Mardi Himal Trek is located in Annapurna conservation area. It is named after a small mountain which goes by the name of well, Mardi Himal. This mountain is mountain ridges of mount Machhapuchhre and is 5587 m high to walk through bamboo and rhododendron forest. The route is of medium difficulty and the views are simply spectacular. The route can be altered in many ways. This trail can be completed within twelve days.
Mardi Himal Base Camp Trek offers imaging view of Annapurna, Dhauligiri, Machhapuchre lamjung Himal. Mardi Base Camp is 4500 meters above sea level. Mardi trekking starts from Pokhara drive to Kande and trek to Potana or Deurali and continues trek to Forest camp, low camp, back from mardi base camp is not same trails, its go to Siding or Lwang village, Lumure and drive back to Pokhara.
Mardi Himal Trek is mainly a more beautiful view of Annapurna area. It is just located just east of most famous trekking destination of Annapurna region- newly opened tea house trails trekking, Mardi Himal trek is the best destination to avoid the crowded of Annapurna base camp, Ghorepani–Poon Hill and Annapurna Circuit. Mardi Himal Trek is called hidden treasure trek too. It “officially” opened in 2012 and yet to command large crowds like other trek in the region.
It’s richly diverse trek which takes you through most beautiful forested areas though to rocky mountain terrain and several base camps which may have snow depending on the time.
If you look at the route of Mardi Himal Base camp then you can see that the whole route is a straight trail done on the top of a hill. After reaching Pothana, trekkers never go below the altitude of 2000m. This features of the trek keeps you posted with amazing views of landscape that lack in other ways when you dip into valleys.
Forest filled with rhododendron of red, pink and white is a treat on this trail. This is one of the major attractions of the region and has always added that extra region to trek here. But these flowers only bloom in spring and may not be so much contrasting in other season.
Mount Machhapuchhre is 6993 m high. It is the mountain that has been giving that spectacular touch to the valley of Pokhara since ages the word ‘Machhapuchhre’ in Nepali means ‘fishtail’ which is taken from the shape of the mountain. This mountain can be clearly viewed from base camp.
