This combines the Annapurna Base Camp trail and Mardi Himal a wilderness and off the beaten track giving trekkers an opportunity to explore beautiful scenery of south face of Mardi Himal and Mt. Machhapuchhre Himalayas, people and life style of the local people here. This trek starts from Birethanti to Ghorepani and Chhomrong then climbs through forests and above the tree lines to follow the ridge that goes up to trekking high camp 3,620m where time is spent acclimatizing while being awestruck by the views. Finally the trail enters the wilderness territory as we go beyond 4,500 meters, where the great ice fields and be glaciers of Annapurna Base Camp lie below.
