Mardi Himal Trek
Mardi Himal (5587 meters) is the name given to the feature of the long rising ridge and its summit that from the southwesterly lower slope of Mount Machhapuchhare (Mt. Fishtail). This peak is situated in the Annapurna region of Nepal.
This trek offers the opportunity to escape Nepal’s tourist trails to venture in to the deep forests and roam the high alpine pastures that flank the Annapurna ranges. Explore the traditional villages; get magnificent panoramic views of diverse landscape, amazing bio-diversity of culture are highlights of this trek.
From Pokhara we drive to Phedi and start our trek spending the first night at Dhampus (1700 m). Here you will get an opportunity to explore the native Gurung village and experience their Culture, tradition and their lifestyles. From Dhampus we trek through the forest of birch, rhododendron, and oak to reach Forest Camp (2550m) our second nights camp site. The next day we climb through the forest to reach Low Camp (3150m). En-route we get glimpses of Mt.Hiunchuli and Annapurna South. As we climb further through the forest up to High Camp (4100m) Annapurna South seems near enough to throw a rock at and Machhapuchare itself close enough to touch! The next day we will do a day trip which will take us just above 4500 meters in altitude to get panoramic views of the Himalayas including Annapurna I, Mt. Dhaulagiri Ganesh Himal and dozens of other peaks. After taking pictures we return back to camp and head further down to Forest camp. The next day hike downhill to Merabari for our final nights lodge. We start the descend the next day by hiking to Siding Village where we will board the vehicle and drive to Pokhara city.
