“A paradise of the Himalayas”
Mardi Himal is the name given to the feature of the long rising ridge and its summit from the southwesterly lower slope of Mt. Machapuchare, the famous triangular skyline that is seen from the Phewa Lake at Pokhara. As we shall soon see from a closer and more westerly vantage point, the mountain hold wins peak – thus its name, Machapuchare, which in English means “Fishtail”. Machhapuchhare is the most southerly high point of the Annapurna Massif, the awesomely majestic grouping of mountains in the central Himalayas that includes 5 of the 12 highest mountains in the world – all at the close quarters to our route.
