Trip Overview

Mohare Danda: A Hidden Gem in the Annapurna Foothills

Discover the serenity of Mohare Danda Trek, a new trekking route nestled amidst the Annapurna foothills. Often referred to as the Mohare Danda Community Trek, this journey supports local communities along its path, allowing trekkers to contribute sustainably while enjoying the splendors of nature. The trail unfolds with mesmerizing vistas, untouched villages, lush forests, and warm-hearted locals.

As you make your ascent, you'll be enveloped by a green canopy comprising rhododendron, oak, fir, and pine trees, occasionally interrupted by vibrant orange orchards. The essence of local life can be felt when you halt at villages, revealing the unique traditions and ways of the people. Gaze upon the majestic Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Ranges, and atop Mohare Danda hill, witness a spellbinding landscape adorned with peaks like Mt. Nilgiri, Mt. Tukuche, and Mt. Machhapuchhre.

Your trek commences with a picturesque drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara, leading further to Galeshwar, your trek's starting point. As you maneuver through woodlands and challenging terrains, villages like Banskharka and Nadi Village dot your journey until you reach the tranquil Mohare Danda. From here, a descent to Nayapul marks the trek's conclusion, followed by a drive back to Pokhara.

For those yearning for a peaceful escape from urban chaos, the Mohare Danda Trek is a perfect fit. Less frequented by tourists, it offers a serene environment compared to the well-known Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek.
