Trip Overview

The Mohare Danda Trek is a good choice for trekkers looking for a new destination in the Annapurna region. This trek offers a broad range of stunning landscapes, calm and solitude, and exposure to a variety of Himalayan cultures. The magnificent Mohare Hill, as well as the panoramic sunrise views of Mt. Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, and Nilgiri, are the main attractions in this area.

The trial is a newly opened trekking trail in the Annapurna region that will introduce you to the Magar people’s great hospitality. We stay at community-run lodges along the Mohare Danda trail, with profits going to support local schools and people in the area. This trip goes through some interesting traditional villages, beautiful green forests, and high alpine pastures where you can see the beautiful Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges.

Highlights of Mohare Danda Trek

  • Scenic Drive to Galeshwor.
  • Beautiful landscape and vegetation in the regions.
  • Cultural lifestyle of Magar ethnic people.
  • Terrace field, Pasture Land, Kaligandaki River.
  • Spectacular view of Mountains – Dhaulagiri & Annapurna Range Including Nilgiri peak.
  • Beautiful Baskharka, Nangi, and Tilkot village.
  • The real Nepali way of life in the mid-hilly region of Nepal.

The Mohare Danda Trek begins when you arrive in Kathmandu’s bustling and historic valley, from where we will either continue driving or fly to Pokhara. Pokhara is well-known among domestic and international travelers from all over the world for its clean atmosphere, natural beauty, and lakes. We drive for 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. From Baskharka to Danda Kateri, we steadily go up, 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.

We had an unbelievable adventure completing the Mardi Himal Trek in January 2023. Our guide Rajendra (Raj), and porter Rajesh  were professional, fun, energetic, and knowledgeable about not only the trek we were on but about many others in the area.

I'm so happy I went with Nepal Hiking Team. From the moment I arrived at the hotel, I knew I made the right choice. The hotel was in a great area. Bars, restaurants, clubs, shops were all within a 10 minute or less walk from the hotel.

I completed the 14 day Annapurna Circuit early December 2022, thank you so much to Surya and Rabin, who both went out of their way to make this trip, that I'd been planning so long,and  memorable. They were always checking in with me during the hike

Namaste! I highly recommend Nepal Hiking Team for your trekking adventure in the beautiful Himalayan Mountains of Nepal. This was my first trip to Nepal and additionally my first ever muli-day trek. Annapurna Base Camp Trek became a dream of mine about

We completed the 15-day Manaslu Circuit trek with Nepal Hiking Team in late November 2022.

The scenery of the Manaslu region is stunning and far more beautiful than we had imagined. The weather was excellent!
