About Group

Having been under the radar for many years, Mardi Himal Trek has finally started to get the recognition it deserves and the trail provides some of the best views of the picturesque Annapurna Massif and the ever-so-popular Machhapuchhre Peak. Apart from the obvious attraction of the massive Himalayan range, the possibility to witness the indeginous lifestyle, diverse biology, and the serene landscape are some of the other plus points of the trek.
