If you are looking for a newly opened and untouched route in Nepal then, Mardi Himal Trek is best suited for you. Officially opened in 2012, this trek is a combination of both adventure and serenity. Completed within 5-10 days (with basic tea-house or camping), Mardi Himal Trek offers the trekkers the dramatic panoramas of Mardi Himal, Annapurna, Machhapuchre and Himchuli ranges. It is an assorted trek that makes the trekkers experience the beauty of flora and fauna along the route, walk via verdant forests, massive landscapes, eye catching Himalayan peaks and Rhododendron forests

It starts at Kande after 1 hours driving from Pokhara then the trek goes through the beautiful rhododendron forest at the beginning but eventually the trail transforms into the steep rugged trail dominated by the hard rock formation. The trail surges along the ridge and after these exhausting but fulfilling long walks, you finally reach the Mardi Himal Base Camp from where you get the amazing panoramic views of mountains. And on the way back you will get a change to pass via beautiful villages like Lwang, Sidhing and Phedi again.
