Also we get a rare opportunity to observe their unique culture and traditions, along with magnificent views of the Mt. Annapurna Ranges, Dhaulagiri, Mt. Hiunchuli, and Mt. Fishtail (Machhapuchhare). Although the route is less used, this interesting and exotic trail wanders through lush valleys, dense forests, alpine meadows, waterfalls and numerous streams. Ideal for a short trek!

The route to Mardi Himal
This awe-inspiring Mardi Himal trek begins from Pokhara. With wonderful views and the famous Phewa Lake this city makes for a great start! Driving to Phedi just takes about 30 to 40 minutes and from there we start trekking to the Mardi Himal Base Camp. Our first destination is Pitam Deurali village, from where we get to see our first views of the amazing Annapurna Himalayas. Now it goes more up and down passing streams, forests and ridges. Himalayan Friends takes you through beautiful forests of pine, juniper and rhododendron trees. The route takes us also to the Upper Mardi River. Trekking in this undisturbed trail of the Mardi Himal is to experience the real wilderness of mountains and forests. We head on to Badal Danda and finally to High Camp our stop before reaching Base Camp. 
The views from the Mardi Himal Base Camp are absolutely amazing and gives a different panoramic view then the Annapurna Base Camp. After enjoying the height and the accomplishment of reaching Mardi Base Camp we head back to High Camp. The next day we head back down stopping at Siding village and ultimately reaching to Lumle from where we can drive back to Pokhara. 
The Mardi Himal trek is best done in either spring or fall/autumn to get the best weather and experience. Book today the Mardi Himal trek with Himalayan Friends and discover the beauty of the Annapurna Himalayas in Nepal!
