Mardi Himal trek used to accessed only by limited trekking groups with tents and catering team for long time. The trek follows off the beaten trails of shepherds as it still provides summer grazing. Mardi Himal Base camp trek was officially opened in 2012 and is still pristine and hidden treasure of Annapurna. There are limited teahouses with basic facilities en route. This is relatively easy and short and unspoiled trek not far from Pokhara lake city. Less challenging than the trek to nearby Annapurna Base Camp. Yet it is highly diverse with cultural insight, beautiful forest walks with Rhododendron, Orchid and alpine landscape. As the trail mostly stays along the ridge, the altitude gain becomes more gradual.
After being on the Mardi Himal Base camp View point, we come back until Forest camp and follow the trails to Natural Hot Spring, where you can have a Natural bath at the pool. The pool is about a half an hours away from the local village on the bank of Modi Khola. The lodge are clean and confort with eletricity facility and auspicious dining hall. The place offer the amazing view of Mardi and in the front the biggest Ghandruk village is smailing at you.
After having your pleasant overnight at Jhinu Danda, we descend to Kimring khola and keep continue to Syauli Bazar. After the Syauli Bazar the path is flate and easy to Birethanti where we will stop for Lunch. Walk about a half an hours from Birethanti to Nayapul and take a bus to Pokhara.
