About Trip

The Mardi Himal trek is a relatively new and less-traveled route in the Annapurna region of Nepal, offering stunning views of the Himalayan peaks and a peaceful trekking experience.  Located to the east of the Annapurna Base Camp trek, Mardi Himal offers a quieter alternative with equally spectacular views of peaks like Machapuchare (Fishtail), Annapurna South, and Hiunchuli.

The trek takes you through diverse landscapes, including lush forests of rhododendron and oak, alpine meadows, and rocky terrain. The views along the trail are breathtaking, especially from High Camp and Mardi Himal Base Camp.

The highest point of the trek is Mardi Himal Base Camp at 4,500 meters (14,764 feet). This elevation provides a challenging but manageable trekking experience, suitable for trekkers looking to explore higher altitudes without the crowds of more popular routes.

Along the way, you'll pass through traditional Gurung and Magar villages, where you can experience local hospitality and learn about the unique culture and lifestyle of the Himalayan communities.
