Mardi Himal Yoga Trek

Mardi Himal Yoga Trek Brief Insight

Discovered in 1953, Mardi Himal is a mountain with a height of 5587 m in the Annapurna area in Nepal. It lies less than 20 km north from Pokhara. It is a newly opened trail in the Annapurna region. Mardi was not accessed by many for a long time except for some trekking group and catering tea.

The first successful summit to Mardi Himal was in 1961. The east wall is the most used route for climbing Mardi Himal so far. The climbing through the south face has not been successful so far.

Mardi Himal base camp is 4500 meters above sea level. It lies in line with the southwest ridge of Mt. Machhapuchhare. It is most visible from the south with three clear rock ridges, separated by hanging glaciers. The trek follows beaten trails of shepherds as it still provides summer grazing.

Mardi is highly diverse with cultural insight, beautiful forest walk and alpine landscape. The trial turns out to be beautiful and captivating during the cold when it starts snowing. The majestic view of Mt. Machhapuchhare and Annapurna range can be seen best from Mardi.

“True Yoga works with nature and is able to awaken the higher powers of nature within us. This is not something that can be measured or reflected in a commercial way or by marketing. Yet it is something that we can bring into Yoga classes and Yoga teachings. Bringing out the ecological and planetary importance of Yoga Ayurveda is the real mission to be taken up.”

                                                                                                                                       – David Frawley
