Mardi Himal Trek was not popular until recently, but now this trek has started to attract people as there are basic lodges available on the trail up to High Camp. This trekking trail takes you through beautiful Rhododendron forests, walking on a ridge above the treeline with stunning views of Annapurna South, Mardi Himal and Machapuchare ( Fishtail ). Despite gaining popularity with trekkers from both overseas and locals, it is an excellent alternative to the Poonhill trek with a lot fewer trekkers.
We have included two nights in a homestay to enjoy true Nepali hospitality, food with two ethnic groups at the end of the trek. Enjoy this trek with our value-added service with expert trek leader, our specially prepared meals that use superfood as ingredients for better nourishment and acclimatization.
