What makes the Mardi Himal Trek special?

The Mardi Himal Trek is unique in that it provides a less crowded trekking experience in Nepal’s Annapurna region. The Mardi Himal Trеk combines breathtaking mountain views, cultural immersion, and a sense of adventure in a less-crowded and off-the-beaten-path trekking route. It is a hidden gem that provides a one-of-a-kind and unforgettable trekking experience.

The breathtaking views of the snow-capped mountains, including Mount Machhapuchhrе (Fishtail), Annapurna South, and Hiunchuli, are one of the Mardi Himal Trek’s highlights. The trail takes you through beautiful rhododendron forests, charming villages, and terraced fields, giving you a taste of the local culture and way of life. Another unique feature of the Mardi Himal Trek is the ability to reach the Mardi Himal Base Camp, which provides breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding peaks. The base camp, located at 4,500 meters, provides a sense of accomplishment and adventure.

The trek is also relatively short in comparison to others, making it ideal for those with limited time or trekking experience. The trail is well-marked and not particularly difficult, making it accessible to a wide range of hikers.

The Best Time to Visit Mardi Himal:

The Mardi Himal Trek is one of Nepal’s shortest hiking routes, with elevations reaching 4,400 meters. You can make the trek all year. The fall and spring seasons are ideal for hiking Mardi Himal.

Super gave trek gedaan, helemaal op maat gemaakt voor onze wensen! We zijn naar de Mardi Himal geweest een hele mooie ervaring.
De gids wist super veel over het land, cultuur etc. en kon ons daar veel over vertellen.
Daarnaast was de gids ontzettend flexibel en luisterde hij goed naar onze wensen.

In Nepal ging ik een lieftallige vriendin opzoeken en haar man. Mijn eerste Nepal ervaring en hier hoort natuurlijk een trekking bij. Via Asian Heritage hebben we samen een zes-daagse trekking door het Himalaya gebergte gedaan. De trekking naar Mardi Himal was divers en veelzijdig. Indrukwekkende plaatjes, unieke uitzichten en zeer divers landschap. Gids Shiva en porter Gyan waren erg fijn om erbij te hebben. Enorm vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Ik heb enorm genoten van alle dagen, de bijzonder vriendelijke mensen waar we bij hebben mogen overnachten, de unieke sfeer en de rust. Asian Heritage is een enorme aanrader. Je hoeft nergens aan te denken, het is allemaal voor je geregeld. Dank voor de mooie trekking die ik met jullie heb mogen maken.

Together with Asian Heritage we created a trek that would suit me and my family, I am very thankful for this service because now we I got to combine some villages and the rural areas of the Mardi Himal trek in the amount of seven days that we got to trek. We made it all the way to the top with the help of our very good English speaking and caring guide Shiva. He made us feel very comfortable during the trek. Thank you very much!
