Mardi Himal Trek

Mardi Himal Trek leads up to near Amazing Fishtail mountain. Even though the trail was established some years ago and there are no promotional activities for this trail from Nepal’s government, the trial is getting huge tourists.

The Mardi Himal trail is getting season by season with more tourists because of recommendations. Do you know, in the main season hoteliers are getting trouble to provide accommodation for tourists due to mass tourism and insufficient hotels? It’s difficult to get permission for locals to add a hotel on the trail because it lies on Annapurna Conservation Areas.
