Mardi Himal Peak Climbing (5587 M) is one of the smaller peaks among trekking peaks of Nepal which lies 15 miles north of Pokhara at Annapurna region. Mt. Mardi Himal is least climbed peak which separates the southwest ridge of Machhapuchhre as a separate mass at right angles to the ridge and is best seen from the south. The southwest face of the mountain has three well-defined ridges rising from rock buttresses and separated by hanging glaciers. This climbing trip can be combined with trekking in remote areas through dense forest of bamboo and rhododendron and pasture land away from human civilization and exploring those areas with real adventure. The summit of this Mardi Himal Peak offers splendid vistas of the Annapurna Range, the Fishtail Mountain, Mt Dhaulagiri and Mt. Machhapuchhre and the valleys down with rhododendron forest.
To reach Mardi Himal Peak Climbing , you drive about 6/7 hour from Kathmandu valley to Pokhara and again from there you start our trek through Deurali, beautiful villages and forested areas to this Mardi Base camp and climb it. You will be passing through agricultural area, green paddy fields, thick rhododendron forests, and small ancient villages with typical Nepali lifestyle untouched by any modernization, beautiful snow caped mountain view of Annapurna Range, Machhapuchhre, Dhaulagiri, Mt. Mardi and many more are its highlights too. Since there is no any sign of accommodation facilities, you will be making bed and meal by yourself which will be a whole new fun.
