birthday hike

Very difficult trail but very rewarding scenes.

From another world. The best of Nepal by far. Do not hesitate. Discard the Everest base camp and surrender to surrealism.

The highest altitude trek in the shortest amount of days, the Mardi Himmel packs everything the Himalayas has to offer into one short trek.

I did this trek as part of my "post Peace Corps World tour" in Feb. of 1980....a good time to go before the monsoon rains start (and higher altitude snow) This trek starts east of Pokhara in western Nepal and goes up the Maryisandi River Valley to Manang, over the high Thorang La pass (about 18,000') down to Muktinah, and then down the Khali Gandaki Gorge. It basically circumvents the peaks of the Annapurna Massif (10th highest in the world), then goes by Dhaulagiri (#8) and Machachupare (looks like the Matterhorn but 8000' higher)....I did the trek just 2 years after it had opened, in 1980, and for most of the trek (up to Muktinak) my buddy and I and and a few others we hiked with were the only ones on the trail (for a good 2 weeks), unlike the last week on the KhaliGandi part, which was easier and full of tourists...make sure you hike at the right time of year, bring winter weather gear and good boots, and watch the weather; in October 2014, 43+ trekkers died on the Thorong la pass in a blizzard caused by an Indian Ocean cyclone...you can overnight with local people in their huts or camp out...we did both; but, at least in 1980, we had to camp out at higher altitudes since we found the villages deserted, the people having gone down the valley for the winter...so carry plenty of food with you if you do the hike in winter...we found some snow (about a foot) below Manang, so we acclimatized there (it's about 10,000') and waited for most of the snow to melt before going over the pass...if you have ever had altitude sickness, DO NOT attempt to go over the pass, near 18000', and Muktinah, at 12000', causes some people problems...all in all this trek was one of the high points in my life; do it if you have the time (takes about 3 weeks)....

Best hike ever. Was great

this my first experince trek in Nepal, with amazing view & beutiful scenery along the trails, eyes never in bored.

Great way to start the morning going down a ravine to the creek then up the other side to find 3300 steps ahead.Hardest 2 hours I ever done.A lot better for next stage to Ghoreparni.Excellent trip.

We extended this trek to 5 days and did a big circuit of about 60 kms.Started at Nayapul and got to Tikhedunga first day an easy start.Started early next morning with a gruelling 3300 steps to Ulleri than off to Ghorepani for the night.Up 4am next morn to Poon Hill for sunrise over the Annapurna ranges.Spectacular views.Next off to Deurali and then Tadapani for the night.Beautiful day seeing wild monkeys swinging in the magnificent forests.Just beautiful throughout. Next day wandering through Rhododendron forests and following mountain streams to Ghandruk for the last night.Last day nice and easy walk through farm lands and valleys back to Nayapul.Magnificent trek with the best guide and porter that one could wish for,all organised through a great company in Pokhara.All up about 60 kms of pretty hard hiking at times but well worth it.

The definition of a journey. On this trek, I felt like I was in a new world every day. Every dedicated hiker should do this trek in their lifetime. The mountain views are stunning, and the incredible joy of crossing over Thorang La Pass is unbeatable. This is a trek for the soul. While road construction is unavoidable, ACAP has made it possible to avoid the road by opening up new, beautiful, even challenging trails that can take you off the road for days at a time. Even in the Kali Gandaki Valley it is possible to stick to the east bank and feel far from the road. Don't be deterred by construction, do this trek!

just spectacular

Be ready for a lot of steps!!

MAJOR MESS. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. Probably 2/3 of the trail is destroyed by Chinese company building a road. There is nothing left but dust, dirt road & trucks. Annapurna should be taken off the list of treks.

Nice little hour long hike through a beautiful forest with very little traffic. Highly recommend.

Memorable Trip

Second day walk on the around Annapurna trek. Half day of to recover from injury
