Trip highlights

Mardi Himal Trek attracts trekkers from around the world who wish to explore the quieter trails in the Annapurna region. In comparison to other busy trails in the Annapurna region, the trails in this trek are a delight to anyone who loves to travel in a completely peaceful environment. The trek starts at Phedi, a few hours’ drives from Pokhara and leads to Mardi Himal High Camp while crossing Mardi Himal Base Camp.

Further, the main highlight of the trek is ascending to the upper viewpoint (4250 m) from the High Camp for the best sightseeing of mountains in Annapurna range. The breathtaking panoramic views of mountains Annapurna, Machhapuchhre (Fishtail), Hiuchuli and of course Mardi make any trekker’s journey a blissful one. The trails to the base camp of Mardi Himal make up a small circuit to allow the trekkers in taking the new trail from base camp, thus, without having to return back the same trail.

It is an ideal trekking destination for travelers with limited vacation time and looking to closely explore the Himalayas. The trek along with the green forests, beautiful villages, mountain landscapes and stays at teahouse.

Had done some treks before but this Mardi Himal trek wins my heart. Short trek but super scenic of Annapurna region, Pokhara valley, and many hill stations. I had a knowledgeable guide, Mr.Pradip Malla and his well-organized accommodation, food, transportation services were not comparable like before. All the views were amazing and you could see the same fishtail from a different angle. I would strongly recommend this trek for short visit travelers and of-curse GNT to organize it with a knowledgeable guide. Thank you, Rabin, for organizing this amazing trek...your team.
