Trip Overview

The four-day Mardi Himal walk in the Annapurna region is strenuous and stunning and provides amazing vistas of the Himalayan mountain range. Compared to the well-known Everest Base Camp walk or the Annapurna Circuit trek, it is a lesser-known route.

After completing the Poon Hill trip, we began the Mardi Himal trek at Ghandruk. Like on other trekking routes, there are a variety of starting and finishing points inside the Annapurna Sanctuary. It was rather common to combine the route with one of the other treks in the sanctuary, as the majority of the trekkers we encountered had completed the Poon Hill or Annapurna Base Camp climb before the Mardi Himal.

It came as a bit of a surprise to us to see so many people trekking the Mardi Himal trail, which was formerly one of the less popular treks in the Annapurna Sanctuary. This journey is no longer as off the beaten path as it once was, but it is still less crowded than the Poon Hill, Annapurna Base Camp, or Annapurna Circuit.

Trip Highlight

  • The majority of the trail is on a range, so every step will afford you a stunning view.
