For the previous episode, the team had reached the religious site of Aama Yangri in Sindhupalchok.
From there, we embarked on a journey to Mohare Danda. On the first day, we were supposed to reach Pokhara by following the Prithvi Highway. We left behind Sikre, Kholaa, Malekhu, Muglin, and Aambukhaireni. The new destination always adds a new level of excitement to a person. Even though the road was bumpy at times, the team's excitement for the journey was different.
When we arrived at Sikre Khola, leaving behind the familiar places like Durbar Marg, Sundhara, and Kalanki, the weather had become cloudy. It was the end of the year 2079 and the dusty road on the construction-less Prithvi Highway was pushing the journey forward. The road was covered in dust. All travelers, heading out of Kathmandu and towards Kathmandu, were covered in brown dust. Even the colors of houses along the road had changed to a brownish hue. Looking at them, it seemed like everyone had painted their houses in the same color.
As it was the month of Chaitra the wind was blowing and the leaves of the trees in the area were greener than ever before. The road from Sikrekhola to Ambukhaireni in Dhadhing district was quite easy. The construction of the road showed the possibility of convenience in the future. The road was wider and of better quality than before making it easier for people to travel on this highway. Even though some people had to face difficulties for some time It was believed that the country would develop, bringing happiness to everyone.
There were Trucks with funny quotes on Ukraine and Russia written on them. Day and night, the noise of vehicles is constantly present on the Prithvi Highway, which is the most important and busy highway in Nepal. It took us more than four hours to reach Muglin.
Looking down from the Mugling bridge, we can see the wide river flowing below. After spending some time on the bridge, we went to Benitar to have some food. Its Lunch time. DIDI, what did you bring ? Fish and Meat. Its local fish. Wow How can we find out if the fish is local or not ? If you know, you will know .
How is it just by looking? Fantastic ! Are you taking selfie ? Ok ok selfie I am giving pose. After moving forward from Benitar, we met Amir in Ambukhairani. There, we refueled at a nearby petrol pump and continued our journey towards Pokhara. We had to face a terrible dusty road along with the construction work going on during the daytime which caused a lot of traffic jams.
Due to the frequent stops at various points, the vehicles formed long lines. The rough and dusty road made the journey very difficult, and the dust made our clothes and shoes dirty. At times, we felt like we were walking through a construction site rather than traveling on a road and we wanted to reach Pokhara soon. The road to Pokhara was also very difficult to travel.
The bulldozers were working in the area, and at times the road was completely blocked. One dusty highway was being used by all the traffic, and we too had to travel on it. However, the inconvenience was not only ours, but it was also shared by all who had to travel on the Prithvi Highway. After going a little further, a scene of oxen plowing was seen on the side of the road. Due to the invention of machines like tractors, the scene of plowing bulls is rarely seen nowadays. That's why we stayed there for a while.
For a while, we got lost on the side of the road and watched the plowing of the oxen. The reality that we will have to reach Pokhara after a while hesitated and we started the journey again. It was already evening when we saw the plowing of the oxen. Pokhara, which is known as the Cherrapunji of Nepal for being the place where the most rain falls, introduced itself without even reaching Pokhara.
We were in the route to Pokhara and right now we are here at Gudadhi. We stopped by to have some tea and its raining heavily. Hopefully we will reach pokhara today, Its 40kms to Pokhara from here and it will take about 1-2 hrs . We will start the journey when the rain stops but right now we will have some food. The water that hit our desire to rest after reaching Pokhara was hit by the rain early on. Around 8 o'clock, the rainfall slowly stopped.
We rushed towards Pokhara with great difficulty. The muddy road was made even more difficult to travel because of the muddy way. The darkness of the night concealed Pokhara.
Usually, traveling at night is more difficult than during the day. The glaring headlights of vehicles and the unknown ditches on the road made the journey quite challenging. As the destination approached, we were feeling good. By the time we reached Raniban Retreat, the city of Pokhara was about to sleep. Hello everyone, we reached Raniban retrerat. We can see the view of magical Pokhara down there.
And up there we can see the view of Pumdikot as well as the Shiva's statue. We reached here late. Approx, we rode for about 9-10 hrs. We took rest for about 2 hrs while it was raining. If you wanna experience magical view of Pokhara then I would recomend Raniban retreat for you. If we are lucky then tommorow we can experience the movements of the clouds. It would be epic.
