Khopra Ridge Trek is undoubtedly one of Nepal’s most exciting short treks. This trek includes all components of a classic trek in Nepal. Apart from this, the tour makes cozy villages, wildlife, and extensive mountain views visible. It offers various landscapes, from forests to high alpine landscapes; however, the Khopra ridge trek lies far from the busier trails of the Annapurna region.
However, Trek to Khopra ridge provides equally outstanding views of the Himalayan ranges as Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, Fang, and Nilgiri. Khayer Lake is another attraction of this trek, which needs to be slightly rambling away from the Khopra ridge.
We start our trip from Kathmandu with a visit to the UNESCO world heritage sites. As we fly or drive to Pokhara, then go to Naya Pul, where the trek begins. We follow the paths of the Annapurna balcony until Tadapani from Naya Pul. Then we leave the main trail and walk on a far way for the next couple of days. We will stay in the community tea houses during these periods.
The two-week trip is appropriate for those who would like to relish Mount Annapurna’s beauty while enjoying the soothing of more remote paths. The Khopra Danda trek has become famous as an alternative trekking route in the Annapurna Region. It is an easy and short trek but allows you to explore the culture and nature and get close to the giant Himalayas.

The Khopra Ridge trek (also known as the Khopra Danda trek) is an excellent alternative to the most popular (and crowded) Ghorepani Poon Hill trek, taking you higher still to another superb viewpoint of the Annapurnas. The route follows the local trail, which takes you to Ghorepani before climbing Khopra Ridge.
Trek to Khopra Ridge is an excellent choice if you’re looking for the perfect week-long trek, but a little off the beaten track, with great views. Contact us to get started organizing your expedition.
