Situated in the Annapurna Region, Mardi Himal Trek is a unique experience. This trek is one of the most underrated treks in Nepal. It has been getting attention among the trekkers in recent years as the number of internal and external tourists has increased. Being an “off the beat” trek, this route can be ideal for these people seeking to explore nature and culture in a few days. Pokhara serves as the hub for different trekking routes in the region like Poon Hill, Annapurna Base Camp, Khopra Ridge, and others.

Normally it takes around six days to complete this trek, but it can be extended or combined with other treks in this region. The trek begins after about an hour of drive to Kande, the trail leads uphill through the beautiful village of Dhampus. These villages are a fusion of traditional and modern lifestyle. The terraced fields grow different crops like paddy, maize, mustard, and others. The mesmerizing views of the Dhawalagiri (8167m), Annapurna South (7219m), Hiunchuli (6441m) and Machhapuchhre (6993m) make this uphill climb worth it. The trail continues through the dense forest in the chain of green hills allowing one to get completely lost in nature. The forest is composed of mainly the Rhododendrons which is the National flower of Nepal. This flower blooms in the spring and the forest turn out to be colorful. After crossing the forested trail, the forest starts to become less dense. The trail starts to become narrower and thrilling as it continues on the ridges. The view of the Mt Fishtail (Machhapuchhre) leads the trail for most of the time. After a certain elevation, the trail continues on the barren ridge, with the view of snowcapped peaks. The highest point of this trek is the Mardi Himal Base Camp situated on the elevation of 4550 m which is an alpine zone. This area receives snowfall every winter and makes trekkers feel like they have climbed a mountain.

The panoramic view of the mountains and the hills are there to give you a natural high. All of these highlights packed in this short duration make Mardi Himal trek among one of the most beautiful treks in the country. Therefore we Vertex Holiday recommend to you  his trek if you lack time restrictions but are determined to witness an adventure of a lifetime.

Trip Itinerary



Namaste and welcome to Nepal. After your arrival, Kathmandu, Vertex Holiday’s airport representative receives you at the airport and transfer to the hotel. After getting refreshed, we give you a short briefing and orientation by our trekking guide. In the evening. Overnight at the hotel.



From Kathmandu, we drive to the tourist town of Pokhara. As an option of the driving, you can take a flight and see the views of Langtang, Manaslu and Annapurna region peaks. If driving, tourist buses leave at 7 am and you have to check-in at 6.30 am. Through the winding road, we drive for 6 hours and reach Pokhara. Walking throughout the lakeside city is fabulous. Overnight at the hotel.



After breakfast, we begin to drive on the outskirts of the Pokhara valley. The Fishtail peak at the backdrop can be seen awesome. About an hour's drive, we reach to Kande, the gateway of the Mardi Himal Trek. It goes through the lush forest of oak and rhododendron. The trail is undisturbed and rewarding. Gradually, we reach to the Forest Camp and take a rest. Overnight at lodge.



One of the fascinating aspects of the Mardi Himal trek is that we get to high altitude in a short time. This is the second day of the trek we reach over 3000 meters. We walk through an off-the-beaten trail, dotted by the orchid forest. The pen pointed peak of Annapurna south and spectacular Himchuli is surprising. The streamline of the Modi Khola can be seen downwards. We stop at low camp. Enjoy the warm dining hall. Overnight at lodge.



The ratio of our climb is around 600 meters. After breakfast, we begin to ascend through the open cattle grazing meadow. The trail is a steep climb up from low camp to the high camp. To deal with the high altitude region, we need to acclimatize. We are just in front of the massive Annapurna and pinpointed Fishtail peak. Though the lodge is basic where we stay, it has gotten a warm dining hall, where we can feel the warmth of sitting around. Overnight at lodge.



This is a huge day of the Mardi Himal trek. After the breakfast at the Highcamp, we gradually climb up to the Mardi Himal base camp, which is rugged and prevailed with the alpine panoramas. The route is undisturbed. Reaching base camp, the sceneries of Mt Annapurna, Fishtail and Mardi Himal range are breathtaking. Spending some remarkable moments, we begin to descend to the High camp and take a rest. Overnight at lodge.



After breakfast, we trek down gradually from the high camp through the lush woods. The descend is faster and even the trail becomes nice as we walk towards the downhill trail. Through the dense forest, we walk gradually to Siding. Overnight at lodge.



Today, we drive back to Kathmandu. It’s a scenic drive through the Prithvi Highway road. After your arrival at Kathmandu, transfer to the hotel. Overnight at the hotel.



Having a good memory with Vertex Holiday our representative drops you at the airport for your final departure.
