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 the Kaire 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, 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.
