About this trip


The Mardi Himal Package offers an all-inclusive trekking experience with a little added luxury. Great for those trekkers looking to experience the true vibrancy of the Nepalese Himachal region, with time to relax and unwind at the end of the trek. 

Situated just east of one of the most popular treks of Nepal (the Annapurna Base Camp trek), the Mardi Himal trek is a hidden gem. Few trekkers make their way to the Base Camp, spectacularly situated at the base of Mardi Himal and the impressive Machapuchhre (Fish Tail).

The trail goes along small winding paths, through magical rhododendron forests until you climb out of the forest at an elevation around 3,300 m. The terrain changes quite abruptly into a rugged high mountain landscape, with amazing views of Mardi Himal, Machapuchre, Annapurna South and Hiunchuli.

From High Camp you will climb up to Mardi Himal Base Camp (4,500 m) in about 3-4 hours, which offers spectacular close up views of the entire Annapurna Range.

The Trekking with Purpose (TWP) travel style creates a trekking experience that will leave you with less time planning and more time experiencing the wonders of the World. Every adventure booked through TWP sees a percentage of the income going back into the local community. So if you’re a wanderlust seeker who’s ready to take on a new adventure, without doing all the hard work, then you’re in the right place!


A massive thank you to Andrew and Lewis for organising the Coast to Coast UK walk and safely guiding us throughout the amazing and memorable journey. We walked with a fantastic, fun and inspirational group of people. The route was spectacular with the scenery breathtaking and constantly changing. The whole Coast to Coast trek experience was brilliant. We highly recommend Trekking with Purpose.
