The Khopra Danda Trek is a newly opened route in the Annapurna region, also known as the Khopra Ridge Trek. Khopra Danda Trek, or Khayer Lake Trek, is a top-rated off-the-beaten-path trek in the center of the Annapurna region. Khopra offers views of the Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Nilgiri (7,061m), Bhara Shikhar (7,647m), Annapurna I (8091m), Machhapuchhre (6,997m), and many other peaks which are not written here. Moreover, this is a lovely trek trail for trekkers who have a very short period to trek, around ten days, but want to trek in a quiet place; this one is the best option. Khayer Lake, 4500 meters (14763 feet), is the leading destination considered sacred per the Hindu religion. Located just by leap on the Annapurna range, a Khayer lake trek is challenging, especially in the last part. The ever-smiling faces of local people, their cultures, and the thick rhododendron forest always keep you very happy during this trek. March and April are the primary time for rhododendron flowers.

The Kopra Ridge excursion begins from the beautiful city of Pokhara after a 6-hour scenic drive from Kathmandu; the next day, after 1 hour, another scenic drive from Pokhara to Nayapul. The official trek starts from here; the trail follows the beautiful Kaligandaki river valley onwards through the Magar and Gurung villages towards the hills.

After the Tadapani trail, it leads us along the remote area for a few days while spending time with the local community lodges.

This trip is suitable for visitors who wish to enjoy the delightful, unique culture, a fantastic view of Annapurna, many other mountains, and breathtaking landscapes.

You also get a unique experience of diverse cultures and traditional villages with warm and friendly Gurung and Magar people.

Join Kopra RidgeTrek now; you will surely enjoy the incredible scenery with the equally spectacular views of Himalayan mountain ranges.

We’ll get you checked into your hotel, where you can spend the remainder of the day enjoying some hard-earned rest. You’ll also have the chance to meet your trekking guide and learn more about the adventure ahead. Later this evening, you’ll enjoy a delicious dinner before exploring the charming ambiance of Thamel, the city’s most popular shopping district.

    Our journey by tourist bus takes us to Pokhara. This ride should take approximately seven hours, but you don’t have to worry about getting bored. As we leave the capital city behind, you’ll enjoy watching the rural landscapes of Nepal pass by your window: lush jungles, terraced fields of barley, glacial rivers sparkling in the sun, and icy mountains towering over it all. When we arrive in Pokhara, you’ll quickly understand why it’s popular with adrenaline junkies. You could easily spend a week hang gliding, bungee jumping, zip-lining, and whitewater rafting here.

We’ll take our time to ascend gently, climbing through terraced cornfields to reach the little hillside village of Ulleri.

But it’s the Himalayan mountains that are sure to draw your eye as we approach Ghorepani, best known for the beloved nearby viewpoint of Poon Hill.
