Mohare Danda Trek, Annapurna Region, Nepal

Spend an amazing week in the Himalayan Mountains!  Explore the Annapurna region via a new route as yet undiscovered by the masses. Be among the first to blog about this trek, be among the few to take in the awe-inspiring close-ups of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri.

The Mohare Danda trek takes place over 9 days, 8 nights bringing you deep into the community of spectacular Nepal. The trail takes you from rhododendron forest to magnificent views of the Himalayan giants, from greenery to glorious sunrise. Stay in community lodges and contribute to sustainable tourism.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Close-ups of two of the world’s 14 highest mountains
  • Off the beaten path with spectacular views all to yourself
  • Traipsing across the Annapurna foothills accompanied by the Nepali national flower, the rhododendron and snow-capped peaks
  • Healthy, delicious food prepared by our trekking chef

Upon arrival in Kathmandu, you will be transferred to your hotel for a good night’s sleep. The following morning you will take the domestic flight to Pokhara, the beautiful town where you enter the Annapurna region, and where the adventure begins.

Private ground transport will take you from Pokhara to the trailhead in Beni. We will take it slow the first day with an average trekking time of 4 hours before getting to our village lodge for the night. The next two days will be longer days where we will gain altitude gradually to allow our bodies to acclimatise. Day 4 of the trek is where we plan an early morning to see the sunrise over the Himalayas. The next two days will be spent descending with the last day being an easy 4-hr trek out to trail end. We will drive to Pokhara and you will have a complete free day to explore Pokhara and take in this lovely mountain town. On our last day, we take the morning flight from Pokhara to Kathmandu and say goodbye to our wonderful guide and team.

Day 4 : Mohare Danda to Khibang

The reward for an early wake-up is sunrise over the Himalayas. This is a spectacular sight that you’ll remember for a long time! After sunrise, the trek heads down from Mohare, along a stunning ridge with views of Annapurna South to the east and Dhaulagiri to the west. You will arrive in Khibang (2260m) after a 6 hour hike,  a much easier day than the previous ones. You’ll stay at another villager’s home and get a good dinner in the community-dining hall. Take in all the sights, sounds and tranquility and enjoy your penultimate night in the mountains.(Trekking Time 6 hours)
