This is a very challenging, high altitude climb to the Mardi Himal Base Camp.

Features Views

Make sure to get both a Nepal tourist visa and a trekking permit.

Need to Know

Altitude sickness can occur at High Camp (3500M) and above, which may cause painful headaches, nausea, and vomiting. Make sure to drink at least 3 liters of water per day. If symptoms persist, travel down at least 500M. Death or serious injury may occur if you do not descend immediately.

Weather can be fickle, so bring gear for heat, cold, and rain. A guide for this trek is highly recommended as they will keep you safe and oriented.

Description

From High Camp, this will be a challenging day on the trail and typically takes about 8 hours round-trip. It is ideal to get up the hill to the viewpoint at sunrise. There is a small bamboo hut at the top with tea offerings. From the viewpoint, you'll travel onward to the Mardi Himal Base Camp site. This is a hard trail, and half of our party got altitude sickness headaches on this section. Bring a lunch with you as there is no food. This is an out-and-back trail, so plan enough time to make your way back down to spend the night at High Camp.
