Mardi Himal Trek

Duration: 2 Nights 3 Days Based on 4 Reviews

A relatively new route, Mardi Himal Trek provides a great alternative to Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek. Mardi Himal is located in the eastern section of Annapurna Himalayan Range. The glory of the Mardi Himal area is overshadowed by commercial Poon hill and Annapurna Base Camp trekking routes which is why the Mardi Himal area is least visited. Mardi Himal Trek is a perfect cultural trek in the Annapurna region. The local Gurung ethnics have been able to preserve their primitive culture and traditions. The route continues through blooming rhododendron forest and offers impeccable views of Mardi, Fishtail, Annapurna, Hiunchuli and other peaks and mountains.

Manikang Nepal Treks and Adventure operates 11-days Mardi Himal Trek itinerary. The trail continues through local villages providing you with ample opportunity to interact with locals. Mardi Himal trekking can be joined by people of normal physical fitness as no previous trekking experience is required. Thus, this is the perfect family trekking package in Annapurna. After enjoying Kathmandu Sightseeing Tour, we will drive to Pokhara. Trekking for Mardi Himal begins from Kande. The trail continues through the forest area that is perfect for bird watching. We will hike up to Upper View Point for close-up views of mountains and follow a different route through the famous Gurung village of Landruk. Trek ends at Nayapul from where we will drive back to Kathmandu via Pokhara. Accommodation is available in lodges and teahouse.
