Khopra Danda Trek is a newly found trekking trail in the Annapurna region of Nepal just like Mardi Himal Trek. The off-beaten and rarely explored trail offers breathtaking views of Mt. Annapurna I, Annapurna II, Mt. Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, and Lamjung Himal. Similarly, trek through the tranquil traditional villages, farmlands, fast-flowing rivers, and dense forests.  Khopra Trek takes you to an elevation of 3640 meters deep into the beautiful nature and Himalayan peaks of the Annapurna region. Likewise, passing through the local settlement allows you to know about the day-to-day activities and traditions of local people.

The Khopra Danda Trek starts with the drive from Pokhara to Kimche and heads towards Tadapani. It is less crowded along with an unspoiled trail. Likewise, passing Byali Kharka, the trail leads you to Chistibang meadows. Moreover, the views of Dhaulagiri, Dhampus Peak, Annapurna I, and Annapurna south from the trail are pleasant to your eyes. Upon reaching Khopra Ridge, a hike to Khayera Lake would be a great option, which takes around 4-5 hours. The most exciting part of the Khopra Danda Trek is the Hike to Poon Hill and the mesmerizing views of the sunrise.

Major Attractions of Khopra Danda Trek

Khopra Ridge or Khopra Danda:

Khopra Ridge itself is one of the major attractions of this trek. The ridge offers 360-degree views of mountains including Annapurna South, Tukuche Peak, Mt. Dhaulagiri, and Nilgiri.

Khayer Lake:

If you visit to Khayer Lakes then, you will gain an elevation of up to 4600 meters. The breathtaking Himalayan views from the lake have attracted many tourists lately. Likewise, Hindu pilgrims also consider this lake as a holy lake which leads them to Nirvana.

Hike to Poon Hill

Poon Hill is another vantage point to enjoy the views of the mountains. Moreover, you can witness the majestic sunrise view from the Poon Hill. It takes around 45 minutes to reach the vantage point from Ghorepani.

Khopra Danda Trek Difficulty

If you are thinking how difficult is Khopra Danda Trek? Well, it is known as an easy and short trek in the Annapurna region. An average walking per day is 5-6 hours during the trek. However, excellent physical fitness with some trekking experience can be relatively easy. So, we suggest preparing yourself at least 30 days before by performing some physical fitness or even day hikes.

The best time to do the Khopra Danda Trek

Just like other treks in the Annapurna region, Annapurna circuit or ABC Trek, autumn and spring season are the best time to do this trek. However, depending on the weather, one can trek to Khopra Ridge anytime a year. The Autumn season falls under the months of September-December, which is the peak trekking season in Nepal. Likewise, the months of March-May known as the Spring season is the 2nd best time to trek in Nepal. Monsoon season can be very difficult to step on the slippery trail because of persistent rain. And, in the winter season snowy trails can be risky.
