Mardi Himal is a challenging and beautiful trek in the Annapurna region that offers breathtaking views of the Himalayan mountain range. It’s a lesser-known route compared to the famous Everest Base Camp trek or Annapurna Circuit trek.

Mardi Himal used to be the lesser-known trek in Annapurna Sanctuary to see quite a lot of people hiking this route was a bit of a surprise for us. There are still fewer people on this route than on the Poon Hill, Annapurna Base Camp, or Annapurna Circuit but it’s definitely not as off the beaten trek as it used to be.
