Ranking among the best short treks, the Khopra Ridge Trek is one of the most beautiful treks in the country. Containing all of the elements of a classic trekking route like excursing to ethnic villages, encountering wildlife, panoramic views of the mountains and a beautiful landscape adorned with alpine forests and lush vegetation, the Khopra Ridge Trek is brimming with natural beauties. With an off-the-beaten-paths trekking trail in the Annapurna Region, the Khopra Ridge Trek presents remarkable views of Himalayan peaks like Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South and Nilgiri among various others. Traversing to the Kaire Lake is a major highlight of the Khopra Ridge trekking that allows you to have a closer look at the sapphire waters of the winsome lake like never before. Beguiling views of Mount Machhapuchhre and Mount Hiunchuli can also be seen from the village of Ghandruk. Draping down from the Annapurna South towards the world’s deepest gorge, Khopra Ridge Trek offers a stunning balcony to observe the Himalayas. The route to Khopra Ridge leaves the main hiking trail before Poon Hill, ascending instead to the ridge and a community trekking lodge poised atop it.
Beginning the trip from Kathmandu Valley, you would be flying to the beautiful lake side city of Pokhara. The short flight presents some amazing views of the mountains as well. From Pokhara, a short drive to Nayapul results on looking at the natural terrain that is ornamented ravishingly with the growth of rich vegetation and terrace farms of mustards and rice. The contrast of the farms under the blue of the sky is noteworthy and makes for a pleasant drive. Trekking to the settlement at Birethanti, you would be subjected to observing the ethnic people residing at the area. Their traditions and their Himalayan lifestyle at such a remote location are quite apparent. The Himalayan peaks emerge once you reach Ghandruk. The ivory mountains are the most beautiful to witness and their encompassment into the trekking trail makes the trekking journey brilliant.
Following the trail at the Annapurna foothill, you would be trekking on paths that are ornamented with the blossoms of rhododendron flowers and ethnic Gurung settlements. The landscape of the region is like a picturesque portrait with the incorporation of an amazing Himalayan tapestry in the background. Trekking the Khopra Ridge Trek presents an absolutely beautiful experience which is sure to be engraved into your memories for days to come. With a moderate trip grading, the Khopra Ridge Trek can be undergone with relative ease and presents trails that are not too difficult to follow. With small rivers and ebullient flow of streams, travelling the Khopra Ridge Trek makes for a wonderful trekking journey. With yak herds ambling by, there’s often a surreal view of planes flying below you through the Kali Gandaki Gorge. The ethereal cliffs of the Fang Mountain tend to illuminate at dusk, giving off a mystical feel to its quiddity.
