Overview

Mardi Himal Peak climbing is one of the less explored and less climbed peaks that has yet to be brought to light among the people. A peak of 5555 meters altitude, Mardi Himal is situated beside the grand Mt. Machhapuchhre and offers a beginner's experience for climbers who have just initiated their peak climbing journey. The climbing doesn’t necessitate any technical knowledge and training but a basic knowledge of handling tools and kits required for climbing will be fine. Moreover, Mardi Peak was categorized as a climbing peak by Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA).

The trails leading up to Mardi Base camp are full of natural beauties, culturally enriched villages, lush vegetation, and astounding vistas of the high mountains of the Annapurna range. The summit of Mardi Peak grants an opportunity to feast on the grand and majestic views of the Himalayas of the Annapurna region such as Annapurna I-III, Gangapurna, Mt. Annapurna South, Machhapuchhre, Fang Peak, Him Chuli, Singu Chuli, and other peaks.

Mardi Himal Trek and Mardi Peak climbing are hardly known among trekkers and mountaineers so, the routes and the tea houses are usually less crowded. Furthermore, both trekking and climbing the Mardi Himal are feasible for climbers with no prior experience in trekking or climbing.

Similarly, the refreshing and enthralling view of the landscapes and high Himalayas along the way and culturally and traditionally embellished villages and settlements on the way to base camp has added more to its charm and appeal. As per the unique and enchanting scenery offered by the Mardi Peak climbing, it is destined to become one of the most renowned climbing peaks in the Annapurna Conservation Area.

Moreover, we don’t need to pay for any climbing permits and local fees. Unlike any other climbing peaks in Nepal, the trek and climb to the Mardi Himal peak don't demand a climbing fee. However, we need an ACAP permit and TIMS for our entry to Annapurna Conservation Area.

HIGHLIGHTS
    • The summit of the Mardi Peak offers expansive and alluring views of some of the mountains of the Annapurna range.
    • The trails leading to the summit are full of amazing and extraordinary scenery, villages, and the high Himalayas.
    • The Mardi peak is an idyllic peak to kick start a climbing carrier.
    • The trails and paths are less crowded than other treks and peak climbings.

How hard is Mardi Himal Peak Climbing?

    Mardi Himal Peak Climbing can be counted among the fairly easy climbing peaks as most of the climbers opt to ascend the peak before going for the high-altitude peaks. Likewise, the peak grants a perfect opportunity for climbers seeking to commence their expedition in the field of peak climbing. However, basic and mandatory knowledge and ideas about the various climbing kits are required. Apart from that, physical fitness and a sound mind are obligatory things required for every summit.

Best time for the Mardi Himal Peak Climbing

Same as any other peak climbing, the ideal season to ascend the Mardi Himal Peak is spring season ( March to May) and Autumn season ( September to November). The climates are neither too cold nor too hot and the weathers are usually clear with minimal rainfall. So, this time of the year is the optimum time to mount the Mardi Peak.

However, the winter and monsoon are not applicable for peak climbing as the temperature dwindles to minus in the high Himalayas and the weather varies within a short time during the monsoon season. Also, the weather is very hard to predict during the monsoon season. Moreover, the trails are muddy and risky during this time of the year.

Food and Accommodation during Mardi Peak Climbing

Most of our nights are spent in a tea house or lodge, so the food and lodging service is not an issue during the expedition. However, we have to spend a single night in a tent at Mardi Base Camp and food should be carried with us during the so night. Apart from that, the overall facility for both food and accommodation is acceptable. Also, any other expenses imposed due to extended days should be paid by the individuals themselves.

Mardi Himal Peak Climbing Itinerary

The itinerary for peak climbing is customizable and can be modified in order to fit the interests and time of the climbers. However, it is fairly inapplicable for group climbers. So, the changes can be made possible only if all the members agree.

Also, guides and porters are very necessary during this expedition. Climbing solo is highly risky and dangerous.
