Trekking Destinations >Annapurna > Mardi Himal Trek

The Annapurna region of Nepal, a couple of hundred kilometres northwest of Kathmandu, is reknowned for its blend of undisturbed nature, spectacular mountain views, and embracing culture. The Annapurna Circuit is typically rated as one of the "top 20" trekking experiences worldwide...Now that is an understatement!

This trek is one of the rarely visited trails in Nepal. The itinerary is designed to provide some exceptional mountain views, to get away from the more popular "teahouse" trails and into the forests and villages that have not felt the impact of tourism. A trek to Mardi Himal (5588m) offers scenic mountain views of Mt. Annapurna (8091m), Mt. Fishtail (6997m) and Mt. Hiunchuli (6441m).
