Mardi Himal Trekking starts from Deurali in Pokhara and passes through romantic villages, terraced fields and through dense rhododendron, pine and orchid forests. The woods here are pristine and unspoiled

The trek begins in Pokhara, from where you will drive for 30 minutes to Kande. Along the route, you'll pass the Himalayan viewpoint, also known as Australian Camp. The trek leads through small twisting roads through magnificent rhododendron forests until you emerge at an elevation of roughly 3,300 meters. Throughout the trip, you will stay in small guesthouses and homestays along the way, savoring local cuisine while admiring the breathtaking scenery. You'll also be treated to panoramic vistas of gigantic mountains such as the less-climbed Mardi Himal, Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, and the sacred Peak Machapuchare.

From High Camp (3,580 m), it takes around 3-4 hours to reach Mardi Himal Base Camp, which provides superb close-up views of the entire Annapurna massif.
