About Trip

Mohare Danda Trek provides just about everything an inquisitive traveler would expect from a trekking experience in the Himalayas, Magnificent peaks, an abundance of pristine nature and the friendliest mountain people you are ever likely to meet.

The magnificent peaks of Machhapuchhre (Fish Tail) 6997 meter, Annapurna South 7219 meterDhaulagiri 8167 meter (7th tallest mountain in the earth) and Nilgiri 7061 meter are never far away.

Mohare Danda Eco Community Lodge Trek In Lower Annapurna Region

Trekking along Mohare Danda is a pure virgin trail, you are unlikely to meet many others on the way. Instead, your time is spent with the local farmers, yak herders, and the local communities where you are welcomed for who you are and not just another tourist. In fact, the whole concept of this new trail is participation by everybody, with the wealth travelers provide being plowed back locally for the improvement of village schools for example as well as settlement infrastructure such as the internet relay station that has been assembled near Mohare Hill which at present is the highest relay station in Nepal providing internet to the remote villages for local schools and health posts that use tele-medicine. The system links up with hospitals in Kathmandu to provide better healthcare in the villages, as well as providing free internet facilities for trekkers throughout the trail. In this respect, it is very much a “hands-on” trek where people are positively encouraged to participate in local life. With so much biodiversity at hand along with the mighty backbone of the Himalayas never far away, the rewards are clear to see. The sensational mountain vistas from Mohare Danda and Khopra Ridge are exceptional highlights.

The final destination could not be more alluring; the sacred lake named Khayar Lake, the lake according to local people, was placed there tenderly by the Gods and has over the centuries become a pilgrimage destination for them, especially on the occasion of sacred-thread replacement day (Full Moon in August). People believe that all their wishes will be fulfilled after praying at the lake. They also believe that if they bathe in the water, they will be granted salvation after death. Married women who have yet to conceive also visit the lake to ask for fertility.

Mohare Danda Trek appeals to those looking for an eco-friendly moderate trek experience that offers them not only the whole splendor the Himalayas provides but also a more intimate glimpse into Nepal and its people.

What an amazing experience!

Rating:  

We contacted more than 10 agencies in Nepal and fortunately we chose Nepal Trekking Experts just because of their excellent reviews and very smooth communication. By exchanging some emails with Rajesh, we got a nice feeling with him and his agency. So finally we chose Nepal Trekking Experts who turned our dream into a reality.

Since we read a lot about Annapurna being overcrowded, Rajesh recommended Mohare Danda with Khopra Danda Trek which was a lifetime experience for us. Again we appreciated his knowledge and professionalism. The trek was a bit challenging for us but very worth it. The Mohare Danda Trek with Khopra ridge is a perfect way of contributing to the local community, avoiding the crowds and enjoying the peaceful nature. The views from Mohare danda and Khopra ridge were just an outstanding.

We hired a guide, Rabin and a porter Ram. They were very supportive, informative, hardworking and just fabulous. The trek was effortless while trekking with them. We can’t wait to trek with Nepal Trekking Experts soon.
