Mardi Himal trek is one of those out-of-the-way gems when it comes to trekking in the Annapurna region. Located to the south of one of the most popular trekking routes in the world, Annapurna Base Camp, the trail to Mardi Himal has so far been ventured by only a handful of trekkers.

The major highlights of this trek undoubtedly is Mardi Himal Base Camp, where you will reach after hiking through traditional Nepali villages while enjoying scenic landscape and stunning views of Annapurna South, Himchuli and Machhapuchhare mountains.

The journey begins with a drive to Pokhara from Kathmandu by bus on Day 1. You will reach Australian Base Camp, a popular viewpoint among travelers, on the second day. Your journey to the base camp of Mardi Himal continues via Forest Camp and High Camp. The return journey takes you to Siding, a picturesque Gurung village, where you will stop for lunch.

This trek is the perfect option for travelers who want to avoid the overcrowded Annapurna Base Camp and Poon Hill trails without having to give up on amazing scenery. We have rated this trek easy to moderate and consider it a great option for beginners. The maximum altitude during this trek 4,500 metres at Mardi Himal Base Camp.

“Awe inspiring trek in the Annapurna range
From the beginning, our experience with the Ace staff was wonderful. They were very responsive to all of our questions in the planning stage and provided quick feedback and clear information. Many in our group also had Ace arrange additional day trips to enhance our Nepal trip. These were excellent.

The gear they provided was clean and the right warmth for the mountain conditions.

On the trek, Ram, Sujan and our porters were amazing. In addition to handling the logistics, meals and hauling our duffel bags up the mountain, they shared their joy of the mountains and the culture of Nepal with us. With 11 people, Ram and Sujan were attentive to our safety and how everyone was doing with the hike and the altitude. It was clear that their goal was to make our Trek a once in a lifetime dream trip. They were flexible so ensure each of us got the experience we wanted. I feel like I made some new friends along with wonderful memories of the spectacular Himalayas.”
