Mardi Himal is a mountain peak, a hidden gem located in the Kaski district of the Annapurna region of Nepal, standing just beneath the well-known Machhapuchhre peak (fishtail mountain) at a height of 5,587 meters above sea level.
The base camp offers panoramic vistas of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges, creating a serene ambiance.
A relatively new trekking trail, the Mardi Himal Base Camp trek is a fifteen-day trek to the Mardi Himal base camp at an altitude of 4,500 metres which provides panoramic views of not only the Mardi Himal but also the widely known Annapurna South, Machhapuchhre and Hiunchuli.
The Mardi Himal Base Camp trail is just off the main trails of the Annapurna Base Camp, and for trekkers looking for a quieter, peaceful, relatively unexplored and easy trekking experience, the road less travelled of the Mardi Himal Base Camp is the perfect alternative.
The trail passes through dense rhododendron forests and passing through Gurung and Magar villages, where travellers can experience local hospitality, traditions, and cuisine.
The best seasons for this trek are spring and autumn, known for clear skies, mild temperatures, and vibrant natural surroundings, offering a unique and unforgettable Himalayan adventure.
