Overview

For a few years, a new trekking route has been popular as an alternative route of Annapurna Base Camp Trek and that is Mardi Himal Base Camp Trek since it is a short trekking route that can be visited within an itinerary of 5 days. Incredible views of Annapurna Range, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, and Machhapuchhre can be obtained from this route.

The Mardi Himal Base Camp Trek starts from Kande of Kaski where we reach by drive from Pokhara. About one and half hours, we can reach to Australian camp and have breakfast our breakfast. A decade ago, Australians have camped there. So the place now is called Australian camp. In fact, the trek can also begin from Phedi of Kaski. We can reach Phedi by 2-3 hours’ drive. However, we cannot get to the Australian camp from this route. On the first day, we can able to reach the elevation of 2930 m bypassing Forest camp. From 3580 m in height, landscape mountain views can be seen closer.
