Mohare Dada Trek within the Annapurna region is definitely a new experience to alternative route of Ghorempani for the trekkers that support Magar communities. It’s main purpose is to create sustainable economic stability by promoting tourism potentialities and possibilities in this area. Exploring the unexplored region, trekkers can enjoy the wonderful culture, nature, friendly people and stunning view of one of the longest chains of mountains. Mohare Danda (3300m) is the closest point to view the massive Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. The Mohare Danda Trekking is the perfect alternative of the overcrowded Ghorepani – Poonhill Trekking.
Mohare Danda is the ‘high road’ alternative to the Ghorepani Trek, and follows an alternative trail up from Pokhara itself up to Banskharka, along to Nangi and Mohare. The treks are along scented forests of oak, rhododendron and spruce and sometimes along exposed ridges that offer exhilarating views of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South dead ahead and the forked summit of Machapuchre to the east. You have a long circuit lasting a week to Dhankharka, or you can do a shorter five-day version fast-tracking through Tikot.
Mohare Danda Trek is an initiative of Magsaysay winner Mahabir Pun for developing a unique concept of eco-trekking that benefits the environment and development of the area.
