Mardi Himal Trek is a newly opened popular trek in the Annapurna region. It is located to the east of the Annapurna Base camp virtually under the spectacular Machhapuchhare(Fishtail). This trek is the best destination to avoid the crowd. The trek goes through quiet stone-built villages past wonderful rhododendron forests blooming in many different colors. The forest path continues until about 3,300m. On the way, you can see astonishing mountain views and landscape. The trail takes on a rugged mountain setting with spectacular views of Mardi Himal, Machhapuchhre, and Annapurna South. There are simple guesthouses and Homestays along the entire route. The trail takes you very close to Mount Machhapuchhre.
Having been under the radar for many years, Mardi Himal Trek has finally started to get the recognition it deserves and the trail provides some of the best views of the picturesque Annapurna Massif and the ever-so-popular Machhapuchhre Peak. Apart from the obvious attraction of the massive Himalayan range, the possibility to witness the indigenous lifestyle, diverse biology and the serene landscape are some of the other plus points of the trek.
