This is an out-of-the-ordinary-trek in Nepal. The open terrain bestowing immense chance to travel around long-established villages, incredible landscape, different cultures, stunning views of silvery peaks and captivating views of rivers and striking valley are some of the highlights of this trek.
Located to the east of one of the famous treks of Nepal, the Annapurna Base Camp trek, the Mardi Himal trek is a out of sight but a valued trek. Very few trekkers visit the Mardi Himal Base Camp, fabulously positioned at the foot of Mardi Himal and the striking Machhapuchhre.
The trail goes through delightful rhododendron woods, until you ascend out of the woods at an elevation of 3300m. The setting changes quite unexpectedly into a rough high peak landscape, with astonishing views of Mardi Himal, Annapurna South, Machhapuchhre and Hiunchuli. The High Camp is set at an elevation of 3580 m and bestows amazing close up vistas of the whole Annapurna Range.
This moderate and strenuous 06 days tea house style trek is thought to be perfect for those adventure fanatics who have very fixed schedule and is also favored by the elderly who have the desire to go up to higher elevations.

- What is the required budget for a trip to Nepal?
Is a visa on arrival available?
Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.

Is Asia open for tourists?
Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.
As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.
How much money do I need to bring with me?
Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.
