Mardi Himal Trek

Nepal

There is a reason, and you can see this reason in an international travel magazine why the Annapurna Region is famous for trekking? In the top 10 treks of the world, Annapurna Region has always been mentioned by an editor. Well, one may go to an extent to say, it has been mentioned accidentally by an editor. But the fact is a fact. There is more than something in the Annapurna Region to the trekkers who are also the seekers of beauties and originalities. We all cannot disagree there are more trekking trails in the Annapurna Region than in any other trekking region of Nepal. New trekking trails are created by the locals; this is how Mardi Himal Trek was born in 2012 from one of the places of the Annapurna Region. According to most of the trekking agencies of Nepal, Mardi Himal Trek is going to capture the trekking minds of the people in the future. It is an inclusive trek, meaning it is a real trek without a mixture of an unreal thing. Mardi Himal Trekking is a fine example of trekking, and it matches the definition given by the Cambridge Dictionary. We don’t want to tell you in detail about Mardi Himal Trek because you will be in the midst of natural beauty at an altitude of 4000 m plus because we want you to walk on the top of a ridge because we want you to be on its trekking trail. The moving clouds are below this trekking trail while the mountains lie in front of your eyes, and the mountain villages wait for you with silence and tell you silently “Welcome to our village.” Mardi Himal Trek is time for you to enjoy the best hospitality service that the villagers can give you from their hearts and souls in the remotest Himalayan Region.

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Kathmandu (1400m)

Arrive in Kathmandu at your favorite airlines; we will be waiting for you outside the airport because you are our clients, and you have great faith in us when you are in Nepal. At the same time, we want to create an impression in you because we believe the first impression is the lasting impression that traces on the back of your mind forever. If you arrive in Kathmandu in our office time, then we would, of course, take you to our office; otherwise, we would take you to the hotel where there are attached bathrooms, TV, and phone to meet your expectations. Give us a call on our mobile if you have any problems in such a place. Order tea or coffee and breakfast, all of them are free; just give a call from your hotel room.

Accommodation: Hotel

When it comes to private transportation, we don’t think it is good to reserve a car because you are single, and even if there is a large group of 10 people, the bus is a better choice. The bus you are going to use is a tourist bus, on the way; you will see the villages and small towns that tell you what the rural life of Nepal is all about. It is a better way to know this, just by sitting on the seat of a bus, and what you will know in addition is you will see some of the greatest rivers of Nepal like the Trishuli and Marshyangdi, which are very much famous for rafting in Nepal. Observing all this, you will reach Pokhara, the city of lakes, and you will be spending your night by one of the lakes.

Meals: Breakfast

Accommodation: Hotel

See an altitude in an itinerary; do you know the type of landscape that you are going to a walkthrough? The uphill trekking trail that you are going to follow takes you to the forest, villages, and steps; made of stones; arranged by human beings. The prominent village you will reach is Dhampus, and you are going to remember this village for offering you beautiful scenery of mountains. Another prominent village is Pothana, and you will remember this village equally for offering you beautiful scenery of mountains. Looking at these mountains and enjoying their indescribable features, you will reach Deurali.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Accommodation: Lodge/Mountain Teahouse

Ascending means seeing more mountains, here you will see, Annapurna South, Fishtail, and Mardi. But it is not all about ascending; you will also see the mountain trees like Rhododendron, birch, oak, maple, hemlock, and daphnia, among them, you walk. So, you can say the trekking trail is taking you to the world of greenery, at the same time; it creates access to you to see the mountains mentioned above, and you will reach an open place later.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Accommodation: Lodge/Mountain Teahouse

The trekking trail is lonely as well as silent; perhaps, you are only the person who is walking here. The trekking trail takes you to the forest that has a comfortable environment, meaning there is no need to be afraid of uncertainties, like the wild animals. The smell of the forest, meaning the organic smell of the forest, you can feel it. This is how you reach a Low Camp, which will reward you with the magnificent view of Fishtail Mountain, the best close-up, you can say up until now.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Accommodation: Lodge/Mountain Teahouse

Trekkers know they have to ascend during the trek, and they take this activity from their hearts and prepared minds; we have observed this along with trekkers during Mardi Himal Trek. Since you are heading to a High Camp, you have to always think that you are getting more than you have thought. One thing is sure; you will always see the greatest view of the mountain you have ever thought of in your mind. High Camp is at such an altitude; you will see everything that comprises mountains, cliffs, hills, valleys, and ridges.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Accommodation: Lodge/Mountain Teahouse

See the sub-heading of the itinerary, that is, day 7, and there is a word return. When there is a word return in the itinerary, you have to start your trek early in the morning because you have to trek up and then return to the place from where you have started. There is no need to ask a question because the trekking trail goes up and up till it reaches its point from where you can see the most beautiful view of the mountains. Thanks to God, even at such an altitude, you will see a pasture where animals can graze in summer. Since you are heading to an Upper Viewpoint, one thing you can be sure about the landscape is rocky.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Accommodation: Lodge/Mountain Teahouse

What a descend to 1700 m? Back to greeneries. There is a surplus as you compare this with the cold environment of an Upper Viewpoint. After all, a trek should have all the elements from an uphill journey to a cold climate to plentifulness. Sidling village is an example of the last element. Enjoy a homestay part of the trek with the lovely people of Siding.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Accommodation: Lodge/Mountain Teahouse

title image_5D4WEUGEC46B2NDAtitle image_6YUFHNSK4QHNSV9A

From Sidling, trek downhill to Lumle, a town, from where you drive to Pokhara, the city of lakes. The two important villages you will come across are Kalimati and Ghalel. Although the Annapurna Region is home to the Gurung and the Magar people, you will see in these villages the Brahmin people living, as well. All these people celebrate the festivals of light together, and it is called Diwali in Nepali as well as in Hindi.

