We can enjoy the beautifully terraced farms, little shops by the side of the road and the raging Trishuli River on our drive to Pokhara also referred to as the ‘City of Lakes.’ From the city, we get great views of the Himalayas including Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Machhapuchhre, the five peaks of Annapurna.

Day 03:Pokhara, drive to Phedi and trek to Deurali (2100m/6,720ft): 30 minutes drive, 4-5 hours trek. After an early morning briefing and breakfast with our Team Leader, we start our adventure with a drive to Phedi and start trekking from there. We walk on stone steps, terraced fields and through villages and forests before reaching Dhampus where we have lunch. We continue our walk to our basecamp near Deurali which is a small village beautifully located on a ridge with good views of the Annapurna South, Mardi Himal and Macchhapuchhare.

Day 05:Forest Camp to low camp (2970m/9504ft): 5-6 hours Our trail passes through lush forest dotted with the red rhododendrons. The flowers are a common sight in Nepalese hills and it is no surprise that it is Nepal’s national flower. Our trail is very quiet until we reach a clearing of the forest camp. We can take rest and explore the area which is also known locally as Kokar. Overnight in our Forest Base Camp.
Day 06: Low camp to Mardi Himal base camp (3540m/11,328ft): 3-4 hours We trek uphill alongside a ridge towards Mardi Himal and Macchhapuchhre. The tree lines start getting thinner and the area mostly consists of shrubs with isolated rhododendron bushes along the trail. If lucky, we might even come across the Daphne pheasant (national bird of Nepal) on our way to high camp. We ascend up to the high camp, whichis the final destination of the day. From here the mountain views are stunning. Overnight in high camp.
Day 07: Mardi Himal base camp to upper viewpoint (4250m/13600ft), and back to Mardi Himal base camp: 2-3 hours On our trek to the upper viewpoint we ascend and descend, and sometimes on a steep and narrow trail. Our trail passes through pastures and we hike along a narrow ridge before reaching the Upper Viewpoint. The view of the Himalayan vista from here is astonishing. We see Mardi Himal (5587m), Annapurna I (8091m), Annapurna south (7219m), Hiunchuli (6441m), Baraha Shikhar (Mt.

Acclimatization Mardi Himal Peak Climbing
Mardi Himal Peak Climb Best Time to Travel
Chance of success in sumiting peaks depends on tolerance to hard conditions, general physical condition, reasonable fitness and lots of will power. Lobuche East and Island (Imja Tse) can be climbed without previous climbing experience as they are categorized as non-technical peaks. However, it requires stamina and endurance, as it involves a longer period of climbing at high altitude where amount of Oxygen is less. For your kind information, Oxygen cylinders are not provided during peak climbing. Yet, if you have some skills on rock climbing, skills of using climbing equipments and if possible experience in high altitude trek then it will be added advantage. Therefore, my suggestion is that you prepare yourself for stamina and endurance building at least 3 to 6 months prior to your trip. Physical exercise for endurance and building depends on you but jogging at first then running, swimming will help you to strengthen your leg muscles. I also suggest you to visit fitness center at least 3 times a week.
