Using ropes, crampons and ice axes we ascend towards the Mardi Himal Peak Climb Summit. Following the steps of our climbing sherpa experts, we build a successful climb to the summit of Mardi Himal. After achieving the summit, our return journey heads back through Mardi Himal Base Camp, Hyenja and to Pokhara.

The first part of the climb leads to the East Col at 5400 meters between Mardi Himal and Machhapuchhre (Fish-Tail) which is approximately 4 hours of tiring climbing. Using our climbing equipment and following the footsteps of our experienced climbing experts, we will make a very long snow climb which is not steep but very tiring.
