Overview

The Annapurna region's Mardi Himal trekking is a short but spectacular trek that is rising in popularity every day. The Mardi Himal Trek explores some of the Annapurna region's lesser-known regions, bringing adventurers closer to Mt. Fishtail and providing spectacular views of the Annapurna range's other peaks, including Mardi Himal.

This trek is a great combination of tea house and homestay treks, providing a rich cultural immersion into Nepalese culture and hospitality. It's a beautiful and quiet walk where you can get away from the crowds while still seeing the stunning Himalayan sights. This is a wonderful and quiet trek to get closer to the Annapurna region's mighty mountains. It's an excellent choice for those looking for a short, peaceful, and spectacular Himalayan trek.