A Ryhme for Pokhara city . We are so dusty. Now we will sleep and in the morning we can see the epic view of the mountain ranges.
We looked at the city of Pokhara, which was sleeping for a while after resting our tired bodies at Raniban Retreat. The team went to the room to sleep as they had to leave for the journey to Nangi early the next morning. No matter how much one describes Pokhara city, words fall short. The beautiful lakes like Fewa and Begnas, where one can smile by capturing their reflection in the morning, the hospitality of the people with sweet smiles and words, the stunning sunrise and cloud cover seen from the hills. These are the sweet mixtures that introduce Pokhara. But, we can’t say this is the particular thing that defines Pokhara because there are many.
This city has such an attraction that it mesmerizes everyone who comes here. Overlooking the ability to express beauty in words, Pokhara manages to turn every day into a festival, putting in a little effort to make people happy. Pokhara is such a city. We are here at Raniban Retreat.
We can see the clear view of mountains. you can see them behind me. One of the best ever destinations, best view point in Pokhara would be Raniban retreat. Hopefully, today's journey would be till the place called NAGI.
We got good roads till Beni and we dont know the road conditions from beni till NAGI. Its Offroad. Today we'll stay at NAGI Community Lodge and we will start treking from tommorow. It's different experience.
You can come here and enjoy this experience. Now, we'll have our Breakfast. After staying at the Raniban Retreat on the hillside and enjoying a beautiful view of Pokhara city and the stunning Fewa Lake during breakfast, we were ready to embark on our journey to Nangi. However, we couldn't resist taking in the beautiful scenery that we had seen from the Raniban Retreat and felt compelled to continue our journey.
At times, we watched the sun's rays playing with the clouds in the sky over Pokhara. We felt a certain sense of contentment within us. We had our breakfast just now. Now we are heading towards Nagi today. Lets see if weather is good we will continue our journey to Nagi. Firstly we have to travel to beni And we will have to experience offroad from beni.
That's it so lets goo... We removed the dust from the Saddle Bags and started our journey to Beni. The road was not smooth and easy, but we were excited to reach our destination. Even the thought of arriving at our destination filled us with enthusiasm, and we realized how much excitement a small imagination about a destination can bring to a traveler. The journey started and we rode on the Pokhara-Baglung highway.
This is a 1095-kilometer long central hill highway of Nepal, which starts from zero kilometer in Pokhara and ends in Baglung. This 72-kilometer highway connects Pokhara with various other tourist destinations. Traveling on this beautiful highway is itself an amazing experience. As time passed, we kept stopping and admiring the scenery, and then moving forward. Since the road up to Beni was easy, we didn't have to face any major problems. Some road construction work was going on at some places.
Just now we reached the place called ambot. And little raining is going on here. We are taking some rest on the way to beni. So that raining will also be stop and we will take our lunch here now. Hope rain will be stop ! When Ambot was reached, the weather had changed suddenly.
The rain stopped mildly while we were having Lunch. However, the journey to Beni resumed smoothly despite the rain. After reaching Kusma, petrol was filled in the scooter. It is necessary to travel about 42 kilometers from Kusma to reach Beni.
We never knew how long it would take to reach Nangi. The roads were muddy. The wheels of the scooter were all muddy as we proceeded to reach Nangi.
We were wondering what the Mohare Danda, which has been heard about but few people have visited, would be like. But before that, We used to worry about how to reach Nangi using the difficult dirt road. If it was the rainy season, we would have suffered even more. Just now we reached place called milanchowk. From here Beni is just 3km ahead.
From the Milanchowk you should take left from the way of Lumdi khola bridge. to reach Nagi community lodge. From here it takes around 3-4hours of offroad ride. If you go straight from this road you will reach beni. But we will take from here to reach Nagi.
Don't get confuse you dont need to reach Beni. You should take left from the Milanchowk. We will eat something here and continue our journey. After crossing the suspension bridge over the Lumdi Khola, the path leads towards the narrow jungle. After traveling for almost 4 hours, one can reach Nangi. Just now we came 10min up from Milanchowk.
Here the two ways seperates the road. You can see here two roads. We were also in confusion You should take left from here to go Nagi. The roads weren’t that difficult although we were traveling off road. The magical forests on the way were attractive.
