Mardi Himal Trek is ideal for travelers who want to spend time in pristine nature in the Annapurna region of Nepal. Unlike other popular Annapurna region treks like Annapurna Base Camp Trek, in this trek you hike a much less traveled route, which provides a sense of wild remoteness.Mardi Himal Trek offers beautiful views of valleys, gorges, landscapes, and stunning views of Mt. Mardi (5,553 m), along with Mt. Annapurna (8,091 m), Mt. Machhapuchhre (6,997  m), and Mt. Putha Hiunchuli (7246 m), make your journey a truly memorable one.

Mardi Himal Trek starts from Phedi which is at 1 hour driving distace from Pokhara. En-route you willl passs through deep, dense forests and the high alpine plains, along with the stunning Annapurna range, offer some great opportunities for exploration. At high camp (3600  m), there are tremendous views of Annapurna South and Mt. Hiunchuli (7246 m). Marvel at the huge cliffs and hanging glaciers fed by the snowy flanks of Machhapuchhre (6,997 m). On the way, we pass through traditional Gurung villages full of warm and welcoming people, which offers the chance to experience the lifestyle, traditions, and cultures of the Gurung. The trail is short but can be difficult and slippery at times until you reach Mardi Himal Base Camp (4,120 m) and then on to Mardi Himal West (4500 m). The spectacular views of Mardi Himal and the Annapurna range from up close are astounding.
