Panchase Mardi Himal Trekking-

Located in the Annapurna Region, Panchase Mardi Himal Trekking is one of the newest and the most fulfilling treks for both beginners as well as experienced trekkers. From stunning views of the mountains to immersing in the Gurung culture while trekking through many villages and lush hills, the Panchase Mardi Himal Trek is filled with fun and adventure.

Starting from the beautiful city of Pokhara, Panchase Mardi Himal Trek takes the trekkers to the less explored areas of Annapurna Region, which although untraveled offer absolutely awe-inspiring dose of nature and culture. The trek moves on ridges and past small Gurung villages to reach the vantage point of Panchase (2512m), from where breathtaking sunrise and sunset views over the peaks of the Annapurna massif can be seen. The trek moves further through verdant forests to reach several noteworthy places in the region like Sarangkot and Pothana, all serving ravishing views of surrounding mountains. Finally, the trek follows the quiet trail to Mardi Himal Base Camp via Forest Camp and High Camp. The mountains look overwhelmingly gorgeous once at the base camp. The peaks of Annapurna South (7219m), Hiunchuli (6441m), Machhapuchhre (6997m), and Mardi Himal (5553m) along with other peaks of Annapurna massif seen from Mardi Himal Base Camp make the whole trek worth it. The trek comes to an end in Australian Camp which is reached after the Gurung village of Landruk and is followed by a drive to Pokhara and then Kathmandu.
