Essential Information

Food and Accommodation

Food and accommodation during this trek are minimalistic since the areas falling in the trekking route are far from modern. You will stay at teahouses that provide simple and clean services. Heaters are only found in the dining halls and food like pasta, noodles, dal bhat, potatoes, vegetables, cereals, eggs, rice, soup, etc. are served. You may get private single, double, triple rooms or even rooms shared with more people depending on the season. While in Kathmandu and Pokhara, you will stay at a 3-star hotel providing breakfast. In the city, lunch and dinner are not included. 

Trek Guide(s) & Other Staff Arrangement

The most important thing that makes this trek, enjoyable and memorable is the skilled, experienced, courteous and helpful guide(s) and the crew members with the ability to operate our days on the mountain smoothly. Our trip will be led by the best and most professional leaders. The entire staffs are carefully selected based on their appropriate experience, leadership skills and personal aptitude. To sustain local communities, we only employ local staff who have adequate knowledge about culture, ecosystem, flora, fauna, geography, and history of their local region(s).

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance for any itinerary of our company is a condition of booking a holiday. At the very least you should have emergency medical and repatriation insurance which must include the cost of mountain rescue. Please carefully check your insurers’ Terms and Conditions, in particular, you should make sure the following is covered: 1) Activity (i.e. touring, trekking or mountaineering) 2) Maximum altitude reached on trek 3) Helicopter evacuation in an emergency. You need to understand that ultimately the burden of any expense incurred in evacuation and repatriation procedures will be borne by you and that it is your responsibility to pay any costs incurred in respect of any evacuation or for medical treatment. You should be fully aware of the implications involved in arranging your travel insurance and understand the limitations and exclusions of your policy. You should be aware that under certain circumstances, Our Company Guide might instigate rescue proceedings via helicopter (or any other means necessary) in situations of medical emergency without first contacting your insurance company for their approval.

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements

Mardi Himal trek is suitable for passionate walkers who can walk for around 4-5 hours a day with a light day-pack. The trek is relatively more comfortable for those who are used to walking in higher elevations. We request to jog and exercise regularly at least a few months before the beginning of the trip. Past hiking experience would be an asset, but no technical skill is required for this trip. It is also essential that you consult with our doctor before booking the trek. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases should also inform us before booking the trek.

Best Time to Travel

 Annapurna Base Camp Trek during autumn (Sept. to November) and spring (March to May) seasons is best. During this time, the sky is clear, and the views are excellent. The weather is fit for trekking without rain. We can also enjoy lush vegetation on the lower regions of the trail, particularly during the spring season.
