Come join Responsible Adventures on one of the most scenic and diverse treks in the world. The complete circuit of Annapurna is an estimated 300km with different scenery daily.
Eco community lodge trek
The trek to Mohare Danda brings on a less trodden part of the Annapurna range. It is a lovely alternate Annapurna trek that is off the beaten path. Compared to the Ghorepani trek, this trail is relatively new and still unknown to a lot of other trekkers.
It is a great way to promote sustainable eco-tourism of Nepal while supporting the local community projects. The community projects are designed to play a vital role in the overall upliftment in the lifestyle of the inhabitants of this area.
This trek is also known as the Eco-Community Lodge trek. It is an excellent choice for those enthusiastic travelers who have a short amount of time. It is a perfect combination of experiencing unlimited cultural and natural beauties of Nepal. You get to admire the close views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges from Mohare Danda, which is at an elevation of 3,300m.
An added advantage of this trek is that you can enjoy the sunrise and sunset views over the glittering mountains right with the comfort of the dining room of the lodge.
