Trip Outline

Honestly, we can never get tired of this view! This is from the Mardi Himal Trek, one of the famous treks in the Annapurna region. The trek takes you through colorful rhododendron forests, at the end of which await stunning landscapes, amazing hillsides, and villages with beautiful rice terraces. Mardi Himal Trek not only offers a breathtaking panorama of Mt Machhapuchhre, Mt Dhaulagiri, Mt Hiunchuli and the entire Annapurna range, but is also an opportunity for you to learn about Gurung and Magar cultures.
