Mardi Himal Trek, Fixed Departure Date for 2024/2025/2026

Mardi Himal Trek will take you to an unexplored area of the famous Himalayan region. The trek gives us a close and westerly vantage of the mountain holding winning peak named Machhapuchhare, which in English referred as Fish tail. Machhapuchhare is the southernmost and highest point of the Annapurna Mountain Massif, which has awesomely majestic mountains groups in the central 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. The entire trek requires hiking for 8 days above tree line and through forests to reach at our camp at the high altitude of 4,100meters. 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.

Mardi Himal Trek in autumn season (Sept – Nov)

Mardi Himal Trek in the autumn season offers a truly enchanting experience in the stunning landscapes of the Annapurna region in Nepal. As the monsoon rains ends, the lush greenery of the hills and valleys comes alive with vibrant colors, creating a picturesque backdrop for trekkers. The weather during this time is ideal with clear skies providing unobstructed views of the majestic Himalayan peaks, including the iconic Machapuchare (Fishtail) and Annapurna ranges. The moderate temperatures and crisp mountain air make for comfortable trekking conditions, allowing enthusiasts to traverse the diverse terrain, from dense rhododendron forests to alpine meadows. The trails are adorned with blooming wildflowers, adding a touch of beauty to the journey.

Mardi Himal Trek in winter season (Dec- Feb)

Embarking on the Mardi Himal Trek during the winter season presents a different yet equally enchanting adventure. As the temperatures drop and snow blankets the Annapurna region, the landscape transforms into a winter wonderland, offering trekkers a serene and pristine experience. The crisp mountain air and clear skies provide breathtaking vistas of snow-capped peaks, creating a surreal atmosphere. The trekking trails, though challenging due to the snow, offer a unique opportunity for those seeking a more secluded and peaceful journey. The trek takes on a tranquil quality as the snow-laden trees and frozen landscapes add a magical touch to the surroundings. While the temperatures can be chilly, especially at higher altitudes, the winter trek rewards adventurers with a sense of solitude and the chance to witness the mountains in their pristine, untouched glory.

Mardi Himal Trek in spring season (March- May)

Trekking to the Mardi Himal during the spring season reveals a spectacular tapestry of nature's grandeur in the heart of the Annapurna region. As winter gives way to spring, the trail comes alive with a burst of colors and renewed vitality. Rhododendron forests paint the hillsides with vibrant colors of red, pink, and white, creating a breathtaking contrast against the backdrop of snow-capped peaks. The weather is mild and pleasant, making it an ideal time for trekking with clear skies and panoramic views of iconic Himalayan giants like Machapuchare and Annapurna South. The trail is covered with blooming wildflowers, and the lush greenery returns to the landscape, providing a feast for the senses. Spring is also a time of celebration for the local communities, with various festivals and cultural events that trekkers may have the chance to witness and participate in.

Mardi Himal Trek in monsoon season (Jun - Aug)

Mardi Himal Trail during the monsoon season, from June to August, introduces adventurers to a unique and challenging experience amidst the lush, rain-soaked landscapes of the Annapurna region. While the monsoon brings heavy rainfall, transforming the terrain into a green paradise, it also poses challenges such as slippery trails and the possibility of occasional landslides. The clouds spinning around the peaks add a mystical atmosphere to the journey, occasionally parting to reveal glimpses of the surrounding mountains. Despite the weather challenges, trekkers are rewarded with a sense of solitude, as the trails are less crowded compared to other seasons. The monsoon season also provides a unique opportunity to witness the powerful force of nature and the resilience of the local flora and fauna.
