“Once in a blue moon”; same as this phrase, life welcomes one beautiful vacation to fill our busy schedule with the breath-taking memories that are found in the arms of nature. Same as taking decision for one of the most undiscovered treks was too mesmerizing Mardi himal trek . I know it’s unheard and not much popular as of Annapurna Base Camp, Ghorepani Poonhill Trek, Everest Base Camp, Fishtail Base Camp, and others. But believe my words, trek to Mardi Himal Base Camp can be your one of the best adventurous and spectacular experiences of receiving several vibes from nature mother.
Mardi Himal with the height of 5587m is situated east of one of the most visited and glorious Mt. Annapurna Base Camp trekking destination of Nepal. It is an unexplored treasure that is unrevealed yet. Very few trekkers mark their way to complete this astonishing trek. Mardi Himal trek route gives an opportunities for many marvelous scenarios of rivers while stepping down to the upper Mardi Khola and this pathway also includes thrilling Himalayas sceneries of Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Hiunchuli, Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Fishtail (Machhapuchhare), etc. With diverse in flora and faunas, this trek is perfect for environment loving trekkers. You can explore to most fascinating creatures there.
To begin this unexpected trek; I took a drive to Pokhara from Kathmandu. Pokhara is one of the most happening places for tourism in Nepal, where I can feel myself with a part of nature by visiting beautiful Phewa lake, and Begnas lake. Enjoying sitting at the edge of lake Phewa with soul-soothing music and amazing sunset view day 1 is now passed away. While day 2 starts up with a beautiful sunrise and my journey got started.
On day 2, I went to Kande from where I have to start walking for about 3 hours to9 reach the place named Deurali, which has about 2200m elevation. After Deurali, I kept on trekking for about 6 hours to make up to Forest Camp which had elevation about 2550m above the sea level. While walking through these trails, I truly forgot about everything I left behind my workplace cause I was now exploring myself too along with this loving nature.
On day 3, I packed by trekking bag and tightened up my shoe’s laces to walk more for those fascinating views of various majestic mountains. I walked about 5 hours from Forest camp to Low camp which was 2900m and continuously did trekking to reach High camp which took me approximately 3 hours from Low camp. The high camp had an elevation of about 3580m.
I did continuous trekking this day because tomorrow I wanted to have more time with me to see the glorious scenery and feel them from the core of my heart and soul which was very needed at that moment of my busy life in an urban city.
Starting with a very energetic morning on day 4, I walked to make up to Mardi Base Camp (4500m) which was bewitching and very pleasing to my eyes and my heart. I wish I could hold that time to capture it. It took me to heaven when I saw it finally in the arms of Himchuli, Mardi Himal, Mt. Annapurna in the south and majestic Mt. Fishtail. When I breathe in the fresh air, it filled my soul and that made me knocked out from my imagination. Such a magical it was! After the hike to Mardi Base Camp, I returned to High Camp which was truly heartbreaking for me and I guess it could be the same for you too!
So on day 5, I trekked along beautiful forest from high camp to Sidhing and took rest there. Sidhing had 1860m elevation.
On day 6, I packed my bag to go Lumre and then returned back to Pokhara. After those restless treks, I finally decided to take more rest and enjoy some trekker’s massage which was available near the hotel’s spa center.
When morning started; I planned to enjoy the beautiful Pokhara by going to join local tours. I found interesting places to visit like Mahendra cave, Davis fall, Phewa lake, International Mountain Museum, and World Peace Pagoda which was very famous in Pokhara.
And on the final day, I came back to Kathmandu from Pokhara. After completing this amazing trekking, I valued more things in my life which were hidden within me same as Mardi Himal was hidden in this beautiful Nepal. Undiscovered but very precious.
