MARDI HIMAL TREK

TO AND FROM : KATHMANDU

10 NIGHTS/11 DAYS

OVERVIEW :

Mardi Himal is a 5,587 peak beneath the much more prominent Machapuchare in the Annapurna region of Nepal, from which it is separated by a 5,200m. It is situated just east of one of the most popular treks of Nepal, the Annapurna Base Camp trek, the Mardi Himal trek is a hidden gem. Few trekkers make their way to the Mardi Himal Base Camp spectacularly situated at the base of Mardi Himal and the impressive Machapuchhre.

The trail goes along small winding paths, through magical rhododendron forests until you climb out of the forest at an elevation around 3,300 m. The landscape changes quite abruptly into a rugged high mountain landscape, with amazing views of Mardi Himal, Machapuchre, Annapurna South and Hiunchuli.
