The Annapurna region in Nepal, as a typical hiking destination, is so fascinating and lovely that it attracts a lot of tourists. At 3,300 metres above sea level, the Mohare Danda is found neighbouring the mouth of the gorge between two ranges of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains close to Ghorepani Poon hill.

Mohare Danda Trek from Nagi village is the least preferred short trekking route that starts from Pokhara. This is among the best ways one can enjoy the surroundings of the Nepalese countryside after city life. Besides, it offers a chance to know about Nepalese culture and their distant way of life.

The trip begins in Kathmandu, and it will be necessary for us to make a drive to Pokhara from Kathmandu. This trip will last roughly seven hours. The city of Pokhara has been nicknamed as the capital of tourism in Nepal. The city has amazing sights of many Himalayan ranges and some peaceful lakes.

Reaching Galeshwor marks the start of the trek region after a day in Pokhara. This part of the trip will also involve riding on a bus or private vehicle. You get down in Galeshwar, go to the temple of Galoshwar, and trek to Banash Kharka.

You start trekking from Bans Kharka and head towards Naangi village – the birthplace of Mahabir Pun. For example, Mahabir Pun has started to produce paper using local plants in the village, to have a medicinal nursery, etc., in a way that helps improve people’s economic well-being and the livelihoods of the community members living around the area.

From Naangi, we head to Mohare Danda via lush thickets of tree species like birches, rhododendrons, and oaks. It is a relatively steep trail that might test your strength. Nevertheless, once you arrive at Mohare Danda, all your physical fatigue will be forgotten because you will encounter breathtakingly near views of some Himalayas like Nilgiri, Annapurna South, Machhapuchhre/Fish aka Tail Mountain, and many more. 

You’ll spend a night at Mohare Danda to see the most beautiful sunrise  views in the mighty mountain range for the next morning. Afterward, You will drive towards Tikot village and Tiplyange after witnessing the spectacular sights from Mohare Danda.

You would, after that, use a bus or private vehicle to return to Pokhara from Tiplyange. Your trek ends in Pokhara. In Pokhara, you can spend your time any way you feel like.

Trekkers begin from outside the scenic Pokhara, a top destination for tourists in Nepal.  This walks you through villages, farmlands in rural areas, pulp/paper making factories, cheese factories, forests, orchards, and mountains until you reach “Mohare Danda” village.

It takes about three to nine days to cover the entire distance in this trek, depending on your walking pace and the time spent at stopping points.

While this route isn’t as popular compared to other destinations, it can be the perfect option if you enjoy hiking amidst thronging crowds and prefer solitude instead. Mohare Danda trek from Nagi Village is beautiful as it has bypassed domestic and international tourist crowds. The Annapurna Trek is within the Annapurna Conservation Area. However, trekking does not require a permit.

This trek will suit those searching for a true adventure. You enjoy Nepali urban life with great views of rural mountains. Typically, it’s easier but will involve hard days, so watch out.

What To expect

The Mohare Danda Trek, located in the Annapurna region of Nepal, offers an exceptional and exciting adventure by its very nature. The tour starts from the enchanting lakeside town of Pokhara (known as the Annapurna gateway). Unlike several other famous treks within the region, a few days are not devoted completely to walking during the Mohare Danda Trek, thereby making it less strenuous for most backpackers. It is an excellent choice for people who would like to explore the beautiful Annapurna region but don’t have the endurance for more complicated treks.

Starting your journey in a beautiful city like Pokhara; which is famous for crystal clear lakes, dense foliage, majestic mountain ranges of Annapurna, and Dhaulagiri can be described as a once-in-a-lifetime experience.  Trek begins with a very short drive from Pokhara to a village called Galeshwor. The walkway goes through untainted forests, welcoming villages, and terraced farms. However, what makes this trek unique is the fact that one does not need to walk for miles every day just to view the beautiful scenery along the route. Walking distance per day is moderate, making it great for all kinds of trekkers

You may meet friendly people offering you a coffee and even share something about their culture as you meander through this trail. This trek promotes community-based tourism. As such, you are sure to undertake a few homestays that offer this amazing chance. You will mingle with the locals, learn about their cultures, and enjoy delicious Nepalese food.

