Mardi Himal region is the best place for travelers and trekkers who are looking for a short expedition for about 8 days – which is relatively shorter time you will take to ascend Annapurna Base Camp. Located at a peaceful area of Annapurna region, route to Mardi Himal is filled with vibrant forests, vast farmlands, cultural villages, and fast-flowing rivers. Whilst walking through the route, you will witness scenic view of magnificent mountain ranges such as Annapurna, Mardi, Machhapuchre, and Himchuli. The route, however, is not as easy – it is wet and slippery until the Mardi Base Camp. So, you got to be careful while walking. The trek route of Mardi is not as commercial as Annapurna trek route or Everest trek route. There are few tea houses and lodges on the way. Since it is a short trek, those accommodations are enough to cover up your thirst, hunger, and rest.
