Mardi Himal Trek is moderately intense, and is often less traveled (relatively new) hiking trail but offers lot regardless of days required. 

Like all the trails of the Annapurna region, the beautiful trekking trail towards Mardi Himal has allured many travelers with its majestic mountain views and surroundings. The landscapes of this region creates a sight that is truly to behold. No wonder that so many travel enthusiasts flock to this wonderful area with outstanding natural beauty.

The trek is also a cultural retreat as varied ethnic groups of Magars, Brahmins, Tamangs, and Gurungs mainly practicing Buddhism and Hinduism can be observed on the trekking trails. This particular package has a precise 5 days of trek excluding Kathmandu sightseeing, arrival and departure days leading you all the way up to an altitude of 4500 m (Mardi Himal Base Camp).

It is also sometimes regarded as an ‘off beaten trek trial’ as the route was recently opened. Nevertheless, the journey to Mardi provides very mesmerizing views of snow-capped peaks of Annapurna South (7219 m), Annapurna III (8091 m), Machapuchare (6993 m), plus other peaks including lush green forest, scenic landscape and some wilderness around.

An option of camping is also available. The best time to opt-in is Spring and Fall. In these seasons, the blooming rhododendron flowers can make you fall in love with nature.
