Trip level: easy (info?)
Maximum altitude: 3320 m

The Mohare Danda Eco community trek is a new trek in the Annapurna region. Set up as a community trek you will stay at a few teahouses run by and for the local Gurung and Magar community in the area. Despite being in the heart of the popular Annapurna region, Mohare Danda is far less crowded than the well-known trails in the region. From Poon Hill you will enjoy a lovely sunrise. This is one of several new community-managed projects in Nepal where the benefits from tourism reaches the whole community.
The trek starts at Dinuwa, not far from Pokhara. The trail passes through rhododendron and pine forest. After a few days hiking past local villages you will reach Mohare Danda. The community lodge stands on a steep ridge and offers beautiful panoramas of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges. Famous mountains like Mount Dhaulagiri (8167m), Nilgiri (7061m), Annapurna South (7219m) and Annapurna I (8091m) are all in this viewpoint. After Mohare Danda the 6 day trek will follow the trail over Poon Hill towards Ulleri. The 8 day trail will lead you to the remote lodge of Danda Kharka and afterwards towards the end of this nice little trek.
