The Mardi Himal Trek Package is a short and jovial hiking trip in the Annapurna region of Nepal. The Mardi region exhibits some marvelous forms of Mother Nature in a pristine and lively environment.

The highest point on the trek is the Base Camp, at an altitude of 4500 m. Before, the trail used to be a way for the shepherds to take their sheep and goats for grazing.

Later in 2012, the route to Mardi Himal was accessible to everyone. Only a few trekking groups used to go there with their tents and catering teams. Now, you can find new teahouses built on the way. Thus, the number of trekkers keeps rising each year.

The Mardi Himal Trek Package is one of the most popular short hiking tour packages in Nepal and is one of the easiest and shortest routes. But in terms of natural glory, Mardi Himal is nothing less than any other trek in the Annapurna region.

Besides, the trekking courses are unspoiled and full of surprises along the way. As the Mardi Himal trekking trails go around the Mardi Himal, we don’t need to repeat the same route on the whole trekking journey.

These days, the Mardi Himal Trek Package has become the best alternative to the Ghorepani Poonhill Trek. Unlike the Poonhill Trek, the route to Mardi Himal is less crowded, with a few recently opened accommodation sites on the way.

In the peak trekking seasons, Poonhill Trek is one of the most frequented trails that is too crowded with tourists. Thus, many people opt out of the Mardi Trip to glimpse the marvelous Mt. Machhapuchhre, along with other mountains in the Annapurna range.

Mardi Trekking in Nepal’s Rich Ecosystem

The Mardi Himal Trek route starts in the foothills of Annapurna. The hike takes you along the prominent ridges to Mardi Himal, from where one can witness some fantastic views of mountains like Annapurna Himal, Dhaulagiri Himal, Manaslu Himal, and Dhaulagiri Himal, along with other adjacent peaks in the region.

It is an excellent way to experience diverse cultures and geography. Just like the family hike in Annapurna or the Annapurna Panorama Trip, a trek to Mardi can also be an excellent way to celebrate vacation with your family.

The trail traverses from lush lowland to alpine mountains in just a few days, which is a distinct feature of this Mardi Himal Trek Package. We pass through verdant valleys, lush hills, forests, and farmlands on the way to high ridges that lie above the tree line area. The route from Low Camp to High Camp is full of short bushes. It is almost barren and wild, with strong winds blowing each afternoon.

The Cultural Significance of the Mardi Himal Trek Package

On the way, we pass various ethnic villages inhabited by people from different ethnic groups. It’s truly an insightful phenomenon to interact with locals and get to know more about their cultures, customs, festivals, lifestyles, and practices.

The people are very cheerful, and one can receive the best hospitality from locals on the route. You will feel so happy and at home. On the way, one can also notice a distinct blend of Buddhism and religion. The colorful prayer flags, mani walls, and stupas on the road add a positive and vibrant aura to your journey.

The Best season for a Mardi Himal Trek in 2023

The best seasons for trekking to Mardi Himal in 2023 are during the seasons when the atmosphere is dry and visibility is clear. So, the best times in 2023 are spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). Similarly, it might be difficult to trek during the monsoon and winter seasons. The trail is very slippery in the monsoon, and in the winter it freezes out there.

Tidy Himalaya conducts the Mardi Himal Trek package regularly. If you want to join our group at Mardi Himal for 2023, please let us know.

When you arrive in Kathmandu, one of our airport representatives will pick you up and take you to your hotel. Then you will have trip briefing. Overnight at hotel

You will be picked up by your guide to initiate the journey. We will then make our way to the airport where we’ll catch a flight to Pokhara. As we reach Pokhara, you will be astonished by the mountains up close. We’ll drive towards Kande and initiate our trek to Pothana. Overnight at Guesthouse, breakfast, lunch, and dinner included.

On this fresh day, we start from Pothana as we trek to Pitam Deurali which leads through the quiet trail of oak, maple, rhododendron and hemlock forests. If lucky, we can get glimpses of the diverse wildlife like leopards, deer, monkeys, various species of birds and others. We’ll reach Forest Camp in the afternoon. Overnight at Guesthouse, breakfast, lunch, and dinner included.

The trail continues from Forest Camp to High Camp through the dense forests. Ascending through the trails, we get to see rhododendrons and trees covered in moss and lichen. We’ll have lunch at Low Camp and enjoy the view of Mr. Machhapuchhre. Ascending from the Low Camp, the trail takes us west towards the amazing views of Annapurna South and Hiunchuli Himal. We’ll continue on the Mardi Himal ridge where we’ll see the beautiful rhododendron bushes. We might also see the colorful Danphe along the trail.

Then we’ll have breakfast and begin to climb the Mardi Himal View Point at 4500m. This is one of the challenging days as we walk on the narrow and rocky trails. However, the view at the end of the trek makes all the hard work worth it. Mardi Himal is a scared Himalaya of Nepal. No one has ever climbed the summit because of its sacred value. To date, it remains unclimbed. The major highlight of this day is watching Nepal’s national bird Lophophorus. Overnight at Guesthouse, breakfast, lunch, and dinner included.
