The plan for today is to wake early for a sunrise view of the mountains then after an early breakfast walk up the ridge towards Mardi Himal Base Camp. There is a well-established trail through the grass with a couple of steeper sections however overall not too challenging. Look out for the Dzokpo (yak/ cow crossbred) grazing up here as well as Danphe. In the summer the sheep and goats from lower villages are brought up to graze in this area so you will pass a number of herder’s huts along the way. After three hours you should reach Base Camp at the elevation of 4500m this is where one can look into the Annapurna Sanctuary and the panorama view is spectacular looking at the south face of Annapurna and all of the peaks in the Sanctuary as well as Hiunchuli and Machhapuchhre (Fishtail). back to high camp and trek down to Badal Danda for 1.5 hours.

After Siding trek continues to Lwang Village, that village is a traditional Nepalese village and still very much away from the busier modern tourist treks and it is likely you will stay at a homestay.

When is the Best season for Mardi Himal Trek (Annapurna Region)?

Winter

December to February are the coldest months to trek, with the shortest days and the fewest people. There is often a lot of snow on the ground, especially above Pitam Deurali and getting to Destination can sometimes be very difficult or impossible. Many of the higher villages are abandoned for the winter.

Spring

March, April, and May are some of the busier months and for good reason. The days are getting warmer, the weather is mostly stable and the climbing season is in full swing. It really is an amazing sight from  Badal Danda a, High Camp, Viewpoints, and Mardi Himal Base Camp. The flowers are blooming on the Rhododendrons and the terraced fields turn green with new shoots of vegetables.

Summer

From June to August the summer monsoons bring rain and snow. There are fewer visitors during these months, although some of the most beautiful, warm, blue-sky days occur now. Usually, by the afternoon, there is a rainstorm or snow higher up.

Autumn

This is the most popular time to visit the Annapurna Area. September through November is a time of steady weather patterns, less precipitation, and cleaner air. The lodges are full and everyone is friendly. If you enjoy meeting new friends, want the best chance for great weather and don’t mind an empty, this is the best trekking season.

"The best Trekking Places"

I went with Ram on the Mardi Himal trek, and it was the best and most beautiful trek I’ve been on. Every morning we had an amazing sunrise, and even though I felt bad, Ram took care of me and told me what to eat. Ram and the porters, Krishna and Santosh did a very good job, and we enjoyed the evenings together with them.
