9 Days Mardi Himal Trek Overview

An enjoyable short trekking path in Nepal's fascinating Annapurna region. After completing the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek, many hikers in Nepal choose the Mardi Himal Trekking trail. Travel experts from Base Camp Trip have created an intriguing itinerary that combines the best of Annapurna into a single, brief hike up the scenic Mardi peak.

Numerous tourists arrive at the base camp of the planet's tenth-tallest mountain. Imagine being able to see the base camp from a distance. Hello, at the summit of the Mardi Himal Trek, travelers can see the Annapurna Base Camp.

There aren't many people that trek to the high camp of the majestic Machapuchhre and the magnificent Mardi Himal, but interest in this breathtaking path is rising quickly. Anyone looking for a short trip in Nepal that is truly off the beaten path should put this week-long trek on their itinerary because it is less taxing than the journey to the adjacent Annapurna Base Camp but just as beautiful.

Trekking Up Mardi Himal Has Changed

The Mardi Himal Trek was for a very long time only accessible by small traveling factions with makeshift shelters and food sellers. The trail follows well-used shepherd trails since there is still grazing available in the summer.

Since it was officially launched in 2012, the journey has remained unchanged. There are few basic utilities for tea houses. This trek is close to Pokhara, short, isolated, and moderately convenient.

It offers distinctive customs, gorgeous greenery rambles, and mountainous landscapes, but it is also highly diverse. The ascent slows down as it follows the mountain for the most part.

Overview Of The Mardi Trekking Route

At a height of 3850 meters, Mardi Himal High Camp is situated in a picturesque area. The maximum campsite along the way is this one. Machhapuchhre seems to be a mere leap away, while Annapurna South appears to be close enough to catch anyone off guard.

The trek's starting and ending points are located in Pokhara. The trip starts at Phewa Lake's picturesque lakeshore. We suggest that since boating is well-known in Pokhara, we should go towards Kande with stunning views of the trail's snow-capped mountains and eventually reach in Pothana if no one can easily refuse. We'll take the road up to High Camp from Low Camp.

You will reach spectacular mountain scenery with lush green hills and meander through a thick forest with lovely oak and rhododendron trees after three to four days of hiking. It will be an amazing experience to witness the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Mt. Machhapuchhre (Fishtail), and Manaslu highlands from the trail's direction.

The quickest trekking route is the Mardi Himal Trek, which departs from Pokhara and ascends in about 3 days, averaging 4500 meters in altitude. As one of the most popular trekking routes in the Annapurna region, we would thus suggest this journey to all tourists.

Where is the Mardi Himal Trek?

In the tens of thousands of hikers that visit the Annapurna region each year, Mardi Himal Trek receives only 5% as many visitors as the main Annapurna route. The trekking route can be connected with the Annapurna Base Camp or Annapurna Circuit, or it can take a little different path that has fewer tourists and is just as spectacular or even more so.

The Mardi Himal Trek is constantly under the watchful eye of Machhapuchhre; Fish Tail Mountain, one of the massive mountains in the Annapurna Massif. Along the way, there are various rock cairns, lovely teahouses, and numerous stone cottages. Just off the main route to Annapurna Base Camp lies the track for this journey. It is a popular replacement for trekking in the Annapurna areas.

Mardi Trek Is Becoming More Popular

It is debatable whether publicizing these treks is advantageous or not, as Base Camp Trip concentrates on highlighting Nepal's off-the-beaten-path routes. Yes, at some point, many visitors start looking for new, more scenic places to explore and enjoy their travels, but not everyone like spending money in densely inhabited locations because unspoiled beauty is always best and at its purest. Major hiking routes in Nepal are already well-traveled, but road building, upgrading to better facilities, and altering the natural landscape are somehow destroying their charm.

Let Mardi be at its best and trek to Mardi with responsibility as responsible tourism. In contrast to Mardi Himal, few people are aware of the walk and are frequently peaceful and tranquil. Trek Mardi, but don't allow its popularity to alter its unaltered nature.
