Mardi Himal Trek

Mardi Himal Trek is a pristine yet short and easy trek in the Annapurna region of Nepal Himalaya.

Mardi Himal situated just east of one of the most popular treks of Nepal. Annapurna Base Camp trek, the Mardi Himal trek is a hidden gem. Few trekkers make their way to the Mardi Himal Base Camp spectacularly situated at the base of Mardi Himal and the impressive Machapuchhre (Fishtail). This trail goes along with small winding paths, through magical rhododendron forests until you climb out of the forest at elevation around 3,300m.

The landscape changes quite abruptly into a rugged high mountain landscape, with amazing views of Mardi Himal, Machapuchre, Annapurna South and Hiunchuli. From High Camp, you can climb up to Mardi Himal Base Camp in about 3-4 hours, which offers spectacular close up views of the entire Annapurna Range. There are simple guesthouses and homestays along the entire route.
