    Short Information of the area Mardi Himal:

    Mardi Himal was exposed to the world by Col Jimmy Roberts and Mike Cheney when they explored the area looking for new fresh route around Annapurna region and discovered this beautiful spot of Mardi Himal.

    Mardi Himal was christened as ‘Other Sanctuary’ by early pioneers and explorer after Annapurna Sanctuary. Western Mountaineers first noticed this mountain by photographs of Basil Good fellow, taken in 1953.

    It was climbed to its summit by a route on its east flank by Jimmy Roberts with two Sherpa. As seen from the south, Mardi Himal terminated the Southwest ridge of Mt. Machhapuchare as a distinct and separate mass, at right angles to that ridge.

    On Mardi Himal South West Face are three well-defined ridges rising from rock buttresses and separated by hanging glaciers. It is the most southerly of these is said to have been climbed, but no such details has been recorded.

    Mardi Himal East Face separated from Mt. Machhapuchare ridge by col (circa 5,200m/17,060ft). Located approximately 45 k.m. / 15 miles north of Pokhara as the crow flies.

    Mardi Himal with two main routes to reach its base camp the other east route from Lwang, Dhiprung via Mardipul to reach at Simre Kharka, Khorchon and towards the base of Mardi Himal, where this route does not have lodge facilities requires camping facilities.

    Main and popular route at present, as set and planned the itinerary from Potana and Deurali to Mardi Himal North West Base Camp.
