History of Mardi Himal (5,587 m / 18,330 feet)

Mardi Himal is at an elevation of 5,587 m / 18,330 feet. The history of Mardi Himal as a trekking peak is relatively recent, as it was only opened for trekking in 2012. Before that, the area was restricted for trekking purposes and was only open for mountaineering expeditions.

The first recorded ascent of Mardi Himal was made in 1961 by a team of British mountaineers. The team was led by British climber Jimmy Roberts and included two Sherpa climbers, Ang Nyima, and Kusang Sherpa. They climbed the peak via the southeast ridge, which is still the most popular route to the summit.

After the peak was opened for trekking in 2012, it quickly gained popularity among trekkers. It delivered a less crowded and more off-the-beaten-path experience in the Annapurna region. The trek to Mardi Himal Base Camp takes about a week and offers stunning views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges.

Today, Mardi Himal is considered one of the best trekking peaks in Nepal, attracting thousands of trekkers each year. The trek is known for its diverse landscapes, including lush forests, high-altitude meadows, and rocky ridges, as well as its breathtaking views of some of the highest peaks in the world.

The ascent of Machapuchare and Mardi Himal:

There is a beautiful history of how Mardi Himal came into existence. It dates back to 1957 when the British team led by Lieutenant Colonel Jimmy Roberts tried to climb Machapuchare Mountain. Machapuchare Peak which is  6,947 m (22,793 ft) is now very popularly known as MT. FISHTAIL. The shapely spire of Machapuchare is one of Nepal’s most striking sights.

A small expedition led by Lieutenant Colonel Jimmy Roberts and Wilfred Noyce had attempted to climb from its north ridge in 1957. However, the expedition had to be abandoned within 50m of its summit, either out of respect for the locals or due to the Sherpas’ refusal to carry on. After this attempt, the government prohibited further climbing on the mountain, so technically it remains unclimbed to date.

However, in the course of time, climbers on their quest to Machapuchae Peak discovered an anonymous peak which now is Mardi Himal. Mardi Himal was first climbed in 1961 by Colonel Basil Goodfellow, Chief Commander of the British troops.

Enchanting Mardi Himal Trek:

Not to mention, the impressive beauty, untouched trail, and magical rhododendron forest give you the taste of a genuine trekking feeling. Since the Mardi Himal trail was opened very recently the accommodation facility is quite basic. Despite the basic provisions of the tea houses in the region, it is worth visiting for its fascination.

It takes you to the exotic and fascinating trail through lush vibrant valleys. Furthermore, the alpine meadows, dense forests, series of waterfalls, and mesmerizing views of soaring peaks upon the skyline are sensational. Comparatively, It is suitable for anyone who wishes to taste the real trekking experience.

The Mardi Himal trek is indeed a hidden treasure. The region very well conserves the serenity of both flora and fauna. It is more about giving yourself a chance to understand the local culture, experience the genuine wilderness, try local delicacies, and make the most out of your travel understanding.

The panoramic views of the massive Himalayan Mountains including the Annapurna range, Machhapuchre (Fishtail), Hiunchuli, Mardi Himal, etc are simply Phenomenal. Come one, come all, and experience the journey of a lifetime. Trekkers also look for Annapurna Base Camp with Mardi Himal Trek.

When is the BEST time to Trek to Mardi Himal?

The best times to trek to Mardi Himal are in the spring and autumn seasons.

Specifically, the months from March to May (spring) and mid-September to December (autumn) provide the ideal weather conditions for trekking. During these periods there is a high chance of clear weather and days are warm and sunny yet cool at night. The dry trail conditions, clear mountain views, and relatively mild temperatures make a pleasant hiking ambiance.

Can you Trek to Mardi Himal in Winter?

Yes, you can trek to Mardi Himal even in winter. The winter months from December to February is certainly a very good time for Mardi Himal Trek, though it is colder, especially at higher elevations. As long as one is properly equipped and prepared, clear and sunny winter days also afford excellent Himalayan vistas. However, extreme cold and snowfall on the trail can occur and may hinder trekking at times.

Is Mardi Himal accessible in the Monsoon?