During the journey, the sweet fragrance of the forest was flowing all around. Those roads were built cutting down the whole hill. Although it seemed like we had been traveling for a long time, we were going to cross only one mountain.
He higher we climbed, the more the sun went down. The road to Nangi was very beautiful in the evening. The fields were visible on the side.
Some small villages were left behind during the travel. If we had time, we would stop for a while in each village and get a lot of information about them. Travel will sometimes make the traveler dissatisfied.
Not knowing everything about the place you have reached comes with a kind of sadness. Looking at the places left behind, it could be said that agriculture is the main source of income for the people there, but it was difficult to move forward without knowing what kind of people live there, how they live and what kind of art and culture they are full of. After a while, the uphill road started. As the road is being built, there are some steep slopes. The road was easy in some places and very difficult in some places. It was time for the sun to set.
The rough road journey continued. The children from the houses on the side of the road were welcoming us with their smiles. Although the body was sore from the continuous journey since morning, we continued to convince our minds that it was only a short time. When approaching Phalame Danda, we had to face the most difficult road. We had to suffer a lot on the scooter on that rocky road. It was a new world.
The wind was also blowing differently. We were moving forward with enthusiasm to reach Nangi, but that enthusiasm could not last for long. On that day, they could only reach Phalame Danda.
We were going towards Nagi but couldn't reach so today we will be going to place called Phalame danda homestay. We asked many local people in the way how much time will it takes to reach Nangi ! Today it is not possible to reach nagi. It will not be fun if we reached 11-12pm We have to take rest so we are sitting in Phalame danda homestay.
After stopping for a while at a shop on the way, we proceeded towards Phalame Danda. The road to Phalame Danda was even worse. It was very difficult to travel in the dark of night. When going on a journey, it is uncertain when you will reach and where you will stay.
We, who wanted to reach Nangi, had to stay at Phalame Danda. 3hours of massive off-road we are finally here at Phalame danda homestay. We couldn't reach Nagi today so hopefully tomorrow we will reach and continue our journey to Mohare danda. The Phalame Danda is located at an altitude of 3300 meters above sea level, is situated in Ward No. 5 of Jaljala Gaunpalika.
From this place, one can see the beautiful view of the Annapurna mountain range and other Himalayan peaks such as Dhaulagiri, Annapurna Gurja, and Nilgiri along with the mesmerizing sunrise. A community homestay has been established in this area under the Karbakeli Padmarga to facilitate the visit of tourists. This route has been operational since 2075 BS by bringing together some of the popular tourist destinations of Myagdi and northern mountains. This route, which is named after the community's patron deity Karbakeli Baba, connects Ghorepani, Poonhill, Fulbari, and Karbakeli Than. This is an easy trail for those who have little trekking experience or want to experience trekking for the first time.
Because it is named after the family deity, there is also a belief that walking on this path awakens spiritual feelings. Those who travel through this footpath can travel by jeep from Pokhara to Birethanti and from there climb Poonhill and reach Karbakeli Than in a 4-hour walk. It is an ideal trail to observe the biodiversity and the arts and culture of the community. Today is the 3rd day.
Yesterday was hell of a ride so slept a bit more than usual. Today's destination is NANGI. We hoped to reach NANGI yesterday but today we are gonna reach there. Trek will start from tommorow and we can see great view from over here.
When we couldn't reach Nangi yesterday, we were very upset, but the beautiful morning scene made us forget about it. After having breakfast in the morning, we rested in the shade of a tree on the bank of the river. I thought i have seen you somewhere but after sometime i realized that you are the person,who has explored many parts of Nepal and make videos. But I actually forgot your name. My name is Hemanta This is my village where I grew up and I am the eldest daughter of British captain Abir Pun.
I have seen every single of your videos and I really love your videos. My family, we together watch your videos. we dont often go out unless we have work.
I am nature lover as well as you guys are so I am your fan We just had our breakfast and its a bit late. Now we are heading towards Nangi community lodge and Nangi is the point where we start our trek. We will reach Mohare Danda from Nangi in a day. We will now pay here and head towards Nangi. As we headed towards Nangi from our homestay, we felt a kind of happiness in our hearts.
