trip Overview

Mardi Himal Trek is a short and easy-to-travel route, which is getting popular day by day. It is located in the Annapurna region. For people who love to travel in a peaceful place then this could be the perfect trek for them. It also provide you a great view of Mt. Annapurna, Mt.Machhapuchhre, Mt. Hiunchuli, and many more. You can find simple guesthouse and homestay along the entire route to Mardi.

Mardi Himal Trek starts from Pokhara with a scenic drive to Phedi. The trek follow through the charming villages, terraces, landscape, wildlife, dense forest, and Spectacular Mountain Views. It  is one of the less crowded  trek compare to others.  Mostly, we walk through the jungle watching beautiful scenario of Himalayan range. When we reach Middle Camp we feel like we have  reached  a different world because we are above the tree lines and can see many mountain ranges such as Mt Dhaulagiri, Mt. Hiunchuli, Mt. Annapurna I, Annapurna Fang, Mt. Fishtail, Machhapuchhre, and many more. Mardi Base Camp is the highest point on this trek and provide us great scenario of these mountain.

From High Camp, you could have a sunrise view in the early morning and many highest mountains. On the way back to high camp sometimes we can see Daphne (National Bird of Nepal) as well as other rare wildlife. After the low camp, we have to walk steep down to the siding. After siding, the trail is easy because there is road from where we can drive to Pokhara.  Every year Nepal Dream Path organize treks on Mardi and everyone is satisfied with this trek. It is a long rising ridge from the southwesterly lower slope of Mount Fishtail and its summit is at 5,580m.
