  • Overview
  • Details Itinerary
One of the good-looking trekking route in Annapurna Area, "Mardi Himal" is truly adventurous for trekking peak climbing which lies less than 15 miles from Pokhara and is the most southerly peak of the Annapurna range. It is the lowest and the least climbed or visited peak. Photographs of Mardi Himal taken in 1953 by Baisl Goodfellow first drew the attention of western climbers, and Jimmy Roberts who, with two Sherpas, climbed to the summit by a route on its East face in 1961. The valleys and ridges south of Mardi Himal are steep and heavily wooded with bamboo and rhododendron. Obviously, the peak has superior view of the the Annapurna ranges and certainly a fantastic one of Machhapuchhare the better known as Fish Tail Peak. A small number of westerners visit the valleys and ridges south of Mardi Himal. They are steep sided and heavily wooded with bamboo and rhododendron. Above the forest high alpine pastures provide good grazing and a habitat for undisturbed wildlife. in spite of it lowly altitude the mountain evidently has a great deal of potential for those interested in small-scale exploratory mountaineering and the ridges, already mentioned, present palpable climbing challenges at a reasonable standard.
