MOHARE DANDA TREK

DON’T LIKE CROWDS – TRY THIS NEW ECO-TOURISM TREK.

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.

Key Features of Mohare Danda Trek

  • Stunning and close-up (in your face) views of the Annapurna Massif from Poon Hill & Mohare Danda.
  • Explore and understand the villagers’ way of life and customs.
  • Trek along stony trails, through unspoiled wilderness, see amazing waterfalls and dense pink & red flowering Rhododendron forests (especially in spring).
  • Homes stay with local people in their home & see how their daily lives unfold.
  •  See the unique flora and fauna of this remote region.
  • Understand and learn about the Gurung and Magar culture and their recruitment of young men to the Gurkha regiment.

ITINERARY

Expand All
Sherpa Expedition & Trekking staff will be there to greet you at Tribhuvan International Airport and take you to your hotel, followed by a briefing covering information, dos and don’ts of your trek. Your safety and comfort are paramount.
Our journey begins with a 6-7 hour drive toward the Pokhara Valley and its beautiful Phewa Tal (lake) and then checking in to your hotel close to Phewa Tal. There is plenty to see and do along Lakeside with its many shops, bars and restaurants to choose from.
After breakfast we will drive to Beni and on to Galeshwor, about a 3 hour drive and from here we begin our trek. We first cross the bridge over the Kali Gandaki River and then follow the trail ascending to Bans Kharka. Tonight we will stay at a community eco-lodge. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
Today we have an opportunity to explore the village of Nangi and watch and learn how the villagers grow and attend to their organic farms, and promote organic farming through an organic school. Nangi is also a place where they make hand-made paper – another interesting aspect of how they have minimal impact on the environment. Tonight we stay at a community lodge. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
Today we begin our trek by passing through rhododendron, oak and bamboo forests on our way to Mohare Danda ridge. From the ridge we are blessed with some awesome views of the surrounding mountains – especially at sunrise as the colors reflect off the snow-capped peaks. Tonight we stay at a community lodge. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
An early morning start to the day and the crisp mountain air rewards us with a spectacular sunrise view of the surrounding landscape and the constantly changing light adding to the experience. Today is a leisurely trek and before long we reach the tranquil Danda Kharka, located in the middle of a forested area. Tonight we stay at a community lodge. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
Today the trail takes us over the Khumnu Khola (river). After arriving at Ghandruk we have beautiful views of Annapurna South (7219m), Gangapurna (7455m), Annapurna III (7555m), Machapuchare (6993m - FishTail) and Hiunchuli (6441m). Ghandruk Village is set on the side of a mountain and has a majestic backdrop of several enormous peaks. Ghandruk is surrounded by lush forests and has many terraced agricultural plots.
Our final day trekking takes us downhill passing the teahouses at Ghandruk and continuing along the stony trail with terraced farms beside us. We then follow the trail through Birethanti and Nayapul and continue along the trail alongside the Modi Khola (river – 50km in length) before we reach Nayapul at which point we will drive to Pokhara.
Today we head back on a 6 to 7 hour drive to Kathmandu with many fond memories of Nepal and its unique culture and geography. These memories will last a lifetime!
Sherpa Expeditions & Trekking staff will transfer you to the airport for your final departure from Nepal. We hope that this epic trek will be firmly ingrained in your memory and will be enough to prompt you to consider your next trek with us!

GOOD TO KNOW

Accommodation

You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find comfortable and better quality Eco lodge/hoestay- having attached bathroom at lower levels- until you reach higher elevations, where the accommodation is more basic with bare necessities. 

Meals during the trek

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.
Transportation
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. You don’t need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus! 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!

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.
