Difficulty Rating of Mohare Danda Trekking

Any avid walker who is able to hike approximately 5-6 hours a day carrying a lightweight backpack will be fit enough to do this trek. We recommend you bring walking poles, as you will find them helpful especially in the long descents when your legs may feel shaky, and the stone steps are uneven. The altitude is only 3200m, so there is no altitude related risk.


Safe Drinking Water on Mohare Danda Trek

We suggest that you drink boiled water or bring chlorine tablets to purify the normal water available in the guest houses along the way. There is a small fee charged for the boiled water. Several guesthouses have Euro-guard filters. Although mineral water is available in most places, there is no provision to dispose of the plastic bottles, so we encourage the guests to do what they can to protect the environment.


Re-charging Batteries of Electronic Items on the Trekking


You can recharge your digital camera, iPod, batteries etc. with electricity or solar power sources. You may need to buy an adaptor in Kathmandu before the trip since the plugs in Nepal might be different. The lodges charge a small fee per hour for recharging facilities.
Nepal uses 220-240 volts to power your appliances. The sockets fit both round and flat plugs.


Extra Advice for Mohare Danda Trek


You will see many sweet village children, and you may want to give them something. Remember, many trekkers have felt the same. It is better not to distribute balloons, candy, money or even pens to village children as it encourages them to beg. Many children now ask for Mithai (candy) Paisa (Money) and Boom boom (balloon).
During the trekking, keep your valuable goods safe. Lock your door when you leave your guesthouse room. You are also advised not to leave your laundry hanging outside at night.


Garbage Disposal
Don’t throw anything into the fire in any house, Buddhist or Hindu. In most cultures the household gods live in Kitchen.


Spending Money per Day

Although it depends on your spending habits, you should allocate US$ 7 - 10 per meal in Kathamndu. On the trek, US$9 - 12 a day should be enough to buy chocolates, Coca Cola and a beer.


Travel Insurance for Mohare Danda Trek


It is strongly recommended to be sufficiently protected when you go into remote areas. You need specialized travel insurance that covers emergency evacuation, injury, lost baggage, liability and medical treatment. Make sure the insurance covers all the activities that you will be undertaking during your stay in Nepal. Annapurna Foothills Treks and Expedition Pvt. Ltd. can organize the appropriate medical response based on your policy.


Washing and Toilet facilities for Mohare Danda Trek:


Most lodges offer hot showers, though sometimes a hot shower means a bucket of hot water. You can ask your trekking guide about the availability. For ecological reasons please try and limit your use of hot water unless the water is solar-heated. Please note that at higher altitude and in colder seasons there is very little chance to have enough hot water for all the trekkers. If the water is frozen then ask your guide to get warm bowl of water. Every lodge will have some kind of hand washing facility but it is good idea to carry a bar of soap with you.


Toilets are usually Asian squat style and vary in how clean they are. Normally toilets are outside the lodge but now some lodges have attached or indoor toilets. The rubbish bin in the toilet is kept for your used toilet paper.


Tea Houses
On the popular trekking routes villagers have built tea house lodges with plenty of character and good food. The simple rooms usually have two narrow beds. When you stay in the tea houses you will have close contact with the Nepalese people and are directly contributing to the local economy.
