However you will have to pay additional cost for activities like charging your device, hot showers to the tea houses.

  • Weather in the Himalayas is variable, it doesn’t remain constant for long time, and there is no exception in case of Mardi Himal. So, weather of Mardi Himal fluctuates without any trace. Even tough, the weather fluctuates every time, season like autumn and spring doesn’t by autumn and spring is clear and quite favorable for trekking.
    The time from mid September to early December is considered as the perfect time for trekking in any part of Nepal. Likewise it is the best time for trekking Mardi Himal also.
    If you want to trek from February to April then you are choosing the second best time of the year to trek Mardi Himal. It offers the most suitable weather and climate.
    Winter and summer season trek comes with lots of challenges. Due to this reason, trekkers usually do not want to trek in this season. Trekkers usually go for spring and autumn season trek. As they offer clean and clear environment for trekking.

  • While trekking in mountainous region you should strictly consume which keep you filled and fueled. You won't get much choice in foods the serves limited menu only. They mostly serve typical Nepalese food. The most perfumed among Nepalese menu is Dal Bhat as it is healthy and filling as well.

The prices of these items are affordable, but luxury drinks may cost you more.
    Alcohols are also available in this region. But we suggest you not to drink alcohol during the trek, as drinking alcohols during the trek degrade your health conditions.

  • There are lots of guesthouses and tea houses providing accommodation along the trekking trail. However, this accommodation center provides basic facilities only. In peak season, due to over crowd of trekkers, you may be compelled to share your rooms with fellow trekkers.

    The option for accommodation becomes limited as you ascend to higher altitude. In off seasons you will have more accommodation options in lower rates. They also offer discount scheme as per their terms and conditions.

    Mardi Himal Trek in March

    My two sisters and I did Mardi Himal trek with Shyam. It was very amazing. We start our trekking on March 02 and ends on 11 March. First day we felt quit hard due to very bad weather and a bit tired as we directly fly from Kathmandu. But second day we saw very nice view from Deurali. We all enjoyed every day with our guide and porters. DHA gave us good guide, porter & good hotel in Kathmandu and Pokhara. We advise to anyone traveling Nepal to book all activities with this company. Thank you Suman and Hari for making our trip memorable!!!
