An Embark on a journey of captivating beauty with the Mardi Himal Trek, a classic route nestled in the northwest of the Annapurna Conservation Area. This trek offers a panoramic spectacle of Annapurna South, Mount Machhapuchhre, and Mount Mardi Himal, showcasing the region's most prominent highlights. Immerse yourself in serene landscapes and discover the allure of this enchanting trekking destination.

The cost of the Mardi Himal Trek varies depending on group size, the category of hotels in Kathmandu, the duration of the trek, and the services required, ranging from USD 650 to 1000 per person for complete Mardi Himal Trekking packages. If you opt for guide services only, it will be $30 per day, including food, accommodation, and salary, excluding transportation round trip. Porter services will be $20 per day, covering food, accommodation, and salary, excluding bus tickets round trip.

Embark on the captivating Mardi Himal Trek, a less crowded and short yet enriching trekking destination nestled in the Annapurna foothills. The Mardi Himal trekking path gained popularity after its first ascent in 1961, revealing unspoiled natural beauty, a hidden gem among the glorious Himalayan landscapes of Nepal. Trekking to Mardi Himal Base Camp unfolds the majestic mountains and wildlife, offering rugged terrain and an off-the-beaten-path experience with stunning views of Mardi Himal, Mount Machhapuchhre (Fishtail), and the Annapurna massif in the magical Himalayas.

The Mardi Base Camp Trek spans 7-9 days, guiding you through beautiful villages in the Kaski district. Ideal for Asian travelers, this trek can be accomplished in 5 to 7 days for those with tight schedules. Our recommended Mardi Himal Trek starts from Kade, reaching Mardi Base Camp and returning to Pokhara, providing opportunities to explore nature and culture amid alpine forests and traditional villages.

Along the Mardi Himal Trek path, encounter wild animals like Himalayan Thar, Barking Deer, Snow Leopard, Musk Deer, spotted deer, and diverse flora including vibrant rhododendrons. Marvel at the spectacular views of Annapurna (I), Annapurna (II), Annapurna (III), Annapurna (IV), Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Machapuchare, and Dhaulagiri.

For a more time-efficient journey, Mardi Trek can be completed in 5 to 6 days from Pokhara, and with proper planning, even from Kathmandu. If time is of the essence, opt for a flight to Pokhara, saving precious time. We offer a tailor-made itinerary to suit your schedule, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable vacation in Nepal.

Choose from two options to reach Pokhara from Kathmandu: land transportation or flights. Flights are available daily, and private transportation, including our comfortable TATA ZESTA Car and 4WD SCORPIO JEEP, offers a convenient and discounted option for our valued guests. Book with us for a seamless and comfortable journey during your Nepal vacation.

Super Trek Mardi Himal

Grâce à des amis Français qui avaient déjà fait 3 treks avec Himalayan Magic Trek, nous sommes entrés en correspondance avec Nabin.


Ce qui nous a d'abord plu, est qu'il était francophone. Il a su nous conseiller sur un trek adapté à nos souhaits : le Mardi Himal.
Nabin a toujours été très réactif aux questions que l'on se posait avant le départ.
Sur place, l'accueil a été très chaleureux, on se sentait en confiance.
Dipak, notre guide (francophone également) a toujours été bienveillant et à l'écoute. Tout était bien organisé.
Shambhu et Kumar (nos porteurs) complétaient joyeusement notre équipe. Nous sommes repartis fiers d'avoir réalisé ce trek. On a pu également, en peu de temps, visiter l'essentiel de Katmandou et Pokhara, grâce à leur organisation.
Bravo à tous, vous êtes des pros, votre gentillesse nous donne envie de repartir pour un nouveau trek encore plus long.
Philippe et Laurence
