Mardi Himal Trek Information

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 the veteran, especially when they have a little time. Just like every big and every small trek has its beauty, Mardi Himal Trek has its 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 an altitude of 4250m. 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 Trek. But what makes the Mardi Himal Trek different is it is like a homestay trek to a certain extent.


In Kathmandu and Pokhara, you are going to stay at the 3-star category hotel (Value). During trekking, you will spend your night in a tea house. The tea house is a lodge or a guest house. The tea house is an old name for a lodge because trekkers and climbers gave this name 40 years ago. After all, it used to sell only tea then. Now they also sell meals as well as provide bedrooms for the trekkers and climbers. The old name tea house is still used by the trekking agencies in Nepal. Hence, the name tea house trek. Tea house differs from village to village where you are going to spend your night. Some have attached bathrooms as well as running a hot water facility, while others have only basic facilities, that is, you have to share a toilet and a bathroom with others. This is so because they are located at a high altitude and the remotest area. Some provide dormitory-style accommodation, but they also provide you a bed, a pillow, a blanket, and a bedsheet still, you must have your sleeping bag.

You follow the trekking trail that goes uphill, that takes you to the forest, and that shows the different facets of biodiversity.

    Guy Tomsyck

    Overall excellent with much personal attention by the Company Owner. Good guide and porter. 3 Passes trek had fewer folks than the standard EBC trek which was what I wanted and it worked out well. Renjo La Pass was the highlight with the best view of Everest.

    In my 2 week stay,

    In my 2 week stay, John was very professional and took me around to experience all that Kathmandu and surrounding areas has to offer. Sites were seen and many locals were met through John’s network. He is a kind man who will take care of any issue no matter how big or small. I highly recommend his company for any travel needs you may have.

    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.

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.
