You trek along numbers of camps following a remote and narrow trail to reach the base camp of the stunning Mardi Himal. From the base camp, the trekkers can relish the beautiful view of Mt. Machhapuchhre tagging along with the Annapurna range which seems to be just a foot far from the trekkers. Along the way, trekkers may come across various other nature’s beauty such as amazing rhododendron forests which can be observed throughout the trekking period, Danphe pheasant composing their beautiful melodies, yak grazing in the pasturelands, glacial valleys, and the panorama of Annapurna range, Mt. Machhapuchhre and the Mardi Himal itself. The trekkers can also get the glimpse of day-to-day struggles faced by local people of that region, and also be familiar with the culture of Gurung, Chemjong, and other localities residing in that region. The trekkers will mostly camp as there are no teahouses on the trail; however, in the more accessible places, the trekkers will stay the night in a home-stay or a hotel.
