Mardi Himal Trek - A Buried Gem of Nepal

Positioned just east of ABC trek, the Mardi Himal trek is a buried gem. A small number of hikers make their way to Mardi Himal Base Camp which is situated conveniently at the base of Mardi Himal & the picturesque Machapuchhre. The trekking route goes along tiny winding trails, via enthralling rhododendron woodlands until you ascend out of the woodland at a height about 3,300 meters. The scenery transforms rather unexpectedly into an uneven high-mountain terrain, with spectacular sights of Machapuchre, Mardi Himal, Hiunchuli and Annapurna South. Let’s talk about some of the most interesting facts about Mardi Himal trek.

The highlights of the entire trek include Machhapuchhre (also known as Fishtail, (6,993 m) Annapurna South (7,010 m), and Mount Hiunchuli (6,441 m).
