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.

Reviews

Lauren and Tim, Australia

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.

Greetings from Australia

Mark, USA My family of four went to Everest Base Camp just before the pandemic hit the world. It was a long-awaited family vacation. We go camping whenever we can. But my teen boys were worried about being in the remote mountains for two weeks. Nonetheless, they were still up for a challenge. We knew about Nepal Hiking Team through a family friend. They previously did one of their treks and had only lovely things to say about their services. And we, too, listening to their experience, contacted Nepal Hiking Team for our family vacation. They were cautious with our requests and requirements. They were quick in responding to our questionable amount of inquiries. They were always thorough and prompt. Likewise, our pill of happiness and motivation, our guide Bhim was always there to encourage us whenever we felt it wasn't easy to go forward. He assured us we could finish the journey, and we did too. He never forgot to remind us to stay hydrated and that also on an hourly basis. He routinely checked our pulses to check our oxygen level and was always asking if we needed anything. The trekking team took good care of us during the trek. As much as our safety was given a priority, they made sure we were enjoying our trek as well. He was a master of trekking and had every bit of information about the mountains. He knew the mountains' names and continued to amaze us with his knowledge of mountains and their people. Our family vacation was fantastic, and its praise goes to the company and our talented guide Bhim. Without him and our robust porters, we would not enjoy the mountains' beauty to the fullest. We are happy that we went with our friend's recommendation and choose NHT for our extraordinary journey. We plan to visit again when all the commotion caused by the virus subsides.
Jessica, Australia I am glad that I decided to undertake the Everest Base Camp Trek. My partner and I both are avid hikers. Before this, we had never opted for trekking. Nepal was on our list of places to go for a long time, but we never got a chance to dwell on it due to work. But last winter, everything worked for us. And we decided it is time to visit Nepal. We both wanted to do trekking, but since Nepal's mountains are not easy for beginners, I was more leaning towards doing easy and short treks in Nepal. But my partner was so keen on doing the Everest Base Camp trek, so we agreed to the EBC trek. Even though we had decided on the hike, I was still skeptical about doing it because of its high-altitude nature. And when we found Nepal Hiking Team, we stated our concern to them as well. They were so helpful and informed them, and the trek is doable by the first-time trekker. They advised we got on training mode immediately as we still had few months left before starting the walk. Since I was the most concerned one, I paid most attention to building physical stamina. After months of training and waiting, it was finally time for the trek, and when we arrived in Nepal, Kathmandu airport, NHT was warmly welcomed by the team. A day before the hike, Ganga briefed about the walk, and the next day we got on the flight to Lukla. It was frightening but worthy of an adventurous experience. Our guide Narayan, amazed us with his knowledge about the mountains. He always made sure we were comfortable on the trek and never rushed our journey. He instead obliged to approach the walk smoothly and slowly. As I was more conscious about getting altitude sickness, he shared many helpful tips to avoid altitude sickness. He was very patient and always answered whenever we had one too many questions to ask. And for that reason, we are thrilled we choose NHT and have Narayan for our trek. If it were not for NHT, I would not be able to experience the trek's beautiful features. I am so thankful to NHT for arranging this wonderful and unique. All the credits go to your fantastic team for our wonderful experience in the Himalayas. We will revisit Nepal and have your company plan our next trip!
Paul Wilson, USA Everest Base Camp Trek was on my bucket list ever since I saw the bewildering Everest range images on my Pinterest page. That scenic destination stole my heart in a bit. So, I was like I had to be there someday. And when the perfect time came around, I started preparing for the trek. Nepal Hiking Team was recommended to me by my friends who trekked EBC a few years back. I immediately contact them and arrange my most awaited journey. My guide for the trek was Paban, and I am lucky to have him on the hike. I am a slow walker as I did not have any experience of trekking. He was very attentive about my pace. I never asked to walk faster as I was trekking in a group. He has a broad knowledge of the mountains and about the Sherpa people. He explained about all the mountains visible to our eyes. There were many things best all through the journey. A few of my best experiences on the trek would be breakfast at Everest View Hotel, rest day in Namche Bazaar, and Everest base camp itself. Also, the flight to Lukla was quivering, which fulfilled my need for an adrenaline rush. Similarly, the early morning hike to Kala Patthar fulfilled my thirst for breathtaking views of the mountains. From Kala Patthar, we got an up-close view of Mt. Everest, not from the base camp. I am glad I went on this journey. It was everything I had always expected it to be. And for not letting my expectations down, I am very much thankful to Paban and Nepal Hiking Team for making this trek a trip of a lifetime. From the beginning of the journey to Nepal's last day, they were always present to look after my needs. I am glad I choose them and very thankful for unforgettable memories. Every part of the journey was cherishing, and I look forward to exploring more trekking trails of Nepal in the future.
John, United States A good agency is the key to making or breaking a good travel experience. This is the most important factor that I look for when I am deciding on selecting a travel agency for my trips. For my visit to Nepal, the peak trekking season had many trekkers doing the Everest Base Camp Trek and I was no exception. When I checked Nepal Hiking Team, I was thoroughly impressed by their proficient website. When I e-mailed them about my query, I was surprised and immediately impressed by how prompt and detailed the responses were. Then as the arrangement of the trip was underway, I was thoroughly convinced that I had selected a good agency. It was proven true when I arrived in Nepal for the trip. I was greeted by Rabin, my guide for the trip. His well-mannerism and kind nature made me feel at ease. Then with a good briefing by Mr. Ganga at the office fully sealed my concentrated belief that I was in good hands. This relieved my peace of mind and I just let go the entire trip. It was the most fun I have ever had!  I had the best services and Rabin’s guidance made the trip into a smooth sailing! Thank You Nepal Hiking Team! Hope you guys will have more tourist after this ongoing pandemic.
