Mardi Himal trek


Fantastic Mardi Himal Trek is located east of one of the most legendary trekking destination of Nepal, the Annapurna Base Camp trek. Mardi Himal trek is an unseen gem yet. Few trekkers make their way to the Mardi Himal Base Camp positioned at the base of Mardi Himal and the Annapurna region´s most iconic mountain, Machapuchhre, lirerally meaning "Fish tail". The trail goes along small winding paths, through enchanted rhododendron forests until you climb out of the forest at an elevation around 3,300 meters. The landscape changes quite abruptly into a rugged high mountain landscape, with amazing views of Mardi Himal, Machapuchre, Annapurna South and Hiunchuli.

From High Camp (3580 m; some maps incorrectly mention 3900 m) you can climb up to Mardi Himal Base Camp in about 3 - 4 hours, which offers spectacular close up views of the entire Annapurna Range. There are some simple but cozy guesthouses and homestays along the entire route.
