“Discover the hidden gem of Annapurna region and experience a genuine off the beaten path trek in Nepal.”

A trek to Mardi Himal is widely considered to be one of the most exciting off the beaten path trek in Nepal as it is rarely visited by herds of trekkers who divert their way towards the more popular Annapurna Base Camp trek trails. Offering a serene natural environment filled with melodramatic villages and terraced farmlands, trekkers can witness the scenic Himalayan views of Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Annapurna and Mt. Machapuchare in our 12 day Mardi Himal Trek.

Starting your travel experience in Nepal by taking you on a rejuvenating sightseeing tour around the historic and ancient UNESCO World Heritage Sites dispersed inside the Kathmandu valley, trekkers get to enjoy & learn deeply about the culturally vibrant capital city of Nepal. Next, we take a scenic drive towards the stunning Pokhara city which is famous for its serene tranquil views of the pristine Phewa Lake reflecting the towering Himalayan mountains above it. Then we continue forward with our trek and head towards our designated goal of reaching Pothana from Pokhara the following day via a town called Phedi. Pothana is a gorgeous village located on our trekking trail and lies at the elevated height of 1,950 meters above sea level. The major highlight of our Mardi Himal Trek is that it allows trekkers like you to enjoy the less travelled trails of Annapurna region while being accompanied with complimentary scenic mountain vistas. No wonder people who visit this magnificent region call it the “hidden gem of Annapurna region”. With several miniscule ups and downs, trekkers experience a bewildering trek route where the lack of crowds of trekkers make it more enjoyable. Later on, we shall pass through several other village settlements before reaching Mardi Himal Base Camp via Forest Camp and High Camp. From here, you can get an all-encompassing panoramic view of Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Machapuchare (Fishtail) and Mardi Himal which truly can be a sight worth remembering. So, don’t forget to capture these iconic views with your camera while you are up there! As we reach the final phases of our trek, we shall now descend back down from Mardi Himal Base Camp and head down towards Landruk village and finally to Nayapul. After reaching Nayapul, you get on a private vehicle for a drive back to Kathmandu and then conclude your Mardi Himal Trek officially.
