Mardi Himal Trekking

The "Off the beaten track" to the Annapurna Machapuchare (Fishtail) trek, also known as Mardi Himal trekking, follows the least trodden trail away from the trekkers maddening crowd with a true feel of exploration. This is often uncrowned trek where there are no lodges is only possible by camping therefore this is very quiet compared with other routes in this region. This trek offers the opportunity to escape Nepal 's tourist trails, to venture into the deep forests and roam the high alpine pastures to the base of the sacred, fluted peak of Machapuchare and Mardi Himal. The great ice fields and the blue glaciers of the Annapuran sanctuary walls lie below us. The emphasis of this trek is on the forest and wilderness zones. We ascend through Hindu villages and pristine forests (magnolia, oak and rhododendron) to alpine campsites that afford panoramic views of the Annapurna Range . Forays to the base of Machapuchare provides a further highlight before a delightful return through Gurung villages to Pokhara.
