Then, we reach an open wide area where trees lines disappears for rocky hills and mountains at Mardi Base Camp.
Allowing enough rest days with short walks for some days, we take time for practice and preparation for the classic climb on top Mardi Himal. The grade taken from French and Swiss Alpine Climbing for climbing Mardi Himal is F which means ‘Facial Easy’. That means a peak of less technical effort, but however this climb leads to strenuous climb on ice-rocks and snow to reach on top of Mardi Himal.
After a great effort and skill required to reach the apex, we enjoy fantastic panorama of beautiful high Himalayas. The view includes whole Annapurna range with Dhaulagiri and Manaslu towards west and east of Mardi Himal.
