Short and Best Trek in Nepal

The Mardi Himal Trek is one of the hidden gems when it comes to trekking in the Annapurna Region. Where most people would do the trek to Annapurna Base Camp, you have the opportunity to go around the corner of the map and get off the beaten track. Trekking to Mardi Himal Adventure takes you to the base camp of Mardi Himal. The Base camp, situated at an altitude of 4500 meters, right in the laps of Mardi Himal and Machhapuchhre (Fish Tail Mountain). The weather at Mardi Himal Base Camp can vary greatly depending on the season. In general, during the spring and autumn months, the weather tends to be more stable, with clear skies and mild temperatures. However, it is important to note that at higher altitudes, conditions can change rapidly. So, it is advisable to be prepared for sudden changes in weather patterns.

This is the shortest and best Trek in Nepal. On the Mardi Himal Trek, you get the views without the crowds. Expect authentic teahouses, stunning rhododendron forests, and the most terrific views of the Annapurna Mountain Range. You will get eye-to-eye with giants like Mardi Himal, Machhapuchhre, Annapurna South, and Hiuchuli. The Mardi Himal Trek is a moderate and newer trek compared to the Everest Base Camp Trek, but it is absolutely stunning. People of all ages can do this trek. Talking about the season, the peak season is in the Autumn and spring, just like in the case of other treks. The highest elevation that you will climb is 4500 m, but the highest elevation at which you will spend the night is 3580 m.
