Mohare Danda Trek Review

Mohare Danda trek with Nepali Friends

November 22, 2021

Finally, we accomplished our trekking expedition to Nagi Narchyang – Mohare Danda, including Poonhill, and it was truly worth every step. The journey was long, but the breathtaking views along the way to Mohare Danda, Khopra ridge, and Poonhill made it all worthwhile.

Initially, we had doubts about completing the trek due to the limited time available. However, with the invaluable assistance of Gokyo Trek and Expedition, we meticulously prepared our journey and route.

Their wealth of experience made the trek significantly easier and more enjoyable. Thanks to their expertise, we were able to relish the stunning beauty of the Himalayan landscapes without worrying about the challenges of the trek.
