OVERVIEW

The Mardi Himal trek is a newly opened route and hence it is still a hidden treasure in the Annapurna region. The trek is an ideal choice for those of us who are looking to avoid the crowd without compromising on the incredible view of the Himalayas in this region.

Mardi Himal trek offers an amazing view of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchre and Manaslu ranges. Another benefit about this trekking route is that the trail makes a small circuit up to the base camp of Mardi Himal so that we don’t have to trek back over the same terrain.
