Mardi Himal Trek will take you to an unexplored area of the famous Himalayan region.

The massif has 5 among the total 12 highest mountains worldwide, all of which are at close with very close quarters to the route.

Later on, by descending the forest, we will get an entirely different route taking us steeply down towards the upper part of Mardi Khola, which is a torrent formed by snow and ice of the entire Mardi Himal area.
Despite of remote areas, our trekking expedition will take us to various warm valleys and a large number of friendly villages. Other than this, we make our trekking route across the Mardi Khola Bank from the hillside villages and move down through various lovely fields and simple farms. Overall, you will get the opportunity to experience a pleasant trekking across the idyllic countryside in Nepal.