Because we were going to Nangi, the birthplace of Nepal's very own, teacher, young scientist, inventor and respected social activist Mahabir Pun. He has a master's degree in science from the University of Nebraska, USA and is trying to move the country towards the speed of development. He is currently the president of the National Innovation Center, which succeeded in expanding the Internet network through the Nepal Wireless Network Project with the goal of transmitting information to the rural areas of the country through wireless technology.
The fact that we were able to reach the birthplace of a true national servant who returned to Nepal to develop the country by leaving the facilities provided by foreign countries filled us with a unique excitement. We are in the route to Nangi and the road is extreme, same as the route to Ruby valley. Sadish, How is the road condition ? This time also the road is extreme. Too hard No double load in the scooter and we helping the scooter by pushing in extreme situations. Lets see, How much time it would take to reach Nangi. The road is extreme. The road is rougher than we thought.
Sometimes it's rocky, sometimes it's bumpy, and sometimes there are steep inclines that scooters can't climb. The roads in the hilly areas throughout the country are just like this. Either Ruby Valley or Amayangri or Mardi’s way it’s the same. Due to the steepness of the roads from the city, these roads do not turn into blacktops. Every year, water opens up these roads.
When it rains, the situation of the roads becomes pitiable. Although in some places, the roads have been made smooth by laying stones, the roads that lead to the river are still not easily accessible. While moving ahead we saw a Chhorten on the road. We felt like we were entering a place that consists of Buddhism. After crossing Chorten and moving forward for a while, we reached the familiar Nangi village in Myagdi district.
After 3hrs of ride from Phalame danda, we are here at Nangi village. From here we have to walk till Nangi community lodge. So we will go up this way.
It will take about 2-5 mins. Today we will stay here and from tommorow we will start walking to reach Mohare danda. There are no location boards from Phalame danda till here so people may get confused to reach here. I think local people and government should put the location board so that this treking spot may be easily accessible . Now we will go up and have some food.
Today we will rest and from tommorow we start walking. These scooters are gonna be here till we return from Mohare and now we will take our goods to the room. After 5 years we are back again and our sticker is here. Just now we reached here at Nangi community lodge and we also parked our scoopters down there.
From tommorow the way is up and up got tired and now we will have some food. Nepal 8th Wonder's team is here again after many years. We had our stickes here 5 years back. We just had our lunch at Nangi Tommorow our destination will be Mohare danda. We are feeling proud after reaching this place because Mr. Mahabir Pun had given several contributions to make this place digitally grow. We have free internet facilities in this place.
we are able to enjoy Worldlink's free internet up here in such a place. we get wifi signals from Pokhara in Mohare danda so there are towers up there and signals from Mohare danda is distributed all over this palce. We are able to enjoy worldlinks internet in such a remote place.
We are happy acknowledge worldlinks internet facilities and we hope that they could provide their facilities in other remote places of Nepal. We will rest today and we start our trek tommorow. Enjoy Nangi village with us. Nangi village, which falls under Annapurna Dhaulagiri Community Ecological Trail, is well-known in terms of tourism.
It is the development of information and technology of this place that will bring its introduction to a higher level. Many people recognize this place as the place where Roman Magsaysay awardee Mahabir Pun's goal of spreading information to the rural areas of the country through wireless technology was successful through the wireless project. The credit for the development of digital literacy and technology in Nangi village goes to Mahabir Pun. Access to technology, living conditions of the Magar caste, their art culture and the beautiful view of the Annapurna snow range are the main attractions of Nangi village. Nangi, the well-known starting point of Mohare Danda Trekking, is at a height of about 2300 meters above sea level.
This place is equally beautiful in terms of nature. Around a thousand tourists come to this place every month to experience the beautiful scenery of the Annapurna snow range and the clean environment of the mountains. Both domestic and foreign tourists are eager to stay at the homestay and eat the organic food made there. Hello, Namaste You good ? Yep absolutely Okay brother.
When we woke up and looked outside the room, the yellow rays of the sun had poured over the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna snow ranges. Magar brothers and sisters living in about four hundred houses got up early and took care of their work. The operation and management of the homestays and lodges here are done in a communal manner. Some of the money from that homestay will be used in four areas of the village.
Using the income mainly for education, health, science and technology and development, the people of this village are engaged in developing their own place. Today we are here at Nangi village. Hopefully we get see the open view of the mountains.
