The off beaten path leads us through the pine, evergreen shrub juniper and the dense rhododendron forest with turbulent rivers making the delightful sound.  About 2-8 hours walk will take you to Low Camp (2,990 m) from Australian base Camp and continuous 6-7 hours day hike through the old stone-built villages, you will finally step at the Mardi Himal Base Camp at 4,500 m. It is a five-day long journey.
