Mardi Himal Trek – 10 Days

9 Days

Fantastic Mardi Himal Trek is located just east of one of the most legendary trekking destination of Nepal. Mardi Himal Trek can be one of the magnificent treks for any trekkers. The Mardi Himal Trek is an ideal choice for those of us who are looking for an ‘off the beaten path’ trekking experience in the quieter parts of the Annapurna region of Nepal. It is the lowest and perhaps the least visited of the trekking peaks in Nepal. Situated just east of one of the most popular treks of Nepal, the 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 Machhapuchhre. The landscape changes quite abruptly into a rugged high mountain landscape, with amazing views of Mardi Himal, Machapuchare, Annapurna South and Hiunchuli.

Mardi Himal Trek blesses hikers with an overwhelming adventure. You will love the attractive views of the snow-capped peaks of the Annapurna region. Passing through the green hills, you will have the most beautiful memories. The natural beauty of the landscapes is immensely dispersed throughout the region. Going through the traditional villages of Gurung and witnessing the Buddhist culture is truly wonderful. The warm hospitality of the villagers of villages such as Kande, Pothana, Siding, Deurali, etc. is truly remarkable. This wonderful trip takes you to 4,500 meters above sea level to display the wonderful landscapes. Low Camp, Forest Camp, High Camp and Mardi Himal Base Camp are amazing places.
