Mardi Himal Yoga Trek explores majestic spirituality, nature, and Himalayan view in the less trodden Mardi Himal region of Annapurna range. Yoga, nature and the Himalayas throughout this trip bring you an experience that you will never forget. You can simply call it your trek of a lifetime. Our 8 days Mardi Himal Yoga Trekking starts and finishes in Pokhara.

What you will find more amazing is the elevation gain without trouble in just a few days. Start the trek from about 1,000 meters above sea level and reach 4,500 meters at Mardi Himal Base Camp in just five days that you do nowhere else in the Annapurna region of the Himalaya. And imagine the joy of practicing yoga and meditation in this wonderful natural surroundings. It’s just pure bliss.

The first few days of lush forest walk with occasional yet magnificent views of the snow-capped mountains are to experience a spiritually uplifting, peaceful nature walk in the middle hills stretch parallel to the Himalayan peaks. The walk traverses a peaceful trail mostly through rhododendron forest in addition to several other trees like chestnut, schima wallichii, etc. It feels a different world to listen to the chirping of birds, buzzing of cicadas and whistling of breeze while walking through a lush forest.

Deeply immersed in the practice of yoga, meditation and breathing help to make the trip even more wonderful. The first few days of the nature walk are highly rewarded with breathtaking views of the mountains in Annapurna range, from Fishtail to Annapurna South and much more in between. Once you reach the viewpoint and walk towards the base camp, you can see the deep and beautiful gorge towards Annapurna Base Camp much lower than where you will be standing. The final ridge walking to the base camp brings unprecedented Himalayan views to you where you can mix some yoga postures; sit on meditation and practice some breathing to make the moment touch your heart and leave a lasting memory. Check Mardi Himal Yoga Trek video for views and the places.
