Overview

Mardi Treks is highly admired short treks in Nepal located on the lap of Annapurna region. The Mardi Himal Trek goes around the vicinity of the Macchapuchre Base Camp from Pokhara, otherwise known as Mt. Fishtail.

Mardi Treks features beautiful villages which are typically Nepali in style and architecture. Aside from that, you will also experience wildlife and panoramic views of the most beautiful mountains in Nepal, including Annapurna South, Mt Machhapuchhre (also known as Fishtail), and Mt Hiunchuli.

The Mardi Himal Trek is one of the hidden gems when it comes to trekking in the Annapurna Region. It is the combination of amazing views, high altitude, eco tourism, beautiful scene, wildlife, jungle, flora, fauna, lifestyle and adventure.
