Comprehensive overview

Mohare Danda Trek is another stunning trek in the Annapurna region, near a gorge between Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains. It is an ideal trek to see the Nepali countryside and a perfect alternative to the famous Poon Hill trek. Mahabir Pun, a prominent Nepali social entrepreneur, established this trek route.

Your trek starts from Kathmandu as we take you on a drive to Pokhara from Kathmandu. The journey will take around seven hours. Pokhara is known as the tourist capital of Nepal. This city provides spectacular views of several Himalayan ranges and several serene lakes. 
After a day at Pokhara, it is time to reach the trek region that begins from Galeshwor. Again, you will be traveling on a bus. You will deboard the bus at Galeshwor, visit the sacred Galoshwor Temple and then head hike to Bansh Kharka.
 
From Bans Kharka, you will trek to Naangi village, where Mahabir Pun was born. Mahabir Pun has initiated several economic activities in his village, such as producing paper from locally grown plants, a medicinal nursery, and others.

After Naangi comes to the Mohare Danda, but to reach Mohare Danda you need to pass through several lush jungles with birch, rhododendron, and oak trees. The trail ascends substantially and may challenge you. However, you will completely forget your physical exhaustion when you reach the Mohare Danda, as stunning close-up views of several Himalayas, including Nil Giri, Annapurna South, Machhapuchhre (Fish Tail Mountain), and Dhaulagiri greet you.

You will be spending a night at Mohare Danda so that the following morning, you can see the magnificent dawn breaking over the Himalayas from the top of Mohare Danda.
After enjoying the views from  Mohare Danda, you will travel to Duerali and from Deurali to Ghandruk village. Ghandruk is a beautiful Gurung village overlooking the grand views of Mt Annapurna, Gangapurna, Hiunchuli, and several others.

From Ghandruk, you will trek to Kimche and board a bus to get back to Pokhara. Your trek ends in Pokhara. You are free to spend your time as you wish in Pokhara. After fully enjoying your stay in Pokhara, you can return to Kathmandu on a bus or through a twenty-minute flight.

This package does not cover personal bills (alcoholic, hot (tea, coffee), and cold drinks) in tea houses/ lodges/ cafes, except standard meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner with seasonal fruits).

Best Time for Mohare Danda trek

You can complete the Mohare Danda trek in any season. However, your experience differs slightly based on the weather differences. The trek trails are a little busier in the spring and autumn compared to the winter or summer (monsoon) seasons.

If you are a little laid-back and easygoing person, we advise you to trek in spring (March, April, May) or autumn (September, October, November). The cool temperatures, almost no chance of rainfall, and beautiful mountain views due to clear skies make trekking during these seasons desirable.

The summer (May, June, and July) months are a little hot but wet due to active monsoons. Due to monsoons, the skies can become clouded, and the rain makes the trails slippery. However, the raging rivers, green forest foliage, and stunning rainfalls can look very attractive. 

The winter (December, January, and February) brings snowfalls at high altitudes, but the clear skies and mountain peaks with fresh snow look stunning.

Here is a brief snapshot of the weather condition in the high altitudes at Mohare Danda trek regions during each season. 

 

Spring (March, April, May)
The temperature is cool, the rainfall is low, the skies clear, and the mountains look incredible. For this reason, trekkers come to this trek region in droves. The mean temperatures at Mohare Danda are between 5 to 15℃. The lower trek regions are warmer, making the trek climatically desirable. Trekking gains pace after March as tourists flock to enjoy the views of red, pink, and white rhododendrons at elevations up to 3,000m. The temperature starts to rise from mid-March. 

 

Summer (June, July, August)
Summer in Nepal begins in June and ends in August. The summer heat is tolerable in Nepal, and trekking in higher elevations is quite pleasant. However, summer in Nepal coincides with the monsoon. The monsoon rain causes the trails to be wet and slippery. The daily temperatures at high trek elevations range from 15 to 25°C during the day and 5 to 15°C at night. The rain causes the plants to bloom, and the whole trek region's vegetations look lush and green. 

 

Autumn (September, October, November)
Autumn, like spring, is a season that brings travelers around the world to Mohare Danda. The moderate temperatures, mild wind, clear skies, and low precipitation allows superb mountain views making autumn a wonderful trek season. 

