Trip Overview

Mardi Himal Trekking is a short off-the-beaten trekking destination situated at the east of Annapurna Base Camp is the perfect choice for a short trekking escapade. Mardi Himal is a sacred mountain ridge of Mt. Machhapuchhre. Till this date, Mardi Himal remains unclimbed due to its sacred value to the Hindu and Buddhist religion. This new and coming trek is a hidden gem of Nepal.

The Mardi Himal Trekking lets you experience the remote settlements and trekking trails in the Annapurna Region. The trail is decorated with splendid views of the mountains encompassed with the beguiling landscape of the region ornamented by silver serpentine rivers that cross across the land like stitching on the continuity of the emerald terrain.

The sight of the magnificent Mardi Himal in the backdrops of the picturesque quiddity of the jaded land is breath-taking! The Mardi Himal Trekking allows you the opportunity to trek along the trails that lead through verdantly rich forests and wooded acreages of rhododendron trees blossoming with the ethereal bloom of the flowers in colors of red, white and pink. Trudging through the alpine forests and chartreuse vegetation, you would be presented with a green canopy under the cerulean sky; the ambiance of the isolated trekking trail providing a soft hazy patina in its celestial environment. Passing along many dainty settlements and villages, you would also get the opportunity to encounter the local people and observe their unique and idiosyncratic customs and cultures and their day to day life at the bosoms of the lush hillocks and the secluded mountains. The trekking trails also excurses along many terraced farmlands brimming with the wet plantations of rice and mustards, along with vast areas of pasturelands with a florescent presence of ruby poppies and purple foxgloves.

The Mardi Himal Trekking explores the palatial quintessence of the remote areas of the Annapurna region, encompassing within it the sense of beguiling adventure. You can put up a tent in the amethyst trail and sleep under the baldachin of stars! Views of the magnificent mountain peaks emerge in the tranquil environment of the region, which is like a picturesque sublimity of natural elegance. Oak, pine, juniper and rhododendron trees line the lushness of the area where you can catch glimpses of the animals and the unique avifauna that reside there. The forests in the Annapurna region are a home to many exotic wild animals. Trekking in the umber terrains of the region, you would be presented with wonderful views of mountain peaks like Mardi Himal, Mount Annapurna massif and Machhapuchhre. The topography is ardently decorated by terraced rice fields enveloping the hills, brimming with rich wet plantations of rice and mustard, dainty valleys that present their sights like postcards and cyan glaciers the tincture of frozen dragon fire. The Mardi Himal Trekking is incorporated in the perimeters of the Annapurna Sanctuary, thus you would be trudging through the sanctuary’s preservation of endangered foliages and animals.

The off-the-beaten trail gives you the luster of watching the majestic Himalayas, majorly Annapurna’s panoramic pristine beauty. The lush green lands garnished by the Annapurna ranges like Dhaulagiri and Machhapuchre will accompany you along the way. Mardi Himal presents breathtaking views of the Annapurna ranges in peace as Mardi Himal Trekking is less crowded. Mardi Himal Trek is rich in nature, woodlands, culture and adventure. As you make your way through the woodlands you will see the beauty of the floras and fauna’s and red, pink and white rhododendrons found in the region. You’ll enjoy the beautiful forested areas, several base camps and snow-capped mountains. Similarly, you’ll encounter several animals like Red panda and birds like pheasants and Danphe. As you trek through the village settlements like Phedi and Pothana you will see the Annapurna ranges in its glory. This trek is a straight line route conducted at the top of a hill. As you arrive in Pothana on the day 3, you’ll never trek below an elevation of 2000m. This allows amazing backdrop with snow-capped Himalayas at all times and specially a clear view of the Mt. Machhapuchhre.

Upon arrival, we were welcomed and greeted by our guide Prakash. They made sure that we were properly settled in on our hotels and that everything was comfortable for us. We were also kept up to date with the proceedings as well and then, with Prakash (Guide) and Narayan (our porter) we were off on a vehicle to Pokhara. Everyone within our group was made to feel warm and welcome and no one was ever neglected. Nepal Hiking Team is performing on a level of service most companies only ever dream to reach. They are excellent ambassadors for the company and for their country as well. I was privileged for having them as my companies for the trek.

Leaving no room for disappointments, we look forward to seeing Nepal Hiking Team again in the near future, and thank for making our trek a special one. The beautiful landscapes, the kindness of the Nepali people and the trails were filled with fantastic views of the Annapurna Mountains. The first couple of days of trekking from trekking to Pothana, the high and low camps and the Upper View point are some of the most beautiful parts of the trek. We really enjoyed the landscape as it was so beautiful out there.

Nepal Hiking Team arranged everything in the most perfect of ways and we are glad that we were with NHT for the trek.

Bogdan Ilie, USA My wife and I were lucky to have chosen Nepal Hiking Team to plan our trip. We opted for a private guide and had a porter as well. We waited at the airport, and we were dropped off there as well when we left Nepal. Our guide, Ram, made sure that our trip was organized flawlessly and that we were doing well and happy at all times. He chose the best available teahouses, and we were allowed to chose the food from the menu in all of them (there seem to be agencies that say you can either choose dal bhat or pay out of pocket). We were even served, during dinner, sliced apples carried by the porter. Ram was very knowledgeable, and he shared information related to mountain peaks, vegetation, and animals. As we saw, his English skills are excellent. Above all, he is friendly and has a positive attitude, so we enjoyed talking and interacting with him. The porter, Bhola, was also very friendly. He looked like he was 50 kg but carried 55-65 kg easily. Overall, it was a fantastic once-in-a-lifetime experience to which Ram, Bhola, and Nepal Hiking Team contributed substantially. One of the owners, Ganga, even offered free rides to do the PCR tests or other purposes. We couldn't have hoped for better treatment from this agency.

Lucie H, UK In May this year - some friends and I joined the NHT For 16 days. Every fine detail was considered, with our guides and porters going above & beyond to ensure we were comfortable and happy. Their knowledge and experience created a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us all. I have no hesitation in recommending Nepal Hiking Team to anyone! They made this experience perfect, thank you, guys.  
Mike, USA I went with my girlfriend to the Everest Base Camp with a guide and porter from Nepal Hiking Team. Right from the pick-up from the airport, we felt like valued clients, and we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed in an otherwise hectic city. From the moment the trek started, our guide Bheg ensured we were comfortable and constantly checked on our physical state throughout each day and provided advice and assistance where we needed it. Overall, the experience was one I'll never forget, primarily because I proposed at the top and because the Nepal Hiking team made the experience as stress-free and as organized as possible, all with a smile on their face at all times. I highly recommend NHT.
Megan Y., China Ganga, Balaram, and the team were fantastic; even when we had a 24-hour flight delay, they re-scheduled everything without fuss or fee. We had an excellent driver for just us (and guide where we had them). We even changed things along the way, and whether the driver, guide, or agent, they were more than willing to help and be flexible. :) The trip took in some hiking, some sightseeing, some relaxing, the jungle, and for each occasion and location, we were provided a specialist guide for the event/location. The hotels they chose for us were precisely our requirements based on the activity we were experiencing on any given day. Balaram even met us many times in person to round off the experience and ensure all was well and take honest feedback in person - the personal touch makes you feel even more appreciated and welcome as a customer. We would recommend anyone contact the team if they are planning a trip to Nepal. Thank you, guys, for a memorable vacation.
