For climbing Mardi Himal, base camp will be pitched at 4100m. below the south face of Mardi Himal and the south – west ridge of Machhapuchhre. High camp will be placed at 4600m. climbing steeply towards the col between the east face of Mardi Himal and the connecting ridge of Machhapuchhre.

Day 08 :  The day for summit to Mardi Himal (5,587,) and back to Base Camp, 5-6 hours

We need to make a very early start to ensure success. The first part of the climb is the couloir leading to the East Col (5,400m), between Mardi Himal and Machhapuchare. The base of the couloir is at 4,950m, where we will most likely need to put on crampons. The couloir is a very long snow climb, not steep, but it is sustained and tiring, and it will take about 4 hours to reach the col. On the col it will probably be quite windy (unless we are very lucky), but it is only an hour or so to the top, up a pleasant snow ridge. Once on the summit, we can rest and enjoy being on a Nepalese summit in the midst of the Himalaya. After taking photos and perhaps having a bite to eat, we descend to the high camp and then continue to base camp for a good meal.

Day 09:  Reserve day

If we won’t be able to make summit on our planned date because of unfavorable circumstances like bad weather … we will attempt this day again to climb up over Mardi Himal.

Day 10:   High Camp to Jhinu Danda (1780m), 4-5 hours trek

We descend from Low Camp down a very steep trial through the forest. We pass a shepherds hut in a broad clearing after an hour’s hike where we can stop to rest our legs. The trial continues down steeply to the hillside village of Sidhing, about 500m above the river alley. Trek descends through the village of Landruk, an ethnic group of Gurung settlement and reach to Jhino danda. We spend our time to relax on natural hot spring there.

Day 11:  Jhinu Danda to Nayapul then drive to Pokhara, 4 hrs trek & 1 hrs drive

Today after breakfast, we will hike up to Nayapul and then take a bus ride to reach Pokhara. The trek to Nayapul is a lovely hike as you can enjoy the views of beautiful landscapes along the trail back. We will haul up for lunch on the way.

Day 12:  Fly from Pokhara to Kathmandu, 25 min

We fly to Kathmandu in the afternoon or early in the morning. We will have a farewell dinner in the evening.We can spend the day taking the much needed rest or catch up on some last minute shopping.  Our flying to Kathmandu will give us a incredible views of sky touching Himalayas.