The nights are equally alluring, with clear skies allowing fantastic views of the heavens up above. At high altitudes, day temperatures can reach 20°C but come down to 5°C at night. The greens that blossomed during monsoon fade to beautiful golden/amber color providing spectacular contrast with the backdrop of clear blue skies. 

The environment is clean, the lowlands are lush, and the crops ripen in the fields. The biggest Nepali festivals, like Dashain, Tihar, and Chhat fall during this season and add a festive mood to the whole country.

 

Winter (December, January, February)
Winter treks to Mohare Danda are also mildly popular. The high trek regions get a bit cold during the winter, but this excites a different breed of trekkers. The day temperatures at high trek elevations dip to 5 °C, tempting winter-loving trekkers. The nights are colder at around -5 °C. Late December and early February are the coldest time in Nepal. 

However, from mid-February, the weather warms up, and days become very pleasant. The clear skies and fresh snow on mountain tops look incredibly stunning. If you have cold allergies, you should not aim to trek during this time. Otherwise, you can still enjoy the Mohare Danda trek in winter. 

 

Group/Single

We conduct private (single) as well as group treks. For a group of 14 or more, we add an assistant guide. We can lead all group sizes. If you have your own group, the larger your group, the more discount you can get. However, you will not get discounts for the trekking groups that we assemble. 

 

Trip grade and fitness

Mohare Danda trek is an easy-grade trek in the Annapurna region. You will be hiking for about four to five hours, taking regular breaks for rest, taking pictures, and enjoying the scenery. The trails can be straightforward or gently incline or decline as they pass through forests, villages, and farmlands. Almost any person can complete the trek. This would be a great trek for families. However, if you have heart, lung, or blood diseases, you must consult your doctor before booking the trek. 

 

Typical day

Each day will bring a new trekking experience that includes hiking, climbing, enjoying the sceneries, taking pictures, trying new food, and exploring new places. Our trek leader will accompany you while providing information about the new regions as you visit them. Our porters will carry the luggage, but we expect you to bring a regular day pack to keep your valuables and essential documents safe. 

We will serve you lunch often mid-way to the next destination. After lunch, you will rest for an hour and resume the hike. The afternoon hike will be shorter, around two or three hours. Once you reach the destination for that day, you are free to explore nearby places before it gets dark.

We will serve you dinner at around seven. After dinner, your guide will brief you about the next day’s plan. Then, you can engage in various activities before going to bed. You can play board games such as cards, monopoly, or chess. If you have a book, you can read it or simply converse with your fellow companions. Most of our clients also learn fun and light words with our team. 

 

Communication

Wi-Fi is available at the lodges/tea houses in the trek regions so you can remain in contact with your friends and families. However, you might need to pay a small fee to avail of the services. You can also buy a local sim in Kathmandu, but depending on your location and the service provider, you may not get a smooth service. Discovery World Trekking remains in contact with all its trek teams at least once a day through the trek leader. We communicate with all our trek teams daily to ensure that the trek is progressing as planned and everyone is comfortable.

 

Travel Insurance

The Mohare Danda trek is a moderate to easy trek. There are minimum chances of catching altitude sickness. However, this trek is not a regular hike, and you need to purchase suitable travel insurance that includes helicopter rescue at an altitude of up to 3,300m along with medicinal costs. In emergencies, we will use your insurance to plan an effective rescue. 

 

Passport and visa

All foreigners, except Indians, require a visa to visit Nepal. However, citizens from most countries can get an on-arrival visa at Tribhuvan International Airport and immigration checkpoints along Nepal-India and Nepal-China borders. To apply for the on-arrival visa, you will need a passport with at least six months of validity, a passport-size photo, and visa fees. The current visa fee is USD50 for a 30-day stay. 

Children under the age of 10 receive free visas. Similarly, citizens from SAARC (Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Maldives) and China also get free visas with some limitations. 

However, nationals from Nigeria, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Cameroon, Somalia, Liberia, Ethiopia, Iraq, Palestine, and Afghanistan are not entitled to on-arrival visas. So, if you are a national of these countries, you must contact your local Nepali embassy.

The Nepal government can change the visa policy without notice. Hence, for the latest information about the visa, please visit ​​https://www.immigration.gov.np/.

 

Money Exchange

Nepali Rupees (NPR or Rs.) is the Nepali currency. 
1 USD = ~130 NPR.

Though you can bring a traveler’s check, we advise you to bring cash (major currencies) and exchange them for Nepali Rupees in Kathmandu. Though a traveler’s check is more secure, you will face lengthy bank processes and high commissions to cash a traveler's check. Depending on the bank, the banks can charge 4 percent or more to cash your traveler’s check. 