The destination, known as Mohare Danda, is one of the highlights of the Mohare Danda Trek. It is a calm, hilly region from which one can have splendid scenery of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges, among others. It is breathtaking and mystical to watch the sunset and sunrise points on Mohare Danda during this festive period when people’s lives and landscapes change colour. It is a perfect place for meditation and contemplation amidst the pristine environment of the Himalayan region.

It might not be a tough trek as other popular ones, but that does not mean you will not meet different landscapes and their breathtaking natural beauty. Trekking through rhododendron forests, terrace fields, and nice Gurung and Magar villages adds to the diversity of experiences in the Annapurna.

Is Mohare Danda Trek Right For You? 

Mohare Danda Trek in Nepal offers a beautiful adventure tailored for all types of trekkers. The trek is perfect for adults, families, and single travellers, thus offering this amazing journey experience to all types of tourists. For those travelling with children, Mohare Danda offers an appealing destination because of its peaceful environment and simple paths. Normally, the trek lasts about nine or ten days, which enables most travellers to experience the magnificence of Nepal despite a relatively short break from their everyday routine.

Nevertheless, one must consider their physical fitness level before deciding whether to take the Mohare Danda Trek. There is usually an exertion of a lot of energy as it entails hiking for six to eight hours daily through hills where a backpack may be needed. It is also hard if your body isn’t already used to rigorous activities and exercises such as running and hiking. However, it is wise that you undertake some kind of pre-trek training to prepare for the challenges of the trial. Such preparation like cardio-vascular exercises, strength training, and walking with a loaded backpack aims to build endurance for that run.

Also, think about issues of height, climate, and lodging. Even though Mohare Danda may not be too high, one must be aware of possible problems associated with the altitude. Therefore, it will be necessary to allocate some acclimatisation days and have some preventive measures. The weather in the area is usually erratic; thus, good clothing and other equipment should be in position. Along the way, accommodation is generally teahouses rather than necessarily for those seeking luxurious places with specific facilities.

To determine if the Mohare Danda Trek is right for you, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are you fit enough and ready for daily trekking of about six to eight hours through hilly countries?
  • Do you feel at ease with the primitive sleeping arrangements of teahouses?
  • You can handle uncertainties like variations in climate.
  • Have you brought the necessary gear and clothes for trekking in the Nepalese mountains?
  • When is it enough to accommodate and cope with altitude problems even though the path is not very high?
  • Can you spare 9-10 days for this expedition in your vacation planner?

If your response is yes to the above mentioned questions and you are ready to take the requisite training and preparation, then Mohare Danda Trek will be truly worthwhile. It is a nice trek through the natural area, where one has a chance to see real life with people being hospitable and friendly. Moreover, it is a mild but interesting adventure that anybody will appreciate.

Mohare Danda Trek From Nagi Village Difficulty

Not all trekking activities within Nepal have similar levels of difficulty among individuals. It largely depends on the level of difficulty and your previous experience and fitness condition as well.

If you have ever done some other trekking adventures in Nepal, like Mount Everest base camp, Annapurna base camp, or Annapurna circuit, then the Mohare Danda trek will be too easy. Nevertheless, it would be difficult for you since it is your first attempt to hike in such a manner. 

Generally, the Mohare Danda Trek is considered a beginner’s trek. It is a newly introduced hike that is less known than other walks within the framework of the Annapurna region. This hike takes about 4-7 days to complete. But we here offer the same trek, completing a total of 9 days to make sure you are acclimated enough. 

