in the western part of Nepal, Mt.Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) in the east, and Manaslu Himalayan range in the east part of Nepal Himalaya. Mardi Himal is located on the bottom of Mt. Machhapuchhre which is one of the forbidden mountains and unclimbed peaks.

The Mardi Himal Short Trek moves towards the western part of Nepal in the Annapurna region with our final destination through the narrow trekking trail offering the vision of different Himalayan peaks, green forests, nice Gurung villages, beautiful lakes, white waterfalls, and wild animals like Monkeys, Musk deer, mountain goat and many more.

Mardi Himal Short Trekking distance is 5 to 7 hours a day with enough time to enjoy the views and take a lot of pictures and videos. The first day is a little longer with the flight to Pokhara and drives to Kande then trekking starts to go to Deurali. Then the next day we move towards Low Camp, trek to High Camp, and then finally trek to Mardi Himal Base Camp.

After the beautiful experience in base camp, we trek back down to Siding through the other valley. From Siding Village Mountain Magic Treks provides the private vehicle for your ridgeback to Pokhara.

Important Tips for Mardi Himal Short Trek

You must know a few things before you plan for the Mardi Himal Trek, find some important tips below:

You should drink a lot of water. Your buddy will be sweating more while trekking. Your body will adore more water content and our advice is a minimum of 3 liters of water a day need to drink. Furthermore, you may feel dehydrated.

Along these lines, to keep up body hydration, drink water sufficiently at the list as we mentioned. You can bring it with you or buy it in Kathmandu before you start your trek and carry a water purifier. Drinking the steam water straightforwardly isn't clean and it might affect you in the mountain so you should use the purifiers in your filled-up water bottle. To be on the safe side carry insect repellents and table salts if you trekking in summer or the monsoon season.

They are fundamentally easy to manage mosquitoes and parasites, fundamentally. The trekking with an experienced guide is an extraordinary option. They will help you with everything all through the trek. Hiring a guide helps your safety and security.

They will assist you in arranging for sustenance and lodging with informed history, and Mardi Himal Trek information day by day. Please carry enough Nepali rupees. The Mardi Himal Trekking is a newly opened (recently) trekking trail. In this trekking route, you may not find an ATM. Best way to consult with your trip operator or tour guide before you depart for trekking.

The most important note from Mountain Magic Treks for the Mardi Himal Short Trek Itinerary

Mountain Magic Treks Pvt. Ltd is the priority for customer safety. So, register with your embassy in Kathmandu, particularly on the off chance that you intend to go trekking. Try to within the group or trek with a guide, do not trek without a guide and alone.

Guided trekking is the most preferable option while you traveling in Nepal. While you trekking in the mountainous region we cannot predict the weather conditions to avoid consequences occurring due to bad weather but in the high altitude weather will be great every morning even for a short period, we prescribe guided trek.

Changes in the weather at times, unexpected illnesses of a group member like AMS (Acquit Mountain Sickness), and unanticipated natural disasters might bring changes in the designed itinerary programs. In these cases, the guide (who is provided by the company) will help you to overcome the problem anytime. Be prepared to be flexible if necessary and share even if you have a small problem with your guide. Don’t rush or run, do as the guide says every day. 

Don’t travel without travel insurance, you must use a trekking pulse, you must drink water a minimum of 3 litters a day, do you need exercise before you plan to trek like a cycling tour or hike uphill, or normally you should run every morning to be fit. Do you need proper trekking equipment (accept down jackets and sleeping bag Mountain Magic Treks provide)

What is the food like in Mardi Himal Trek?

Dal, Bhat, and Tarakari (Dal: Lentil soup, Bhat: rice, Tarkari: Curry) are typical delicious Nepalese food. Dal, Bhat, Tarkari, and some international cuisines like Tibetan, Chinese, and Indian, but we recommend that be vegetarian because you do not get fresh food in the mountains, just in the city or at low altitude at the beginning of trekking you can eat meat or other items. In beverages, you can get tea, coffee, flavored drinks, and beer, vodka, but alcohol also we don’t recommend it while trekking up to your final destination on the way back you can drink and relax.

How high is the Mardi Himal Base Camp and how high we will reach on this trip?

The Mardi Himal is at a high altitude of 5,585m. Do we trek to Mardi Himal Base Camp which is 4,505meters? We will be hiking up to Base Camp during the day and back to High Camp which is 3,900m from the sea level. This is good enough to get oxygen and risk-free of high altitude.

