Mardi Himal Trekking is a wilderness and a remote area trekking in Annapurna Region trekking in Nepal. The rugged terrain and off the beaten trail takes us to the Base Camp of Mardi Himal which offers us breathtaking views of Mardi Himal, Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) and Annapurna Massif. This less crowded trekking trail in Annapurna Region is the first preference of the naturalists and wilderness lover. 

The hidden gem in Annapurna region trekking, Mardi Himal trekking is hiking through magical rhododendron experiencing country ethnic groups and their way of life. The picturesque settlement of ethnic groups, winding trails, cascading natural waterfalls, vegetations, terraced fields are major highlights of this trekking. This trekking tends to be more beautiful during March and April since the entire hills are blanketed with flowering rhododendron. The views are so stunning. 

Mardi Himal Trekking commences from Pokhara after our flight or drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara. Further, we drive to Phedi for an hour. Phedi is the beginning point of our trekking. From Phedi, we hike all the way up to the village named Dhampus through lush rhododendron and beautiful terraced fields and settlements. Dhampus is also a popular vantage point to witness beautiful Machhapuchhre and entire Annapurna range. The trail then ascends up to the place where two trails meet. The one leads us to Australian Camp and the other takes us to Mardi Himal Base Camp. We follow the second one. Our 3-4 hours climb takes us to Mardi Himal Base Camp from where we can witness magnificent Mardi Himal, alluring Machhapuchhre, Annapurna South, Gangapurna, Himchuli and many other snow-fed peaks in the skyline.
