I Love Trekking Nepal Offers a short fascinating trek in absolute wilderness, as this area is very seldom frequented by trekkers. it lies approximately 8-9 k.m. north of Pokhara, as the crow flies, and is  this the most southerly of the Annapurna range. From some viewpoints it seems little more than an outcrop on the southwest flank of Mt. Machhapuchare (Fish Tail). Mardi Himal is the lowest and least climbed and visited of all the trekking peaks in Nepal.

Mardi Himal's East Face is separated from the Machhapuchare ridge by a col (circa 5,200m). The normal route of ascent reaches this cool from a glaciated amphitheatre that rises above a hidden plateau, also known as the 'Other Sanctuary'.

The area is quite steep sided and heavily wooded with bamboo and rhododendron. Above the forest, high alpine pastures provide good grazing and a habitat for undisturbed wildlife.

As it is low altitude the mountain obviously has a great deal of potential for those interested in small scale exploratory climbing and the ridges will certainly present climbing challenges at a reasonable standard.

We lead you to a rarely visited area, isolated from the teahouses and lodges, which proliferate on most of the trekking routes around the Annapurna Range.

The trail to base camp is short and sharp on ill-defined trails that can particularly difficult in wet and snow conditions.