You can easily exchange your (major) foreign currency at legal money exchanges all over Thamel in Kathmandu. These money exchanges display their ongoing rates to the public. Some hotels will also cash small amounts of foreign currency. If you have Indian Rupees (INR), ensure that you only have INR notes of 100 and 2,000 as these are the only (INR) notes legal in Nepal.

You can also withdraw Nepali Rupees from ATMs all over Kathmandu. Some of these ATMs are open 24/7. However, the service charge is Rs. 500 for Rs. 35,000 withdrawal. Since the trek regions do not have money exchanges, you should exchange your currency in Kathmandu based on your spending habit. We estimate that you will need around USD 10 to 20 per trek day to cover miscellaneous expenses such as hot drinks, alcohol, Wi-Fi use, etc.

Since most banks in Asia do not accept old, torn, or faded foreign currency, you should bring new and crisp bills.

Luggage

It is always great to travel light, especially so for long treks. If you need guidelines on what to pack, view the equipment section. You can store excess luggage at your hotel or Discovery World Trekking store. We will assign porters to carry your luggage, but your luggage weight limit is 9 kg. We do not allow our porters to carry more than 18 kg of luggage. So, we assign one porter for every two trekkers. In addition, we expect you to bring a regular backpack to carry your valuables and essential documents. 

 

Trek safety

Discovery World Trekking guarantees client safety, satisfaction, and security. Our trek teams carry all the standard gear, equipment, and essential items, such as first aid kits. If a trek member falls sick, your trek leader decides whether to continue the trek or descend immediately based on the overall situation. In emergencies, we will deploy a helicopter to bring back an affected trekker to safety (funded by insurance). Moreover, for an added layer of safety, we will trek together as a group

 

Discovery World Trekking crew

Our government-licensed trek leaders/Sherpas will accompany you as you trek to your destinations. Porters will carry your luggage, however, we also expect you to bring with you a small backpack for your valuables and essential documents.

Our trek lead/guides come from the remote high Himalayas and they can easily endure the high altitudes due to their upbringing. All of our employees are precious to us. We pay them well and cover their accommodations, food, drinks, and insurance. They receive medical care when ill or injured. At Discovery world trekking, we believe that only happy people can keep others happy. Hence, we try our best to keep our employees happy. 

Our trek guides:

  • have a government-authorized trek guide certificate
  • are trained in extensive wilderness first aid
  • speak English and one other language
  • have rock climbing experience 
  • have completed biodiversity and conservation training.

 

Responsible Travel

Discovery World Trekking understands the need for conserving trek regions. We know if we do not save our trek regions from adverse effects today, in the future no tourists will visit these regions in the future. Hence, we partner with Kathmandu Environmental Education Project (KEEP) to organize eco-friendly trips. We always try our best to leave only our footprints behind in trek regions. Our goal is to leave the campsites in better condition than when we arrived. 

 

Booking and payment

Discovery World Trekking is a Nepal-government registered, bonded, and licensed trek and tour operator in service for over a decade. We are also members of the Trekking Agency Association of Nepal (TAAN) and the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA). Hence, you can book our trek/tours with us in confidence.

We require 10% of the trek cost as advance to confirm the booking. You can pay using bank transfer, Wise, or online through our website. The rest of the trek cost is due when you arrive in Kathmandu. Once in Kathmandu, you can pay the remaining amount in cash, through bank transfer, Wise or credit cards. 

We will also email you the payment details, including the modes of payment available. We request you to send essential documents - passport copy, passport-size photos, and insurance certificate within a week of trek booking. We need these documents to acquire trek permits, book accommodations, arrange transport, and conduct other paperwork required for the trip.

 

Tipping

Nepali culture accepts tipping and views it as a testimony to great service. The tip amount should reflect the trip cost, length of trip, and quality of service received. We advise you to tip as a group at the end of the trek. 

 

Last-minute booking

Though it is always good to plan your travel, for those unable, Discovery World Trekking has a provision for a last-minute booking. To take advantage of this service, you must clear 100% of the trip cost 24 hours before the intended trek departure date. Discovery World Trekking is forever ready to conduct the treks. However, in case of last-minute booking, you cannot hold us accountable for trek delays due to circumstances beyond our control, such as bad weather, landslides, and hotel unavailability.
