Mardi Himal Yoga Trek

Duration: 11 Days

Mardi Himal Yoga Trek is a spiritual experience at its finest. It is an opportunity to trek the less visited Mardi Himal region in Annapurna while rejuvenating your mind, body, and soul with daily yoga practice in the Himalaya. Mardi Himal Yoga Trek is popular for the best views of Mt. Machapuchhre(fishtail) and the spectacular landscape. Add the spiritual experience of yoga to it, and the trek becomes perfect.

We start the trek at 1,000 m and scale up to 4,500m in just five days, this level of altitude gain without any risks and trouble in the Annapurna region is possible in this trek only. We start Mardi Himal Yoga Trek with a scenic drive from Pokhara to Kande. We then walk from Kande to Pothana. The first few days of Mardi Himal Yoga Trek takes you through lush forests with views of the glorious mountains in the Annapurna range, from Annapurna South to Mt. Machhapuchhre. Not just the mountains, the layer and layer of hills that lie close to the Himalayan peaks are just as breathtaking.

We start each morning with rejuvenating and healing breathing yoga and meditation practice amongst the Himalaya and walk through a forest of rhododendron, chestnut, wallichii and schima trees among others. We reach the viewpoint and the Base camp on the 6th day off of Mardi Himal Yoga Trek. Enjoy the deep gorge towards Annapurna Base Camp as seen on your walk from the viewpoint to the base camp.

Right before you reach the base camp, there is a ridge with stunning views of the Himalaya. We can practice some yoga poses and meditation here as well. We get back to Pokhara via Low camp where we practice some more yoga and meditation with the guru. Adventure Club Trek has an experienced and spiritually inclined yoga guru who will teach you various yoga poses and meditation techniques throughout Mardi Himal Yoga Trek. We also offer Annapurna Base Camp Yoga Trek-. 15 Days, Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek-16 Days and Yoga and Meditation Tour-12 Days.

Pre-Trip Meeting 

Prior to all the treks and expeditions, Adventure Club Trek hosts a pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu. The primary purpose of the meeting is to provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about the forthcoming trek and to introduce other team members. The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. Pre-trip meeting is very important in order to have a better preparation of the trekking.
