Mardi Himal Trek 10 Days Brief Insight

Mardi Himal Trek is a hidden treasure situated in Annapurna Region, which is a newly opened trekking route in Nepal. It is one of the most exciting and beautiful trekking destinations in Nepal.

Mardi Trekking could be one of the perfect choices for those who are willing to trek in less crowd trekking areas. This trek offers beautiful natural Panasonic mountain views and scenarios. As it belongs to the Annapurna Region, it also contains dense rhododendron forest.

In this trek, you can enjoy the peaceful environment due to fewer trekkers’ arrival in this trekking area. With this you can have easy connections with the friendly local people and also offers hygienic Homestay along the trek.

In this trek, any inexperienced travel lots also can take participation because it is a relatively easy trek in Nepali Land. Mardi Himal Yoga Trekking is a trending yoga trip to Annapurna Region.

Mardi Himal Trekking follows beaten trails of shepherds as it still provides summer grazing. The trek was accessed only by limited trekking groups with tents and catering team for a long time.  It was officially opened in 2012 and is still untarnished. There are limited Tea Houses with basic facilities commercially running for stays for the trekkers.

This is a short relatively easy and unspoiled trek not much far from Pokhara. Nevertheless, it is highly diverse with cultural insight, beautiful forest walks, and alpine landscapes. The altitude gain becomes more gradual as the trail particularly follows the ridge.
