Discover the off-beaten path and hidden gem of Nepal with the Mardi Himal trek. Located near Pokhara, this trek offers a peaceful and serene experience with stunning mountain views. Unlike the other popular Annapurna treks, you can enjoy the beauty of nature without the crowds.
As you begin your journey in the lush oak and rhododendron forests, you’ll come across Pitam Deurali and Forest Camp. With every step, you’ll be treated to breathtaking views of the mighty Annapurna mountain range. However, the real magic happens at Middle Camp, where the Mardi Himal trail unveils its panoramic views. A ridge of grass and isolated bushes leads you to High Camp, where the glistening peaks of Machapuchre and Annapurna South will leave you awestruck.
The highlight of the trek awaits at the Mardi Ridge viewpoint, where you’ll be rewarded with the most stunning scenery and an unforgettable peak into Annapurna Base Camp. After basking in the majesty of the Himalayas, you’ll descend towards Lumre and return to Pokhara with a heart full of memories.
