                      Useful Information

                      Best Time To Trek Mardi Himal:

                      Autumn Season mid-September to November is the peak and best time to go to Mardi Himal Base Camp. However, March to May is another best season of the year. Trekking to Mardi Himal Base Camp from December to February is also favorable as the sky is clear but it can get very cold and the trails often get close due to snowfall.

                      Trekking during Monsoon(May to June) is better as the weather is warm and flowers start to bloom and green leaves just appear which makes the trekkers more exciting.

                      June to Mid September is when the monsoon season starts so, Mardi Himal Trek during this time is less popular because the risk of downpours and leeches increases. If you walk willingly to trek during the monsoon you are suggested to wear trekking trousers and mosquito and leeches repellent spray.


                      Are You Fit For Mardi Himal Trek?

                      We compulsorily do not recommend any fitness for doing Mardi Himal Trek. However, you have to be the necessary fit for going off the beaten path. Any traveler willing to explore mountains and who can walk around 5 hours per day can do Mardi Himal Base Camp Trek. There is no direct climbing involved but you need to climb some rocky sections near and high in Mardi Himal.

                        The Mardi Himal trek was very enjoyable and we even learned some Nepalese along the way. I have a lot to thank Mount Glory for this memorable trekking journey. They took such great care of us every step of the way. I would really recommend them.
