A six days trek in the Annapurna mountain region, up to 4300m altitude. The jungle in Chitwan, a rafting adventure and a visit to the royal cities in Kathmandu valley are completing this trip. It is a journey tailored for adventurous and sporty people lacking enough time to make a longer trip.
The Mardi-trek is a short, adventurous hike at intermediate level, which gives you a very nice impression of the Himalayas in a less touristic area. You will pass rice fields and rhododendron forests, as well as a few local villages. Different viewpoints on the way offer a fantastic view of the Annapurna’s Machapuchhre, Mardi Himal and Ganggapurna on clear days.
Upper View Point is located at the foothills of Mardi Himal at 4300m (with the peak at 5587m). Those who want more, can go further upto Mardi Himal Base Camp (4500m).
This trek is less known to most hikers so you can enjoy a piece of pure nature and authentic Nepalese hospitality. Along the way you will stay and eat at trekkers lodges.
During a day of rafting and overnight at the River Beach Camp, you will discover the beautiful Himalayan rivers of Nepal.
The last part of this journey contains a visit at Chitwan National Park. In this park on the border with India you will explore the jungle with a canoe and by foot, and who wants can enjoy an elephant-ride too. Accommodation and local guides are provided by a local jungle-lodge in the rural village Meghauli.
The city visits introduce you to Hinduism and Buddhism in Nepal: there is Swayambhunath, an impressive Buddhist stupa in Kathmandu, also known as the “monkey temple” and located on a hilltop from which you have a beautiful view over the city.
Bhaktapur and Patan are both royal cities and protected world heritage sites.