This hiking journey takes the participants through varied landscapes, such as rhododendron forests, traditional local villages, and field terraces. It is a well-marked way, which is not complicated. Nonetheless, many sections with hills require a small amount of strength and energy to handle them.

The first day will consist of climbing steep stairs, which we believe may be too much for almost every trekker. Like the first day, the second day will have some climbs, descents, and level areas, which are not as hard. Furthermore, on the third day of walking the mountain, the walk may become hard because the steepest and toughest ascending climbs characterise that day. That is the precipice whereby there is a steep fall on the fourth day in the mountains. If you have problems with your knees, then this may prove to be quite a challenge. On the other hand, the first part of the fifth day is a descent. However, it might be somewhat tough for a person with knee problems.

In most cases, the Mohare Danda trek passes by breathtaking scenery and hence is not crowded. It is, however, much less strenuous, as compared to some well-known tracks in the region, but it does involve a bit of strength.

If you are willing to enjoy this hike in the Annapurna region as well as have a vivid memory of it, note that the changing terrain of the elevations will not be an easy task. Thus, take your hike depending on your health status, and you will be surprised by some scenic sites and cultural encounters.

Preparations For Your Mohare Danda Trek From Nagi Village

Your fitness preparations and training will heavily influence how you smooth your  Mohare Danda starting from Nagi Village. Generally, the trek is regarded as a relatively easy to moderately difficult trail, but it is important to prepare oneself for possible challenges, especially at the beginning.

One of those important things to do before starting trekking like Mohare Danda is to visit your doctor. Similarly, you can do a medical check-up to analyse your present health condition and address precautions against Altitude Sickness among trekkers at higher heights.

People who are not used to physical activities have to develop some kind of fitness for themselves before embarking on this trial. 

You should thus focus on increasing your endurance and sustenance since the climb takes over two hours in the morning and three hours to walk downhill later.

An example of this form of exercise may include a stair climb to prepare oneself for what they would encounter in terms of their trekking, i.e., climbing many steps on the first day of the trip. Strong legs and improving stamina will assist you in handling the first climb without too much worry. Moreover, take some aerobics like brisk walking and cycling.

You can also try adding a day as long as you are in good walking condition to ensure no problem during your trek. It provides a chance for resting and acclimating, which reduces physical stress, hence improving the tour activities. Ensure that you don’t have a problem reaching Mohare danda since one is guaranteed to catch the sunrise and sunset on top of it.

Finally, study about the possible dangers of altitude sickness in Nepal. Hikers may experience altitude sickness at these high levels. Knowing the signs and symptoms of this, as well as measures taken to avoid it, is paramount so the journey remains fun. Bring along necessary drugs, and drink enough water during the trip.

Typical Day in Your Mohare Danda Trek 

A typical day during your Mohare Danda trek is an exciting moment filled with nature, culture, and serenity. Each day on the trek takes you further and deeper into the spellbinding panorama of the Annapurna region, resulting in a completely fresh adventure.

You will have a big breakfast to prepare yourself properly for a long hike. From the beginning, your way will be led by an experienced trek leader to enlighten you about the local abnormalities. This is where our porters, who do the heavy physical work, come in. You only have to carry your daily pack with water, foodstuff, and a camera.

Such a morning trek can entail climbing the hills and sliding down the valleys with enchanted panoramas of the Himalayas landscape. Every step you will take during the trek will bring you more great photo scenes and breathtaking landscapes. Moreover, the trail is marked by a few tiny villages you should visit if you are curious about the inhabitants' everyday routine lifestyle.

Around mid-day, we shall enjoy lunch in some beautiful place on the track. You will have an hour after your delicious meal, and you will relax and prepare for the next stage of the hike. During the afternoon, the hike takes about two to three hours, which makes it enjoyable and relaxing.

The moments unfold as you near the designated end of the journey for that day. You will have free time to visit the village, visit different places and have a touch of their environment. This presents a route for bonding with the environment and socialising with other trekkers.

