After the old Pokhara-Jomsom-Muktinath trail was connected to the highway network, many predicted trekking along the world’s deepest gorge between Dhaulagiri and Annapurna

 

After the old Pokhara-Jomsom-Muktinath trail was connected to the highway network, many predicted trekking along the world’s deepest gorge between Dhaulagiri and Annapurna would be obsolete. Actually, it has opened up new areas made side valleys more accessible and brought the benefits of home stay tourism to the dwellers of remote villages.
Mohare Danda is the ‘high road’ alternative to the Ghorepani Trek, and follows an alternative trail up from Pokhara itself up to Banskharka, along to Nangi and Mohare. The treks are along scented forests of oak, rhododendron and spruce and sometimes along exposed ridges that offer exhilarating views of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South dead ahead and the forked summit of Machhapuchhre to the east. You have a long circuit lasting a week to Dhankhar, or you can do a shorter five-day version fast-tracking through Tikot.
Mohare Danda Trek is an initiative of Magsaysay winner Mahabir Pun who has developed a unique concept of eco-trekking that benefits the environment and development of the area.
