Nature

Mardi Himal (5587m/18331ft), lying less than fifteen miles north of Pokhara, is the most southerly mountain of the Annapurna range. Among the four trekking peaks in Annapurna region, Mardi Himal is a five day slog up to the Mardi Khola to approach the peak. It is the lowest and perhaps the least climbed or visited of the trekking peaks in Nepal. Taking on this trek we get the sight of beautiful mountain views, sparkling rivers and lush green terraced fields. Mardi Himal trek takes us through beautiful forests, interesting villages and valleys, the cultural diversity being the main attraction of this trek.
The attention of western mountaineers was first drawn to Mardi Himal by the photographs of Basil Goodfellow, taken in 1953. However, it was not until 1961 that the mountain received its first ascent. Jimmy Roberts, with two Sherpas, first climbed to the summit by a route on its west flank.

Further east beyond the Marshyangdi are the triple giants of Manaslu (8156m), Peak 29 (7835m) and Himalchuli (7879m).
