Mardi Trek

Mardi Himal Trek is the best short trek that gives you the ABC trek entire joy

Trip Overview

To those who have heard the Mardi Himal Trek for the first time, they do not like to compare it with the Annapurna Circuit Trek because they know this is the best trek for the beginner, the medium and for the veteran, especially when they have a little time. Just like every big and every small trek has its beauty, Mardi Himal Trek has her own. It has the most beautiful landscapes that the trekkers most sought in their life. Whether it is the Annapurna Circuit Trek or the Mardi Himal Trek, both take place in the Annapurna Region, the second famous trekking region of Nepal and one of the best in the world, according to the listing done by the National Geographic Magazine. Mardi Himal Trek fulfills the wishes of the trekkers who want to walk on ridges and at the altitude of 4250 m. Mardi Himal Trek is not as old as hill because it opened its door only in 2012 intending to hit bullseyes as well as with its satisfying natural beauties and shows the stunning view of Fishtail Mountain, one of the major highlights of the Annapurna Region where the trekkers also have options to do the Annapurna Base Camp Trek, the Annapurna Circuit Trek, and the Poon Hill Ghorepani Trek. But what makes the Mardi Himal Trek different is it is like a homestay trek to a certain extent.

The trekking trail takes you to a green forest where there are lots of rhododendron trees. Rhododendron is the national flower of Nepal. Seeing them, you follow the trekking trail that takes you to Forest Camp. When you reach there, you still have a few hours to explore the nearby area. The trekking trail is quiet, and you also walk by the trees of oak, maple, and hemlock. Another name of Forest Camp is Kokar.

You follow the trekking trail that goes uphill, that takes you to the forest, and that shows the different facets of biodiversity. From this forest, you head to low camp which is a village, but at the same time, it is also a viewpoint from where you can see the breath-taking view of Fishtail (6993 m). On the way, there are lots of rhododendron trees as well as moss, lichen, and tree ferns.

Following the uphill trekking trail, you head to Mardi Himal (5587 m) and Fishtail (6993 m). As you head to these places, you gradually leave the vegetation area. And this area is also home to the Daphne pheasant (the national bird of Nepal) from where the uphill trekking trail takes you to High Camp. From the trekking trail, you will also see the stunning view of Annapurna South and Hiunchuli. Walking on the hill to Mardi Himal through the grass is like having some sort of new experience. Overall, today’s highlight includes the spectacular view of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli and Machhapuchhre.

Today also the trekking trail has the same nature, that is, it goes uphill and downhill, but the only difference is it is very steep and narrow. However, it is not challenging. Walking on this type of trail is having a new kind of experience, and this is how you reach Upper Viewpoint from where you will see the panoramic view of Mardi Himal (5587m), Annapurna I (8091m), Annapurna South (7219m), Hiunchuli (6441m), Baraha Shikhar (Mt. Fang) (7647m), Tent Peak (5695m), Singhachuli (6501m), and Machapuchhre (6993m). On the way, you will see dzos which are a hybrid of yak and cow. You will also see a lot of small huts that belong to the herders.

    Low Camp is awesome and so is High Camp. They have their own highlights, after swallowing the highlights, you head back following the same trekking trail through which you have come to High Camp, but the only difference is you follow the descending trekking trail this time which becomes easy. First, you reach Low Camp and from there, you head to Siding, a traditional village, where you will do a homestay.

    First step in the Everest Base Camp

    I was in Nepal for the Everest Base Camp Trek. Outstanding sceneries and good hospitality. On the way to the base camp, I got an opportunity to visit Bthe uddhist monastery as well as got some information about Buddhism. That was great. Our guide and porter were awesome. Very kind and helpful. Thank you, TMG.

    Annapurna Circuit Trek

    Trekking with Travel Max Guide was an amazing experience. My selection of a trip and the company were excellent and of a right decision. In each moment of my walk, I came across adventure and discovered something new. I remember my first step on the Everest Base Camp. The view was spectacular. Passing through the Sherpa communities and staying in Namche Bazaar is unforgettable. I miss the trip very much. Anyway, thank you so much for your service while I was in Nepal. See you next time for the Annapurna Circuit Trek.

    Everest trekking in Nepal

    Originally from the United State of America from the city of Los Angeles where life is busy and rush. I made a trip with TMG. It’s a new experience than I excepted. I found Nepalese people really welcoming. They really love tourists. While trekking in the Everest region, I got time to spend with nature, gained plenty of ideas of culture and tradition from the Himalayas. The trip was totally mind-blowing. TMG has a good team spirit and is dedicated to serving guest and trekkers.

    What we have said, we will provide you all. Please tell us if you need extra. We do not want you only to become happy, but also from happier to the happiest throughout your trip. Having said this, we cannot control the bad weather as well as the other thing, like bandh made by political parties. This thing will lead to a change in your itinerary, but our sole purpose will be to follow it and to take you from one place to another safely. As regards this, we would like to tell you now that you should bring some extra cash for the above situation or for extra days, which are not included in the itinerary, however, the above situation is just like once in a blue moon because Nepal is 99% politically stable country.

    TMG will provide you transportation from Kathmandu to Pokhara and back to Kathmandu on a tourist bus. (If you have a short time, you can take a flight) Those who like to have a private car or jeep, please let us know; you have to pay an additional cost.
