Trip Fact

Trip Duration 11 Days
Destination Nepal

Mardi Himal Trek is the only trek so close to Pokhara which will take you for the closest interactions with the Himalayas that you have been always admiring. Walking most of the time on the forested and alpine ridge that stands in between the massive, Annapurna and a beautiful Pokhara valley is incomparably beautiful and adventurous.

The classic way to reach there for Nepalese is to drive till siding and make a straight climb up to low or high camp, but due to safety reason, we recommend you to take another route, where you have to drive for about 45 min till Kande and start your journey comfortably sensible way.
