Mardi Himal Trek Itinerary

The Mardi Himal Trek is a delightful short-day expedition near Pokhara, Nepal, leading you to the stunning Mardi Himal which lies beneath the awe-inspiring Mt. Machapuchhre, also known as the fishtail mountain. Although the popularity of the Mardi Himal route has been steadily increasing, it still sees fewer visitors compared to well-known treks like Annapurna Base Camp and Everest Base Camp.

This trek unveils a picturesque path through verdant hills, enchanting oak and rhododendron forests, and valleys embraced by snow-capped peaks. For certain trekkers, it serves as a destination where they can witness the exquisite wonders of nature and find tranquillity, while others view it as a valuable source of exhilarating adventures.

The top highlights of the Mardi Himal Trek include

  • Stunning mountain views of Mt. Machhapuchhre (Fishtail), Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, and Mardi Himal itself.
  • A hidden gem trek with a less crowded experience compared to popular treks in the region.
  • Interactions with friendly Gurung and Magar communities, providing insights into their traditions and way of life.
  • Witnessing the mesmerising sunrise from the high camp, where golden rays illuminate the surrounding peaks, creating a breathtaking spectacle.

Best Time to Visit Mardi Himal Trek

Trekkers can opt for Spring which is another best season for Mardi Himal Trek encompassing the months of March, April, and May.