For the past 5 days the mountains were all covered with clouds. But we are the lucky ones. Hopefully we get to see the mountains. we will head towards Mohare Danda after capturing some B-rolls of this place and also after having our breakfast. It will take about 5 hrs to reach Mohare danda you feel like you are in a different landscape. This would be a awesome place to escape from kathmandu valley.
you can explore this place if you are free. Now we will have our breakfast and get ready to go up hill. There is a basketball and volleyball court next to Nangi Community Lodge.
After spending some time there, we returned to the lodge. By the time we reached the community lodge, breakfast was ready. It was decided to start the walk after eating breakfast. We had to walk all day to reach Mohare Danda.
We don't know why but on the first day of the trek, the enthusiasm of hikers doubles. The same thing happened to us. Many many thanks to you guys for coming all this we explore our place. Ofcourse, you guys have made many videos and today your destination is Mohare danda.
Hopefully your video may catch attention of the world more than the majestic beauty of Mohare danda itself. Best of luck for your journey and also your work. Thank you so much brother. By the time we left for Mohare after having breakfast, it was already late. Carrying the heavy goods to the porter, the team moved towards Mohare Danda.
Toya Dai of Community Lodge arranged our stay well along with finding a porter. He has been very brave to think that if he can work as a community, not only himself but the whole village will progress. The village of Nangi did not leave the company until some time after starting the journey. The locals were enjoying their day. This is one of the best aspects of traveling in villages.
There is never a shortage of friends to share a laugh with. Carrying his Doko, our porter's dai walked ahead. The team was following him. There were beautiful snow chains in the landscape and cold wind was blowing here and there touching the gut. Even though it was the month of Chaitra, it was not that hot.
The cool breeze that touched the mountains made the body cool. All along the road, the Rhododendrons were blooming. We proceeded through the forest path. This trail, sometimes steep or flat, is easy for new hikers.
According to Toya Dai of Nangi village, 700 to 800 domestic and foreign tourists come here every month during the season to see Mohare Danda. In which the number of foreign tourists is more than Nepalese. On a sunny day, walking uphill enjoying the fresh air of the forest, there was a special peace in our hearts. We were gossiping and taking videos. The drone got entangled in a tree branch and suffered an accident. Fortunately, there will be no problems with the drone.
Roundabouts were built to make it easier for travelers. As we did not feel tired, we walked somewhere without resting. We reached the place called Dobato Kharka just now.
It takes approx 1hr to reach this place from Nangi. From here it takes about 1-2 hrs to reach Hamphal pass and it take 4-5 hrs to reach Mohare danda. We will have some food when we reach Hamphal pass. Although we have pan cake with us.
This place is called Dobato Kharka and this is the way to Mohare. We were very happy that the road was shortening as we crossed Dobato Kharka. The land used for keeping cattle and grazing cattle is called Kharka. Every year for a few months, the farmers living around this area have been coming to graze their cows by keeping a temporary shed in Dobato Kharka.
It was very easy for us as the porter carried the heavy goods. However, a few moments ago, the porter brother who was walking along had disappeared because of the fast pace. Slowly we continued to climb. While walking through the forest, hikers can experience many things.
The chirping of the birds and the wind flowing through the leaves, the sound of one's own steps trampling the leaves also sounds musical. Going from Bhuwane Danda towards Hampal Bas, one has to travel through dense forest. The Rhododendron plants were seen at times. Looking at it, we moved forward.
We reached Bhuvane dada just now. You can see the location board up here. It will take about 45 mins to reach Hamphal pass from here. Its our guess. We dont know the actual time to reach up there. I came here 5 yrs back but my memory about this place is faded. Our next point is Hamphal where we will have our lunch(pancake).
Lets get back to our journey. The people living in the village below have been coming to Bhuwane Danda for grass and firewood. Not only here, but in most villages, the custom of going to the forest to bring firewood is still there. Due to the problems of transportation in rural areas, people are still living by burning firewood. For the people living in the city, the forest only provides oxygen, but it plays a very important role in the lives of the villagers.
The firewood for cooking or grass for cattle, the villagers depend on the forest for all these things. In the time of spring we can see these colorful Rhododendrons. We got to see different species of Rhododendron. We are in the way up to Hamphal pass and we can see big rocky mountain up there. We lost our way in this place. There are no location boards here. We are not able to find our way so we are trying call in Nangi .