'in the evening, teahouses will offer you delicious dinners, including Nepali and international dishes. After dinner, your trek guide will brief you and prepare you on what to expect for the following day.

In addition, the evenings in the trekking lodges are equally relaxed, and people bond there, too.

You can relax in many ways, like having a nice card game with other people on a trekking trip.

Essential Info

Good To Know

1. Accommodations

Hidden near the Annapurna Conservation Area, Mohare Danda is one of the newest spots for trekkers looking to venture into unexplored areas. Therefore, before you plan your visit, control your expectations. It is not a place where one would seek a luxury trip but a scenic and untouched tourist area that leads visitors through the local villages of the Magars with their pure, untouched forest ascending to 3300 metres.

The accommodation during Mohare Danda treks is mostly good regarding community lodges with clean and pleasant rooms. Nevertheless, it should be realised that except for Nangi, most resorts have common showers, and you will probably see such a room only there. Although the Mohare Danda Lodge offers few amenities, there is still a plan for modernization and betterment of the facilities.

However, the absence of roads makes the area an attractive location for a trek. However, one just wonders how the hardworking mountain communities have put up these few simple lodges for travellers' convenience. 

While trekking, most of the time, you stay at a local teahouse, which is basically several single bedrooms under one roof. Some tea houses have squat toilets outside the rooms, but it is prudent to carry your roll of toilet paper because they may not always be available. It may surprise you that even though this is a very remote area, the rooms have been designed comfortably, cleaned, and provided with all the necessary things for a pleasant stay.

You will also enjoy cold showers in each lodge as bathing facilities. However, if you wish to take a hot shower, it will cost you between one hundred and two hundred rupees for a single bucket of hot water. It is only natural that these facilities should be reasonably modest, considering the rough conditions, but also because local people wish to conserve their special nature.

Over two days, you will stay in one of the best hotels in Pokhara, accommodated in a room with a bathroom and all other facilities.  Likewise, It is necessary to book a minimum of two nights of hotel stays in Kathmandu- one before the hiking begins and another after the hike, which is included in this trekking package. 

2. Foods Choices

The Mohare Danda trek is not so tough. Still, your body has to be in perfect shape since this is a long trek, and you must eat healthy foods often. This Mohare Danda trek package price comprises 9 breakfasts, 8 lunches, and 8 dinners in this package.

  • Breakfast – French Toast with Jam, butter, hashed brown eggs, omelette variation, pancakes, muesli bread, oatmeal, corn flakes, cheese, honey Tibetan bread, local tsampa porridge, as well as fruits and vegetables are
  • Dinner/lunch - dal-bhat-tarkari, tendu, spaghetti noodles, various soup items, sherpa stew steaks, sandwiches, thukpa, pasta, vegetable curry, Tibetan
  • Dinner- vegetables, salads, pizza (tomato, mushroom, mixed), assorted soup items, Dal (Lentils), Bhaat (rice), tarkari (curry), Tibetan bread, vegetable curry, potato items, etc. 

We suggest that you keep off non-veg foods while travelling in some trek places for a better trek experience and improved health. Likewise, we suggest that you refrain from taking carbonated beverages like alcohol, coffee, and chocolates, as well as milk products. Similarly, eat enough natural vegetable fluids such as lemon juice or herbal teas like green tea, ginger tea, or garlic soup.

Permits Required for a Trek

On one hand, Mohare Danda is indeed beautiful for trekking, but it doesn’t fall under Annapurna Conservation Area. In other words, there are no separate permits that you may require for trekking at Mohare Danda. 

But if you are considering trekking some of the other nearby popular areas such as Ghorepani, Poon Hill, and Khopra Danda through the Mohare Danda route, then you will need two different permits, i.e., Trekkers’ Information Management System (TIMS) and ACAP (Annapurna Conservation Area Project). 

