    Route Overview to Mohare Danda

    The Mohare Danda Trek begins when you arrive in Kathmandu's bustling and historic valley, from where we will continue driving or fly to Pokhara. Pokhara is well-known among domestic and international travelers worldwide for its clean atmosphere, natural beauty, and lakes. We drive 3 to 4 hours from Pokhara to Galeshwor, where the Mohare Trekking trail begins, and arrive at Baskharka after crossing a suspension bridge beneath the stunning Kaligandaki River. We steadily go up from Baskharka to Danda Kateri, passing through Rhododendron, Pine, and Oak forests.

    The trek continues to Nangi (where we will spend the night), from where we will follow the path to Mohare Danda. From there, we gradually climb to the Hampal pass (3200 meters) for lunch. Then we go up to Mohare Danda, the trek's highest point. From the Mohare, we gradually descend to Fulkharka, following the rhododendron till we reach Danda Kharka. We then go through the magnificent lake in the direction of Tilkot. After waking up early, watch the beautiful sunrise over the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Himalayan Ranges.

    We leave Tikot and take the down trail to Tippling, where we get in the car and drive back to Pokhara. We'll return to Kathmandu and drop you off at the airport according to your travel schedule. The Mohare Danda trip concludes with many lifelong memories.
