Mardi Himal is the most southern peak of the Annapurna range. It is the lowest and least climbed peak and separates the southwest ridge of fishtail as a separate mass at right angles.and is best seen from the south. The southwest face of the mountain has three precise ridges rising from the rock walls and separated by hanging glaciers. The east face is separated from the fishtail ridge by a col at 5,200m. Basil Goodfellow drew the attention of western climbers with his first photographs of Mardi Himal in 1953, and the mountain received its first ascent in 1961 through the East Flank, which is the only route so far.

Mardi Himal, lying less than fifteen miles north of beautiful Pokhara city, is the lowest and perhaps the least climbed or visited of the trekking peaks in Nepal. This trip begins from Dhampus Phadi, the sight of beautiful mountains, sparkling rivers, and lush green terraced fields. It then continues through beautiful forests, interesting villages and valleys, the cultural diversity being the main attraction of this trek. The valleys and ridges south of Mardi Himal are steep and heavily wooded with bamboo and rhododendron. Alpine pastures above the forest provide a good habitat for wildlife and varieties of vegetation. The normal climbing route to the summit of Mardi Himal passes through this col. The Mardi Himal summit offers a splendid view of the Annapurna Range and the Machhapuchhare (Mt. Fishtail). Mardi Himal Peak Climbing combines all the best elements of a Himalayan expedition. This trip is strenuous and demands that each participant be well versed in alpine snow climbing skills. It is an excellent way to explore the culture of Nepal and ascend two Himalayan peaks in the safest possible way.

The Mardi Himal Peak Climbing trip will end at Ghachok with a drive back to Pokhara. We at “Nepal Mother House Treks & Expedition” are more than happy to design your Climbing trip with our experienced climbing guides and expert staff for your complete experience.
