Rising above the Annapurna Sanctuary and less than 20kms from Pokhara, Mardi Himal is the most southerly mountain of the Annapurna range and the lowest and perhaps least-climbed or visited of all trekking peaks in Nepal.

The mountain is a continuation of the south-west ridge of Machhapuchhare, from which it is separated by a col. The first ascent was made in 1961 by Colonel Jimmy Roberts who, together with two Sherpas, reached the summit via the eastern flank. This line of ascent remains the only recorded route to date.

Mardi Himal 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 5,200m. The normal climbing route to the summit of Mardi Himal passes through this col from a glaciated amphitheatre that rises above a hidden plateau. The summit offers spectacular views of the Annapurna Range and sacred Machhapuchhare, commonly known as ‘Fishtail’.

Although lower than other trekking peaks, Mardi Himal does require a reasonable standard of climbing ability and would appeal to those interested in small-scale exploratory mountaineering expeditions.