If you are travelling with a local tracking organisation, they usually arrange the permits for you. It is also convenient because you can expand your visit to include areas such as Mohare Danda and other attractions. Hence, whether solo or as a team, acquiring these permits is important for every traveller who desires to venture further than Mohare Danda, mainly toward Ghorepani, Poonhill, etc. 

Packing List required for a Trek

Your packing list for Mohare Danda Trek depends on the time of year and what you usually prefer to carry. Nevertheless, here is the list we have put together to assist you in packing for the hike. Bring only a little luggage to the trek, as we advise. Below are a few of the lists we advise.

Clothing and Footwear

  • T-Shirt (bring lightweight wool)
  • Polypropylene underwear
  • Hiking shirts
  • Down jacket in Kathmandu.
  • Hooded rain jacket
  • Waterproof jacket and pants
  • Synthetic fabric long-sleeved shirts.
  • Lightweight cotton pants
  • Take one additional pair of thick, warm, and light socks.
  • Fleece jacket
  • Sweater
  • Hiking Boots.

Basic gear, toiletries, and other 

  • Nail clippers
  • Medium-size drying towel
  • Small mirror
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrush
  • Biodegradable bar soap
  • Deodorant/ floss
  • Money
  • First aid kit
  • Watch
  • Cell phone
  • Camera
  • Notebook and pen
  • Binoculars

It is important to have a suitable backpack when trekking. Therefore, ensure it is durable and can hold enough food, water, sunscreen, sunglasses, and other needed stuff.

Similarly, remember to carry a tent with you when going camping during your travel. Ensure that you package it appropriately for easy erection. Also, ensure that you have sufficient dry food to sustain you through the trip since there will never be any set hour for lunch.

The lowland plain areas of Nepal are full of bugs, insects, and ticks. In fact, climate change may even happen in mountainous areas. Leech infection is common while trekking in the rainy season. Ensure you have lots of insect and leach repellents before going to Nepal. Here is more in detail about the packing list for trekking in Nepal. 

Guides For the Trek

This is the ideal trek for hiking with your family and friends that will connect you to Nepal's local people, vegetation, and country life. Nevertheless, you will still appreciate every aspect of this trek while taking your tents in the Mohare Danda Trek. Generally, you can also go to Mohare Danda Trek without a guide by staying in the local homestay and community lodge accommodation. However, you must know that solo trekking in Nepal is not allowed. Therefore, it is important to engage a guide during this journey.

A trekking guide is a person who walks with trekkers on the trail, assisting them by showing them directions as well as sharing valuable details on the mountain, nature, trees, animals, birds, and nearby settlements. A trekking guide in Nepal becomes more than just a leader. It is a role that includes booking the designated area for your overnight stay and rescheduling the activities according to your trekking pace. They also translate between Nepali and English, among other functions, and come to your aid if you are unfortunate and get sick in the high Himalayas. Briefly, the trekking guide is the hero of the trek.

The TAAN-licensed guide has full authority to lead tourists to any part of the Nepalese mountain. These individuals may either be affiliated with a trekking agency or operate independently.

We advise that if it is your first in Nepal and you are not a trekking expert, go along with a guide on this Mohare Danda hike. As this is the first community trekking, you will likely face new challenges. For example, local people want to communicate with you and tell you about their life as they view it. Just in case, maybe they will also want to know more about your way of life.

In addition, the native residents are also willing to be guides and porters in local or community trekking. Thus, in this case, Mountain Rock Treks suggests you go with the company of a guide for your visit to Mohare Danda Community Trekking. All your questions and queries about people, culture, traditions, lifestyle, and the Himalayas from the trail of the Mohare Danda community trek are adequately addressed.

The local guides will have better information regarding local topography in case of any health issues or emergencies. Having a professional guide who has years of relevant experience will do you more good on your expedition. It is advisable to trek on Mohare Danda with local guides to avoid unforeseen tragedies and fewer adverse effects.

