The Mohare Danda Eco-Communities Trek in Nepal: A Sustainable Adventure

The Mohare Danda Trek is an exceptional alternative trek into the majestic Annapurna Himalayas, offering a unique and sustainable adventure through eco-friendly communities.

The trek typically spans six days, providing an excellent alternative to the well-known Poon Hill Trek. This less-crowded and newly discovered trail offers the opportunity to witness the breathtaking Annapurna Himalayan Ridges from Mohare Danda Hill.

It’s not just about the two treks; the entire trail is dotted with viewpoints that offer mesmerizing vistas throughout the journey. The Mohare Danda Khopra Community Trek, in particular, makes this package truly special and a must-do for travelers seeking an authentic and sustainable adventure.
