Mardi Himal Trek - a short trek in the Himalayas

Tripoto
25th Sep 2017

Mardi Himal trek is newly opened short and relatively easy trek in the Annapurna region of the Himalayas. Since the region was accessed only by some expedition groups until now, this is very pristine trek.

The trek starts from Pokhara city and climbs the ridge to the buttresses of Mt Fishtail and Mardi Himal. Unlike other treks in the Himalayas, the trail gains altitude gradually without much ups and downs. Since the trail simply follows the ridge, it is scenic most of the time. There is also a choice of making it more adventurous by exploring Mardi Himal base camp at 4,500 m. Or you can just climb to the upper view point at about 4,000 m and start to head down.