Transportation During The Trek

The transport along with Mohare Danda Trek is effortlessly incorporated into our package, thus making it easy for our trekkers. At the onset, one has to take an amazing drive through beautiful scenery from Kathmandu to Pokhara in comfortable tourist buses for ultimate comfort and safety of passage. It links two important towns and gives a spectacular view of the scenery of Nepal.

On arrival in Pokhara, our private transport takes over. A vehicle drives from Pokhara to Galeshwor at an altitude of 1170m, signifying the journey's beginning. From this point, Tiplyang (1040m) is usually regarded as another key milestone before moving into a private vehicle. Upon completing this trek, trekkers are driven back to Pokhara using the same private vehicle, thus making it easy for them to go into relaxing mode.

Local buses also help make this return trip home to Kathmandu more real and authentically Nepali. The journey's last leg helps hikers feel the environment and experience some local customs firsthand.

An upgrade for the drive between Pokhara and Kathmandu is an option for those needing more flexibility. Trekkers also have an option either to use a public bus or a private jeep. The third option offers a personal touch to the trekking as the trekkers can customise it.

Our transportation services are included in the cost of the Mohare Danda Trek. This includes the tourist bus from Kathmandu to Pokhara to Kathmandu and the private vehicle to start and end the trek. Trekkers are openly informed of the extra charge for an optional upgrade to a private jeep or a public bus between Pokhara and Kathmandu.

Our transportation services are structured to give a perfect feel about a particular trip right from step one to increase the adventure and comfort during the journey and enhance the exploration of beautiful scenarios around Nepal.

Best Time for a Trekking in a Year

This trek can be done during any time of the year. But there is a variation of weather there. The springs and autumn are more busy in comparison to winters and summers. The trek trails are quite busier than the winter and monsoon during the spring and fall. Here are more details about weather and temperature in each season below. 

Spring Season (March, April, May)

It has cold temperatures, it rains slightly, the sky is nice and blue, and the mountain scenery is great. Therefore, trekkers come here every year in their numbers. At Mohare Danda, the average temperature ranges from 5 to 15 °C. Lower trek regions are warm, thus offering a helping climate for trekking. After March, trekkers start gaining pace and head toward different areas, enjoying breathtaking views of the blooming pink, red, and white rhododendrons that grow up to 3000 metres high. From mid-March, the temperature increases and reaches its highest at the end of June.

Autumn Season (September, October, November)

Similar to spring, autumn also attracts tourists from all across the world to Mohare Danda. This is because, during the autumn period, the area experiences moderate temperatures, mild winds, clear skies, and low precipitation, thereby forming an enabling environment for superb mountain views, which makes it a good trekking period. The nights would be equally attractive as you will have clear heavenly skies allowing for such beautiful views. Temperatures can get up to 20 °C during the day and drop to 5 °C at night, even at high altitudes. Throughout this season, many of the biggest Nepali festivals, like Dashain, Tihar, and Chhat, occur all over the country and bring the holiday spirit.

Summer Season (June, July, August)

In Nepal, the summer starts in June and ends in August. Summer heat is bearable in Nepal, and trekking in higher altitudes during this period is enjoyable. Summer occurs during the monsoons of Nepal. Therefore, these trails become wet and slippery because of the monsoon rain. At high trek, the midday temperature is usually between 15 and 25 degrees Celsius, with that of the night varying between 5 and 15 degrees. Rain brings out the best in all the treks’ vegetation, which looks lush and green.

Winter Season (December, January, February)

Mohare Danda trek is also famous in winter. However, during winter, the high trek regions become slightly cool, which excites some adventurers.  Winter lovers enjoy freezing days of up to five degrees at high trek elevations. At – 5 °c, the nights are cold. The coldest period is usually late December and early February in Nepal.

Altitude Sickness Considerations on a trek

Mohare Danda is a place where one doesn’t normally have to too much worry about altitude sickness. One can even hike their way up there, and this is a spot that both older adults and young kids can access with ease. The risk of attaining the highest level of altitude sickness is minimal. However, even if the issue is not major, you should remain alert.

