Mardi himal trekking peak is the lowest altitude peak in Nepal which lies less than fifteen miles from Pokhara.This Mardi Himal Peak  received its first ascent in 1961. The first route was via the East Flank and is the only one used so far. The mountain separates the southwest ridge of Machhapuchhare as a separate mass at right angles to the ridge and is best seen from the south. The southwest face of the mountain has three well-defined ridges rising from rock buttresses and separated by hanging glaciers. Its east face is separated from the Machhapuchhare ridge by a col at 5,200 meters. The normal climbing route to the summit of Mardi Himal passes through this col. The summit offers a splendid view of the Annapurna Range and the fishtail mountain – Machhapuchhare. The valleys and ridges south of Mardi Himal are steep and heavily wooded with bamboo and rhododendron. Fishtail mountain and Annapurna south range are seen so beautiful and very close up in distance. Sunrise and sun set view from the high camp and from the summit you even imagine how it goes…

How difficult is the Mardi Himal trek?
In terms of terrain there are no ropes needed and no ice picks needed for the trek. There is no vertical climbing involved though going from high camp to base camp is quite steep and rocky. The trails are not paved. It is rough, rocky and gravel strewn after forest camp. The forested part of your trek can get slippy if it rains. The hardest part of the Mardi Himal trek is going from High Camp to Base Camp. If you have an extra day it's worth taking your time for the return trek and staying a night in low camp before going back down.

But for Climber you need a good knowledge of rope sailing, climbing with crampon boots, fixing the harness belt, eight not and more experiencse than a trek.
