About Trip

Trekking in Nepal always brings out exciting opportunities for trekkers who seek to relish the scenic beauty. Situated in the lap of the Himalayas, Nepal is the home to eight of top ten highest peaks in the world. Though Mardi Himal doesn’t make it to the list of top ten highest peaks in the world, Mardi Himal Trekking has the potential in making the list of most exciting trekking route in the country.

Located in the east of Nepal’s most renowned trek, the Annapurna Base Camp, Mardi Himal sits firmly underneath the beautiful Mt. Machhapuchhre where the trekkers can enjoy the mesmerizing view of the Annapurna range and Hiunchuli. The highest altitude of the trek is marked at 4500m above the sea level which is the base camp of Mardi Himal. From the base camp, the trekkers can relish the beautiful view of Mt. Machhapuchhre tagging along with the Annapurna range which seems to be just a foot far from the trekkers. Along the way, trekkers may come across various other nature’s beauty such as amazing rhododendron forests which can be observed throughout the trekking period, Danphe pheasant composing their beautiful melodies, Dzokpo (yak/cow crossbreeds) grazing in the fields, the glacial valleys, the panorama of the Annapurna range, Mt. Machhapuchhre and the Mardi Himal itself. The trekkers can also get the glimpse of day-to-day struggles faced by local people of that region, and also be familiar with the culture of Gurung, Chemjong, and other localities residing in that region. The trekkers will be spending overnight at hotel, guesthouses, lodges, and homestays depending on the settings of locations.