Anyone can have a problem with Altitude Sickness. It can occur in any area above the height of 2400 m. Since Mohare Danda takes you to an elevation of around 3300 m, you should know the possible AMS.

If you are too high, too fast, then you are likely to suffer “Altitude Sickness.” While going for a high mountain trek, it is always important to be slow not take any climb too fast. Most experts agree that above 3,000m, one should not ascend more than 300 – 500m per day. Give yourself an acclimatization day for every thousand meters of elevation gain (do not think that a rest day means resting).

The highest altitude in Mohare Danda Trek is about 3300 meters above sea level. Altitude sickness usually comes up the border limit. Our Mohare danda is a low-altitude trek. Therefore, the chances of altitude sickness are minimal. They may even occur at a very low altitude to some people.

Thankfully, we have a highly competent team that can support trekkers in overcoming altitude sickness. We recommend our guests drink a lot of fluids such as plain water and hot food like soup and tea to avoid altitude sickness.

Additionally, we adopt a gradual strategy in which trekkers have ample opportunity to acclimatize themselves to ever-changing climatic conditions before proceeding to the other parts.

During the hikes or climbs, it is important to take breaks regularly so the body has time to adjust. We ascend slowly (usually between 300 and 1000 meters per day) for adequate sleep among even people with physical fitness, as this ensures that our bodies adapt to changes in air pressure or oxygen.

Changes in altitude can bring about unbearable sudden changes in the environment, making it impossible for some people to cope. As a result, there is less oxygen in the air, and that’s why your body gets so uncomfortable. Hence, one should hike at a slow and constant speed.

Mohare Danda Trek From Nagi Village Trek Cost

Due to the short duration of the trek and lack of permits, the Mohare Danda trek can be one of the cheapest treks in Nepal. However, do remember you will need extra permits, which will increase the overall cost if you venture into Ghorepani Poon Hill in addition to Mohare Danda Trek. 

Package tours to Mohare Danda do exist but are usually very expensive. 

However, the Mohare Danda Trek From Nagi Village only costs $650 per person. This cost does not include things like Food in Kathmandu, Personal expenses, etc. However, you will get guides, meals, accommodation and many more. 

Alternatives Trekking Adventure With Mohare Danda Trek

Mohare Danda Trek is set amid the Annapurna region and thus serves as a quiet substitute for conventional treks. Although Mohare Danda itself is an interesting destination, there are also Ghorepani Poon Hill and Khopra Danda, which make it possible for fans of the trekking tour to visit other unique natural sites accompanied by an unforgettable intercultural experience.

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek: A Sunrise Spectacle

Going for a trek in the Ghorepani Poon hill trek, one will find him/herself in a world of breathtaking views and cultural intensity. The magical sunrise sight of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri lies just some feet away from Mohare Danda and can be clearly experienced in Ghorepani Poon Hill. It will take you along rhododendron forests, typical Gurung villages, and the stoned trail, which can speak of age-old trading paths.

The buildup of suspense continues with each step that leads to the top until one sees the dawn at Poon Hill covering the white tops with pinkish and orange rays. A photographer’s paradise: a panoramic view from Poon Hill reveals the mighty Himalaya within a frame. This walk will take you through nature’s bounties and allow you to visit the friendly villages of Gyhorepani, Tadapani, and others.

Khopra Danda Trek: Beyond the Beaten Path

Those looking for a secluded experience can try Khopra Danda Trek, which takes trekkers through unspoiled wilderness and traditional mountain living. The trail starts from Nayapul, passing through the terraced fields, forests, and alpine meadows. On top of this, Khopra Ridge provides a spectacular scene of the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna massifs unveiling their majestic faces.

