Mardi Himal Trekking / Trek is a relatively short trek to one of the spectacular destinations of Annapurna region. The ultimate reward is the foot of Mardi Himal known as the Mardi Himal Base camp (4500m). The whole journey discloses the magnificent side of Machhapuchre (Fishtail), Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Hiunchuli and many other snow capped giants.

The route of Mardi Himal base camp is growing its popularity in the recent days as the trail is new compared to the other destinations in the region. Trekking starts from the subtropical lush forest hosting the perennial rivers and waterfalls and goes all the way to high rugged mountain trails. The trail is pristine and the place provides the experience of nature in its original form, so the journey can be considered as the sweet escape into the nature. From the base camp, the sunrise and sunset view cutting through the majestic mountains is absolutely astonishing.

There are various trails to start with, but all them ultimately meeting at the “Bamboo Camp”. From there walk through the steep trails takes us all the way to the low camp. We stay in the teahouses and head towards the High camp walking through the open and rugged trail. Mardi Himal Base camp is the ultimate destination up from there. Camping our night in the Base Camp or the High Camp we decent through Sidhing-Lawang trail to reach the beautiful city of Pokhara.

Go for a short trek like Ghorepani Poonhill Trekking, Mustang Trekking, etc.
