Moreover, Mardi Himal is at the elevation of 5,587 meters above the sea level and is comparatively easier even for beginners.Furthermore, when you reach the elevation of 3,300m, you will walk through the dense rhododendron forest which is an absolutely stunning view especially during March and April.

More Information

In addition, as the elevation rises, the landscapes change into more rockier, steep and narrow trails. We pass through traditional gurung villages of Pothana, Deurali and there are tea houses at Forest Camp, Rest Camp, Low Camp, Badale danda(Nange Danda), and High Camp along the way from where you can witness majestic view of Annapurna mountain range and terrific Fistail peak. Moreover, to experience even outstanding landscape and beautiful mountains, you can hike up in the morning at around 5 from the high camp to the Mardi base camp along the rocky and steep trails, which would take you a total of 7 hours back and forth. The hike down from High Camp to Sidhing has steep stairs so Duke Nepal suggests you carry a Knee guard.
