Mardi Himal Base camp trek - 8 days

Mardi Himal Base camp trek - 8 days

This trek takes you all the way to base of Mardi Himal (5587m) on the Annapurna Himalayan range. A total wilderness and short with fully supported camping trek  is somewhat best opportunity for stunning view of Mardi Himal, Annapurna and Fish tail. This is one best camping and photogenic trek of the region.

Situated just east of the Annapurna Base Camp trek,, the Mardi Himal trek is a hidden gem, as few trekkers make their way to Mardi Himal’s Base Camp, spectacularly situated at the base of Mardi Himal and the beautiful and imposing Machapuchhre or Fishtail. The trail winds along small paths through ancient rhododendron forests, until you climb out at around 3300 m. Here, the landscape changes quite abruptly with amazing views of Mardi Himal, Machapuchhre, Annapurna South and Hiunchuli.

From High Camp (3580m) you can climb to the base camp in about  3 to 4 hours trek that offers one of  spectacular close up views of the entire Annapurna Range. If you are fit enough, you can hike to hight camp further.
