Mardi Himal Trek
- Trek a pristine trail in the Annapurna region of the Nepalese Himalayas
- Enjoy a relatively easy trek with gradual uphill increases
- Explore a diverse landscape ranging from lush rhododendron forests to alpine terrain
The Mardi Himal Base Camp Trek is a recently-opened pristine trail in the Annapurna region of Nepal. The trail was walked only by shepherds and cattle before 2012. Trekkers follow the ridge above the Modi Khola river draining Annapurna Base Camp. The trail at first winds through dense rhododendron and maple forests rich in bird life. The clearings in the forests offer magnificent view of the Annapurna range.
The trail soon climbs above the tree line, offering undisturbed view of snow-covered peaks, including the most spectacular Mt. Fishtial. The changing colors of the peaks at sunset and sunrise appear heavenly. Eventually you will be rewarded with a view of Annapurna I (8,091 meters, 10th highest in the world) and other peaks seen from Annapurna base camp.
On day one, after breakfast, drive 40 to Kande to begin the trek. Day two heads to the forest camp at 2,700 meters. The trek branches off from the main trail towards Annapurna base camp. The forest camp has three teahouses in the middle of the forest. On day three, head to Badal Danda camp, at 3,300 meters. This offers undisturbed views of snow peaks and sweeping valleys. On day four, trek to High Camp at 3,600 meters – on this day the vegetation is mainly grass, allowing unbroken views of the range.Day five is the toughest of all, with an altitude gain of almost 1,000 meters. Mount Fishtial and Mardi Himal appear closer. You will also see Annapurna III and Annapurna I at a distance. On the way back, go further to Badal Danda for the overnight stay. Day six is a trek back to Deurali, and on day seven you will trek down to Dhampus Phedi for the drive back to Pokhara.
