Mardi Himal (5587m) climbing holidays is truly an adventure peak climbing in Nepal Himalaya, lies less than 15 miles from Pokhara. Mardi Himal is the lowest and the least climbed southerly peak of the Annapurna range. The Mardi Himal was first climbed in 1961 by Jimmy Roberts with Sherpas by route on its East face.
Mardi Himal is the name given to the long rising ridge and its crest that forms the southwesterly lower slope of Mount Fishtail. This is a climbing expedition through forest to above the tree line and on up to our high altitude camp at 4100m. We established this high camp with a view to climb towards the knoll of Mardi Himal(5500m) from which vantage point there are the most amazing close quarter views of all.
The valleys and ridges south of Mardi Himal are steep and heavily wooded with bamboo and rhododendron. The Mardi Peak climbing has superior view of the Annapurna ranges and certainly a fantastic view of Machhapuchhare, the better known as Fish Tail Peak. The small number of trekkers and climbers visit the valleys and ridges south of Mardi Himal. Above the forest high alpine pastures provide good grazing and a habitat for undisturbed wildlife. In spite of its low altitude the mountain evidently has a great deal of potential for those interested in small scale exploratory mountaineering and the ridges, already mentioned, present palpable climbing challenges at a reasonable standard.
