Mardi Himal Trek trial is situated in the Annapurna region and incorporates exquisite views of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchre, Manaslu ranges along the Mardi Himal Base Camp. This adventurous and challenging trail is devoid of modernization and is a newly found, off beaten, exotic trekking location. Proper lodging facilities aren’t much available having to rely upon camping.
the drive from Pokhara to Phedi marks the commencement of this trekking trial which falls east to the traditional Annapurna Circuit Trek. Great views of rhododendron and oak forests and some villages brings Dhampus. A decline through Dhampus accompanied by the views of the Annapurna Mountain range brings Pothana. This is followed by a walk through Deurali and the Forest Camp and then a steep climb through the rhododendron and Juniper forests to reach the High Camp. The High Camp offers spectacular scenery of the pristine Annapurna Range and the Mardi Himal and is a perfect sunrise and sunset viewing viewpoint. To reach the peaceful Mardi Himal base camp, a steep trek needs to be carried out. Mardi Himal has not been ever climbed as of now.
The same path is retraced back to reach Deurali after which a visit can be planned to the amazing Jhinu Hot Springs via Tolkha. As the name suggests, the Jhinu Hot Springs is home to natural hot water from the springs which are best to relax and soothe the tired and aching muscles. The trek can be further extended into the Gurung Village of Ghandruk which is another destination for close up views of the Mountain ranges including the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Macchapuchre etc.
This trek, being an off beaten, challenging and unique one, provides trekkers with a never before experience and will certainly be worth all the time and money spent.
