This relatively new route is a hidden gem, providing trekkers with a less crowded alternative to the popular Annapurna and Everest regions. The trek is ideal for those seeking adventure, natural beauty, and a taste of the rich Nepali culture.

Starting from the vibrant city of Pokhara, the trek winds through lush forests, terraced fields, and traditional Gurung and Magar villages. The trail offers stunning panoramic views of some of the highest peaks in the world, including Machapuchare (Fishtail), Annapurna South, and Hiunchuli. As you ascend, the landscape transitions from dense forests of rhododendron and oak to alpine meadows and rocky terrains, culminating at the Mardi Himal Base Camp at 4,500 meters.

Trekkers will pass through the beautiful villages of Landruk, Forest Camp, Low Camp, and High Camp, each offering unique cultural experiences and breathtaking scenery. The hospitality of the local people adds a special charm to the trek, making it a culturally enriching experience.

One of the highlights of the trek is the Mardi Himal Ridge, which provides an up-close view of the majestic Machapuchare, considered sacred by the locals and thus unclimbed. The ridge walk is exhilarating, offering a sense of adventure and awe-inspiring vistas.

This trek is moderately challenging, making it suitable for trekkers with a reasonable level of fitness and some prior trekking experience.
