Mardi Himal Trek with the Best Price & FIx Departure For 2023/2024

Mardi Himal Trekking-7 Day is short and the best moderate trekking in Nepal. The trail of Mardi Himal is located in the Annapurna region, neighboring the Annapurna Base Camp Route. Trekkers find the trek magnificent as it has diverse attractions of the enchanting trail through the woods, has the most minor human settlements, and takes you to the bosom of the jaw-dropping destination of Upper Viewpoint (4200 meters). Being a moderate trail, it is also suitable for novice trekkers in the mountains along with family groups. The trek is excellent who prefer to witness the pyramid-shaped peaks from a closer distance in a short period.

Mardi Himal Trip starts from Phedi, after about half an hour's drive from Pokhara. The vantage point of the trekking - Upper Viewpoint offers a striking view of Mount Fishtail, Mardi Himal Peak, and some of the lower peaks of the Annapurna Himalayan chain. Trekkers with mild physical fitness can enjoy the trek throughout the year except for the monsoon. March to May and September to November are the most suitable seasons for Mardi Himal Trekking. The basic mountain lodge accommodation facilitates the trail, making the trek more comfortable.

7-Days Mardi Himal Trekking is a world-class adventure tour in the Annapurna region of Nepal. It is a moderately adventurous trip for those looking to head off the beaten track through the forested region. The tea house trek escorts you through the magnificent landscape, the impressive trail through the hill ridge, and the Himalayas with the astounding Himalayan sceneries of the Annapurna Massif. In a short duration, you will be leaving the bustling noise and be in the bosom of sole nature.

Driving from Kathmandu to Pokhara, you extend the drive to Phedi, one of the gateways of the Mardi Himal Treks. The form of the trail is mixed in the initial level, which includes some steep uphill route that goes through the rice fields and the woods. As you walk further, the enticing landscape surrounds you with the alpine meadows and a magnificent trail through the edge of the hillside. For this reason, trekkers often describe it as the best optional trek to Annapurna Base Camp, another moderate foothill excursion in the Annapurna region.

The Low Camp, Badal Danda, and High Camp are delightful mountain stops with basic lodge and tea house facilities on the Mardi Himal Trekking trail. Badal Danda offers breathtaking views of Mt. Annapurna, Machapuchare, Himchuli, and Mardi Himal. A day hike from the High Camp to Upper View Point is just magnificent to explore the miraculous alpine setting at the bosom of the Himalayan boulders. Not only do the Himalayan peaks look stunning, but they are inspiring and offer good vibes.

Instead of retracing through the same trail of the Mardi Himal Journey, the carefully customized itinerary of Adventure Club Trek leads you through Sidhing, the biggest village on this trail, settled with mixed social groups, including ethnic people. The trip, after all, allows a fantastic time to capture the Himalayan views, alpine meadows, mountain lodges, and local lifestyles.

When is the Best Season for the Mardi Himal Trekking?

Spring and autumn are the best trekking seasons in Nepal, which is also the same in the case of the Mardi Himal Trekking. Spring (March-May) is a warm season, allowing amazing views and the diversity of wildflowers throughout the route. Autumn (September-November) is a bit cold than spring, but it offers the best views and warm walking weather. Crystal-clear weather can be expected in autumn. Similarly, winter (December-February) is also a favorable season for the Mardi Himal Trekking, but you should hold the chill weather. Besides the heaps of snow, winter allows a mind-blowing time to trek without any crowd, and get dramatic views of the snow-capped Himalayas and the entire landscape.

How Difficult Is Mardi Himal Trek 

The Mardi Trek in Nepal is a moderately difficult trekking route. Be cautious when walking along the trail because of the narrow valleys. It can be challenging for some to begin the trek, as it is all uphill until Upper View Point. The Mardi Trek, however, is relatively easy compared to other high-altitude destinations such as Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Circuit Trek. This trail is relatively easy for physically fit individuals with prior experience trekking. During the winter, however, this trail can be treacherous. It is essential that trekkers carefully follow the instructions given by a local guide or expert. Numerous crevasses make it challenging to navigate the trail.

Accommodations on Mardi Himal Trek 

You will be accommodated in a three-star standard hotel in Kathmandu, Pokhara, and the best available teahouses during the trek. All accommodations are on a twin-shared basis. A single supplement will be served on request and will cost an additional. Since you will be trekking in remote regions, the services in the teahouses/guesthouse will be essential. We will try our best to arrange rooms with attached washrooms; however, some teahouses still need attached bathrooms.

Meals On Mardi Himal Trek 

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided during the trek, and breakfast will only be provided in Kathmandu and Pokhara. We host welcome and farewell dinners for our guests. During the trek, we have breakfast and dinner at tea houses or lodges where we spend nights while there will be lunch at tea houses on the way. You have the option to choose from Nepali, continental, Tibetan, and Indian cuisines. As we take care of our guests, we ensure that you are getting healthy food. We prioritize locally produced organic food and also provide you with seasonable fruits. During the climbing session, hygienic, freshly-cooked food will be provided.

