Physical Condition And Experience Requirements
The Mardi Himal Trek is normal trekking of the Annapurna region, it is possible to trek with a basic level of fitness, a good training plan before your Mardi Himal Trek trip will make it that much more enjoyable. It doesn’t require any climbing skills. We have seen many different ages of travelers completing this trek like old, young, overweight, and underweight and they all very much appreciated the journey, as a non-technical trek that does not require crampons, walking poles, oxygen cylinders, ropes, and technical equipment. But our company will provide warm down jackets and sleeping bags if you do not have your own. A normal ABC trek is accessible to most trekkers who have some fitness level and decent drive with a lot of stamina to last two weeks in the cold weather in the mountain.
If you could convince yourself to take some normal pre-training courses like daily physical exercises, jogging, running, climbing the staircase and walking down, cycling, swimming and hitting the gym, etc that would be greatly helped to accomplish the journey easier.
Accommodation during the Trek
Alpine Ramble Treks will be accommodated in the best hotel-like 3 stars categories with the good facilities of WIFI, Hot Shower, and AC room with the best breakfast services on the selection in Kathmandu, and all Accommodations are provided on the twin-sharing basis. The single supplement will be served if you are a single traveler. Accommodations during the trek in the mountains, basically you will be staying at basic trekking lodges where you will have a nice and clean room with warm blankets, pillows, and comfortable matrices ( matrices size cannot be very thick but still comfortable). All the facilities during the Mardi Himal Trek are not the same as in Kathmandu but are still very pleasant and suitable. Do not expect everything to be the high level of standards in the mountain. Alpine Ramble Treks would be glad to ensure the attached bathroom in every possible place even in the Annapurna region in advance booking, in some places; you have to compromise in sharing a bathroom at a high altitudes area because there is no room with an attached bath have being built at this elevations area.

The meals are quite surprising on this trek compared to other trekking routes Like Everest and Langtang regions of Nepal, all are selected items from the menu of the lodge that will be fresh, hygienic, and tasty. In some places, non-veg item meals are available however we do not recommend taking these meat items in the Annapurna region as they are not hygienic and healthy during the trek. Fresh and healthy meals during the trek like Dal Bhat, Vegetable items, and soups items ( Garlic soup, potato soup, onion soup with the food, ) are recommended which are prepared by the local supplement and do not store for a long period of time to serve.
