About Mardi Himal Trekking

Mardi Himal lies to the east of Annapurna Base Camp, underneath the glorious Machhapuchhre. The highest elevation of this trekking route is 4500 meters at the Mardi Himal Base Camp from where one can see the breathtaking views of Annapurna range and Hiunchuli. The trail also dives into rhododendron forests with splendid views of the mountains throughout. The blend of different landscapes from cattle grazing fields to snowcapped mountains, the warmth of locals residing in patches and the experience of nature’s wilderness are some major attributes of this off beaten trail. This trek of moderate difficulty is suited for everyone needing a short and quick escape to rejuvenate themselves.

Trekking in Nepal always brings out exciting opportunities for trekkers who seek to relish in the scenic beauty of remote places. Located in the east of Nepal’s most renowned trail, Annapurna Base Camp trek, Mardi Himal (5587m) sits firmly underneath the beautiful Mt. Machhapuchhre (6993m). Mardi Himal trek is a newly opened trek in the Annapurna region and is a remote trek with no tea houses, en route. Following the shadow trail of Mardi Himal, the trekkers will get to enjoy the mesmerizing view of the Annapurna range and Hiunchuli (6441m) from Mardi Himal Base Camp (4500m).

The short trek Route map  to Mardi Himal Base Camp starts as you leave Kathmandu for the lake city of Pokhara. You trek along numbers of camps following a remote and narrow trail to reach the base camp of the stunning 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, yak grazing in the pasturelands, glacial valleys, and the panorama of 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 mostly camp as there are no teahouses on the trail; however, in the more accessible places, the trekkers will stay the night in a home-stay or a hotel.

    When I thought of going to Nepal for trekking, I started out by writing to Index Adventure to enquire about a trip to Nepal. A friend had suggested me the name. I had only a few days, around ten, and wanted to visit Nepal. I contacted Index Adventure and they helped me plan my trip. Mardi Himal trek was wonderful. The views of Annapurna, Mardi Himal and Machapuchhre were awesome. I recommend Index Adventure to everyone. They are better than good.

    We are a couple from Denmark. The amazing landscape of the Himalayas had attracted our attention since long. This year we decided. But, the problem was what trek to choose given the time and budget constraints as well as the altitude concerns we had. After consulting a few tour operators, we came across Index Adventure and talked to Kesab. It didn't take us long to realize that this was the company and Keshab the man. Keshab's genuine concern for other fellow travelers and their needs reflected in the way he helped us plan a trip ideal to our circumstances, proving to us that his was not yet another business house after money alone. Our first experience in the Himalayas mattered to him.

    We went to Nepal in April this year to celebrate our anniversary. We took the service of Index Adventure as our tour operator. We have to admit that Keshab and his team were not only professional but also friendly and caring. With the help of their expertise, we had planned a two-week trip that included a tour of Kathmandu and Pokhara and a trek to the base camp of Mardi Himal. Everything went as planned. Our guide, …, is a person whose knowledge of the area can be trusted. Accommodation and food were as briefed to us at the planning stage. All in all, we were more than happy from the services of the whole Index Adventure family.
