The freshly unlocked route with the least exertion which can be completed in a short span of time and can experience the remarkable journey in Annapurna region with the least number of tourist is Mardi Himal Trek.

In 2012, Mardi Himal Trek is “officially” unbarred which was forbidden to trek before. Grotesque Mardi Himal Trek is based just east of the most mythical trekking harbor of Nepal, the Annapurna Base Camp trek. This trek is known as the hidden paragon in the Annapurna region.

Mardi Himal Trek is an optimal recommend for those who are seeking for an ‘off the beaten path’ trekking practice in the sheer parts of the Annapurna region. Also, point out as another way to break out from the congested treks of Annapurna with eye-catching views.

This trek grants portray the view of Annapurna, Manaslu, Machhapuchre, and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges.  Mardi Himal base camp, Jhinu Hot Spring, and Ghandruk village are the dominant temptation of this trek.

This route is also known as an eco-tourism track that goes through dense forests brimming with Rhododendrons and other vegetation. The journey takes you off the crushed track, which has the essence of exploration and adventure. The charm of the trek is spotless mountains glimpse, stunning valleys, and united local culture and graze hills.

As we ascend through traditional villages and pristine oak to a high-altitude campground, the great rice fields and the indigo glaciers of the Annapurna sanctuary bulwarks remain further down the trajectory. But the descent is through a lush valley and picturesque villages on the bank of the river Mardi, which is a separate route.

Best time to do Mardi Himal Trek

If you are edging Mardi Himal trekking, then monsoon season would be imperfect. The autumn (September, October, November) and spring (March, April, and May) is assuredly best season to visit. The climate is bright and pleasant with exceptional views.

If you want to bypass crowds and have fun alone with the beauty of nature then take this journey during the winter season. Winter is deliberate as the good season for this trek. In general March to November is the perfect month of the year to visit.

The trek to Mardi Himal is not well noticeable and reconciliation due to which well-known adviser required along the way. This trip needs knowledge of the tracks and mountain experience as certain sections are risky.
