Mohare Danda Trekking

Trek to Mohare Danda, within the Annapurna region is definitely a new experience to alternative route of Ghorempani for the trekkers that support Magar communities. It’s main purpose is to create sustainable economic stability by promoting tourism potentialities and possibilities in this area. Exploring the unexplored region, trekkers can enjoy the wonderful culture, nature, friendly people and stunning view of one of the longest chains of mountains. Mohare Danda (3300m) is the closest point to view the massive Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. The Mohare Danda Trekking is the perfect alternative of the overcrowded Ghorepani - Poonhill Trekking. 

Mohare Danda is the ‘high road’ alternative to the Ghorepani Trek, and follows an alternative trail up from Pokhara itself up to Banskharka, along to Nangi and Mohare. The treks are along scented forests of oak, rhododendron and spruce and sometimes along exposed ridges that offer exhilarating views of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South dead ahead and the forked summit of Machapuchre to the east. You have a long circuit lasting a week to Dhankharka, or you can do a shorter five-day version fast-tracking through Tikot.

Mohare Danda Trek is an initiative of Magsaysay winner Mahabir Pun for developing a unique concept of eco-trekking that benefits the environment and development of the area.

TREKKING GRADE

It's important to match your fitness level. Find what you think will suit you best in the tables below:

Easy

Easy trekking by Himalayan standards is generally up to 2800m. There are plenty of ups and downs on well-maintained trails. This type of trip is best suited for those who lead a reasonably active life. The trek takes about 3 to 7 days, walking about 4 to 5 hours a day.

Moderate

this involves longer treks (eight to fifteen days) on maintained trails. This type of trek includes day excursions to higher elevations, for which it's advisable to have some previous hill- walking experience. On these treks, we generally achieve an altitude between 1100 m to 3200 m.

Strenuous

these treks must be fully supported. We climb to altitudes between 3200 and 5000m. and there are overnight stays at altitudes above 4000m. For this trek, trekkers should be fit and enthusiastic hill walkers prepared to tackle difficult terrain in remote areas.

Very strenuous

this trek is best described as Alpine, and suitable is suitable for those in excellent health, capable of carrying a backpack, when required. The trek covers very remote areas, traveling over snow-covered passes at altitudes of up to 6500m. You will need to axes and crampons. No strenuous trek should be undertaken without medical clearance.
