    We will start our day early today. You will find our private vehicle waiting outside the hotel which will take you to domestic airport for the morning flight to Pokhara after breakfast. After getting off from the flight, we will take a Jeep from Pokhara to Kande which is about 1 hour drive. Our trekking journey begins from Kanda. We trek to Pothana from Kande which is about 3-4 hours walk through rhododendron and pine forests. You get to witness magnificent views of Annapurna ranges, Lamjung Himal and Manaslu along the trails.

  • Day 3 Trek from Pothana to Low Camp (3150m)

    Today our trial continues to Low Camp which is at the height of 3150m. It will take about 3 hours to reach there.

  • Day 5 Hike to Mardi Base Camp (4500m/5hrs)and trek down to Sidding (1700m/4hrs)

After breakfast, we continue our journey from High Camp to Mardi Himal Base Camp which stands at an altitude of 4350m. The trail is narrow and rocky which can be challenging. The hardship of the day is generously rewarded with the breathtaking views of Mardi Himal Base Camp and its surrounding mountain ranges, snowy landscape along with exotic flora and fauna.
