Trip Overview

Mardi Himal Trekking is a short off-the-beaten trekking destination situated at the east of Annapurna Base Camp, 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 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 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 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 an amazing backdrop with the snow-capped Himalayas at all times and especially a clear view of Mt. Machhapuchhre.

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

Jeff, North America Just got back from Nepal a couple of days ago, where my partner and I were doing an Everest Base Camp Trek assisted by Nepal Hiking Team. Their service couldn't have been better. I started planning this trip last Spring and looked at numerous trekking companies. Chose NHT due to the tremendously positive reviews on them, the professionalism of their website, and the quick response I got from Ganga when I sent an initial inquiry via their website -- he phoned me within a few hours, apparently as soon as the morning had come round to Nepal (given the time difference between North America and Nepal). He was extremely helpful and responsive from the start, all the way through the completion of our trek and the last couple of days back in Kathmandu. Our guide for the trek, Bhim, couldn't have been more helpful and took very good care of us and kept us safe. The whole operation and experience couldn't have been more positive.
Marcel, South Africa We recently returned from an EPIC trekking adventure to Everest Base Camp with the Nepal Hiking Team. Due to some time restraints we trekked on the cusp of the season, started our trek on 30th Aug, and returned to Kathmandu on the 10th of Sept, and what a great decision that was! The weather was amazing, we had most of the tea-houses to ourselves, our guides were on their first trip after the second wave of the covid 19. So it was great for them as well to witness everything as if for the first time. If you prefer a more 'quiet' trek, then I would recommend going on the cusp of the season! Our guide Raj of Nepal Hiking Team, did everything in his power to make the trip a most memorable trip and our wonderful porter who's name happens to be 'Love' totally lived up to his name! I cannot thank the Nepal Hiking Team enough for all their prep work, the guide's knowledge and caring for our welfare, and Ganga, the father of the group who personally met us at the airport and made sure that all our needs were met. What a great team, I highly recommend Nepal Hiking Team for your future Himalayan trekking!
Raymond Low, Singapore Nepal Hiking Team provide an excellent guide to me when I hiked Everest Base Camp. My guide, Mr. Prakesh Rai, is very professional and caring... He always gives me very informative replies whenever I have a question or two about the terrain which we are trekking, the history of certain towns or places we passed by or stayed...He is always asking how I am (my old right ankle injury came back)...and will help me carry my load.... We had a good time together especially when we take photographs of the awesome scenery.....He works tirelessly and would be a concern for my diet and always asked me if I had enough of food, hows my leg was, and whether feeling ok especially when we are going towards a higher altitude..... We had a wonderful acclimatization climb and he is always observing me how I am doing. Nepal Hiking Team rocks!.... And I would sincerely recommend my friends to this group..... It’s simply awesome!... Thank you Nepal Hiking team and it's truly a great experience traveling with your professional guide!
Yang, Singapore It was an awesome experience in Nepal, in which a big part of my trip was covered in the mountain, thank to NHT. Ganga, the company manager has been engaging since my enquiry and very efficient and patient with all my queries. They are flexible to customize to my needs due to my planned itinerary besides hiking. They also made arrangement for airport pick up and Ganga met me in person in my lodge to go through the procedures and discussion. 2 days prior to the trek it was raining heavily and many flights were cancelled. We were lucky to tag along a rescue helicopter to Lukla, also thank to Ganga's arrangement. When we arrived at the start point, we were welcome by the friendly guide and porters. My relationship with Gurung, the guide was very good, he took care of me every single bit of the trip, as I was a slow walker in the team. He would check our conditions from time to time to ensure our well beings. Gurung and I joked around in the tea houses and we made many friends and some exchange of cultural knowledge. I was not well when I returned from Base Camp. We discussed and we decided that an evacuation was needed. Gurung visited me in the hospital and sent me back to the hotel after discharge. I had a farewell lunch with him. Ganga and Hari, the 2 managers visited me on the 2 days and they even sent me to the hospital again for report collection. Hari also sent me to the airport on my departure day. I have total satisfaction and heart-felt appreciation for Nepal Hiking Team. There were other companies who tried to compromise prices and quality but not NHT, who insisted on quality and care above all. I'm back in Singapore safely. And they are keeping in contact with me on some follow-ups. I truly want to recommend you this company for their awesome service given the reasonable if not attractive price! This trip was so awesome although I had some hiccups on my decent. I miss Nepal alot, and the friendship shared.
