      We began our adventure after an early morning breakfast by driving to Phedi and starting our trek from there. Our journey took us along stone steps, terraced fields, through villages and forests, until we reached Dhampus where we stopped for lunch. After that, we continued on to Deurali, a small village situated on a ridge, from where we had excellent views of the Annapurna South, Mardi Himal, and Macchhapuchhare. We spent the night in Deurali at a Trekking Lodge (Tea House).

        Our trail takes us through a lush forest adorned with bright red rhododendrons. These flowers are a common sight in the Nepalese hills and it's no surprise that they are also Nepal's national flower. The trail is peaceful until we reach a clearing, which is locally known as Kokar and serves as a forest camp. Here we can take a rest and explore the area. We will spend the night at the Forest Camp.

For lunch, stop at "Low camp" before continuing up to Badal Danda (Cloud Hill), which is above the treeline.

          From the lodge in Badal Danda, the panoramic view of Machhapuchhre and Mardi Himal is a sight to behold. We leave the treeline ridge and follow the trail of the majestic Alpine zone to start our day. The snow-capped peaks of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, and Fishtail loom in the distance above the deep valley on either side of the Alpine ridge.

          After trekking for a while, we reach the High Camp. The site stands above the clouds, and the snowy mountains will appear right before you. We will spend the night in High Camp.

            The Alpine Ridge offers incredible panoramic views, with Mardi Himal and Mt Fishtail visible above us, and Annapurna I, Gangapurna, and Annapurna III visible in the distance. After exploring the Base Campsite, we will return to the High Camp.

                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.
