Mardi Himal Trekking

Mardi Himal Trek is yet another popular trekking trails in the western Annapurna region of Nepal. Mardi Himal is located east of the Modi Khola across the valley from Hiunchuli. Mardi Himal Trek takes you to the off the beaten trail away from busy trails of the region. The trekking trail is also regarded as eco-tourism trail that passes through lush forests filled with Oak, Rhododendron and other vegetation. We spend most of our days in the camps enjoying the alluring beauty of the nature. During the trekking adventure we may spot varieties of wild animals sheltering in the lush forests of the region. The trek further provides a great opportunity to explore rural villages and rural community that are yet untouched by modernization. Traditional custom and lifestyle of the local people is really worth exploring. The trail offers magnificent views of Mt. Dhauglagiri (8167m), Mt. Annapurna (8091m), Annapurna II (7937m), Annapurna III (7555m), Annapurna IV (7525m), Annapurna south (7219m), Hiunchuli (6441m) and Machhapuchhre (Fishtail Mountain) (6988m) etc.
