Mohare Danda Trek Introduction

Mohare Danda lies in the Annapurna trekking region. This hilltop lies near the famous trekking destination that is Poon Hill. Mohare Danda is a new trekking route by the local community people. Since it is a new trekking route, it is not as popular as the other trails. This trek is said to be the best Community Lodge Trekking Trail. This trek is also called as Annapurna Dhaulagiri Community Trek. This is the best short trek from Pokhara.
This trek takes you up to 3300m above sea level. Mohare Danda Trek offers you a panoramic view of the Manaslu, Annapurna, and Dhaulagiri Himalayan ranges. A few percentages of profit from the trek to this region go to the social development fund for this region which means your trek will indirectly be helping the community people. The green hills on the way will give you a peaceful walk to the destination. The interaction with the locals will get you information about their cultures and specialties. You will get to see the glorious sunrise over the mountains like never before.
The trekkers who have a short period and want to capture the natural beauty and mountains prefer these trekking routes. This trekking route can be suitable for beginners as well.
The trail passes through the Trishuli and Kali Gandaki rivers. Since our trail passes through Pokhara you will also get a short visit to famous places in Pokhara.
The route offers you magical mountain views and beautiful landscapes. From the Mohare Danda, you will see many mountain ranges including Nilgiri and Tukuche peaks. Visiting this place during spring would be more suitable.
