We can enjoy the beautifully terraced farms, little shops by the side of the road and the raging Trishuli River on our drive to Pokhara also referred to as the ‘City of Lakes.’ From the city, we get great views of the Himalayas including Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Machhapuchhre, the five peaks of Annapurna. Pokhara is also a tourist destination, so we take some time out in the evening and enjoy! Overnight in Pokhara.

Day 2
Drive to Kande and trek to Pothana / Deurali (2,125m)

After an early morning breakfast, we start our adventure with a drive to Phedi and start trekking from there. We walk on stone steps, terraced fields and through villages and forests before reaching Dhampus where we have lunch. We continue our walk to Deurali which is a small village beautifully located on a ridge with good views of the Annapurna South, Mardi Himal and Machhapuchhare. Overnight in Deurali.

Day 3
Trek to Low Camp (3,150m)

Our trail passes through lush forest dotted with the red rhododendrons. The flowers are a common sight in Nepalese hills and it is no surprise that its Nepal’s national flower. Our trail is very quiet until we reach a clearing of the forest camp. We can take rest and explore the area which is also known locally as Kokar. Overnight in Forest Camp.

Day 4
Trek to High Camp (3,700m)

Beginning at the Low Camp, we will trek directly to the High Camp today. Leaving the Badal Danda behind, we will proceed for 4-5 hours walk along the Mardi Himal edge. We trek tough towards high camp leads through the Mardi ridge providing the majestic views of Mardi Himal and Machhapuchhre. After climbing through the Rhododendron timberlands for 1.5 hours we will arrive at the Middle Camp. The tree lines begin getting slighter and the zone generally comprises of bushes with confined rhododendron bushes along the trail. If you are lucky enough, we may even see the “Daphne” (national bird of Nepal) on our approach to high camp.

Day 5
Hike to Mardi Base Camp and trek down to Sidding (4,500m)

We take a different route in high camp that takes us to Sidhing instead of going back down to Mardi Himal. The different route lets us experience something different and makes our trek exciting. Siddhing offers a quiet stay for trekkers as it is tucked away from the busier trails. Overnight in Sidhing village.

Day 6
