The Mohare Danda Trek is a suitable option for beginners, as it is relatively easy and leads through secluded villages. Along the way, trekkers can enjoy a panoramic view of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges. The trek can begin from either Tikhedhunga or Galeshwor and will take you through traditional magar villages, dense forests, and terraced fields.

A small beautiful hill between Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains in the district of Myagdi, Mohare Danda is a lesser-known trekking destination in the Annapurna Sanctuary. The place is a stunning destination for anyone seeking a unique experience in the Annapurna Region. Mohare Danda Trek is a less busy trekking route than other trekking trails in Nepal like the Annapurna Base Camp trek, Mardi Himal Trek, Everest Base Camp trek, Poonhill Sunrise Trek, and more.

Merely 5 km from Poon hill, Mohare Danda Trek is also called Myagdi Community Eco Trek or Mohare Dada Community Trek. The trail passes through hills, forests, and grassland. You will also witness rhododendron flowers all over the path if you do this trek during spring.

Why you will love the Mohare Danda Trek?
    • Rhododendron forests are particularly beautiful in the spring when the trees are in full bloom, and the hills are covered in a riot of colour.
    • Mohare Dada and Poonhill viewpoint is particularly stunning at sunrise when the peaks are bathed in the warm light of the rising sun.
    • Mohare- Poonhill and Ghandruk trek is an excellent option for a shorter trek with a cultural experience. These three treks can be easily combined for a more comprehensive experience.

Combining the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek and Mohare Danda Trek into one itinerary is a perfect way to experience the best of the Annapurna region. Also, it can be combined with Mardi Himal Base Camp. The combination of these two treks offers an ideal balance of easy and moderate trekking, cultural diversity, and natural beauty. The Mohare trek route takes you through charming Magar villages, lush Rhododendron forests, and breathtaking mountain views, including Mt. Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Annapurna South, Machhapuchhre, and Himchuli.

 Mohare dada trek routes culturally rich communities of Magar and Gurung ethnicities that provide a chance to experience their unique customs and traditions. We will also peek at the various rituals and traditions practised by the people of the local communities of that place.

Mohare Danda Trekking ensures a unique experience and a splendid view of the Himalayas, hills, and valleys. Mohare dada trek is accessible for all kinds of age groups so you can do it even with your kids.

A Short and rewarding trek from Pokhara 

The starting point of most of the trekking routes of the Annapurna region is Pokhara. This trek is a unique, short, and secluded trek known to a few people. This route is perfect for those looking for a moderately easy and rewarding trekking experience in the Annapurna region of Nepal.

The combination of natural beauty, cultural diversity, and breathtaking mountain views make this trek one of the most popular and memorable in the world. Furthermore, this trek can be extended with a motive to explore Khopra Ridge making it an entirely new trek called Mohare Danda Khopra Trek.


Day 1: Drive from Pokhara to Patichaur and Trek to Lespar:
The first day of the Mohare Danda Trek starts with a drive from Pokhara to Patichaur which takes about 1:45 to 2 hrs along the Baglung highway. After we reach Nayapul we check in our permits and drive to Patichaur. Patichaur is one of the largest cities in Parbat district. The drive from Nayapul to Patichaur takes about 25 - 30 min.

We start our trek from Patichaur to Lespar which takes about 5 - 6 hrs. The path from Patichaur to Lespar is straight and slightly ascending so it will be an easy hike. The trek ends with an overnight stay at Lesphar.

Day 2: Lespar to Mohare Danda:
After breakfast, the second day of the Mohare Danda Trek starts with hiking from Lespar. The route is mostly ascending and the trails are trekking trails, with no motor roads. The route begins with an ascending climb over the stairs for about 2 - 2:30 hr. After the stairs, we trek along the forest way with slight ascend and straight paths. During this trial, we can see the hills and valley scenes. The trek from Lespar to Mohare Danda takes about 6 - 7 hrs in total.

After we reach Mohare Danda, we can see the surreal views of mountain peaks like Dhaulagiri Mt, Fishtail, Tukuche Peak, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Nilgiri, and many others. 
Overnight stay at Mohare Danda, after enjoying the sunset view from here.

Day 3: Mohare Danda to Ghorepani:
We wake up early for the mesmerizing sunrise views from Mohare Danda when the first sunrays fall on the white mountains. After that, we have our breakfast and trek towards Ghorepani. The route is descending with straight trails along the way. 
The trek from Mohare Danda to Ghorepani is also a short one. You can also call it a rest day after yesterday’s long trek. The overall trek takes about 2 - 3 hrs and we pass through Poon Hill during this trek. You can enjoy the view from Poonhill now and also come back from Ghorepani for the sunrise and sunset view as it only takes about 30 - 45 min ascend from Ghorepani. 

Day 4: Trek from Ghorepani - Poonhill and Ghorepani - Ulleri - Hile:
We wake up early in the morning for the Poonhill sunrise view, and trek for about 45 min, ascending on the stairway. The Poonhill is very crowded compared to Mohare Danda and you can see many tourists in the viewpoint as well. After enjoying the unforgettable sunrise from Poon Hill we trek back to Ghorepani, and have our breakfast. 

After breakfast, we start our hiking towards Ulleri. The hike from Ghorepani to Ulleri takes about 4 hours, and the trail is pretty easy as it is mostly descending and straight. We have our lunch here at Ulleri and then start our trekking towards Hile. 

We just have lunch and the trail is straight and slightly descending so we reach Hile from Ulleri in about two hours. After we reach Hile we take a Jeep from Hile to Pokhara and drive to Pokhara. The drive from Hile to Ulleri takes about 2:30 min and you will be back in Pokhara early.

Mohare Danda Trek- Annapurna Balcony Trek Company Reviews


Memories made for life!

Traveling Asia for a couple of months we visited Nepal rather spontaneously. We knew we wanted to do a trek but had no idea where to go or what to do. After doing some research on the web we visited Mohan in his office in Pokhara. We had a rough idea of what we were looking for. We wanted to do a trek that wasn’t too crowded. Still, we wanted to go places where we could enjoy those amazing views of the Himalayas.
With the help of Mohan we figured out our personalized itinerary that would take us to Mohare Danda, Khopra Data and Muldai. After agreeing to do the trek he organized everything in the shortest of time so we could start the very next day. We had an amazing trek and the fantastic experiences will remain in our memories for a a lifetime.
Breathtaking sunrises at Khopra ridge and Muldai peak are just two of the many highlights we experienced.
Special praise goes out to Buddhiman though, our guide on this trek. We could not have asked for a better guide. Buddhiman took such great care of us, he was very attentive and thanks to his tremendous experience he knew what we could do and what would be to much for us. He made sure that throughout the trek we wouldn‘t miss anything. He led us to the most incredible view points and provided us with a lot of information. He also took best of care in regard of our culinary needs. He even stepped into the kitchen and helped preparing the meals for us. Beside being an exceptional guide Buddhiman is also a great entertainer. He has such an amazing humor and is man of many, many talents. At the same time Buddhiman is a very smart man and has such a profound knowledge about the mountains of Nepal, Nepali society and history. We learned so many things from him and are so grateful for everything he has shared with us. We look back to our trek with greatest of memories.
Mohan and Buddhiman you guys made this trek a 5 Star experience!!! Thank you so much. Thomas and Christian
