Essential Information

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements:

While our Mardi Himal Trekking, we will be walking 5-7 hours daily on an average. So this is a moderate trek for the habituated and passionate walkers. The ones going on this journey must be habituated to some exercise. The trek up in the higher altitudes is a bit more demanding. However, if we’re physically fit and have a strong determination and sturdy will power, this trek can be accomplished quickly. Past hiking can be an extra asset for the trekkers on this trek.

 

Best Time to Travel:

This trek can be done all year round. However, autumn and spring are considered the best seasons to be making this trek. The weather is warm and sunny and provides you with the best views possible of nature.
Furthermore, winters have a lesser crowd, so we get the serenity of nature — however, its harsh cold in winters. Trekking in summers and monsoon can be disturbed by rain waters.

 

Acute Mountain Sickness:

During the Mardi Himal Trekking, we move to a higher altitude than 2500m. So our body needs to be acclimatized. We design our treks in slow progress so its more comfortable for a human body to adapt to the changing climate. You might experience symptoms like headache, disturbed sleep, nausea, cough, palpitation, etc. during acclimatization. Trekkers are highly recommended to drink plenty of liquids like water and garlic soup. We discourage the consumption of alcoholic substances as it can hamper the fitness and may lead to causing sickness. However, if you experience any symptoms of AMS, our doctors will look after you, and you can also be stopping your trek. The group leader can also ask you to descend as it is the only cure to Acute Mountain Sickness.
