Overview

Nepal has a lot to offer to the trekkers, and the Khopra Ridge Trek is one of them. If you are willing to add a beautiful experience to your trekking journey, then Khopra Ridge Trek will perfectly fit you.

Khopra Ridge lies in the heart of the Annapurna Region; the ridge lies 3640 meters above sea level. This is also one of the off-beaten-path trekking trails of the Annapurna Region. The trail is far from the crowded spots. Khopra Ridge Trek presents you with the views of Mount Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, and Nilgiri. Our route passes along the Orchids and rhododendron forests. You will get to witness the perfect sunrise view over the Himalayas from Poon Hill. From Tadapani, you will be able to see Machhapuchhre as well.

The journey begins in Kathmandu. We will then move to Pokhara; from here, we will start our trek towards Ghandruk. From Ghandruk we will head towards the dobato and then to Khorpa Danda. Get a chance to explore Khyar Lake and head towards the Tato pani from Khorpa. Finally, we will be returning to Pokhara by local bus. You will return to Kathmandu by Tourist bus. This is how the Khorpa Ridge trek ends on the eleventh day.

We will primarily be accomodating at tea houses/guesthouses during the trekking period because it is a remote area. Our trek ends at Kathmandu. During the trial, you will get to witness some rare species like Dzos (crossbreed of cow and yak), Himalayan Thar, and the national bird of Nepal – Danphe.

The trekking days are scheduled as per the convenience of the tourists; if you want to add something to this route, we can consider your recommendations. The Khorpa Ridge Trek will add glory to your trekking diary.  Nepal Mountain Adventure has been providing excellent services to customers for many years. For any inquiry you can feel free to contact us, we will be happy to offer you our services.