Note: If you are a vegetarian, let us know in advance so that we can make proper arrangements for food as per your wish during 

Electricity, WIFI, And Battery Recharge 

During the Mardi Himal trek, electricity is available at all the teahouses where you will spend the night. You can recharge your phones, laptop, or iPads from micro-hydropower and solar panels by paying a nominal charge. Regarding Wi-Fi, there are no free hotspots along the trekking trail, so we do not encourage carrying your laptop. Some teahouses offer paid Wi-Fi services hourly but expect high-speed connectivity on something other than the remote trails.

Useful Info


Adventure Club Trek. We will make every effort possible to follow the original itinerary. However, we reserve the right to change that itinerary if a segment of it becomes a safety issue. Certain mountain regions are remote, natural disasters can happen, weather conditions can decline, and illness or injury can occur. To avoid dangerous situations, we may occasionally change the itinerary to ensure everyone’s safety. That being said, Adventure Club Trek will strive to provide you with the best possible trekking experience and keep your safety our priority. We thank you for your understanding.

Acclimatization and High-Altitude Sickness 

The acclimatization planned during the trip helps trekkers adapt to the environment with less oxygen. Our body needs time to adjust to the higher altitudes. Rushing to the higher elevation without acclimatization may result in acute mountain sickness (AMS), which could be fatal. The trekkers may suffer from AMS above 2,400m/7,875ft as the amount of oxygen becomes less and less with the increase in elevation.

We can categorize AMS into three categories with its symptoms. The trekker suffering from regular AMS feels giddy, gets headaches, Nausea, and is out of breath, and is suggested not to worry as it disappears after the body gets used to less oxygen. Likewise, trekkers suffering from mild AMS show symptoms of dizziness, muscular pain, insomnia, headache, vomiting, loss of appetite, rapid heartbeat, and shortness of breath. Mild AMS can be treated with anti-headache medicines.

A person suffering from severe AMS shows heightened symptoms, including shortness of breath, even while resting. The trekker with serious symptoms can barely walk, and fluids may start building up in the lungs. The trekker with severe AMS must be taken to a lower altitude immediately.

Advanced cases of AMS

If AMS is not treated in time, it can be life-threatening and lead to edema, a condition in which fluid is accumulated in the body's tissues. Following are the two serious altitude sicknesses caused at high altitudes.

High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE)

In HACE, the brain gets swollen, leading to coma and even death. Its symptoms are paralysis on one side of the body, bladder dysfunction, fatigue, bowel dysfunction, loss of coordination, and confusion. Descend to a lower altitude as soon as possible to prevent the worsening of the condition.

High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE)

Fluid is accumulated in the lungs, which also increases the capillary pressure. Its symptoms include severe shortness of breath at rest, dry cough that later produces pink frothy sputum, and fatigue. Important Note: Severe cases of AMS are rare. All our Adventure Club Trek guides are aware of the symptoms of AMS and can handle it with care. We prioritize acclimatization, talk about the use of Diamox beforehand, and counsel all our trekkers on the risk and preventive factors before and during the trip. Your safety is our main concern.

First-Aid Kit

Our guides and porters are equipped with a basic first-aid kit during regular treks. For expeditions that take on isolated and off-the-beaten trekking paths, a comprehensive first-aid kit is compulsory; the same goes for climbing expeditions as well.

  • A bandage in case of sprains.
  • Plasters/ Band-aids and antiseptic ointments for simple cuts
  • Iodine or water filter (optional) instead of buying bottled mineral water
  • Moleskin/Second skin in case of blisters.
  • Aspirin/Paracetamol -painkiller.
  • Oral rehydration salts-Nava Jeevan or Jeevan Jal (orange-flavored ORS)
  • The broad-spectrum antibiotic (norfloxacin or ciprofloxacin).
  • Anti-diarrhea medication (antibiotic).
  • Diarrheal stopper (Imodium - optional).
  • Diamox 250/500mg (for altitude sickness).
  • Gel hand cleaner/sanitizer.

Note: We can add medical supplies per the trekkers' particular needs to the first-aid kit given above.

Equipment And Packing List

We recommend that you bring the items to the list below. Suppose your trek is longer or shorter than that. In that case, appropriate adjustments can be made to reflect the specific requirements, season, and length of the trip.

Since our porters will carry your pack, please remember the weight limitation is 22kg (44 lbs since there is nothing there but some prayer flags. Also, please note that you still need to send me a list of gear.

Experience Required 

Mardi Himal Trek is suitable for all adventurers who can walk for at least 5-6 hours a day. At some points, you may have to walk for 6-7 hours. The trek is moderate, but it is to take note that walking in higher altitudes can be more physically demanding than in the lowland. If you wish to make the Mardi Himal Trek, you do not have to be an expert in mountaineering. It only requires good mental health and physique. With the leadership of our experienced guide qualified in first aid, you will be able to complete the trek efficiently.

