The Mardi Himal Base Camp Trek, situated on the eastern frontier of the Annapurna Base Camp, stands as an awe-inspiring journey within the Annapurna region. Initiated in 2012, this trail unveils breathtaking vistas of the Annapurna Himalayan Range, featuring majestic peaks like Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Mt. Annapurna I (8,091m), Annapurna South (7,219m), Mt. Hiunchuli (6,441m), and Mt. Fishtail (6,997m).

This trek offers a passage through stunning landscapes, captivating forests, and culturally rich hamlets steeped in heritage.
