Starting point: Mardi Himal High camp (3900 m)
Ending point: Sidhing village (1750 m)
Date: 28th October 2019
Distance covered: 12 Kms
The weather on Day 02 of the Mardi Himal base camp trek was cloudy. I was so happy with my decision of going to the Mardi Himal base camp the previous day.
There are basically two routes to go back from the High camp. The first one is following the same trail till the Low camp (3400 m) and then taking a diversion towards Sidhing village (1750 m) but then you are technically hiking back the same way. The second route is a fairly new one and very few people take this route for descend, the route starts from the High camp (3900 m) itself and goes all the way to Sidhing village (1750 m). By taking this route you can actually do a circuit trek. However, the new route passes through dense forest and it is mandatory to know how to use navigation apps if you are a solo hiker.
