Embark on an adventure through uncharted paths and stunning landscapes on the Mardi Himal Trek, which leads to the Mardi Himal Base Camp at an altitude of 4,500m/14,763ft. This journey will take you through traditional rural villages, lush forests, dramatic high-altitude terrain, and untouched wilderness, all set against the backdrop of towering snow-capped peaks including Annapurna, Machhapuchre (Fishtail), and Hiunchuli.
The Mardi Himal Trek sounds like a great option for those who want to experience the beauty of the Annapurna range but have limited time. This trek offers stunning views of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Machhapuchhre, Gangapurna, Annapurna I, and Mardi Himal. The trek is a week-long and takes you through ancient rhododendron forests before climbing up to the higher altitudes, where you can see the spectacular views of the mountains.
The Mardi Himal Base Camp, situated at the base of Mardi Himal and Machhapuchhre or Fishtail, is a hidden gem that few trekkers visit. From High Camp, you can climb to the Mardi Himal Base Camp in about 3-4 hours, offering close-up views of the entire Annapurna Range. There is also a viewpoint about 2 hours from High Camp, offering amazing views of the mountains.
