Mardi Himal trek is a 5 days short trek to Mardi Himal. It is situated in the east of one of the most popular destinations of Nepal, Annapurna region. Mardi Himal is located beneath the forbidden mountain (Mount Machhapuchhre) of Nepal. The trek starts from Pokhara and ends in Pokhara. The trek provides an overwhelming experience to green hills, snow-capped mountains and lovely forests. The trek takes place with spectacular views of Mardi Himal, Annapurna South, Machhapuchhre and Hiunchuli, through a lovely forest of rhododendrons, rugged high mountain landscape, valleys, beautiful lakes, suspension bridge, wooden bridge, terrace field, river, and waterfall.
The altitude of Mardi Himal raised up to 5587m. And Mardi Himal base camp is at the altitude of 4500m above sea level. This trek was officially opened in 2012 so there are limited teahouses with basic facilities though you won't be disappointed with the amenities of the lodges and teahouses.
This trek, not too far, is relatively easy with an unspoiled trekking route. The trek provides a highly diverse culture of local communities of the route. You will also get an opportunity to know the lifestyle and socio-culture of the Gurung and Magar communities. You can see the picturesque view of sunrise and sunset from Australian Base Camp (2000m) and spend a night in the Australian Base Camp to see the sun rays hit Annapurna mountains in the morning and evening.

Best Time for Mardi Himal Trek
At Mardi Himal, the temperature and weather vary throughout the year with four individual seasons, they are summer, spring, winter, and autumn.
The temperature and weather in this season is perfect for trekking in Mardi. The clear blue sky and a colourful rhododendron add sugar to the trip of Mardi Himal.
Summer is not a good option for trekking in Mardi Himal. Due to dark clouds, heavy and frequent rainfall the view of mountains isn't clear. However, you can see the most beautiful scenic and dirtless views after the heavy downpours if you are lucky enough.
Autumn is the best season to trek in Mardi Himal. The magnificent view of sunrise and sunset on the clear sky is what you don't want to miss in this trek.
The trek in this season means a freezing cold with a dry environment. Tones of snow cover the mountain as well as the trail. So it's a bit difficult to trek in this season.

I love Mardi Himal trek. im really enjoyed this trip with my friends. Destination Unlimited Treks & Expeditions Private Limited really gave very good service. I called it 5 stars service. Tour guide very good and real funny. Every time make us laugh and happy. I love this company. I'm really enjoyed from start until the end of my trip in Nepal.
We received excellent services from airport pick up to accommodations, meals, top notch guides, porters to drop off at airport. Simply piece of mind in a foreign country. Ashok and team went the extra mile for us whenever they can, really impressive. Thank you very much once again from the bottom of my heart! The mountains are calling, I'm definitely coming back with my family. See you soon!
Superb service by Ashok and team. Our Mardi Himal trek was well planned from beginning to end. Destination Unlimited has been around for awhile, so they know exactly what you expect and prepare you for what's coming. Mardi Himal is a less well known trek where you can see Annapurna range and most prominently, Mt Fishtail (Machhapuchhare). So you have a lot less people and can enjoy the nature more closely. Highly recommend it!
