Nestled beneath the towering Machhapuchre peak in the Annapurna Himalayan Range, the trek is a hidden gem that offers breath taking natural view and a challenging terrain for adventure enthusiasts.

Compared to other popular trekking routs in the region, Mardi Himal Trek is less crowded, providing a sense of tranquility and solitude for trekkers to immerse themselves in the serene beauty of the Himalayan landscape. However, its obscurity does not mean it is any less beautiful or challenging, as it still draws the attention of both national and international climbers seeking an off-the-beaten-path experience.

The Mardi Himal Trek is captivating adventure that covers an altitude range of 3000m to 4500m and stretches across a distance of 41km (25 miles).

Best Time for Mardi Himal Trekking 

Trekking in Mardi Himal can be done throughout the year, but the best time to go depends on what region you plan to visit and your personal preferences.

Nepal is a country that is well known for its natural resources and varying weather and climate across its different region. The climate condition of Mardi himl also vary according to the season, with the temperature at the Mardi Base camp differing depending on both the season and altitude.
The best season for trekking in Mardi Himal is spring known as the “king of seasons”. During this season, a variety of flowers including rhododendrons and other plant will bloom, providing a refreshing and remarkable trekking experience. The weather during spring is also very favorable for trekking, with crystal clear and sunny weather providing breath-taking views of the Annapurna Himalayan range.

Autumn is also a great season for trekking for those interested in local culture and tradition. This season is full of different festivals in Nepal, including Dashain and Tihar, which hold great importance and religious beliefs among Nepalese people. This season, which marks the end of summer and the start of winter, has a lower chance of rain and humidity, resulting in clear skies that provide the perfect picture view of mountains and forests. The maximum temperature reaches up to 16°C and falls to 7°C during early morning and late night.

On the Spring season the colorful forests due to the blooming of rhododendrons and other flowers, combined with the melody of birds and the sounds of the river and leaves, provide a peaceful environment for refreshment. The temperature is also quite favorable during this season, with temperatures reaching up to 20°C during the day and falling to 10°C at night. The chance of rain is also very low, making the trek much easier.

Summer is the rainy season in Nepal, with temperatures slightly hotter than other seasons. The weather in the hilly and mountain regions of Nepal is often cloudy during this time. This season is the best for Nepalese farmers as they plant paddy, the major cash crop. The rainy season results in a green environment that is worth watching and is guaranteed to steal your heart.

Winter is the coldest season in Mardi Himal and Nepal. The temperature during the day can fall below 10°C and at night it can drop to -8°C, with the morning and evening times in Mardi Himal Base Camp almost freezing. Despite the cold, we can still see the snow-capped mountains in the Annapurna region. Winter is the time for snowfall in the higher hilly and mountain regions of Nepal, providing an opportunity to play in the snow and have new experiences.

Physical Fitness Requirement for Mardi Himal Trekking

This trek doesn´t require super fitness but however moderate level of fitness is necessary though there is no direct climbing involved. You will need to trek over some rocky section near high camp and base camp. Wilderness Excursion advises our clients going trekking to see a doctor before they go for a check-up and to talk about dealing with altitude sickness. For pure trekking along the Mardi Himal trek in Nepal you´ll need to consider the amount of day you´ll be out trekking to get an idea of how fit you should be. Most days include 4-7 hours of slow hiking. If you plan to do the trek in 4-5 days (which you can)

Acclimatization on Mardi Himal Trekking 

When people move to a new country with a different climate or cultural norms, they may need to acclimate to the new environment to feel comfortable and adapt to their surroundings. Nepal, specifically, is a popular destination for trekking and tours, but the country’s environment can be quite different from other places on Earth. Visitors from lower altitudes may face challenges when embarking on the Mardi Himal trek, which reaches an altitude of 4500m. While the view from above the tree line is breath-taking, altitude sickness is a common condition that can affect those who ascend too quickly without proper acclimatization.

Fortunately, our experienced team is well-equipped to help trekker’s combat altitude sickness. We recommend drinking plenty of fluids, including water, hot soup, and tea, to help prevent altitude sickness. We also take a gradual approach to ascending to higher altitudes, allowing trekkers’ bodies’ ample time to acclimatize. It’s important to rest frequently and avoid overexertion during hikes or climbs to give the body time to adjust. Even physically fit individuals may be susceptible to altitude sickness, which is why we ascend slowly, typically 300 to 1000 meters per day, to ensure proper rest.
At our company, we prioritize providing the best service while taking care of our guests. For those who are unable to defend against altitude sickness, we offer arrangements for medication.

Trekking Difficulties of Mardi Himal Trekking 

Nepal’s geographical structure is unevenly distributed, with altitudes ranging from 60 to 8848 meters above sea level. This makes travel in the country challenging due to varying land structures, weather conditions, and season changes.

The Mardi Himal Trek, which begins at an altitude of 1000 meters and reaches a maximum altitude of 4500 meters, is one of the less challenging treks in Nepal. While the trail is somewhat steep and narrow in places, the altitude range is relatively small in comparison to other well-known treks. However, the weather can be unpredictable, with rain in the summer months, which can make the path slippery.

Despite these challenges, the Mardi Himal Trek is considered an easy to moderate level trek. The youth of the region are highly educated and socially active, and they regularly maintain the trail in good condition. As a result, the path is clean, and with fewer travellers, the trek is more comfortable.
Our team is well-trained and experienced, and they will guide you to your destination with proper advice and ideas, making your trip more comfortable and enjoyable. We take great care to ensure that our clients have a safe and enjoyable trek, and we are always available to answer any questions you may have along the way.

Our trekking package is for 10 days and is best suited for group trekking. Since we need to carry warm clothing and personal belongings, we provide porters. However, each porter is allowed to carry only 20 to 25 kg, so it is important to pack efficiently.
The number of guides and porters we provide will depend on the size of the group, as follows:

Similarly guide and porters services depends on numbers of trekkers.

Mardi Himal Trekking Permit

In Nepal, trekkers have the freedom to trek individually or in groups throughout the country. However, certain areas such as conservation areas, wildlife reserves, and the Himalayas are restricted. In order to trek in these restricted areas, trekkers must obtain permits from the Nepalese government and tourism board. To do so, interested trekkers should contact authorized trekking agencies, who can then apply for permits on their behalf at the tourism board of Nepal. It is important to note that permits cannot be obtained directly by trekkers themselves.

To trek in Mardi Himal, it is mandatory for all trekkers to obtain a TIMS card (Trekkers Information Management System), which can be acquired from the Nepal Tourism Board in Kathmandu. The process of obtaining the TIMS card takes approximately 20-30 minutes, during which the trekkers are required to fill out a form and pay a fee of 20 USD.

Furthermore, entry into the Annapurna Conservation Area is not permitted for trekkers who do not possess an Annapurna Conservation Area Entry Permit. The permit can be obtained from the Nepal Tourism Board in Kathmandu or its office in Pokhara, and costs approximately 3000 NPR . It is important to note that a photograph is also required for the permit application.

To summarize, both the TIMS card and Annapurna Conservation Area Entry Permit are essential for anyone planning to trek in Mardi Himal. The TIMS card can be obtained from the Nepal Tourism Board in Kathmandu, and the permit can be obtained from either the Nepal Tourism Board or its office in Pokhara.
