Peak Climbing in Nepal

Mardi Himal Peak Climbing - 6367 m

Mardi Himal Peak Climbing Mardi Himal is truly adventurous for trekking peak climbing which lies less than 15 miles from Pokhara and is the most southerly peak of the Annapurna range. It is the lowest and the least climbed or visited peak. Photographs of Mardi Himal taken in 1953 by Baisl Good fellow first drew the attention of western climbers, and Jimmy Roberts who, with two Sherpas, climbed to the summit by a route on its East face in 1961.

The valleys and ridges south of Mardi Himal are steep and heavily wooded with bamboo and rhododendron. Obviously, the peak has superior view of the the Annapurna ranges and certainly a fantastic one of Machhapuchhare the better known as Fish Tail Peak. A small number of westerners visit the valleys and ridges south of Mardi Himal.

They are steep sided and heavily wooded with bamboo and rhododendron. Above the forest high alpine pastures provide good grazing and a habitat for undisturbed wildlife. in spite of it lowly altitude the mountain evidently has a great deal of potential for those interested in small-scale exploratory mountaineering and the ridges, already mentioned, present palpable climbing challenges at a reasonable standard.

Equipments checklists - climbing trips
In addition to the above list of suggested trekking equipment, you should take along with various items of mountaineering tools. For any trip which has crossed by steep, snow-covered ground, or which has included section of glacier travel, it might be necessary for the group roping up as a safety precaution. To facilitate this process of roping up, you will need to maintain a minimum requirement, a climbing harness, a climbing sling and two locking carabineers. Plastic mountaineering boots, a mountaineering ice axe and a pair of crampons with front points are the other items of equipment, which are required for our trekking peak trips. (Please note: Our recommendation that you take no more than 33 pounds of trekking equipment DOES NOT include your plastic boots, ice axe, crampons or harness/carabineers. During the trek, climbing hardware will be carried separately from your personal trek bag in-group bags until needed).

Daypacks for climbing trips
3000-4000 cubic inches. For climbing trips, you will be required to carry more warm clothing during the climbs and also your personal climbing gear. For this reason, you will need a slightly bigger daypack than for a trekking-only trip. If you have any questions about gear, please do not hesitate to call our office for advice.
