Mardi Himal Short Trek

Durtation: 6 Days

Price: US 375 All Inclusive

Mardi Himal has been well known to those who love the outdoors and like to camp among the elements. A limited number of tea houses have been established throughout the trail that allows trekkers to have a comfy warm resting place and can enjoy well-prepared meals without having to cook for themselves.

These 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.

This short trek package is designed for those trekkers having limited time who want to explore the least explored Mardi Himal Base Camp plus want to have some taste of the Annapurna region.

Mardi Himal (peak) 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 of Pokhara and to the southernmost part of the Annapurna mountain range.

There are plenty of rhododendron and bamboo forests on the trail and the surrounding valleys. The route gives you the best view of Mt. Machhapuchhre and stupendous Mt. Annapurna.

Trek Route

Our trek starts from Pokhara to Pitam Deurali where you take a rest overnight. On the second day, you trek to low camp, then to Mardi high camp and base camp on the 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.
