Tour Details

In the Annapurna area, beyond busy and well-known paths, meander the paths of the Mardi Himal Treck. A relatively new route that was officially opened in 2012 to hikers.

The varied hike, in rather moderate heights, takes you into beautiful wooded areas, through rather traditional places with magnificent views to the 8000’tern Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. You can experience one of the most beautiful views of the holy Machapuchare from the Mardi Himal base camp.

If you are looking for peace and seclusion in a fantastic mountain scenery, this is the place for you. Especially for Nepal newbies who do not want to go so far, this round is suitable.

The first hiking day starts with a drive, about 2 hours to Phedi, from where the trekking tour starts.

But even beyond the more well-known hiking trails, there are the finest views of one of the most beautiful mountains in the region – the Machapuchare, which is also called fishtail for its appearance.
