Mohare Danda trek is a popular hiking route located in the Annapurna region of Nepal. It is a relatively new trekking route that offers magnificent panoramic views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges.
One of the highlights of the Mohare Danda trek is reaching the Mohare Danda viewpoint, which is located at an altitude of 3,313 meters. From here, you can enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges, including views of Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) and Nilgiri peaks. Furthermore, Machapuchare (6,993 meters) is a holy Mountain in Nepal situated in the Annapurna massive.
The trek begins in the city of Pokhara and takes around 6-8 days to complete. The route passes through traditional Gurung and Magar villages where you can experience the local culture and lifestyle. Additionally, the path leads through beautiful forests of rhododendron and oak trees, which are especially beautiful during the spring season when they are in full bloom.
A trek to Mohare danda is considered to be a relatively easy trek, making it suitable for all levels of trekkers. However, it is still important to be physically fit and to have some previous hiking experience. March to May and from September to November months are the best time to hike Mohara danda when the weather is dry and the views are clear.
Overall, the Mohare Danda trek is a great alternative to some of the more popular trekking routes in the Annapurna region, offering amazing views, cultural experiences, and a peaceful trekking experience.

Best time to hike to Mohare Danda viewpoint.
There are mainly two major hiking seasons in Nepal and they are Spring and Autumn. In the spring season, you can see thriving colorful Rohodondrons and many other wildflowers that make the hike more pretty. The whole tree turns red, pink, and white with rhododendron flowers. Vacationers reach Mohare hill passing across the terraces, rhododendrons jungle, and Magar villages.
Hike in other months like September, October, November, and December are marked another top best time to explore. In the autumn season, the monsoon is over and the weather gets fresh, sunny, and blue sky. You can see wild lovely flowers on the nature trail. During those months, the weather stays constantly clear sky, so travelers can see the great mountain view from the hilltop.
Hiking Mohare danda is also possible in December, January, and February. Around wintertime, the temperature is freezing cold weather but nice with enough sun, and the trail is often clear without snow. The hike at Mohare hill station has easy trek difficulty and is possible to hike at any time throughout the year.

Mohare Danda Trek Review
Mohare Danda trek with Nepali Friends
Finally…. we did our trekking to Nagi Narchyang – Mohare Danda with Poonhill.
It has a long journey for us, and it’s really worthy…. to see spectacular view along the way to Mohare danda, Khopra ridge and Poonhill. At first, we are not sure can we can finish our trek or not because of the short time. Together with gokyo trek and expedition, we prepare our journey and route, no doubt they had a great experience and make our trekking much easier.
