Mardi Himal trek is a new trekking route. It is better to spend three days above the tree line of Mardi Himal amid the close views of Machhapuchhare Himal (the Fishtail Mountain). Trekkers can take the views of sunrises with sun bursting into the tips of Machhapuchhare Himal and the Annapurna Himal.

The trekkers can spend two nights at high camp (3,800m) acclimatizing and they can walk further up the ridge until they can see into the glacial basin between Macchapuchhare and Annapurna where Annapurna base camp is located. The Mardi Himal trek gives trekkers with the most amazing sense of having been right up on the roof of the world amongst some of its highest mountains.
