Mohare Danda Khopra trek of Annapurna Region is 15 days long trek loved by many trekkers. Fit for seasoned trekkers, this trail is lush with pine forests, colorful rhododendrons amidst bamboo thickets and majestic oak trees. This trek is truly a lifetime experience, not only in terms of natural beauty but also culturally.
A lot of local, tribal areas are located along the way, thus providing the opportunity to mingle with their unique lifestyles and traditions. In fact, not just culture but religion is also central to this trek. It passes through Khair tal or what is commonly called Khayer lake, the waters of which are deemed to be sacred. However, due to its considerable height at 3600 meters above sea level, it is rather challenging to reach. Those who are not interested in visiting the lake can leave it out as it is not situated on the exact trek route.
This trek is commonly hailed by the locals as Annapurna Dhaulagiri Community Lodge trek with its first major destination being Mohare Danda at 3300 meters followed by the Kopra or more popularly Khopra ridge. One of the more recent trails, in this area, can be the perfect escapade from the chaos of regular trek routes. Flanked by the snowy peaks of the mesmerizing Himalaya on either side, this route is witness to mind-boggling views of some of the most beautiful mountains like Mount Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, Machhapuchchhre and of course the Nilgiris.
