Frequently Asked Questions

How many days do we need for Mardi Trekking?

We can do the Mardi Himal Base Camp Trek within 3 to 5 days. We can also make it longer or shorter, depending on your interest. There are many options for doing the Mardi Himal Base Camp Trek. If you want to combine this trek with other popular trekking routes in Annapurna, we can make it longer, from 1 week to 3 weeks. Likewise, if you are looking for a very short route, we can do it within 3 DAYS FROM AND TO POKHARA.
3-day Mardi Himal Trek: This is the shortest version of the trek and starts and ends in Pokhara. It is a challenging trek, but it is possible for those who are in good physical condition.
4-day Mardi Himal Trek: This is a slightly longer version of the trek that gives you more time to enjoy the scenery and acclimatize to the altitude.

How difficult is the Mardi Himal Trekking trail?

The maximum elevation that we accommodate is 3,560m (HIGH CAMP) from sea level. And we will hike to Base Camp, which is located at 4500m. But if you find it difficult to hike up to Base Camp, we can make it easier to hike to Mardi View Point (4200m). That’s why Mardi Himal Hiking is also suitable for entry-level trekkers.

What types of Accommodation and meals we can get on this route?

For accommodation during the trek, you will have a room with an attached toilet for one night, but for the remaining three nights, we will need to adjust to a basic teahouse. You will not need to go outside the hotel for the bathroom, as it is inside the hotel, but you will need to share it with others.
Every hotel on the Mardi route has a menu, so you will have delicious food throughout the journey.

Can we hire a guide and porter?

You can hire an experienced trekking guide from our company, BASE CAMP HIKE. If you wish to do the trek with an experienced guide, you should pay USD 25 per day for their salary. Likewise, if you want to have a basic English-speaking guide, it costs USD 18 per day.
A strong experienced porter can carry the backpacks of two people (maximum 25 kg) and costs USD 17 per day.

When is the best time to visit Mardi Himal?

Very caring and knowledgeable guides!

Our group did a four-day hike to the Mardi Himal Basecamp. Our guides Kamal and Lila went above and beyond our expectations. They were very kind and supportive, throughout the whole trek. They made sure we were safe during the walks, had enough food to eat as well if we were all well rested. During the four-day hike, it was great to see the passion both Kamal and Lila had for trekking and the knowledge they had when navigating the mountains. I am really grateful that I got to experience my first major hike with them! – Isaac

4 Day Mardi Himal Trek

Rated 5.0 out of 5

I went with a group of friends (8 total) on the 4 day trek to Mardi Himal Base Camp. From the beginning of planning our trip, communications with Jayaram was very easy. We sent him our info before we arrived in Nepal and everything (guides, permits, accommodations during the trek, etc) was arranged by the time we got there.

Our guides during the trek (Kamal and Lila) were incredible. They kept us on a good pace to avoid altitude sickness and kept track of our oxygen to make sure we were still good to continue. Kamal and Lila were also very patient in answering all of our many questions during the 4 days.

I’d definitely recommend using Base Camp Hike for any trekking experiences.

I would highly recommend this company. Jayaram arranged everything smoothly before leaving. He also replied very fast. I got very fast response from Jayaram. So I booked trek with his company.

Vishnu, our guide was amazing. He always made sure we were okay and had a very good spirit, always making jokes and taking care of us. Nonetheless, he also taught us Yoga. A very sympathetic man, always laughing and flexible to the itinerary.

View during Trekking to Mardi Himal Base Camp was also amazing. Every day we were rewarded with great Annapurna view.

It was the best trip I ever had.

Thanks all of Base Camp Hike for everything.

It was my first trekking experience in Nepal( Mardi Himal Trekking). It was amazing, I enjoyed every single day of our trekking. I did this trek in November 2021 with guide Kamal from Base Camp Hike company. Our guide and porter were great. A professional guide, friendly porter, and clear weather made this trip simply beautiful and unforgettable.

I’m very grateful for the good organization of this trip. Thank you so much and see you again soon for another trip. I will definitely come again to Nepal for Everest Base Camp Trekking.
