Seriously within a few days of walking, we can reach on top of Mardi Himal viewpoint and the Mt. Fishtail will be just in front of us a mirror. Fell higher and everything is lower than you. The best short trek to Mardi Himal starts from Pokhara and ends at Pokhara. There are few people who have heard about Mardi Himal Trek because Ghorepani Poonhill has been always highlighted.

So why to choose Short Mardi Himal Trek from Pokhara? As we already mentioned the excellent view of Mt. Fishtail but not only the Fishtail because we can see the amazing view of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Baraha Shikhar, Singu Chuli, Annapurna I and obviously the Mardi Himal Peak. Another main part of this trek is how the landscapes change dramatically. Walking from the dense sub-tropical jungles and walking on the ridge after a few hours feels like someone is pulling by the ropes.

Rugged Trails Nepal one of the best selling yoga retreats in Nepal is Mardi Himal which starts from Pokhara. We choose this trail because it’s peaceful and has a special kind of energy that we can feel during the excursion. During the Springtime, we can see colorful Rhododendrons and it looks very pretty. The short trek to Mardi Himal always beautiful because of landscapes that change by the season from greenery to the dry but still look colorful. During the winter Mid Feb to Mid March it may not possible to reach up to Mardi Himal high camp or the viewpoint because of heavy snowfall.

Simply this trek is Rugged Trails Nepal guides favorite trek too and they haven’t seen the disappointment in the client's face after joining for this trek. Nature can’t describe by words but check our Mardi Himal Trek videos and pictures which makes you choose this trip. From Badal Danda (Clouds hills) the view is spectacular and we had to pick the overnight places with the photography view.

Generally, from 4-5 years kids to 75 - 80 years old people had joined with us and we haven’t faced such an altitude sickness problem. But physical fitness is most important to trek in Nepal weather it’s Poon hill or Everest Base Camp. If you are worried and feel like you can’t reach on top of viewpoint (4500 M / 14,764)  and to Mardi Base camp (4,500 m) 14,764 ft then from lower elevation also we can the beautiful views.

Food can order from the menu and the tea houses decent but also provide nice service. Warm blankets or sleeping bags will be provided by Rugged Trails Nepal guides. Further details and question feel free to write to us we are always happy to get back to you with the information.

2 Days Mardi Himal Trek from Pokhara will be arranged, for more details write us.
