Trip Overview of Mardi Himal Short Trek

Mardi Himal Short trek is the shortest trail to reach the close of Himalaya. Trekkers can return Pokhara by entering the Mardi base camp (4500 m)within five days. The trail is being famous for a beautiful view and fantastic nature and culture. The less used and less crowded trail gives immense peaceful experience. Mardi Himal lies within the Annapurna region with an elevation of 5587m. Due to the shorter distance and exceptional views, Mardi Himal base camp Trek is getting popular day by day. If you have not much time to reach either ABC or EBC, then Mardi Himal Trek 5 days is a better option.

The 5 days Mardi trek starts from Pokhara and also ends at Pokhara. The trekking starts from Pokhara by boating in the beautiful Phewa lake. After boating and spending time there, we will move toward Kande. With amazing views of show capped mountain on the trail, we will reach Pothana. And we are moving forward from there on the way from Low Camp to High Camp.

We will be beautiful mountains, forests, valleys, lakes, waterfalls, and so forth. Within two days of the trek, you can experience a picturesque mountainous environment immersed view of green hills, snow-capped mountains, and walks into the pristine forest of stunning rhododendron and oak. On the way to  Mardi himal trek, the sight of Annapurna mountain ranges, Dhaulagiri, Mt.Machhapuchhre (Fishtail), and Manaslu mountain range will be a fantastic moment.

Enjoy the best view from high camp

Mardi Himal high camp is situated at an elevation of 3850 m height.this is the highest sleeping point of the trek. Annapurna South seems near enough to throw a rock at, and Machhapuchhere itself close enough to touch.

The bunch of photographic scenes on the trail gives a pleasant experience. Sometimes trekkers have to delete some photos from memory cards for taking photographs at the Mardi Himal Base camp as trekkers have clicked plenty of pictures on the way. The Mardi Himal short trek route will give you a great place to get a taste of the real thing if you are light on alpine experience. If you are looking for a little trekking experience, get ready to experience the magic of this trekking holiday.
