highlights
  • Newly promoted fresh trekking route - study the local culture and lifestyles of villagers.
  • Less touristy and authentic nature, great number of flora and fauna, birds and orchids.
  • Extremely close views of snow capped peaks - Machhepuchhre, Annapurna I etc.
The name of the Mardi Himal is derived from the mark of the long mounting edge and its peak that constructs the south-western lower incline of Mt Machhapuchhre, the well-known triangular skyline visible from the Phewa Lake located in Pokhara.

This is an out-of-the-ordinary-trek in Nepal. The open terrain bestowing immense chance to travel around long-established villages, incredible landscape, different cultures, stunning views of silvery peaks and captivating views of rivers and striking valley are some of the highlights of this trek.

Located to the east of one of the famous treks of Nepal, the Annapurna Base Camp trek, the Mardi Himal trek is a out of sight but a valued trek. Very few trekkers visit the Mardi Himal Base Camp, fabulously positioned at the foot of Mardi Himal and the striking Machhapuchhre.

The trail goes through delightful rhododendron woods, until you ascend out of the woods at an elevation of 3300m. The setting changes quite unexpectedly into a rough high peak landscape, with astonishing views of Mardi Himal, Annapurna South, Machhapuchhre and Hiunchuli. The High Camp is set at an elevation of 3580 m and bestows amazing close up vistas of the whole Annapurna Range.

This moderate and strenuous 08 days tea house style trek is thought to be perfect for those adventure fanatics who have very fixed schedule and is also favored by the elderly who have the desire to go up to higher elevations.

“Amazing trek through ever changing terrain: from dense forest, over grassy plains to steep rocky slopes. Length is ideal, 5 to 6 days. It is one of the less touristy treks, we had the feeling regularly we were out there on our own. Amazing views on the top at Mardi Himal Base Camp. Possible to do this trek in 4-5 days, depending on altitude sickness and physical condition.”

“Amazing trekking through ever changing terrain: from dense forest, over grassy plains, to steep rocky slopes. Ideal length of 5 to 6 days, although depending on altitude sickness and physical condition it can be shortened 1-2 days. Final climb to base camp is challenging but offers an amazing sunrise, as we started 4AM from high camp.”
