Trip Overview

Mardi Himal Trekking is a short off-the-beaten trekking destination situated at the east of Annapurna Base Camp, and It is the perfect choice for a short trekking escapade. Mardi Himal is a sacred mountain ridge of Mt. Machhapuchhre. To this date, Mardi Himal remains unclimbed due to its religious value to the Hindu and Buddhist religions. 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 path 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 breathtaking! The Mardi Himal Trekking allows you 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 characteristic 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 home to many exotic wild animals. Trekking in the umber terrains of the region, you would be presented with beautiful 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 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 pandas and birds like pheasants and Danphe. As you trek through the village settlements like Phedi and Pothana, you will see the Annapurna ranges in their glory. This trek is a straight line route conducted at the top of a hill. As you arrive in Pothana on day 3, you’ll never trek below an elevation of 2000m. This allows a fantastic backdrop with the snow-capped Himalayas at all times and especially a clear view of Mt. Machhapuchhre.

One of Nepal’s best and short trekking destinations, Mardi Himal Trekking presents the amazing Annapurna’s panoramic ranges. As it is a relatively new trail, there are comparatively fewer crowds so that you can enjoy the views in serenity.

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.

Hareth Alsaadi, Phillipines I went for Everest base camp trip by mid-Dec 2021. I was a little worried as I never went trekking in my entire life.. however, i did a lot of research and came across Nepal Hiking Team so I decided after much thought to go with them Initially, I was in contact with Ganga the CEO of the company... i was highly satisfied with his interaction and communication with me right from the beginning.. i had so many questions and concerns regarding the trip and he was able to guide me and answer me all my inquiries... the on-boarding process was smooth and easy.. when i arrived in Nepal I found everything ready starting from the person picking me up from the airport, the hotel, some equipment for the trek, full introductory meeting on what to expect from the journey, all ground transportation, and even before i left Nepal after the trek.. a PCR staff was provided and came to my hotel... As for my trekking guide Prakash. i am truly happy that i had him as my guide.. a very spectacular human being.. he was more than a guide.. he was a great companion as well.. he ensured that i was having a good time.. continuously shared his expertise of mountains, Sherpa people, and Nepalese culture.. he always went the extra mile to support me... even at days when it was tough for me to continue due to altitude sickness.. he encouraged me and inspired me not to give up on this lifetime journey.. he always puts health and safety first.. Despite all the challenges of Everest Base Camp trek.. but i am very glad i did it... and i did it with an excellent group of people.. Nepal Hiking Team.. i highly recommend them for anyone intends to go trekking in Nepal. Read this review on trip advisor (click here)
Peter, United States of America My friend and I recently spent 2 weeks in Nepal, guided by the Nepal Hiking Team. Our original trek was canceled by an international company,  and the Nepal Hiking Team stepped in flawlessly. Ganga answered all of our questions, had our safety as his top concern always, was flexible, and was gracious with his hospitality. From Kathmandu, Pokhara, to the various tea villages, all the way to ABC, our Nepal Hiking Team was phenomenal. Our guide Arjun and porter Prem were first class, helping us navigate and learn about the terrain, giving us sage advice, and also making sure we had a great time (thanks for the wine!). I felt truly connected with them and it was hard to leave! A massive thank you to the entire team. Let's summit one of those monsters together soon!
William Belue, USA Nepal Hiking was incredible starting with the airport pick up all the way to drop off at the end of the trip. I had a scenario in which the airline lost my luggage and NHT arrange for my boots to be delivered via helicopter. This alone speaks to the level of care they provide their clients. Our guide, Bal, was one of the most knowledgeable people I’ve had the opportunity to meet and his attention to detail truly made this experience for me. The accommodations, food, gear, etc all blew my expectations out of the water. If you are looking for a guided Nepal experience, please look no further. I met other trekkers along my journey who were paying more and receiving less. This trip was a surprise birthday present and I am already planning my next trip back.

Ahmed, USA Joined recently for an Everest Base Camp tour and it was simply spectacular! The team was well equipped with all logistics and planning and Ganga did a fantastic job with communication before and during the trip too. As for the trip itself, it far exceeded expectations as we got lucky with great clear weather and really enjoying our hiking. Our tour guide Bal was excellent as he had a lot of previous experience, very knowledgeable, friendly, and a fun person. The accommodations and food were good too. Overall I would highly recommend Nepal Hiking Team to others. Note: Read this review on Tripadvisor (Click here)
