Brief Description

The Khopra Ridge trek is a unique trek in the land of the highest Mountains in the world, Nepal. Different from the other treks in Nepal in terms of changing sceneries, mountain views, and the most unique aspect of walking on a ridge which gives a spectacular "on top of the world" feeling. The highlight of the trek is the sunrise view from Khopra ridge which is towering at a height of 3900 meters from where one can spot not one or two, but 23 major Himalayan peaks. The trail takes you through alpine meadows, dense forests, beautiful Rhododendron abundant sections, and pristine villages based in the Annapurna range of mountains. Unlike the popular and crowd favorite Annapurna Base Camp Trek, the Khopra Ridge Trek takes you away from the crowd and presents you with three major points: Poon hilltop, Khopra Ridge, and Muldai top, all of which are very rare to find in a single trek. This is a moderate grade trek which demands a good fitness level due to its fair share of ascends and descends. The Khopra Ridge Trek is perfect for anyone looking for an offbeat trekking trail in Nepal along with stunning mountain views and beautiful landscapes.

Day 2

Drive from Pokhara to Hile (4922 ft) - 52 km. Trek from Hile to Ulleri (6578 ft) - 2.5 km / 1.5 hours

Today is the first day of the Khopra Ridge Trek and our destination is Ulleri, a beautiful village. The hike from Hile to Ulleri is perfect for day one since the plan is to take it easy and let your body rest well and acclimatize for the upcoming days. The trek from Hile will take you to the hamlet of Thikedunga in an hour followed by crossing two small suspension bridges and then hiking over stairs till you reach Ulleri. The trail to Ulleri is a strenuous hike of over 3500 stairs. This is a pretty good warmup as it gives you a decent head start for the upcoming days. You will get glimpses of small yet pretty Nepali Villages throughout the way, also a chance to interact with some of the villagers. This particular stretch can get little crowded as it is also the starting point of other Major treks like Annapurna base camp but it will last for a couple of days till Ghorepani, our next halt. Have dinner and retire for the night. Overnight in teahouse.


localtion
Day 3

Ulleri to Ghorepani (9318 ft) - 7.5km / 5 hours

As you leave Ulleri behind after a gradual ascend of around 200 meters you will enter a pretty thick forestry trail with huge varieties of trees all around. This stretch will be a gradual ascend till you reach Nangethanti Hamlet which is around 5 km from Ulleri followed by a continuous gradual ascend till you reach Ghorepani. Blessed with deep thick rhododendron forest all the way, if the season is right you will be walking through endless pink rhododendron trees. Ghorepani is a big Hamlet in the lap of a slope, so the whole village is in an ascending order throughout thus there are two sections named as lower Ghorepani and upper Ghorepani. We will stay in teahouses at upper Ghorepani as you need to wake up early and approach Poon hill the next morning. Sleep early than usual as we must wake up early to get the amazing views from Poon Hill which awaits the next day.


localtion
Day 4

Ghorepani to Poon Hill Top (10,532 ft) and back - 1.5km / 1 hour. Ghorepani to Swanta (7218 ft) - 4.6km / 4 hours.

Today we wake up before sunrise and make our way to reach Poon Hill Top from Ghorepani. There is an ascent of 300 meters. The sunrise view from this particular point is stunning. You can spot several major Greater Himalayan ranges, Mt Dhaulagiri 8167 m, Mt Annapurna south 7129 m, Mt. Himchuli 6221 m and last but not the least Mt. Machhapuchre 6993 m, which is arguably the most beautiful mountain in the world. Spend some time at the Poon Hill Top and start your way back to Ghorepani for breakfast from where you will be continuing to your next halt which is Swanta. The 4.5 km trek to Swanta from Ghorepani is a combination of huge descend and ascend making it contrasting, but not monotonous. Till halfway of the trek, you will be descending with amazing variations. After halfway through the trek, you will come across an isolated village named Chitre. The trail has a descent of about 470 meters which is quite a lot for your knees to handle, so be careful with your descending techniques. Initially, there is an open section of not so dense rhododendron forest with small clearings through which Mt. Annapurna South plays hide and seek on your right side of the valley. After crossing Chitre there will be a mustard farm which adds to an amazing color contrast on the landscape. The last part involves a continuous ascend until you reach today’s halt, Swanta, a giant hamlet on a mountain surface, surrounded by never-ending terrace farms. Explore the village and retire for the night in teahouse/homestay.


localtion
Day 5

Swanta to Sistibung (9843 ft) - 5 km / 5 hours.

