THE KHOPRA RIDGE TREK
The Khopra ridge trek is one of the most rewarding short treks in the Himalayas. If you only have a few days in Nepal and wish to get as close as possible to the mountains, the Khopra ridge trek is the trek of choice. Magnificent mountain views, idyllic villages, alpine rhododendron and oak forests, and the feeling of being on top of the world are just some of the features of the Khopra ridge trek. Mountain views from Khopra ridge are superb and include Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, Fang and Nilgiri. And as you ascend from Tadapani towards the Khopra ridge, the views of Macchapuchare (Fishtail) are simply spectacular. From Khopra ridge, you have the option to ascend further to Bayeli lake. This trek is especially spectacular if you come in end February/early March when the rhododendrons are in bloom.
The Khopra ridge trek begins and ends in Pokhara. Our goal, Khopra ridge, lies north of Ghorepani-Pun hill. And it isn’t as busy as the Ghorepani trail. Check out more of our trek options in the Annapurna region.
Meg Peterson, one of our most loyal trekkers (she’s trekked with us more than 9 times since the 90’s) completed this trek in December 2018 at the age of 90. Read her blog which is an account of her Khopra ridge trek here.
