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 Mohare Danda and the tranquil Muldai Peak 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 Nayapul, 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. From Mohare you will hike over the famous Poon Hill towards Dobato. It is only half an hour climb to the Muldai Peak for another spectacular sunrise view. Little Paradise is a great name for a lovely teahouse tucked away on a hill top, hidden in bushes and forest. In Ghandruk you will see original local Guring houses. A jeep drive will take you back to Pokhara.