Is there any age limit for Mardi Himal Trek?

No, for this trekking anyone can join and can complete it easily. Normally you have to be physically fit and if not do you need exercise before your trek. You can do exercise like cycling tours, running every morning even for 30 minutes, or you can hike uphill if possible.

What are the main attractions of the Mardi Himal Short Trek Itinerary?

Mardi Himal trekking is one of the best and shortest trekking destinations with the best views of the Annapurna Himalayas. When you hike up from Deurali every day you can see the mountainous views very close and beautiful. There is no risk of altitude sickness because of the plants and not too high. The most important views are the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchre, and Manaslu Himalayan ranges of this trekking.

Is drinking water available and safe to drink during the Mardi Himal Short Trekking?

Nepal is a small country but this is the second richest country in water resources. You can see and feel how rich is Nepal on streams, ponds, and taps all over the place throughout the Mardi Himal trekking. But drinking water directly comes from the mountain which is natural but not safe to drink.

It would be better for you to be on the safe side to carry water purifier tablets so you can easily drink and enjoy drinking water directly from natural sources or you can drink a mineral water bottle which is easily available during the trek. The cost is getting higher day by day because they have to bring all the things from the city or big markets. Purification tablets Mountain Magic Treks will provide you with as much as you want for trekking.

If this is my first time trekking, what do I need to focus on to complete this trip easily?

Mardi Himal Short Trek is an easy to moderate trek, we advise that you need exercise even for a week (Cycling tour hiking through the rocky trails, or running every morning even short duration) if you do this kind of exercise it won’t be difficult for those who are trekking for the first time. We have to cross a nasty trail because of the animals like horses and donkeys for this trek. 

How will I contact my family during the trek?

There is access to landline phones with ISD services or do we get the NTC (Nepal Telecom Connection) network there so you can directly contact us or you can use data for the internet from your phone. In some lodges, there is a Wi-Fi service available it may cost some amount but do you get services while trekking.

Is there any luxury option for Mardi Himal Trek?

 Only in the city do we get luxurious hotels and other things but in the trekking has basic teahouses. In the high season do we need to share the room with others it means we get separate beds in the same rooms If you are not able to walk and have a short time to explore Mardi Himal then we can also operate helicopter tours to Mardi Himal. You can choose either group joining a tour or a private helicopter tour. We can do as per your demand and comfort level.

What should I do if I become sick in the middle of the trekking?

The Mountain Magic Treks team is like our family don’t panic, and don’t hesitate to inform the guide about your problem what you have. Our trekking guide will take action according to the level of your sickness anytime. If there are minor problems then the guide will look after you and take you to the nearest hospital.

We have fixed departure dates for the years of visit 2020, 2021, and 2022. Do we cover all the seasons for trekking except the moon soon season? The moon soon season is June, July, and August in Nepal.  The peak trekking seasons (March-May and September-November. If you are unable to join on our fixed departure dates do we depart the trek on your willingness date even for solo trekkers?

Short Mardi Himal Trekking takes the same time as for Poon Hill trekking. Our recommendation is for Mardi Himal trek than Poon Hill. The benefit is you reach 4500m high, you can catch the views of all the mountains of the Annapurna Himalayas, you reach Mardi Himal Base camp, and you reach very near Mt. Machhapuchre. If 5 5-day trek is too short for you then you can choose another 9 days of Mardi Himal Trekking which is also nice and easy you complete.

Do Mountain Magic Treks provide just a trekking guide or a porter for carrying our luggage?

Yes, we do. We would say better to hire both a guide and a porter. The porter will be carrying your luggage, it helps you in the high altitude you cannot breathe easily even carrying anything.  Just the handbag, makes it easy to trek with other things in the handbag (light clothes, water, important documents like Passport, money wallet, energy bars, etc.)

If you are fit enough to carry the luggage yourself and if you do not want to have a porter that will be great but you must have a guide for your trekking. The guide knows everything about the mountain hotels, the names of the mountain peaks, and he will give you all the information about this trekking like flora and fauna, the history of this trip, flowers and wild animals many more, so you need to know something about this trek and for the safety do you need to hire a guide.

The Mountain Magic Treks team has smiling faces, friendly staff, and more than 10 years of experience in Mardi Himal trekking.

The trip operator wants to meet you upon your arrival and before departure as well to collect your comments on our services and your experience. This is a long-term business so that do we need some advice from you too, to provide more services but through other ways of servicing or whatever is the best for the future.
