    Trip Overview

    Ranked amongst the best treks, the Khopra Ridge Trek is one of the most scenic treks in the country. It has everything you need in a classic off-the-beaten-paths trekking route. The courses take you to the most beautiful trails across the ethnic settlements, amidst the natural wildlife, lush vegetation, and steep high mountains. The region brims with natural beauty as you see some of the remarkable views of the majestic peaks like Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, and Nilgiri, and many more. The Khopra ridge (3660 meters) that meets with the sapphire waters of Khayer Lake is something you have never seen before.

    The 14 days trek takes you into the famous village of Ghandruk, which lures you with the beguiling views of Mr. Machhapuchhre and Mt. Hiuchuli. The world's deepest gorge, the Khopra Ridge trek, leaves you with the perfect opportunity to witness the magical mountains. The course further advances to the famous hill station of Poon Hill right before we ascend to the ridge. You begin the trip from the capital city of Nepal in Kathmandu, and continue flying to the gorgeous cities of the lake in Pokhara. Right from Pokhara, we drive to Nayapul and look at the city's natural landscapes ornamented with farmlands of mustards, rice, and rich vegetation. The contrasting farms under the clear blue skies set the seals on a pleasant experience.

    We trek further to Birethanti, where you will be subjected to experience the native living of people in this area. The traditions and lifestyle of a remote location are something one would not see every day; hence, a trek life is all about! The Himalayan peaks are ready to meet you on your arrival at Ghandruk. The ivory mountains are the most beautiful to witness, and their encompassment into the trekking trail makes the trekking journey brilliant. The region's landscape is like a picturesque portrait incorporating an incredible Himalayan tapestry in the background. The ridge trek is a soul-satisfying experience that is undoubtedly unforgettable. A relatively newer trek is suitable for most beginners as it is a moderate trip that can be carried on easily. We see many small rivers, and water bodies in their natural flow. Visiting Kaire Lake via the Khopra ridge presents us with the ethereal cliffs of the Fang Mountains. The stunning mountains that illuminate at dusk have a mystical feel to their individuality, indeed a region's beauty.

    We invite you to be a part of this fantastic experience to know yourself and test your true abilities. The Khopra Ridge Trek is a marvelous experience that lets you enjoy a less populated trek as you enjoy your trip to the mountains. The isolation of the trekking trail makes the Khopra Ridge Trek preferable to trekkers who want to experience a secluded journey into the remote terrains of the Annapurna region.

    If you are looking for a similar experience, we also have another Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek package similar to the Khopra Ridge Trekking. Meanwhile, you can also opt for the Annapurna Base Camp trek if you feel you need a trip to the tenth-highest mountain in the world. We prepare custom trips and itineraries that suit your needs and ensure you have the most fantastic time in the mountains!

      • Gorgeous views of the deep gorge with the best guide

        An off-the-beaten-trail, the Khopra Ridge trekking is for those who want to have an isolated trekking experience. It goes away from the regular path that leads to Ghorepani and to Poon Hill and having already undergone the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek earlier with Nepal Hiking Team; I decided that I wanted to try out the Khopra ridge Trek. In my opinion, the Khopra ridge Trek has better views of the valley and of the mountains than Poon Hill. I know that Poon Hill is a vantage point and even has a hill station and a view tower, but Khopra Ridge trekking trail goes as high as 3,660 meters and the spectacular view of the Kali Gandaki gorge from that high up is simply out of this world! Ganga had swift replies to my mail, and the involvement of my guide Prakash was immaculate as always, but I expected as much from Nepal hiking Team. It is their efficiency and their excellent services that I decided to be accompanied by them again after my venture last year. The Khopra Ridge Trekking was even more amazing than the ones I had undergone before and I will recommend it to people who want to have a trekking experience that takes a different, more secluded route than the regular Poon hill trekking.

      • A wonderful secluded trekking up in the mountains

        Suggested to me by Balaram, I underwent the Khopra ridge trek in the month of March and enjoyed every moment of my journey. It presented with an alternate journey and trekking trail which deviated from the regular trail of Ghorepani and Poon Hill. I had discussed with Balaram about my need to go on a trekking journey that would not have all that many trekkers and the Khopra ridge trek was presented. Because of its alternate and off-the-beaten-paths trail, I was tempted to undergo the trek. And the trekking journey certainly did not disappoint. The isolated village along the Khopra ridge is extremely beautiful and I loved my visit to the Kali Gandaki gorge. With Balaram’s timely help and my guide, Arun’s professional work, my trekking journey along this beautiful terrain was a tremendous success and a comfortable journey. The small lodge that was arranged for me along the trail was comfortable. Albeit lacking hot water or much of grandeur services, the stay was pleasant and added to the journey rather than take away from it. But of curse, it is to be expected from such a isolated place. The whole trekking was arranged in the most efficient of ways and the care that Balaram showed while helping me along the trek was admirable. Nepal Hiking Team is the best trekking agency that I had worked with and it clearly shows on their brilliant services and amazing team and staff members.
