Mardi Himal Trek

Would you like to go on your first trekking adventure? It's going to be a whole new experience and you may not want to do a full-fledged trek. If that’s the case, we recommend you the unexplored gem in the Annapurna region, the Mardi Himal. A perfect pick for those who wouldn’t want to undergo a demanding and grueling trek and yet would like to traverse through the untraversed. You will be rewarded with outstanding views without grinding too much. This unexplored gem doesn’t welcome many trekkers unlike other trekking hotspots and hence, you will not have to encounter crowds of trekkers.

Like many other treks, our trek also commences from the vibrant Lake city of Pokhara. With a short drive to Phedi, we begin our trek. The trek bestows a glimpse of the beauty that Nepal possesses with the exquisite bouquet of rhododendron trees, aesthetically pleasing terrace farmlands, crystal clear water springs, lush green hills and of course the enchanting panorama of the Himalayas. Walking through ridges and villages with the friendliest locals ever, you will experience something that you’ve never been through. A day in the life of the locals by spending a night at the primitive style mud houses will be something quite interesting. The main highlight of our trip will definitely be gazing and inspecting the snow-capped wonders that are mountains like the Annapurna and Machhapuchhre. Another thing not very astonishing but definitely to be looked out for is the way the sun rises, kissing and lighting up the hills and mountains.

Speaking of the best seasons to take this trek, it is during the autumn and spring when the weather is moderate. So what are you waiting for? Come join Destination Ultimate and explore so much more at the Mardi Himal trek!

    Full service trekking!

    Rating:

    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!
