7 Days Mardi Himal Trek is a short trip to Mardi Himal arranged in the Annapurna region which begins from Pokhara. Mardi Himal Trek gives a pleasant and overpowering experience to the uneven climate-drenched perspective on green slopes, snowcapped mountains, and strolls into the perfect backwoods of exquisite rhododendron and oak. In the preliminary, we stroll through the high edge with the consistent perspective on Annapurna mountain reaches and Dhaulagiri at the west, Mt.Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) at east, and Manaslu mountain range in the east. Mardi Himal is situated underneath Mt. Machhapuchhre which is one of the illegal mountain and unclimbed tops up until now.
