Mardi Himal Trek Nepal

The Mardi Himal Trek Nepal takes you on an adventure along the the long rising ridge of Mardi Himal and its summit (5,588m), that forms the south-westerly slope of Mt. Machhapuchhre. Machhapuchhre, which towers majestically over the Pokhara Valley, is best known as Fishtail Mountain.

Your Mardi Himal Trek Nepal will start out journeying gradually along the ridges that are the foothills of the Annapurnas. On your journey, you will afford spectacular views of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna I, II, III, IV, Lamjung Himal, and Manaslu. As we steer away from the tourist trail for several days, you will see how the Nepalese have gone about day-to-day life for centuries. As you make your way through the Nepalese forests and above the tree lines you will follow the ridge up to ‘High camp’ (3,620m). Here you will spend some important time acclimatizing before your ascent (while being awestruck by the views!).

Tour Highlights

  • In the final stage of the trek you will enter the wilderness territory as we go beyond 4,500 meters. Here you will get a picture-perfect view of the great ice fields and blue glaciers of Annapurna Base Camp lie below.
  • You will get to experience unrivalled views of glistening snow-capped giants, with Annapurna I standing high above the rest. The view is almost impossible to equal.
  • AS well as spectacular views, you will enjoy a wonderful insight into the rural life of Nepal. As you through many villages, you will have ample time to take photographs and chat with the local people – who are so friendly and hospitable!

While the first legs of the trek may be gradual it is important to remember you are in the Himalayas, and that 95 percent of the country is hilly and crisscrossed by numerous trails. There is very little flat land. But from experience, we know that if you take it slowly and walk at an even pace you should not experience any problems. Not to mention you will have your tour buddies to encourage you along the way!

Did you know? The highest peaks of Fishtail Mountain (Machhapuchhre) has never been officially climbed due to the impossibility of gaining a permit from the Nepalese Government.
