About Trip:

Only recently opened, the Khopra Trek offers a less explored, less crowded, and off the beaten trail in the Annapurna region. This is the perfect route for those looking for shorter alternatives to the classic treks in the area that offer a certain level of seclusion and serenity in addition to the region’s famous mountain panoramas and intriguing cultures.

Starting with the drive from Pokhara to the popular starting point of Nayapul, the trek sets out towards the village of Birethanti where we pause to register with the TIMS Card and Annapurna conservation area trekking permits. Two challenging days of hiking lead to Ghorepani and the supreme daybreak vistas from Poon Hill (3210m), Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Fishtail, and a host of other Himalayan giants aglow in the warm light of sunrise. Tadapani is the next destination, trailing through lush jungles en route to the village, then the trek moves on through dense rhododendron forests and a patchwork of Yak pastures to Bayeli Kharka – if trekking in spring the rhododendrons are a blaze of color from their flowers. Gradually the trek inclines upwards through the tree line to open slopes below Dhaulagiri and Annapurna, offering superb views of the two legendary peaks.

A side trip from Khopra Danda to Khayar Lake (3600m) is an option that adds even more luster to the journey, offering sublime reflected views of the Himalayas from the sacred Hindu waters.

After the return hike to Khopra Danda the trek descends to Tatopani and the welcome indulgence of the village’s natural hot springs before making the return drive to Pokhara on the following day to complete the memorable experience.

As with many of the treks in the region the optimal times to consider the Khopra trek is the spring season of March through April or the autumn period from September through to November. That’s simply a guideline though, and for those wishing to traverse the region in the quieter months of the year we have the connections and experience locally to make it viable year round. The Khopra trek is the perfect expression of all that hiking in Nepal has to offer, so feel free to get in touch with us and allow our experienced staff to discuss all the options available to you.

Amazing experience with Nepal trekking experts!

Rating:  

Rajesh and his brother Rabin are a great team and organized our amazing 10 days trekking in the Kopra Dhanda region. We decided to do the Kopra Dhanda trek as it is far less crowded compared to the Annapurna circuit but has the same beautiful view on the highest mountains of earth. Before going to Nepal, we had a constant email contact with Rajesh, who took care of all the permissions, transportations and accomodations. This safed a lot of time for us and we can definitely recommend to do it in this way. Rabin was our guide during the trek. He was always there for us, told us interesting facts about the nature and culture over there, was always flexible to meet our needs and enabled this unforgettable experience. We (4 persons) decided to go for one porter (Guna) which was definitely the right decision. Guna is a warm-hearted person and passionated card player and took parts of our stuff, depending on our respective daily condition. From breakfast to dinner (including fresh fruits as dessert), Guna and Rabin took care of our physical well-being and after a few days and many card games in the evening it really felt like spending time with two new friends.