We will take a break and have some WAI WAI noodles and after that we will head up there. We will have our lunch up there in Hamphal. But we are totally lost. Lets see what will happen. After eating Noodles, we guessed the right way and we started our journey towards Mohare. As it was the month of Chaitra, the ground grass was all Yellowish.
Those who travel to this area around Baisakh and Jestha months will enjoy seeing the greenery. We lost our way. Where did we reach? It is a very difficult climb on the ridge because we were lost. The dry slippery grass made walking more difficult.
We lost our way. Not even a single location board is seen. Because of that we lost our way. We climbed up this hill and reached here. I think we need more location boards, so that travellers dont lose their way . Its risky After a difficult uphill journey for some time, we arrived at Hampal Danda, located in the Parbat District. A resting tower was also seen there.
After seeing that, We thought that we finally found the right way. By the time we reached the hill, the weather had turned cloudy. The mountains that were visible a while ago were covered with haze. The hills that were visible from the place where we were standing were also starting to look dim.
We lost our way and climbed up the risky hill to reach here. The right way was in this side. Just now, we reached Hamphal Danda. We can see an amazing view from this place just if the weather was good.
We will go up ahead and search for some shade to have our lunch. Its about to rain. Lets see, we have our raincoats. Okay lets get back in the route. As the weather worsened, it became dark in the afternoon.
We climbed for a while through the Hampal hill which is 3000 meters above the sea level. The weather worsened as we climbed higher. A thunderous sound was heard from the sky. We were looking for a place to have lunch. We were in the route to Mohare after crossing Hamphal and it suddenly started snowing Such a magical moment happend to us.
Snow is different than rain The sky is thundering. Lets see, what will happen. Nothing is sure. We dont know where we will have our lunch. Porter brother is waiting for us up ahead.
We can experience different landscape and see something new if it continues to snow. Its the first time experiencing snow for Abhi . This is my 1st time experiencing snowfall. Its making me excited. Lets see, what will happen up in the route.
It is a matter of luck to experience snow in the month of Chaitra. Mohare Danda gave that experience. But there was also fear that it would be difficult to walk if there was a lot of snow.
Without getting lost, we headed towards Mohare Danda through the forest path. We are having our lunch at 3 pm. We were about to have lunch in Hamphal but our porter brother brought us up here .
The location is good. We are below this big rocky hill. Now we will have our Pancakes. We sat for a while under the cover of a huge stone to have lunch.
The pancakes cooked in the morning were already cold. Even though it was cold, it helped to satisfy the hunger. We had our lunch just now and it was snowing too.
It stopped just now. We rested here about 45 mins and we are getting back in our way. The time is 4 pm and from here it we take us about 2 hrs to reach Mohare. After a while while eating, the snow subsided.
Taking that opportunity, we continued the journey. After lunch, an even steeper road began. We were traveling with four friends. When walking and listening to each other's travel experiences, it was not noticed that time had passed easily. On that day, when climbing uphill, it was snowing. Some told their first experience of playing in the snow, while others told the pain they had to face because of the snow.
Mohare Danda had created an atmosphere to exchange memories on that day. The Kharkas that appeared from time to time were reminiscent of Khaptad and Dhorpatan. Although some things were the same, the beauty of Mohare Trekking was different. There was something special that made this path different from others. By the time we reached Dhima Danda, which is at a height of 3068 meters, the sky was very dark.
The higher it went, the more snowy it got. While we were happy that it was snowing, we also complained about not being able to see the mountains. We kept on walking with a faint hope that the mountains would be seen tomorrow morning. We just reached Dhima Danda and its 3068m above sea level. Mohare is 3300m above sea level and still 200m to reach Mohare . Approx, 1.5-2 hrs to reach our destination.
It will take 10-15 mins to reach here from the place we had our lunch. The route is a bit straight from here and it takes 1.5 - 2 hrs to reach our destination. Travel not only teaches people to be one with beauty but also the meaning of compromise. Even if it is not what you think and say, it will teach the traveler to follow his heart. Not being able to eat when told. Don't be able to sit. Don't get the bed as you say.
