Trip Overview

Nepal, being a mountainous country is filled with wonderful trekking routes. One of those exciting trekking routes is Mardi Himal Trek. It is a quiet and less crowded trek for those who want an “off the beat ’’ trekking experience. It is one of those less noticed treks with some of the best views of the snowcapped mountains and hidden landscapes in the Annapurna region.

Mardi Himal Trek starts with your arrival at Tribhuwan International Airport. After a short stay in the Kathmandu valley, the trip begins. During your stay in Kathmandu, you will be visiting various historical and cultural landmarks like Basantapur Durbar Square, Bhaktapur Durbar Square, and Patan Durbar Square which is listed as UNESCO world heritage sites. You will also be visiting other UNESCO world heritage sites like the monkey temple “Swayambhunath’’ and Buddhist stupa “Bouddhanath’’. After Kathmandu, you will be traveling to the beautiful tourist city of Pokhara. The flight to Pokhara is filled with the exquisite sceneries. During this trek, you will pass through the rhododendron forests and enjoy the amazing views of the landscapes at every turn. You can enjoy both camping and homestay during the trek. You will also get to meet the locals and see the ethnic villages in the region. It is a trek with moderate difficulty and doesn’t require super fitness so even first-timers can enjoy this trek.

The trek package not only gives you the opportunity to see the snowcapped mountains like Mardi, Machhhapuchhre, Annapurna (south) and Hiunchuli but also allows to you to explore the untapped landscapes and experience the village life.
