Trip Overview

The Mardi Himal Trek is a beautiful route recently opened in the Annapurna Region, which ascends through lush rhododendron forest, beautiful valleys and local villages. This trek lies just east of the Annapurna Base Camp Trek, on the ridge west of Macchapuchare and has its final point at the Mardi Himal base camp.

The views from the ridge top are just incredible, and you’ll probably get the most imposing and close-up view of the Fishtail Mountain, Macchapuchare, in the Annapurna Region.

Although the route is gaining popularity, fewer trekkers make their way up along this trail, which is a great advantage if you dislike crowds. The lodges and teahouses are more basic compared to more popular treks.

You can connect this trek to the Annapurna Base Camp Trek if you have more time.

Time spent exploring timeless Kathmandu and relaxing in the lakeside town of Pokhara before and after the trek completes your adventure with insights into Nepali culture and tradition.
