Mardi Himal Trek
Mardi Himal Trek is one of the newest treks to be opened in the Annapurna region – and is ideal for anyone looking for a short and easy trek. Mardi Himal (5587m) is situated just east of the Annapurna Base Camp and is known as the hidden treasure of the Annapurna Region – the ‘Unseen Jewel’ –making it perfect for those who want to avoid the crowds and experience trekking off the beaten path.
This moderate trek is an adventure that covers amazing glacial valleys, landscapes, dense forests, and stunning snow-capped peaks. Known as the ‘Ecotourism Trail’, this trek passes through the heavily forested area and wilderness zone of the mountains. Starting at Kande, the landscape begins in the high rocky mountains and soon has you walking through forests filled with rhododendrons, pines, juniper, bamboo, and oaks.
This trek also gives our travelers the chance to experience the unique tradition and culture of Nepal, as we come across several villages like Siding, Lwang, and Ghale land, as well as terraced farms and sacred rivers. Along with the locals, throughout the trek, you will take in stunning views of some of the most famous mountains and mountain ranges in the world, such as the Annapurna range, Dhaulagiri (8167m), Manaslu mountain range, Mount Machhapuchhre (6988m), Mt. Hiunchuli (6441m) and of course Mardi Himal (5587m).

Vi er en aktiv familie med to sønner på 11 og 13 år. Vi har altid rejst meget og vil gerne have fuld fart på vores ferier. Jeg havde egentlig aldrig tænkt på Nepal som et land hvor man rejste hen med børn, men da et ungt familiemedlem kom hjem og fortalte om sine oplevelser i landet blev vi alligevel nysgerrige og begyndte at undersøge hvad man egentlig kunne gøre sammen med børn i Nepal. Vi fandt My Everest Trips hjemmeside og indså hurtigt at der var masser af aktiviteter der var velegnede for børn på vores alder.
Efter et par mails frem og tilbage med manageren fandt vi frem til et fint lille trek som knægtene sagtens ville kunne klare, nemlig Mardi Himal.
Mardi Himal trekket var et rigtigt godt valg, man får udfoldet sig fysisk, men det er ikke hårdere end at man også kan hygge sig mens man vandrer. Både vores guide og vores portere var utroligt opmærksomme på vores sønner, lavede sjov og spillede kort med dem. Det var virkelig dejligt at se den gensidige glæde der udspillede sig mellem dem, på trods af sprog og kultur forskelle og det havde en utrolig afsmittende effekt på os som forældre at vi bare kunne nyde turen i ro og mag.
Trekket bare var en del af vores ferie i Nepal og vi besøgte også Chitwan nationalpark, Pokhara og selvfølgelig Kathmandu med alle dertilhørende seværdigheder, men der hersker ingen tvivl om at Mardi Himal var turens højdepunkt.
Nepal er et rigtigt dejligt land at rejse i med børn. Vi mødte så meget velvilje og godhed over alt.
Vores tur var sammensat af My Everest Trip i samarbejde med os, så vi fik set et bredt spekter af dette vidunderlige land. Det hele var så fint tilrettelagt og planlagt på forhånd at vi ikke skulle bekymre os om noget som helst.
Jeg kan varmt anbefale at tage børnene med til Nepal og jeg kan i dén grad anbefale My Everest Trip.
Good itinerary, skilled staff, reasonable price, and great service provided by My Everest Trip and the manager Puru added so much to this Trek.
It is obvious that the safety and well-being of the clients are a top priority. During the whole trek, our guide and porters showed respect and kindness.
The daily walks between 4 and 6 hours leave you time to admire the gorgeous surroundings. The Mardi Himal trek sure is a nice trek and since we did this trek in the spring the blooming rhododendrons were at their peak. Being in the Himalayas region is always a pleasure and being with good people makes it more joyful.
I appreciate everything My Everest Trip did to make this a great trip and I highly recommend this company.
First trek in my Life
Puru recommended this trek to me as I was a first-time trekker and didn’t want to do the long and hard trek. This was a very good choice and Puru arranged everything so I did not have to worry about anything. He provided me with a very nice guide who always had my well-being in mind.
The Mardi Himal is a beautiful trek packed with gorgeous views and very nice trails to walk. My guide was very helpful in taking pictures with my camera and pointed out the good spots for pictures. It was obvious he did this trek many times, but he did not scatter over but told me many stories. When we returned to Pokhara after the trek I wanted an extra day in Pokhara to relax and explore the surroundings. This was no problem, I just contacted Puru and he made the arrangements in a very short time.
I will recommend the Mardi Himal trek, but most of all I will recommend My Everest Trip as they provide top service, makes you feel good taking care of and all the staff I met were good and kind people. I would love to do another trek with you guys again.
Thank you so much.
