Mardi Himal trek is a newly introduced,  a very popular trekking route in the Annapurna Region. The name of Mardi Himal trek is derived from  Mardi Himal mountain which lies east of the Modi Khola, just opposite to the Ghorepani Poon Hill TrekTrekking route to Mardi Himal offers a pristine natural beauty, making it one of the best cultural treks in Nepal. So, if you like to explore this off-beaten tract, Mardi Himal trek will be the best option for you. The main highlight of Mardi Himal trek is that you will see wonderful views of Annapurna south, Hinchuli, Machhapuchre, and Mardi Himal, experience local culture and wildlife.

It is quite interesting to know about this hot spot. Most of the tourists consider Mardi Himal and Machhapuchre Himal is the same mountain, as they find quite difficult to identify Mardi Himal. From a far distance, Mardi Himal looks attached with the Machhapuchre. But once trekkers arrive in High camp and see Mardi Himal,   it looks surprisingly detached from Machhapuchre. While trekking along the route, one can see the beautiful glimpse of Tadapani, Ghandruk and Chhomrong if weather permits.

  1. Panorama Mardi himal Trek With Exciting Himalaya
    sherya mist22nd April, 2019

    I traveled to Nepal with my friends on a 6-day trek(Mardi Himal) with exciting Himalaya and had an amazing experience from the moment we were met happily at the airport to transfer us to Kathmandu. We spent a few days in the Kathmandu and Pokhara city to get acclimated to the time zone and to see the sights... Our 6-day trek was led by our guide sujan and porter Krishna, who were made the experience top notch. They couldn’t have gone out of their way anymore to make our journey the best it could be and succeeded in every way. And the view was really awesome and spectacular especially holy mountain fishtail(machhapuchre) and Annapurna Himalaya range. We will not forget this trip and would recommend the EXCITING HIMALAYA to anyone who wants an excellent experience!
