Mardi Trek


The Mardi trek delivers breathtaking views of the Mt. Dhaulagiree (8167 m) and Annapurna range, including; Annapurna I (8,091 m), Annapurna South (7,219 m), Hiunchuli (6,441 m), Annapurna III (7,555 m). Gangapurna (7,454 m), towering Mt Fishtail or Machhapuchhre (6993 m) and Mardi peak (5,553 m). It is a relatively new and less crowded trekking route, making it perfect for those seeking a peaceful and off-the-beaten-path experience in the Himalayas compared to the popular ABC and Poon Hill treks. The Mardi Himal trek is a great choice for trekkers, who prefer a quieter and more peaceful journey. The trek offers a unique blend of natural beauty and cultural immersion, as you pass through traditional Nepalese villages and interact with friendly locals along the way.
The route takes you through less known beautiful part of Aannpurna, passing rhododendron forests, seasonal flora and fauna, charming tea houses, providing a unique and less crowded experience and the Mardi view point offers a peaceful and serene atmosphere.
Additionally, during winter, the Mardi trek can still be enjoyed by those who are well-prepared with the right gear and equipment for colder temperatures.

When is the best time to do Mardi Trek in general ?

While, the best times to go walking and trekking to Mardi are in the spring, summer(late February – May, June, July) and autumn (late September-Mid December).

Autumn; The best time of year to do Mardi trek is supposedly in the autumn. With dry weather and crisp, clear skies, the mountain views are at their best. Since the summer monsoon, the countryside has been lush and green.

The gorgeous magnolia and rhododendron will be in bloom, even though the skies may be cloudier than in the fall. If you want to trek in Mardi in the both fall and spring time, you should book well in advance because the popular trails can get crowded during this time and flights fill up fast.
