A Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a wireless ad-hoc network consisting of mobile nodes. These kinds of networks are very flexible; they do not require any existing infrastructure or central administration. The biggest challenge in this kind of networks is to find a path between the source and destination. There is different routing protocol to find shortest path. Ant Colony Optimization Routing Algorithm (ACORA) is new emerging routing algorithm. In this paper, a new routing algorithm ACORA for mobile, multi-hop ad-hoc networks discussed to improve the performance of the existing protocol of mobile ad hoc network.
