Annapurna Region Trek

Mardi Himal trek

  • Duration: 13 days
  • Based on Client Reviews

Mardi Himal is situated at the heart of central Nepal in Annapurna range; it can be reached from the city of Pokhara, situated at 850m and 200km from Kathmandu. The trip takes you through thick rhododendron forests on an unspoiled terrain up to 4800m, within few days walk, on a ridge running down from Machhapuchhare Peak (6992m). This trip can be done by who has a few holidays, because it is very short.

Back from Mardi Base camp, the itinerary goes down back into the Pokhara valley through dense forests with a fantastic landscape, and villages inhabited by Gurung, Tamang and Brahmins. This is an easily accessible wilderness trek, appropriated for an average trekker, and it is a still remote and unfrequented area, so we could do it in camping in tents, in an autonomous way.
