The Mohare Danda (3313m) Trek is a new destination where trekkers stay in community-owned lodges or homestay. This gives you a more intimate experience and a great way to understand the local traditions and lives of the people in this region. 

Mohare Danda Trek in the foothill of Annapurna Region is well known as Eco Lodge Community Trek. This newly opened trek in an off the beaten track trail of the Annapurna Region is rich in fauna and flora with dense pine, oak and bamboo forests – especially rhododendron forests and their magnificent pink and red flowers. From a vantage point of just over 3000 metres, you will have awesome panoramic views of some of the largest mountain ranges in the Himalayas, such as the 120 km long Dhaulagiri Massif and the Annapurna Massif –(comprising of one peak over 8000 metres, thirteen peaks over 7000 metres, and sixteen more over 6000 metres). This is a cultural experience that brings you in direct contact with local families and villages of the Magar and Gurung people.

Trekkers will appreciate the unique culture and resilience of the villagers living in this out-of-the-way region. Their genuine smiles are contagious and their hospitality second to none. All accommodation or lodges are either homestay or community-based lodges. The focus on this trek is to preserve and sustain the natural environment and to give trekkers a sense of belonging when they stay with families in this amazing location. This trek is an eco-tourism adventure not to be missed.

The Mohare Danda Trek is an ideal short trek from Pokhara and is suitable for families and individuals seeking a new and more intimate relationship with the local people in the Annapurna region.

In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of the Manang & Mustang regions is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew, and Tibetan bread. Sherpa’s’ started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.
We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We use public transportation or local buses during the trek. 

Physical fitness

This can be a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day.

We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake. 

Remember – The better prepared – the more enjoyable your trek!

The Mohare Danda Trek is a relatively new trekking route in the Annapurna region of Nepal. It offers a less crowded and off-the-beaten-path experience compared to other popular treks in the region. The trek takes you to Mohare Danda, a viewpoint famous for its panoramic views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges.

The duration of the Mohare Danda Trek typically ranges from 5 to 8 days, depending on your itinerary and pace. The trek can be customized to fit your preferences and time constraints.

The best time to do the Mohare Danda Trek is during the spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) seasons. These months offer stable weather, clear skies, and moderate temperatures, making it ideal for trekking. However, the trek can also be done in the winter and summer months, but the weather conditions may be more challenging.

Yes, you will need permits to do the Mohare Danda Trek. The required permits are the Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP) and the Trekkers' Information Management System (TIMS) card. These permits can be obtained in Kathmandu or Pokhara before starting your trek.

The Mohare Danda Trek is considered a moderate trek. It involves trekking through various terrains, including uphill and downhill sections, with an average of 4-6 hours of walking per day. While it is not technically challenging, a good level of fitness and some prior trekking experience is recommended.

The Mohare Danda Trek offers basic teahouse accommodations along the route. These teahouses provide a cozy place to rest and have communal dining areas where you can enjoy local Nepali and international cuisine. However, the facilities may be more basic compared to other popular trekking routes.

The Mohare Danda Trek can be done independently, as the trail is well-marked and there are teahouses available for accommodation. However, hiring a guide or joining a trekking group is recommended, especially if you are new to trekking or unfamiliar with the area. A guide can provide valuable information, assist with navigation, and ensure your safety during the trek.

Altitude sickness is not a major concern on the Mohare Danda Trek, as the maximum elevation reached is around 3,300 meters. However, it is still important to acclimatize properly, stay hydrated, and listen to your body. If you experience symptoms of altitude sickness, it is essential to descend to a lower altitude and seek medical help if necessary.

Some essential items to pack for the Mohare Danda Trek include sturdy trekking boots, warm clothing layers, a good quality sleeping bag, a daypack, a water bottle, sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, a first aid kit, and toiletries. It is advisable to pack light and carry only the necessary items.

Yes, if you prefer not to carry your backpack during the trek, you can hire porters to carry your belongings. This allows you to trek with less weight and enjoy the journey more comfortably. You can arrange for porters through trekking agencies or directly with the teahouses along the route.

Best Annapurna Himalaya View Trek

Pre-trip Info
Value for Money

We Had an Amazing Mohare Danda Trek with Sherpa Expedition and Trekking Team. As a couple on our honeymoon, we really enjoyed the experience and the country. The scenery really is special, and nothing can prepare you for how beautiful your surroundings are. Our guide, Ram barakoti, and his team were excellent and accommodating. There is little time for yourself outside of the group, which if you don't gel can be a little overbearing. Overall, we had a great time and would use the Sherpa Expedition and Trekking Team again.