Visa And Entry Procedure 

Everyone needs a visa to enter Nepal except Indian nationals. Citizens of the SAARC nations like Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Bhutan do not require a visa for 30 days. Fortunately, getting a Nepal visa is an easy process. Tourist visas are issued on arrival at the international airport and official overland entry points. However, travelers from Afghanistan, Iraq, Cameroon, Ghana, Somalia, Swaziland, Senegal, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Ethiopia, and Liberia are not issued visas on arrival. After you arrive at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, you will find electronic kiosks to assist with your visa processing. After taking the completed form and paying the visa fee, you need to stay in the long immigration queue for your visa on arrival.

Visitors can now apply for an online visa within 15 days of their arrival date in Nepal. For this, you will need your Nepal hotel address and a digital passport-sized photo that needs to be uploaded to the online application. After submitting the form online, you need to print out the confirmation page, which has to be furnished at the immigration section in Kathmandu airport, along with your passport and the required visa fee.

Tourists can also apply for a Nepali visa at the local Nepali Embassy or Consulate in their respective countries. Or, they can even mail their visa application to the visa office near their location, but well ahead of time to allow sufficient processing time. Nepal visa information for all categories of travelers and their correspondence costs can be convenient, so for more information and contact details of the Nepali Embassies and Consulate around the world, 

Whichever way you enter Nepal, you will be given a 15/30/90-day visa as required. The general Nepal tourist visa fee on arrival for multiple entries is:

15 days – US$30, 30 days – US$50, and 90days – US$125

Tourist visas can be extended for a maximum of 150 days in a year, and these extensions are granted only at the Department of Immigration offices in Pokhara and Kathmandu. For more information on Nepal visas, visit our visa information page.

Our Trekking Guides/Leaders 

Here at Adventure Club, our staff is like family. We only use locals to support their communities, and we train our staff rigorously to be the best they can be – for you! 

  •  Full first-aid training
  • Guide Training (trekking)
  • English and other common languages (as requested) 
  • Village and Land Conservation 
  • Mountaineering (for specialty expeditions or climbing treks)

All our guides are carefully trained for leadership, as good leadership is vital for your trek to be enjoyable, safe, and successful. Most of our guides grew up in Sherpa country or other mountainous parts of Nepal. Their pride in their region shows itself in the way they lead treks and interface with you. 

Porters Care

On any team, courtesy and respect are fundamental for an enjoyable and worthwhile experience. Our porters are an essential, integral part of each trekking team, and as such, they are well-treated and well-paid. After your trek, you will find that they have fully earned your gratitude and respect. We expect all trekkers to keep their baggage weight under 15kgs/33lbs. Adventure Club Trek maintains a full commitment to the rights of our porters, providing them with appropriate clothing, gear, and lodging. In case of severe accident or sickness, they receive the same care as anyone else employed on the trekking team, even including evacuation by helicopter at our expense if appropriate. We fully support the IPPG (International Porter Protection Group), which strives to maintain and improve our porter's working conditions.

Travel Insurance 

To be adequately protected in terms of insurance, you will need specialist travel insurance for participation in hazardous activities. A travel insurance policy that covers helicopter evacuation, trip cancellation, injury, death, lost baggage, theft, liability, medical treatment, and expenses is strongly recommended. Ensure the insurance covers all the activities you will be undertaking during your stay in Nepal, such as trekking and climbing. Suppose you are injured and unable to travel. In that case, you can only ask for a rescue helicopter from a remote area if you have definite proof that you can pay for it. Adventure Club Trek has an agreement in Kathmandu that guarantees payment for helicopter evacuations. They pay a cash deposit to the helicopter operator and collect the money from you once you have been rescued. Be sure your policy specifically covers mountaineering or alpinism, or you may need help to settle a claim.


On the Mardi Himal Trek in Nepal, the internet service will be available at lodges with some extra service charge. You can contact your family and friends from the guesthouses. However, as we reach higher altitudes, communication will be through the phone for safety purposes. We communicate with all our valuable clients through the team leader at least once daily to ensure you are fine and enjoying the trip. The Adventure Club Trek office in Kathmandu will constantly contact you for the help you may need during the trek. Depending on the network you use, there could be a poor signal to the network before the high altitude. Upon your request, we can provide you with a separate local sim card to better the network. Many places have WIFI service available at an extra cost.

Group Size And Team Composition 

We always form a small group of like-minded people to give them a wonderful and perceptive travel experience. It provides opportunities to interact and share in a fun-filled environment in the wilderness. Generally, our travel group comprises a maximum of 16 members. We need at least two participants to run our fixed departure dates. For private trips, the number of group members does not apply. We always strive to form a team, ensuring that the members are comfortable with one another.


Tipping is optional in Nepal, as most services include a service charge. However, if you want to express your gratitude, you are free to tip drivers and hotel staff, among others. People usually welcome such generosity. When tipping your porters or trekking leaders, use your discretion as per the quality of the services. Tip money does not form a part of our employees' wages. However, you can use tipping to show appreciation for excellent service at the end of the trip.
