4500m Mardi Himal Base camp
Private and comfortable drive/ scenic flight.
Mar-May and Sep-Nov
Mardi Himal has been well known to trekkers who love the outdoors and like to camp among the elements. But only since 2011, tea houses have been established throughout the trail that allows travelers and tourists who like to have a comfy warm resting place and can enjoy well-prepared meals without having to cook for themselves.
This 6 days Mardi Himal Short Trek goes through the lesser taken routes of the Annapurna region. Located towards the east of the Annapurna Base Camp and sits virtually at the base of Mount Fishtail, the captivating wilderness and charming nature will surely be able to etch a permanent mark on your heart.
Mardi Himal Short Trek is designed for those trekkers who want to explore the least explored Mardi Himal Base Camp plus travelers having limited time but still want to have some taste of the Annapurna region.
Mardi Himal is truly a hidden gem standing at 5587 meters. Though it is a mountain peak below 6000 meters, its beauty is eye-catching and mesmerizing. It lies 20 kilometers north to Pokhara and to the southernmost part of the Annapurna mountain range.
There are plenty of rhododendron and bamboo forests on the trail to Mardi Himal and the surrounding valleys. The route gives you the best view of Mt. Machhapuchhre and stupendous Mt. Annapurna.
The trek starts from Pokhara to Pitam Deurali where you take rest overnight. The second day you trek to low camp, then to Mardi high camp and base camp on third and fourth day respectively.
You then trek back to low camp to Sidhing and finally back to Pokhara. The walking distance is shorter in comparison to other trekking routes in Nepal.
There is a limited number of guest houses and tea houses, but you even have an option to stay at a camp.
