Trip Introduction

If you are looking for short trek in Annapurna Region, The Mardi Himal Trek is a great option to gets off the beaten path. Enjoy fantastic views of the peaks of the Annapurna Range along with traditional villages.

This trek makes a small circuit up to the base camp of Mardi Himal where from you can see stunning views of the famous peaks – the 6993m Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) so it also has the advantage that you don’t have to backtrack over the same route.

The trail starts out in the forest but after a few days you will have great views of the big peaks like Annapurna South and Machhapuchhre or Fish Tail. The trek ends at the Mardi Himal base camp and if you have a few extra days you might even considers extending this trek and climbing Mardi Himal (5,587 m) which is on the same ridge line as Machhapuchhre.
