5 Days Mohare Danda Eco Trek Nepal

5 days short The Mohare Danda Trek is an excellent alternative trek into the Annapurna foothills. Eco-friendly Communities Homestay Trek is an underrated trekking route among Mardi Himal and Ghorepani. The Mardi Himal trek becomes one of the most popular trekking routes in Annapurna in a short time. The locals established homestays and community tea houses in order to promote sustainable tourism. Many people follow the popular trekking route on Poon Hill to reach Mohare Danda, but the trails are more exciting from Beni.

Mahabir Pun, who invented and used wireless technology to develop the off-the-grid sections of the Annapurna range, established the Mohare Danda trail. Mahabir Pun gave the trek's name, "Homestay Path Eco-Communities Lodges," and regional communities manage the lodges in Nepal's Mohare Danda region.

Who is Mahabir Pun from?

Some people consider the Magsaysay Award to be the Asian equivalent of the Nobel Prize because Pun received it in 2007 for "his creative use of wireless computer technology in Nepal, bringing progress to remote mountain areas by connecting his village to the global community." Pun is the sole recipient of the Magsaysay Award for Community Leadership out of the five Nepalis to win the honor.

There aren't many community lodges, and all of the advantages of the trek go straight to the neighborhood. to aid in the economic development of the isolated communities of Danda Kharka, Suntala Kharka, Nagi Lespar, Bans Kharka, and Falame Danda. The Short Mohare Trek Itinerary features a pristine trekking route, breathtaking Himalayan views, picturesque village agricultural fields, and the way of life in the region. Due to the vibrant rhododendron blooms, I personally prefer to walk the Nagi to Mohare danda route in the spring. Many operators of trek agencies are unaware of this lovely trail; hence, they have few recommendations. Rugged Trails Nepal offers quick Mohare Danda community trekking, but upon request, we can also arrange trips from Kathmandu.

The Mohare Danda hike routes are pristine and environmentally friendly. Eco-environmental harmony and the local community keep the trails clean every day and forbid littering with plastic and paper.

Best time to do the Mohare Danda trek

The months of March, April, May, September, October, and November are the ideal times to complete this walk.

The greatest time of year to take photos of vibrant rhododendron flowers is from March to April if you're a photographer.

Please be aware that the Mohare Danda walk is not recommended during the monsoon season due to the high concentration of hungry leeches in the area and the increased risk of leech bites at this time. Due to leeches, we personally do not advise trekking from mid-June to mid-September.
