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 with time for a nice meal and 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.

Day 1 : Fly, Drive, and Trek
After breakfast, a 30-minute flight takes you to Pokhara, with stunning views of the Himalayas on a clear day. From there you will have a 4-hour private transport to Beni to begin the trek!  A short trek to Galeshwar will be a good warm-up before stopping for lunch. After you’ve re-fueled you’ll be off to Benskharka, a 3 hour trek (1526m).

Day 2 : Benskharka to Nangi
Today we gain a bit more altitude, while taking it slowly to acclimatise. After breakfast, you have about a 4-hour trek before stopping for lunch. Another 3 to 4 hours walking in the afternoon brings you to Nangi village at 2300m where you stay the night. Nangi is a busy village with mushroom farming and paper making that you will have time to see when you arrive.(Trekking Time 7-8 Hours)

Day 3 : Nangi to Mohare Danda
This is the day you reach Mohare Danda! It is a 7 hour walk through Rhododendron forests and on to high mountain grasslands where the trek will be above the forest. On clear days there are great views of Pokhara down in the valley and sweeping views of the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Range. Over dinner you can enjoy an amazing sunset right from the dining room!(Trekking Time 7 hours)

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)

Day 5 : Khibang to Tikot
Today is relatively flat (Nepalese flat), and depending on how fast we decide to go, lunch will either be along the trail or on arrival in Tikot. Once at the guesthouse in Tikot, you can relax and enjoy the final night in the mountains, away from cars, crowds and noise.(Trekking Time 6 hours)

Day 6 : Tikot to Pokhara
The last day's trekking will take about 4 hours to reach the end of the trail at BAISARI, where a local vehicle will be waiting to take you all the way back to Pokhara. A late afternoon arrival at the hotel allows time to wash up, unwind a bit, and get ready to head out for a relaxing evening. The night is yours to explore Pokhara, do some shopping or relax in one of the many bars or cafes(Trekking Time 4 hours)

Day 7 : Explore Pokhara
Today you can chill out in the beautiful mountain town of Pokhara. Do some shopping or photography, or for the more adventurous there is boating or tandem paragliding!
