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

So why choose the Short Mardi Himal Trek from Pokhara? As we already mentioned, the excellent view of Mt. Fishtail is not only the Fishtail because we can also see the amazing views 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 in Pokhara. We chose this trail because it’s peaceful and has a special kind of energy that we can feel during the excursion. During the spring, we can see colorful rhododendrons, and they look very pretty. The short trek to Mardi Himal is always beautiful because of the landscapes that change by the season from greenery to dryness but still look colorful. During the winter, from mid-February to mid-March, it may not be possible to reach Mardi Himal High Camp or the viewpoint because of heavy snowfall.

Simply put, 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 be described by words, but check out our Mardi Himal Trek videos and pictures to see why you chose 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-year-old kids to 75-80 years old, people have joined us, and we haven’t faced such an altitude sickness problem. But physical fitness is most important to trekking in Nepal, whether it’s Poon Hill or Everest Base Camp. If you are worried and feel like you can’t reach the viewpoint (4500 M / 14,764)  and to Mardi Base Camp (4,500 m/14,764 ft), then from a lower elevation we can also see the beautiful views.

Food can be ordered from the menu, and the tea houses are decent but also provide nice service. The guides from Rugged Trails Nepal will provide warm blankets or sleeping bags. For further details and questions, feel free to write to us; we are always happy to get back to you with the information.

A 3-day Mardi Himal Trek from Pokhara will be arranged; for more details, follow the link. 3 Days Mardi Himal Trek

  • One word Just AMAZING

    - Jackie Sophia, Netherlands

    I enjoyed the hike every second. I chose the right trek with the right company, and my guide, Indra, got 10 out of 10. 

  • Great experience!

    - Gifts, Lithuania

    The guide (Yogi) was excellent, and the view was amazing! We had only 3 days, and I feel we managed to get the Himalaya experience during these days.

  • Beautifully organized 4 days mardi himal trek

    - Tania Marie, Australia

    I had a great trip and we had nice clear views which am grateful for. Indra (my guide) was great, he obviously has a lot of experience, let me go my pace, and seemed to always be looking out for me. Very attentive! He was really helpful I felt very comfortable trekking with him. Very knowledgeable, keeping an eye on the view, etc so I could go out and get a good picture of that kind of thing.