Trekking to Khopra Danda allows visitors to interact with the local community by staying at village homestays in Sewa or Swanta. The trekking becomes more complete with a chance to interact with the welcoming Gurung people, which gives a peep into their daily lives. The hike along it also touches Kaire Lake, which completes with a hint of mysticism.

Three Unique Trek Combinations 

Combining Mohare Dada, Ghoarepani Poonhill, and Khopra Danda is an extended approach involving a less strenuous walk for exploring the Annapurna region. First, get ACAP and TIMS cards, then start with the Mohare Danda trek. Enjoy the famous sunrise view from the Poon hill and walk slowly through Gorapani and up to Mohare Danda. Explore more off the beaten track for the Khopra Danda trail for peace amidst stunning nature and panorama. The carefully designed trek segment provides an extended tour of the beautiful Annapurna area, giving visitors plenty of time to appreciate this stunning scenery while minimising physical effort. Such a combination provides different varieties of landscapes, starting with the quiet forest of Mohare and ending up with the majestic sunrise display of Poon Hill. The varying scenes symbolize the rich beauty of the Annapurna region.


  • Q1. What is the best time for Nagi village Trek with Mohare Danda?

    Autumn and Spring season are considered the best season for trekking in any part of the Nepalese Himalayas. Similar to the other region treks, Nagi Village trek is best during this season. The weather during these seasons remains clear. The clear weather allows the trekkers to enjoy the captivating views of the mountains. Further trekking to this region during the spring season, you can see the blooming rhododendrons and other wildflowers throughout the trail. However, trekking to Nagi Village is possible throughout the year.

  • Mohare Danda Trek is done over five to nine days; hence, one can take time and walk easily. Others may stretch their journey to discover the surrounding area’s richness and natural surroundings, like at Ghorepani Poonhill or Khopda Danda. 

  • While WIFI is not always available, one will not be without coverage along the entire Mohare Danda distance. There could be signalling noise and wifi provision depending on available service in the tea houses along the hike. Trekkers should expect irregular connectivity.

  • Solo trekking is not allowed in Nepal, so I recommend having a guide for the Mohare Danda Trek. Guides are extremely helpful in understanding a path, finding direction, and providing vital info in an emergency. One can always hire a porter to help carry personal items and lessen their load. Preparation, such as carrying enough food and water, is necessary to ensure safety while walking.

  • Absolutely, yes, there are hot showers in the Mohare Danda Trek. Nevertheless, in places such as Mohare Danda, trekkers will be required to make a small contribution of about 100 – 200 to the owners of local lodges for the usage of hot showers. Therefore, it is better to prepare for different scenarios, and having a wet wipe for other cleaning options could be useful. Trekkers should be ready for many surprises, and wet wipes are handy for improvised hygiene arrangements.

  • Mohare Danda Trek may be slightly difficult but ideal for amateurs and expert climbers. Due to the good trails and the gradually increasing summits, as well as different kinds of landscape, the hike is not very hard to overcome.

  • Accommodation on the Mohare Danda Trek ranges from teahouses to community lodges. These offer basic yet cozy facilities, allowing one to interact with locals and fellow trekkers while enjoying the warmth of traditional Nepali hospitality.

  • The optimal time for the Mohare Danda Trek is during the spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) seasons. These periods offer clear skies, pleasant temperatures, and vibrant landscapes, enhancing the trekking experience.

  • Yes, the Mohare Danda Trek can be seamlessly combined with other routes, such as Ghoarepani Poonhill and Khopra Danda treks. This integration provides a comprehensive and extended trekking experience in the Annapurna region.

  • Trekkers are exposed to the rich cultural background of the area through interacting with locals, visiting old monasteries, and participating in cultural events. The culture makes trekking an even more enjoyable experience.

  • Acclimatize, take plenty of water, and prepare for unpredictable weather, which is important to trekkers. Mohare-Danda Trek will be worthwhile if one carries a basic first aid kit and follows experienced guides' advice.
