About Trip:

Kopra Trek is just recently opened, less explored, less crowded, off the beaten trekking route of Annapurna region Nepal. The short and delightful Kopra Danda Trek is also popular as Kopra Ridge trek which starts from Nayapul, Pokhara. This is the perfect scenic trek to avoid crowded part of Annapurna region such as Annapurna circuit, Annapurna Base Camp etc. and let you enjoy with amazing nature and pure culture within limited holiday. After driving one hour and half from Pokhara, we reach at Nayapul then begin our real adventure hike. The Kopra Danda trek continues via Birethanti village where we first register our TIMS Card and Annapurna conservation area trekking permits. Within couple of days challenging hike we reach at Ghorepani. It offers one of the most well known and popular view point called Poon Hill 3210m. The Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Fishtail and many more countless beautiful peaks looks stunning with sun rise. Now days Poon Hill is also popular as Ghorepani/Poon Hill sun rise trek.

After Breakfast the trail leads us Tadapani via amazing lush jungle walk. Onward from Tadapani we embark newly opened less crowded part of the trek passing by dense of Rhododendron trees and some Yak pasture towards to Bayeli Kharka. If we are trekking in spring season, we encounter just colorful jungle by Nepalese national flower Rhododendron. Gradually it takes us above tree line and offers spectacular Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Himalaya range as close as possible. Kopra Danda will invite us another beautiful side trip to sacred lake of Hindu people called Khayar Lake which adds extra value on this trip. It is one of the best view points of this region, equally popular for sunrise without doubt and let us stands 3660m elevation from the sea level. Then we descend to Tatopani village where we can have another unique experience of natural hot spring. Tatopani is the main trekking route of Jomsom/Muktinath. After collecting life time memory, we will drive back to lakes city Pokhara.

The best time for Kopra Ridge trek is March, April, May and September, October and November of the year. However we still can trek rest of the months which let you experience more peace, establish better connection with locals and provides pure experience. Ultimately the trek perfectly describes what Nepal has to offers. For further detail please feel free contact us.
