“This is the first day of the Mardi Himal Base Camp Trek.”— Missouri Hiker
Stop at Pothana for lunch and find the odd government menu that will be the same for the entire trek upwards. Go vegetarian, since electricity for refrigeration up here is dodgy.
Continue through the forest until you get to Pitam Deurali, which is a good spot to spend the night. Make sure to bring your sleeping bag, as linens are rarely washed and often covered in a layer of dust.
