Mardi Himal Trekking is one of the most exciting and beautiful treks in Nepal. With its vast running terrains, you will get an opportunity to explore traditional villages and incredible scenery. This place, enriched with a diversity of culture, also offers spectacular views of silvery mountains.

This trek offers an opportunity to escape Nepal’s busy life and venture into the deep forest and the high alpine pastures of the Annapurna ranges. Most of the trek in this journey is through the forest and wilderness of Annapurna. The trails of this trek are rarely used and most of the time hard to identify the routes.

The journey to this trek begins with a Mardi Himal trek from Kande (A half an hour drive from Lakeside/Pokhara).
