Mardi Himal Base Camp Trek is a trail off the beaten track within the Annapurna Region. It takes you to the base of Mardi Himal and very close to the sacred Mt Macchapuchere (Fishtail). The trek starts at the foothills of Mt Macchapuchere at the village of Kade where we slowly ascend to the village of Potana. We continue through lush rhododendron forests on less crowded trails with great views of Himalayan peaks up to Base camp. Mardi Himal Base Camp Trek offers you to go by the less visited trails through lush forests and rich in culture, to see amazing close up views of Annapurna, Macchapuchere and other Himalayan peaks. This makes for a memorable adventure holiday in Nepal.
