Mardi Himal Base camp trek is one of the best cultural and an undisturbed trekking in Annapurna Himalayan range. This new opened trek route is good alternative to the touristy Annapurna Base Camp trekking trail nearby.

The Mardi Himal Trek is one of the exotic and interesting treks that offer a paradise for nature lovers and adventures trekkers. This is relatively easy trek so; it is suitable for all aged travelers. We walk through the beautiful village, astonishing landscape, and beautiful rhododendron forest, which will be unforgettable lifetime experience.

This is the least visited trek in Annapurna where we will explore the local culture and tradition along with the amazing mountain views of Machhapuchre, Annapurna, Hiunchuli and of course Mardi Himal.

It is now likely to do this trekking as a tea house trek. Spring & autumn are the best seasons to do this trek.

(5/5)

My two sisters and I did Mardi Himal trek with Gyan. It was very amazing. We start our trekking on March 02 and ends on 11 March. First day we felt quit hard due to very bad weather and a bit tired as we directly fly from Kathmandu. But second day we saw very nice view from Deurali. We all enjoyed every day with our guide and porters. DHA gave us good guide, porter& good hotel in Kathmandu and Pokhara. We advise to anyone traveling Nepal to book all activities with this company. Thank you Suman and Hari for making our trip memorable!!!

We had amazing time in Nepal. Everything was great on the trek. Mardi Himal is best trek for those who want to go through forests. The whole trip was very well organized, and both guide and porter provided excellent service and were friendly and helpful. Suman and his agency is first class and best in Nepal.

We travelled to Himalayan reason in Nepal. We did Mardi Himal 9 days trek with Dream Heaven Adventure. Our trek was very nice, our guide was very helpful, he managed everything in mountain very well and, in Kathmandu Suman organized everything. Our trek was brilliant; guide and porter both were very outstanding and have great information about the mountains route. We will definitely come back to travel to EBC with DHA next time.
