About Mohare Danda Trek

The Mohare Danda Trek is a community lodge trek located to the south of Poon Hill in the Annapurna region that offers off-the-beaten-path trekking experience and splendid mountain vistas. The trek was initiated to support the local economy through tourism.

Named after the 3313-meter-high hill and a viewpoint, Mohare Danda, this easy 5-day trek provides an excellent view of the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Massif and the authentic cultural experience of the Pun Magar communities. For the first 3 days, you will be walking the quiet trails through beautiful villages like Banskharka and Nangi where you will spend the night in lodges run by the local community. After spending a night in Mohare Danda, you’ll be back on the main trail of the Ghorepani and Poon Hill. Then the trail descends to Ulleri down to Hile where the trek ends.

The trek passes through orange farms, mixed forests of oak and rhododendrons, terraced farmlands, and attractive villages of Pun Magar. One of the best parts of this trek is Mohare Danda (3313 M) from where you will have the panoramic view of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Range. The sunset and the sunrise view over the Himalayas are mesmerizing. If you are trekking during springtime, the trails will be decorated with colorful rhododendron forests with amazing backdrops of the mountain views.

Mohare Danda Trek Cost

The Mohare Danda Trek Cost depends on various factors such as the types of vehicle transfers, inclusion or exclusions of meals and accommodations, inclusions or exclusions of hotels in Pokhara and Kathmandu and its types, duration of the trek, size of the group, use of porters, etc. Just let us know your preferences and we will provide you with the best option. 

Mohare Danda Trek Difficulty

The Mohare Danda Trek is easy and to some extent, a moderate trek as well. The average walking hours per day in this 5-day trek is around 4 and a half hours. The trail contains stone steps, uphills, downhills, forest trails with roots, natural trails, etc. A healthy person with minimal trekking or hiking experience can easily complete this trek. However, even in an easy trek in Nepal, the trails always consist of uphill and downhills with stone steps or stairs. Therefore, prior preparation accordingly can be of great help.

  • The quiet and lively villages of the Pun Magar community like Banskharka, Nangi, and Ghorepani
