Escape the crowds and experience the untamed beauty of the Mardi Himal Trek in Nepal. Nestled near Pokhara, this off-the-beaten-path adventure promises serenity and awe-inspiring vistas unlike any other.

Your journey begins in the foothills, where a private drive takes you to the start of the Mardi Himal trek. From here the trek starts with scenic ascent through lush forests of oak and rhododendron. As you climb, the majestic Annapurna range gradually reveals itself, culminating in stunning 360-degree views from Middle Camp.

The trail transitions to a grassy ridge, leading you towards High Camp. Here, iconic peaks like Machapuchre (Fishtail) and Annapurna South stand tall, their grandeur inspiring awe.

With a final climb, you will reach your highest point of the trek. Here, at Mardi Himal base camp panoramic vistas reward your efforts. Gaze upon the breathtaking scenery, including a glimpse into the famed Annapurna Base Camp.

Descend through charming villages, soaking in the local culture and savouring the tranquillity of the Himalayas. The Mardi Himal trek ends at Lumre, where a scenic drive will take you back to Pokhara.
