Khorpa Danda Trek
Autumn & Spring
The Khopra Ridge Trek is one of many treks available in Nepal to trekkers. If you want to add a beautiful experience to your trekking journey, the Khopra Ridge Trek is ideal.
The Khopra Ridge is located in the heart of the Annapurna Region, 3640 meters above sea level. This is also one of the Annapurna Region’s off-the-beaten-path trekking trails. The trail is not crowded in any way. The Khopra Ridge Trek offers views of Mount Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, and Nilgiri. Our path takes us through orchid and rhododendron forests. From Poon Hill, you will have a spectacular sunrise view of the Himalayas. You will also be able to see Machhapuchhre from Tadapani.
The adventure begins in Kathmandu. We will then travel to Pokhara, from where we will begin our trek to Ghandruk. We will travel from Ghandruk to the dobato and then to Khorpa Danda. Take advantage of the opportunity to explore Khyar Lake and travel from Khorpa to the Tato pani. Finally, we’ll take a local bus back to Pokhara. You will take a tourist bus back to Kathmandu. This is how the eleventh day of the Khorpa Ridge trek concludes.
Because this is a remote area, we will primarily stay in tea houses/guesthouses during the trekking period. Our journey concludes in Kathmandu. During the trial, you will be able to see rare species such as Dzos (a cross between a cow and a yak), Himalayan Thar, and Nepal’s national bird, the Danphe.
The trekking days are planned for the convenience of the tourists; if you want to add something to this route, we can take your suggestions into account. The Khorpa Ridge Trek will make your trekking resume shine.
