Mardi Himal Peak Climbing in Nepal can be a great experience for first-time trekkers and moderately skilled adventurers. It is the legendary trek of Nepal & one of the lesser-known peak but increasingly popular traveled destination of the Annapurna region. 

Across the Himchul valley and with Modi Khola towards its west sits the Mardi Himal Peak. On your way towards the mountain, you would come across a col which separates both the mountains of Mardi Himal and Fishtail. The best thing about this trip is that the destination’s close to the city of Pokhara which itself deserves 2 days to try out most of its adventure sports, cuisines and visit all its major sites. This is probably the shortest trekking/climbing trip you can take in Nepal. The Basecamp is set up at 4100m and once you pass the col and ascend a bit more you would get to see the high camp. The rest of the journey to the summit is a great one along with a 45-degree inclination.

People usually couple this climb with other trips along the Annapurna region to enjoy it is a diverse landscape, meet vibrant people and see wild animals. You may have already heard about the Annapurna Base Camp trail and how magnificent it is. But the Mardi Himal Peak Climb will present you with a heavenly experience. The trail that passes through the forest and then climbs up the elegant mountains will leave you with the most beautiful memory which you will cherish forever. Just try this trek for your inner growth.
