    Mardi Himal, forest and Fishtail mountain 
A trek that can be completed within the frame of 8 to 10 days with the maximum altitude of around 4500m is very much suitable for the beginner trekkers from getting habituated to higher environment in a short period of time to having seen and rejoiced by the presentation of the great Annapurna extension. Yes, Mardi Himal trek to its base camp at the bottom of Mardi Hinmal is a recently opened trekking trail laid on the other side of one the most famous trekking trail of Nepal that is Annapurna Base Camp trail. However this route has not been able to welcome a lot of trekkers and still remained unexplored to many. One could run hands over the serenity of the verdurous of rhododendron woods all throughout the trek and typical Nepali villages of Magar and Gurung community mostly inhabiting the region can be a wonderful journey. On top of that the view of the Mardi Himal, stunning
Macchapuchre (Fishtail) and the whole of Annapurna Massif are the most rewarding and the ultimate goal of the trek. Autumn is considered as the best season for this trek because the aftermath of monsoon leaves the region at full bloom of rhododendron flowers and greeneries and the onset of autumn is a perfect balance in climate and its scenery.
