Overview

Traverse through Annapurna’s foothills to Mohare Danda off the beaten path. The trekking route is fairly new and is ideal for trekkers who want a peaceful adventure and solitude amidst the grand Annapurna mountains spread across the horizon. The local community and lifestyle are pristine, and you get to witness the HImalayan way of life up close. In this short trek, you can explore culture, mountains and nature at their finest.

 

Mohare village boasts panoramic view of the gigantic Annapurna range and also Dhaulagiri. At 3,300m, the village is not at a very high elevation and hence is optimal for trekkers of all fitness levels and experience. The sunrise and sunset from here are stunning, and set in an alpine terrain and blooming rhododendrons, the views will be nothing short of extraordinary – pulled right off the pages of a fairy tale.

 

Unlike other trekking areas in Annapurna region, Mohare Danda is much less commercialized, and definitely a great destination to discover pristine Himalayan foothills.

 

Best months: January to May; October to December

We begin sightseeing today after breakfast. Kathmandu is known for several religious and historical monuments that are worth exploring to understand the culture and country better.

Pashupatinath temple complex holds great religious significance for Hindus, and is among the most important pilgrimage sites.
