"Explore a less crowded trekking route in the Annapurna region and have an unparalleled spiritual experience on our Mardi Himal Yoga Trek 12 Days. De-stress and practice yoga & meditation in the Himalayas while witnessing tempting beauty."
Mardi Himal Trek, in general, is an offbeat, short trek. Combining yoga in the journey makes the trek even more fantastic. The guided yoga sessions every day will help you bond with nature deeply and make the trek a little easier. Located east of the Annapurna base camp trail, the Mardi Himal yoga trek explores a relatively newly discovered trekking route (opened back in 2012).
In recent days, Mardi Himal yoga trekking has been getting popular as one of the best destinations to enjoy yoga trekking. Still, the Mardi yoga trekking route is not as bustling as other famous treks like Ghorepani Poon Hill and Annapurna Sanctuary. This yoga trek is perfect for anyone looking for a more immersive and peaceful venture.
During the Mardi Himal yoga trek 12 days, you trek with a professional yoga instructor. The day begins and ends with fantastic yoga sessions in gorgeous backdrops. Mountains like Annapurn (8,091 m), Dhaulagiri (8,167 m), Hiunchuli (6,441 m), Fishtail (6,993 m), Nilgiri (7,061 m), Lamjung Himal (6,983 m), Mardi Himal (5,587 m), Tent Peak (5,695 m), etc decorates the trail.
What makes the Mardi Himal yoga trek in Nepal furthermore exciting is not retracing the path once you reach the highest point of the trek. From the Mardi Himal Base Camp (4,500 m), you'll use another route to descend to Jhinu Danda (1,800 m) and end the trek at Siwa (1,150 m). This part of the trail is more inclined towards cultural experience as resided by people of different communities.

Regardless of its off-the-beaten route, the Mardi yoga trek is recommended to beginner trekkers who love adventure and challenges.
The trail is rough and densely forested. There are steep and narrow paths too. The final ascent goes along the steep ridge of Mardi Himal. Similarly, the services in the tea houses are very basic. Thus you also have to prepare your mind to adjust to the bare minimum modern comforts.

Starting at 1,650 metres (Dhampus), the trail ascends up to 4,500 metres (Mardi Himal Base Camp). Because of the high elevation, you have to be aware of altitude sickness.
