The Mardi Himal Trek is one of the hidden gems when it comes to trekking in the Annapurna Region. Where most people would do the trek to Annapurna Base Camp, you have the opportunity to go around the corner and get off the beaten trek. The Mardi Himal Trek takes you to the base camp of Mardi Himal, right in the laps of Mardi Himal and Machhapuchhre, dubbed Fishtail Mountain.
On the Mardi Himal Trek, you get the views without the crowds. Expect authentic teahouses, stunning rhododendron forests, and the most terrific views of the Annapurna Mountain Range. You will get an eye in eye with giants like Mardi Himal, Machhapuchhre, Annapurna South and Hiunchuli.
Where is The Mardi Himal Trek?
The Mardi Himal Trek can be found under the watchful eyes of Machhapuchhre, Fish Tail Mountain, one of the giants to be found in the Annapurna Massif. On this trek, you will find many stone houses, quaint teahouses, and many rock cairns. You can find the route of this trek just off the main trail to Annapurna Base Camp. This fact makes it a popular alternative to other treks in the Annapurna Region like the Annapurna Base Camp Trek or the Annapurna Circuit Trek.
What is Different About Doing the Mardi Himal Trek?
The Mardi Himal Trek is a trek that you can find on a side trail of the one to Annapurna Base Camp. It is a bit rougher, a bit more exciting for most but above all, a lot less busy than other treks in the Annapurna Region. The Mardi Himal Trek offers you great views of the lesser-known sides of the Annapurna Massif.
The goal is the Mardi Himal Base Camp, which you will reach at 4,500 meters (17,763 ft). Initially, there weren’t too many teahouses on this trek, but from about 2011 onwards there has been an increase of tea houses along the entire way from start to Mardi Himal Base Camp.
