Mardi Himal Trekking - Essential Information

Mardi Himal Trekking trail is also referred to as an eco-tourism trail the reason is, that during our trekking period we pass through a beautiful forest of rhododendron, bamboo, and other vegetation.

This trek is the perfect combination of the immaculate views of mountains, Scenic valleys, and a mixture of different local cultures. This trek lets you walk on the peace cause it’s the only less visited area in the Annapurna region but it offers more. In the past, only camping is possible but in recent years, there are enough hotels and lodges for the trek.

Mardi Himal Trekking Route

The trek starts at Dhampus after an hour of driving from Pokhara. There is a trail through the jungle, at first up then rolling on the top of a ridge, there is a section just over halfway where the trail drops steeply and then slowly gains height and the edge and into Forest Camp (2600m).

The trail is primarily quite steep leaving Forest Camp but soon gets less sheer as you again get upon the ridge. The trail leaves Low Camp again in the jungle, but the trees soon start to get smaller, and after about one-hour trekking broke out of the jungle and onto the open ridge with mighty views of Machhapuchhre ahead and Annapurna South.

Continuing trekking along the ridge for another few hours to Mardi Himal Base Camp (4500m) and returning to High Camp makes a long day but there is also a viewpoint about half way for imaging view.

Afterwards we return all the way down to low camp. When we arrive at Siding we will descend back to Pokahra by jeep.
