Mohare Danda Trek Difficulty
Mohare Danda Trek is a good mix of easy, moderate and hard.There are lots of stairs and during the uphill it is steep.Other than the first day which 3-hours uphill only, the rest of the days have a balance of uphill and flat sections of trail. Also, the last day has some painfully long downhill stretches which is difficult especially with weak knees. One of the nice things about this trek is you won’t have to worry too much about altitude, as the highest you’ll get is 3,300 meters. At that level, you may experience some shortness of breath or a dull headache, but it is nothing compared to what you can experience on the higher elevation treks throughout Nepal.

Accommodation on the Mohare Danda Trek
During the trek, don’t expect luxury accommodation. You’ll be staying in remote rural villages where building materials must be carried in on foot.You’ll stay in tea houses for most of the trek, which are humble yet cozy.The rooms are simple — usually just 2 single beds. There might be a small table and some hooks on the wall, from which you can hang your trekking clothes to air out.You may have an opportunity to spend the night in a home stay. Group have to stay in a separate home, spread throughout the village.

Toilets-Toilets are all shared and outside the room. So yeah, if you wake up in the middle of the night, you’ll want to grab your headlamp because you’ll have to walk a ways to get there.Toilets on the trek will be rustic.And showers will be very basic.These differ from tea house to tea house. Others had Western-style toilets that you needed to fill with a bucket of water to flush.If you need to use the toilet during the trek.You go in the woods. Most of the time, you’re trekking through forests, so you’ll just need to find a secluded spot where nobody can see you.

Showers-Some tea houses have showers, others don’t. We’d highly suggest packing wipes and not being too concerned with showering on your trek, because, well, you’re not always going to have the option.

Food on the Mohare Danda Trek
Lunch and Dinner-Meals on the trek will basically consist of rice, pasta, lentils, potatoes, rice, dumplings and more rice. Most food options on the trail are already veggie. It’s actually difficult to find anything that has meat in it. And if you’re vegan, you’ll be happy to know that there are lots of options for you too. When anything on the menu says it comes with vegetables, expect a small bit of shredded carrot, cabbage, and onion — not much more than that.

Breakfast-Set breakfast basically consist of fried eggs, spiced potatoes with onions and peppers and chapati. Masala Omelet is basically just an omelet with some small pieces of vegetables and some seasoning.Pancakes-It is a bit different than what you’re probably used to. Instead of being light and fluffy, they are quite dense and have almost a rubbery texture.Tibetan Bread is doughy and fried, this is almost like an unsweetened doughnut when it’s cooked well. They’re good with peanut butter and jam or honey. Masala Milk Tea or Milk Coffee are usually the options for drinks with breakfast. You can also ask for tea or coffee without milk.
