Mardi Himal Trekking in March, April and May Season

Enjoy a week trek to Mardi Himal Base Camp and experience the delighting moderate Himalayan trip in the Annapurna region.

Mardi Himal Trekking has emerged a wonderful trip for the adventure seekers in Nepal, which is not so much trafficked. The trek has enticed the trekkers around the globe to spend a magnificent week in the Himalayan region of Annapurna. It is suitable for the family groups as well that escorts you through the isolated trail inside the rhododendron woods.

Driving to Kande from Pokhara, it leads you via amazing settlement of the Australian Camp. The impressive Annapurna vistas energize you to explore the alpine terrain. As the trail becomes narrow once you hike higher, you need to be aware of the slippery section. Forest Camp, Low Camp and High Camp are some the best places for the overnight stays. You will get an opportunity to enjoy the typical Nepali, Indian and continental cuisine throughout the trek.

Best Seasons for the Mardi Himal Trek

To grab the best views of Mardi Himal range, Annapurna and Fishtail, trekking in March April and May is highly recommended. If you want to grab another season, then hike to Mardi Himal in September, October, November and December. A couple of months in winter: January and February are also amazing months for the delighting views, but you need to crawl around wearing the crampons.

Spring and autumn offers best views and the weather is suitable for the trekkers. The weather becomes warm during the day and it will be cold during the morning and evening (night). We hardly expect rain in this season, but carrying a light raincoat is the best idea.