A traveler learns to deal with all these things during the journey. If you look carefully, you will find a philosophy of life hidden in the experiences of travel. Along with teaching them to make compromises, the journeys that also teach them not to give up have been giving people a different perspective on life. It didn't stop snowing. There was no option to continue the journey by wearing the raincoat.
After resting for a while, we were afraid that it would be night, so we decided to walk slowly. WOW WOW This is my 1st experience with snowfall and I am finding it exciting. I am enjoying this vibes. We have been walking together since morning. The rest was only at the time of lunch, but still Mohare seemed far away.
To witness the Mountains was like a dream at those moments. The team was making their way to meet Mohare Danda, finding a way through the mountains covered with snow. We had raincoats to go with us. Porter Dai won't have that either.
Sometimes he was walking under the cover of hills. While walking in the forest, the snow did hit us. Walking in the open was somewhat difficult. We are here at Rapse Kharka.
Still a hour to go to reach Mohare and its snowing more and more and more. This place is 3168 m abobe sealevel. Our destination is 3300m above sea level. Lets not waste our time. Lets go. By the time I reached Rapse Kharka, which is 3168 meters above sea level, the whole land was white. It was as if the night had fallen earlier than the time due to the fog.
We had to walk for another hour and a half. Fearing nightfall, we started to walk up. Somewhere along the way, there were boards with Mohare Danda written on them, which encouraged us that we are on the right path and the destination is nearing. The wind was blowing hard towards the hills. During the dark, the snow-covered mountain looked like a scene from a horror movie.
Because it was evening, the cold started to grow. We, who were happy with the snowfall a little while ago, had already started thinking about when we would be able to reach the hotel and stay near the fireplace. We reached Mohare before it was night.
We just reached here. The route was hard. Not the way but the weather condition. We had to go through snowfall as well as the windy condition but also we survived.
We survived and reached here. I am feeling cold and you can see this place all covered with snow. This was totally unexpected. This place would look totally awesome tommorow morning.
Now we will go inside and stay warm. Lets go. We reached Mohare and placed our goods in the room Its still snowing. This place will be filled with snow in the morning. Hopefully, may the clouds go and we get to see the clear view of the mountains I am back here after 5 yrs Back in that time we used to have Pokmaya sister here in this place and the vibe was totally different. This time beacuse of the snowfall we get to experience something different. We were welcomed with milk tea by our brothers here. Its a totally different vibe. Its snowing outside and I am using internet right now.
Here in Mohare, worldlinks internet is used and the signals are transmitted from Pokhara station. and the signals are distributed to Nangi village from here. We are able to enjoy good internet facilities up here in this place situated in 3300m above from sea level.
We are able to get connected to the world and share stories that we captured in the way. We are enjoying milk tea with the internet and also the temperature here in the room is warm. After this we gonna enjoy warm warm noodles. We traveled from Kathmandu, traveling through Kaski, Baglung, Parvat for 4 days and arrived at Mohare Danda in Myagdi.
After reaching the community lodge at Mohare Danda and having hot tea,the body felt a little warm. The body, tired from the whole day's walk, was asking for food. We were so hungry and wanted to eat the Noodles instantly, but because of the Cold weather conditions, cooking and eating it later will help defend against the cold. How is the taste? Delicious. This Pyroo noodles is best for the cold conditions of Mohare. Today we were planning to capture the sunset up from here but it started snowing.
Outside its snowing and we are enjoying warm noodles. After having noodles we will have our dinner and rest . So hopefully tommorow we get to experience the clear view of the mountains. The weather had defeated our plan to reach Mohare and capture the beautiful sunset. Hoping that the weather will clear up tomorrow morning, after dinner we went to our rooms to rest the tired bodies in bed.
Mohare Danda, which had been smudged the previous day, changed its appearance with the first rays of the sun. With the light scattered on the Annapurna Dhaulagiri and Machhapuchhre ranges, dozens more mountains like Sisne, Gurja, Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchhe, Manaslu and Annapurna were seen. The beautiful view of the sunrise was mind-blowing.
From Mohare Danda, along with Pokhara, along with the city, Myagdi, Parbat, Baglung, Kaski, Palpa and other high mountain peaks of the district were also seen. Even the snow-covered Mohare Danda looked golden with the rays of the sun. Thousands of tourists come every year to stand on Mohare Danda in Myagdi district at a height of 3313 meters above sea level to see the beautiful view of the mountains in front of their eyes. Among them, the number of foreign tourists is much more than Nepalese. Mohare Danda is one of the best destinations for tourists who come to Nepal and want to do a short trek.
