Machhapuchhre trekking is one of the newly identified trekking trails in the Annapurna region. Machhapuchhre trekking trail takes visitors to the closest view of Mt. Mardi (5553 m) and Mt. Machhapurchare (6997 m) also popular as Mt. Fishtail among westerners. Lt. Col. J. O. M. Roberts, one of the first westerners to explore this area when he made the first ascent of Mardi Himal in 1961 (which has since become one of Nepal’s so-called ‘trekking peaks’) and coined the phrase ‘The Other Sanctuary’ to differentiate it from its more famous neighbour, the Annapurna Sanctuary.

Machhapuchhre Trekking commences with a short drive from Pokhara to Mardi Pool. Following the trekking trail we reach an interesting location of Hile. Also Known as the other Sanctuary this exciting trekking trail gets away from the popular tea house trails, and offers a quick climb to altitude, bamboo and rhododendron forests and high grazing pastures. It offers possibly the finest view point of all for the Annapurna massif and this contrasts with the quiet beauty of the low lying Seti valley and river gorge. Besides mountain views this trekking trail also offers scenic beauty of streams, lush vegetation and indigenous lifestyles and culture of ethnic dwellers. This trail also holds importance in the context of road construction along the traditional trekking routes of Annapurna region. Following days we visit Khumai, Korchaung, Kharka, Pipar, Karuwa, Ghiprang, Gharchok and end our trek at Mardi Pool.

A distinct trekking trial in our repertoire offering you, with a shorter steeper version of, our 14 day trek of the similar name. It ascends more rapidly through the lowlands and omits the highest camps. Be there to be the first one to get thrilled by this magnificent Fishtail Mountain of class and style.
