When is the best time to do Mardi Trek in general ?

While, the best times to go walking and trekking to Mardi are in the spring, summer(late February – May, June, July) and autumn (late September-Mid December).

Autumn; The best time of year to do Mardi trek is supposedly in the autumn. With dry weather and crisp, clear skies, the mountain views are at their best. Since the summer monsoon, the countryside has been lush and green.
Spring; As the weather warms up in late February and May wide variety of trekking options become available. The gorgeous magnolia and rhododendron will be in bloom, even though the skies may be cloudier than in the fall. If you want to trek in Mardi in the both fall and spring time, you should book well in advance because the popular trails can get crowded during this time and flights fill up fast.
Winter; Generally, winter brings bright, dry days, though the evenings are bitterly cold at altitude and snow. Well-prepared with the right gear and equipment for colder temperatures. Winter can be an excellent time to do Mardi trek because there are fewer tourists.