Meals: Breakfast

Accommodation: Hotel

As you drive to Kathmandu on a bus, you will know the insights of Nepal, especially its rural life. There are small towns on the way, and you will also pass through small villages. The road or the highway goes by the river, Trishuli, one of the best rivers in Nepal for rafting. There are also many resorts on the way, and this river is the best for beach tourism. If you like, then you can enjoy rafting there, and the best thing is it always comes within your budget. The highway had been carved from the hills and the valleys, and there are green plants everywhere, a sign of fertility and prosperity. You will also see the terraced fields of rice.

FAQs

Yes, it will operate on the day it is scheduled, except if is beyond our control, such as political issues and natural disaster that will create undesirable travel conditions.

TMG does not expect previous trekking experience from you; however, all the treks that it organizes are physically demanding. It recommends starting an exercise prior to your trek date. Many of its trips are at higher altitudes, the minimum is 2,000m, and the max is 5,000m plus.

The main essentials to bring are:

  • Sturdy and comfortable hiking boots, flip-flops
  • Sleeping bag (depending on your accommodation) and -20 degree Celsius for colder regions
  • Daypack, trekking bag pack, dry sack, and camera bag
  • Few changes of clothes for the varying temperatures
  • For cold weather, hiking pants, thermals, gloves, neck warmer/scarf, beanie, a warm inner jacket and a windproof/waterproof outer jacket and down jacket are essential.
  • Water purification supplies, a reusable water bottle, and a camelback water bladder
  • Sunscreen, Hat, sunglasses, moisturizing skin cream, and lip balm
  • Few snacks, granola bars
  • A hiking stick or two
  • Waterproof case, fabric bandages such as moleskin, a headlamp, altitude sickness, and other medication
  • Camera
  • Hand sanitizers, toilet paper, band-aids, wet wipes
  • Extra batteries (solar chargers recommended)

On the popular trekking routes, everyday supplies, such as toilet paper, soap, chocolate bars, and even basic hiking supplies can be purchased along the way, though prices rise dramatically as you go higher in elevation. Try to stock up lower down and buy locally-produced products such as fruit, biscuits, etc. Maps are easy to find in Nepal.

Yes. We run from solo travel to group travel.

Ensure you bring a copy of your travel insurance, a copy of your passport, and 3 passport-sized photos. The fee for the Tourist Visa with Multiple Entry for 30 days is US $50. You have to pay for these at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu.

The treks in Nepal are suitable for a wide spectrum of experience and physical fitness. If you can walk uphill for a few hours each day, then you can find a suitable trek in Nepal. A longer trek, crossing high passes and into remote regions demands a higher degree of endurance. 

  • Trek legally. Independent trekkers are by law not allowed to take any staff, for this you need a licensed Trekking Agency which is solely authorized to employ staff for foreign trekkers. Do not hire staff or "independent guides" through hotels, unless they have a Trekking Agent license or offer this service through an affiliated Trekking Agent.
  • Please make sure you take all of your trash, including bottles and cans from goods consumed in restaurants, to the nearest dustbins. Pollution and lack of trash management in the villages on the treks - including trash-clogged rivers and mounds of discarded beer bottles.
  • All of our team are local. Either they are our guides, drivers, or a porter. On this trip, we will stay overnight at a teahouse run by the local people. Most of the teahouse in mountains is run by family members. We pay them for the accommodation and the food. That supports the local people. Our team highly encourages you to buy local products and help local entrepreneurs to be sustainable.
  • Walk miles for a good cause; Travel Max Guide is a local tour operator, promotes sustainable and responsible tourism in Nepal. Care about our community and the Environment. As a part, we contribute certain income for a good cause to our communities and the people. Working on behalf of the children of Nepal. Specially support in educational assistance.

All our trekking guides are certified as Wilderness First-Aid Course and have years of experience in the mountains.

  • In a short period, trek to see all the famous mountains of the Annapurna Region.
  • A homestay trek to experience how the hilly Nepali people live in a remote region in Nepal.
  • A pleasure and scenic walk that the city dwellers of the most developed countries of the world deserve right from the start.

Please read up extensively on Altitude sickness. Be familiar with the symptoms and do not ignore them. Be sure to keep to a conservative ascent schedule and drink plenty of fluids. From the first realization of headaches or stomach cramps notify your guide directly and return to a lower altitude. Carry some Diamox (acetazolamide) pills, easily found in pharmacies in Nepal. But note that Diamox is not an immediate fix for acute mountain sickness; it speeds up part of the acclimatization process which in turn helps to relieve symptoms. It may take a day or two. Don’t take acute mountain sickness lightly and even on mild experiences descend to a lower altitude. Encountering serious sickness, high-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) symptoms, or high-altitude cerebral edema (HACE) you MUST descent with at least one other trekker (or your guide). Consulting the pharmacist where you purchase Diamox is strongly advised. One major thing to remember is that body requires large amounts of water at altitude to counteract sickness so be sure to drink more than you are used to!

There is no age restriction.