This day is crucial as you enter a different zone. You will be gaining a height of 800 m which is not a matter of joke in one day but the distance is small too so it makes a more thrilling ascend throughout. The trail is extremely enchanting as it goes through thick green jungle and eventually cuts through a zigzag way which has a combination of rhododendron and oak trees. The hike to the mountain top is on a trail which is cut on slopes. Be aware of the significant height gain of today's trek. If the weather is good you might get glimpses of snow-capped mountains ahead of you. The water points are very limited on this day so before a particular point named evergreen cottage you will come across a small river from which you should fill up water, it is pure, thus drinkable. As you will reach Sistibung by lunchtime, do not miss out on an acclimatization walk which will help and prepare you for the next day's trek to Khopra Ridge. Retire for the night.


localtion
Day 6

Sistibung to Khopra Ridge (12,467 ft) - 3 km / 3 hours.

Today's trek is the shortest yet the most exciting of them all, you will be finally reaching Khopra ridge. Within 3 hours, you will be ascending 700 m. There is no water point at all along the way. The real surprise awaits ahead, as you leave Sistibung behind, within half an hour the surroundings will clear out, the views open up with giant chunks of snow-capped mountains on your right. The approach to the open grounds is through rhododendron bushes, it is a continuous zigzag ascent followed by a sudden deviation to the left from the trail where you will have to be careful as the trail is very narrow. On your left, you will witness the open views of Nepal Mountains covered with thick forest and all of them will be under you. Once you reach Khopra ridge, the views of the surrounding are simply mesmerizing. Towards one end of the ridge you will get the majestic view Mt Dhaulagiri along with many other well-known mountains such as Mt. Annapurna south, Mt. Annapurna Fang, little glimpses of Annapurna one, Nilgiri South, Nilgiri north and many more. As the sun sets it will cast a color which makes these giant Mountains much more beautiful. It is one of the unique things about this charming trek, there will be many instances where you will get to see the snow-capped views from the tea houses itself. Retire for the night.


localtion
Day 7

Khopra Ridge (12,467 ft) to Khopra Viewpoint (12,796 ft) to Dobato (11,319 ft) - 11 km / 7 hours.

Wake up early before sunrise and make your way to the Khopra viewpoint, a half an hour walk on the ridge. One side you will get to see the green valleys of Nepal Mountains and on the other end, you have the giant snow-capped mountains. The best of the lot will be Mt. Dhaulagiri, it will be the clear winner among all in terms of views, there will be nothing in between you and Dhaulagiri to block the view. Once you are done with the top, come back around breakfast time and get ready to head on to your next destination, Dobato. You are in for a real treat for this day as a giant meadow walk awaits ahead of you. Reach Bayeli, which is your lunch point, through a combination of descending and ascending through thick Rhododendron forest. The descent ends with two small but extremely beautiful streams which can be crossed over man-made wooden bridges, both the streams are in the midst of thick forests. So after 2 km of ascend comes the real highlight of the day, alpine meadows. During the end of April or the end of September they will at the peak of their beauty as the land will be covered with lush green grasslands. Adding up to the beauty, there will be a few rhododendron trees along the way. After a couple of hours of walk on a meadow ridge, we reach Dobato, at a height of 3450 m, and if the weather is clear then there are high chances of getting glimpses of snow-capped mountains from this Hamlet. Retire for the night.


localtion
Day 8

Dobato to Muldai Top (11,933 ft) to Ghandruk (6726 ft) - 12 km / 7 hours. Ghandruk to Pokhara - 60 km drive.

Today is the last day of your amazing trek. Wake up before sunrise for one last surprise. Make your way to the Muldai Top. It will take you around 30mins to reach Muldai top which is at a height of 3637 m. From this point, you will get an amazing view of Mt. Annapurna South and Mt. Himchuli which are both connected with a Col by each other. Col means A pass or ridge which connects two mountains. After a visit to Muldai Top, it is time for you to end your trek at Ghandruk. Trek till Ghandruk is all descent of 1500 m so it will be a bit tough on the knees. It is 12 km in total which should take 5 to 6 hours. The trail is entirely between forests but till the halfway there you will come across a pretty big Hamlet on the way known as Tadapani which also connects to the major trek of Annapurna base camp.