The answer to this question can be Yes or No. In contrast to Spring, Winter, and Autumn, the monsoon season from June to September is not recommended for a Mardi Himal trek. Besides, the Annapurna region receives the highest amount of rainfall in Nepal. The heavy and steady rainfall leads to very wet, muddy, and slippery trail conditions. The persistent rain clouds also obstruct mountain views. Furthermore, heightened risks of landslides and flooding pose dangers to trekkers.  Hence, it is best to avoid the monsoon period in favor of the drier and clearer spring and autumn trekking seasons.

Mardi Himal Trek FAQs

  • This delightful off-the-beaten trek is moderate in terms of terrain formation. The difficulty level can be measured to as 3+. The terrain setting involves an undulating trail, and occasional steep climbing that takes you to the elevation of (4250 m/13,600 Ft).  however, the Nepal Pyramids itinerary is intended to make all our trips more fascinating than exhausting. 

  • Challenging physical preparation is not required for this trek since it’s a moderate trekking destination. As a part of your training, it’s certainly advisable to prepare yourself with everyday undulating walking, running, or cardio. Walking up and down the steps certainly helps you to synchronize with Nepal hills terrain. 

    Anybody of any age group can join. However, we recommend pre-physical training that will definitely add to your benefit and your doctors’ consent (mandatory) in regard to any personal ailments, weak ankle/knee, blood pressure, heart/lung problems, etc.

  • Besides other mild mountain ailments like food poisoning or diarrhea, there is no record of altitude sickness issues while doing the Mardi Himal trek. However, we provide medically trained Group leaders with medications and oxygen cylinders to deal with altitude sickness and other common mountain ailments.

  • Like other popular destinations of Nepal Mardi Himal region doesn’t deliver appropriate Tea- Houses accommodation. The tea houses are very recently built and have basic amenities. These lodges despite being basic are very cozy and very welcoming. However, they are at their best offering you a comfortable experience with their typical homestay environment. They deliver twin bed sharing or dormitory accommodation facilities with hygienic common toilets. 

    However, with growing tourism in Mardi Himal, more lodges are being built and the basic ones are getting remodeled. 

    The food they prepare is undeniably wonderful and in many cases, Nepal Pyramids' local staff offers the necessary assistance to prepare your meals which is yet another sensational experience.

  • With no extra charge Nepal Pyramids staff will supply you with properly boiled water every morning and evening. Therefore, it is always wise to have at least 2 metal bottles or BPA-free plastic bottles. In case you run out of the water provided you can always buy boiled and filtered water from the tea houses along the way at minimal charges. To preserve our already deteriorating environment we are opposed to the use of disposable plastic bottles on any of our trips into the Nepal Himalayas. 

  • Doing the Mardi Himal Fishtail trek during winter is feasible. Winter is always great it delivers you clear sky and flawless views. Due to extreme chill at higher elevations closure of lodges and extreme chill factor can be the situation. However, it’s not impossible, visitors simply need to prepare for the worst of chill weather circumstances.

  • Nepal Pyramids provides you with a very warm sleeping bag with fleece liner and wind-stopper duvet jackets with attached hoods. We also provide you with a Nepal Pyramids duffel bag to fit all your gear in, a plastic bag to separate your clean clothes from the dirty ones. Besides, we provide you with a free t-shirt, trekking map, and Buff (multiple head-wears).

  • The charging privilege is possible all through the trail except for High Camp. However, all lodges usually provide device charging facilities in the dining hall as they don't have room charging facilities for now. The probability of charging the facility is pretty meek occasionally. It is always wise to carry some extra batteries or the fully charged power bank batteries since your batteries run out pretty quickly in the cold. 

  • Most lodges have hot shower facilities - over minimal cost they will provide you with an LPG Gas Shower. Some lodges do have Solar Hot Shower as well which can be FREE but it all depends on how the day turns out. No sun means No hot shower with solar showers. Yet, these basic lodges do provide anyone with a bucket–hot shower which is indeed a great experience in the Himalayas. Very few lodges provide you with Wi-Fi over some charges but they are not always reliable.

  • April to mid-June during spring and September to November during autumn before the harsh winter is the best time to trek to Mardi Himal Fishtail Trek when the view of the mountain is at its best state.

    Since the winter offers crystal clear weather and exceptional mountain views few travelers do Mardi Himal treks during December and January, February.
