19 APRIL – 01 MAY 2018
The Mardi Himal trek is a relatively new route located in the Annapurna region. It ‘officially’ opened in 2012 and has yet to command large crowds like other treks in the region. A richly diverse trek it takes you through beautiful forested areas, through to rocky mountain terrain and several base camps which may have snow depending on the time of year you visit.
Mardi Himal is located to the east of the Annapurna Base camp virtually under the spectacular Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) mountain. The trek goes through quiet stone built villages and past wonderful rhododendron forests blooming in many different colours in the spring. The forest path continues until about 3,300 m. when the trail takes on a rugged mountain setting with spectacular views of Mardi Himal, Machhapuchhre and Annapurna South. At Low Camp there is one of the best views of Machhapuchhre anywhere in Nepal. Above this at 3580m is High Camp which again offers spectacular views overlooking Annapurna Base camp. Further along you reach Mardi Himal Base camp where you have views overlooking all of the Annapurna range.
The Promise Nepal Charity trek will be led by Mr. Pertemba Sherpa and will take place on 19 APRIL – 01 MAY 2018.
