Mardi Himal Trek Overview

Mardi Himal Base Camp is a newly opened trek, which means you get the advantage of spectacular views of the Annapurna range without the crowds. Over five days you will walk through rhododendron forests, and along grassy ridges covered in rolling clouds and wildflowers. Along the trail you will meet yaks, goats and buffalo. As the trail winds around, the awesome Machhapuchare (Fishtail Mountain) sporadically comes into sight. Teahouses are situated along the trail, offering basic accommodation with superb views and a great place to rest and eat after a hard day’s trekking. This trek requires moderate fitness, as each day involves 3-6 hours walking, sometimes with steep ascents. From the Mardi Himal Base Camp and the Viewpoint, a range of snowcapped mountains come into sight, which is magnificent to behold. The return trail follows bubbling brooks through tranquil forests then provides wonderful views of lush valleys and rice fields, before winding through a local village where smiling children greet passersby.