Since it is possible to reach and return from Kathmandu during the week, this footpath has recently become successful in the eyes of Nepalese youth. We are here in Mohare Danda. Yesterday we reached here. Yesterday it way snowing heavly but thankfully it was not that heavy.
The view is clear in the morning and the weather is also clear. We are headed towards the sunrise spot. We can come here from Kathmandu for 5 6 days . Most of the people visit Poonhill, Ghandruk in ACAP area. It takes 2-3 hrs to reach Ghorepani from here. I think Mohare Danda is the best place for 360 view of the mountains than the other places.
Now, we will enjoy and explore this place. It's such a wonderful experience. It's white all around here. Mohare Danda, which falls within the Annapurna Dhaulagiri Community Ecological Trail, has become a new destination for trekkers looking to escape the crowds of Poon Hill and find some isolation. This place, which provides an opportunity to closely observe the art, culture and hospitality of the Magar caste, as well as a panoramic view of the mountains, has managed to attract a lot of tourists in recent times. Hikers of all ages want to visit this area because of the access to the internet and the trails that can be completed in a short time. We can experience the 360 view of the Annapurna range The view is so epic.
This is the best place to experience the 360 vie of the Annapurna range. Wonderful view of Dhaulagiri to Machhapuchhre . So come to Mohare Danda and enjoy. Travelers who come to Mohare Danda, which connects Myagdi's Nangi, Ghorepani, Kaski's Ulleri and Parbat's Lakefart, can reach Tiplyang via Dandakharka and Tilkot and from there catch the bus to Pokhara. If we look at the development of technology, under the leadership of Mahabir Pun, arrangements have been made to provide wireless and fibernet internet facilities to the village by placing a tower on Mohare Danda in mutual partnership between Nepal Innovation Center and Worldlink.
In addition to that, by bringing in an American camera and placing it on Mohare Danda and giving live weather updates to Pokhara Civil Aviation, Mohre Danda has been established as a technology-friendly village. A lodge with facilities is being operated targeting the tourists who come to visit Mohare Danda, and with the money raised from it supports other development programs including running a community school. Not only tourists but also people who run community homestays should visit this place once.
Mohare Danda, which is a model place in the field of technology development and community homestay, has become beautiful and organized from all aspects. We face electricity problems in this palce. You guys can see down there we have solar pannels instlled and it gets covered with snow after snowfall. Only if we remove the snow, the solar pannels will work and we get electricity. The most important problem we face is water .
We store water like this. We collect water from the snow like this. These stored water is used for washing dishes and also our hands and feet. And in this drum we store water brought from the height of 2500m using pump that runs from solar. And this is the pipe from where the water comes from 2500m height and its not possible in the present situation. We took morning shots and its time for break fast.
I totally forgot to install this sticker here. If you guys come here and see this stiker and if you share it in your story we will share it back. We are having our breakfast. We want end our Mohare Danda's video here. It was totally a different experience here. The snowfall we faced was unexpected but also it was facinating. If you want to see the 360 view of the Annapurna range then Mohare Danda is the best option.
Hope that you guys will support us and see you in the next episode. Short in terms of days, but very memorable in terms of memories, Mohare Danda Trek. In 5 days, we crossed the dirty road of Prithvi highway and completed the journey through Phalame Danda and Nangi village to Mohare Danda.
This journey gave us the opportunity to visit Kaski, Baglung and Myagdi at the same time. We spent two nights in Nangi and Mohare Danda, getting beaten in the snow and observing the Magar community closely, becoming a model village in the field of technological development and community homestay operation. The view of the beautiful mountains and the clean air are in their place. Apart from that, we have returned with many memories that made the trip to Mohare Danda more pleasant with the help and intimacy of the Magar brothers.
We would like to thank all those people who supported us throughout the journey from the bottom of our hearts. Also, love and respect to a good national servant like Mahabir Pun. We are proud that the country has got a true patriot. Finally, like the previous trip, we say thank you to all the sponsors who helped make this trip possible.
We hope that this video of ours will increase the number of both internal and external tourists reaching Mohare Danda in the coming days. We will come again with another episode. Hope you’ll wait.
