Annapurna Base Camp Trek - 15 Days

Annapurna Peak

Mardi Himal Trek (4500m) is an ideal choice for those adventure lovers who are looking for an off-beaten path trekking experience in Himalaya. It is the lowest and perhaps the least visited trekking peak in Nepal. This trek routs us quietest parts of the Annapurna region of Nepal, leading up to Mardi Himal Base Camp and finally the high camp. The trek takes us throughout the forest, typical villages, valleys, terraced farms, dazzling rivers and the amazing views of the Annapurna, Machhapuchre (Fishtail in Nepali) and Hiunchuli mountains. Another benefit of this trekking route is that the trail makes a small circuit up to the base camp of Mardi Himal so that we don’t have to backtrack over the same terrain. During the trek, we stay in teahouses (lodges), try local food, appreciate the excellent hill and mountain landscape; and marvel at the panoramic views of the massive Himalayan mountains including Annapurna, Machhapuchre, Hiunchuli and Mardi Himal and conclude the trip with sightseeing of Kathmandu city.
