Mardi Himal Trek starts from Pokhara. We will take a short drive of about an hour to reach Kande from where we will start our trekking. Then we will go through a steeper trail and then reach to the Australian camp from where we will head downwards to Pothana. We will trek up again to reach Deurali from where we will trek through the dense forest and reach low camp. We will take our tour further ahead and soon we will notice that the trees and the forest start to get smaller. After an hour of trek, we will reach to an open area from where we can see the astonishing view of Mt. Annapurna and Fishtail.
