Our second day of the trek. We already left all the city crowd, village and Roads. Yes, we are all in nature. The trail ascends gently through the deep mixed forest of Rhododendron, Oak, maple, hemlock and many more flora and faunas. About 4 hours of ascends and descents into the dense forest the small settlement of Forest camp will be welcoming us. From where we can have a stunning view of Annapurna massive on one side and beautiful village of Ghandruk in the other side.
After enjoying the sunrise view and the breakfast, we start to ascend alongside a ridge towards Mardi Himal and Machhapuchre mountains. Soon the forests will start to get thinner and the sky opens more and we get to see more views. As we look down the left, we see the Modi River valley and the Annapurna sanctuary area until the horizon. This area is also famous for many different varieties of flowers, Birds, and Wildlife. We might be able to spot the national bird of Nepal Danphe/Lophophorus. The low Camp offers the towering overhead views of Machhapuchere, where you can spend hours even without realizing it, so Close, but at so far! Here we spend the night.
Leaving the mesmerizing campsite of Low camp is almost heartbreaking. It was being incredibly photogenic spot but soon we will be getting closer to the mountains and the views will be even more beautiful.
About 1:30 hours of a gradual climb through the forest we will get into the middle camp than into the Badal Dada one of the finest views of the trek, from where we can have delightful views of Annapurna South, Hiuchuli, Gangapurna, Machhapuchhre and Mardi Himal itself. Soon we will be trekking above the tree line. The trail continues along the Mardi Himal ridge. We should be able to kick high camp close to lunch. The high camp also offers a wide range of mountain views. We will have enough time to acclimatize, rest and explore the awesome spot on the lap of the mountain.
We wake up early today for sunrise view. After enjoying the beautiful sunrise view with a hot cup of tea and the breakfast we start our day to Mardi Himal base camp. It is almost 1 km up from here but no worries, about 3 hours of walk through the well-established trail on the grassy ridge will take us to the dreaming Mardi Himal base camp. a pleasing view of the Mardi Himal (5,587m / 17,060 ft), Annapurna I (8,091m / 26,545 ft), Annapurna South (7,219m / 23,684 ft), Hiunchuli (6,441/ 21,132 ft), Bhara Shikhar (7,647m / 25,088 ft), Tharpu Chuli/Tent Peak (5,695 m / 18,684 ft), Gandharba Chuli (6,248m / 20,498 ft), Machhapuchhre / Fishtail (6,997m / 22,956), Annapurna base camp (4,130m / 13,550 ft) and many others will sine above everything else. After spending some time in this awesome site we will trek back to High Camp and enjoy the rest of the evening glance at the unique site sorrowing.
It’s again heartbreaking to leave the unforgettable sight of High Camp. Trekking back to sidhing is mostly easy downhill. From low camp, we take left and continue descending. It’s about 1600 meter down on the count. Soon we will be in a different geographical land with a warmer Slade with friendly and welcoming villages. Siding village also offers homestay facilities where you can experience wonderful Nepali culture, their daily lifestyle and spending time with Host family members.
From Sidhing we trek through the flat course of the river valley that passes beautiful cultural villages like Kalimati, Ghalel. It’s an easy walk to Lumre for about 3 hours. By the time you get to Lumre our private tourist vehicle will be waiting for us to spin back to Pokhara.
