Why Is Khopra Ridge A Must-Do Trek?

A beautiful and offbeat trek in Nepal, Khopra Ridge presents mountain views unlike any other. The ridge offers views of not just one but 22 mountain peaks, and two of them are among the 14 tallest mountains in the world – Mt. Dhaulagiri and Annapurna I!

The sunrise view from the ridge is one of the key highlights of the trek. You will walk for two whole days on the ridge, admiring the mountain views and the thrilling climb to the enchanting Khayer Lake. You also get to see the deepest gorge in the world – Kali Gandaki, which separates Dhaulagiri from the Annapurna Ranges.

The trekking trail follows through alpine meadows, dense forests, and quaint hamlets. The trek is based in the Annapurna Range but it is quite offbeat as compared to the Annapurna Base Camp Trek (ABC Trek). Khopra Ridge presents two major highlights, the ridge itself and the high-altitude lake, Khayer.

The trek, although not as tough as the ABC trek, demands a good level of fitness as you will come across many ascents, descents, and changes in terrain. Khopra Ridge has its challenges, but the trek is a must-do when you are in Nepal.

About The Trek

It is a moderate-grade trek that starts from Pokhara at an altitude of 2,760 ft and the highest point of the trek is at 15,300 ft at Khayer Lake. For the most part, the trek is along the remote villages of Nepal.

How-Khopra-Ridge-Looks-On-Day-1

Drive From Pokhara To Kimche And Trek To Ghandruk

Today is the first day of trekking and we will start from Kimche. Kimche is a short drive away from Pokhara and it takes about 2 hrs to reach Kimche. From here, the trek starts toward Ghandruk. The trek to Ghandruk is an easy to moderate one with a gradual ascent. Initially, the trail from Kimchee is a little narrow and passes through a small mountain settlement.

As you keep ascending the trail, the mountain views open up and the Modi Khola River flows serenely beside you. If you look on the opposite side of the mountain, you can spot the Mardi Himal trail. Ghandruk starts to come into view about 1.5 hrs into the trek. It is a gradual ascend to Ghandruk from here.

Ghandruk is a panoramic village in the Modi Khola Valley of Nepal. It is the largest village in the Annapurna Conservation area and you can see the old stone and slate-roofed architecture. From Ghandruk, you can see sweeping views of the Annapurna Massif with Annapurna I – the tenth tallest mountain in the world. Here, you can observe the everyday life of the Gurung people of Nepal. The village is lined with prayer flags on all streets with accompanying mountain views making Ghandruk a picturesque and leisurely location where you can feel the serenity of the mountains.

Interestingly, Ghandruk also happens to be a recruitment hub for the British army’s Gurkha soldiers. This allows you to observe and learn about the Gurkha heritage and the community.

Your overnight stay will be in a teahouse or lodge in Ghandruk.

 

Trek From Ghandruk To Tadapani

Today’s trek will take you from Ghandruk to another mountain hamlet, Tadapani. The inclines are quite steep in places and you will gain around 2500 ft in altitude today. It’s a lovely walk through Rhododendron forests to Tadapani.

Waking up to a beautiful sunrise in Ghandruk, we will have our breakfast and start towards Tadapani. Begin the trek by taking the narrow path that runs through the village. Five minutes into the trek and you will arrive at a junction point. The trail that runs centrally heads towards Kommorong and further on to ABC. We will take the route that heads west to arrive at Tadapani.

The trail is cut into steps so it can be a little hard on your legs. Although you may face a little difficulty ascending 10 minutes into the climb and a surprise waits for you! You arrive at a beautiful viewpoint named the ‘Lovely Viewpoint’ presents stunning views of Mt. Macchapucchre, Mt Annapurna South, Mt Annapurna III, Mt Ganga, and Mt Himchuli.

Continue on the trail and you will enter a beautiful forest of Rhododendron and a variety of other tall trees. Sunlight streams in through the dense canopy making the forest appear sparkling here and there. If you’re trekking in April, the Rhododendron trees are blooming with big red flowers. Continue walking through the forested trail until you reach a small bridge crossing over a stream. The stream is a good source of water and you can refill your water bottles here. After the stream, it is a steep ascent of about 45 minutes. A little more into the trek and you will arrive at a tiny settlement called Bhaisi Kharka, it is a remote village in the far western region of Nepal.

The remaining part of the trek is through similar forested trails that you have encountered before until you arrive at Tadapani. We will have lunch at Tadapani and the stay for the night is arranged in a guest house Tadapni. Mt. Macchapucchare is vividly visible from here and you will end your day with a beautiful sunset view over this majestic mountain peak.

Trek From Tadapani To Dobata

Today again begin your trek through the forested trails of Bamboo and Rhododendrons. Further,  into the trail, Oak trees start appearing, and the Annapurna Ranges remain on your right. From this point onwards it is a descent for about 30 minutes and then you start climbing up once again.

An hour’s climb takes you to Meshar where you have your first water source. Fill your water bottles here. From here, you can see grand views of Mt Annapurna Fang, and Mt Annapurna. The two mountains remain visible until you reach Isharu. From Meshar, the trail starts ascending once again, all the way to Isharu. Isharu is another great viewpoint with a staggering panorama of Mt Ganesh Himal, Mt Annapurna II, and Mt Annapurna IV, along with other peaks in the Annapurna Range.

A mix of ascent and descent of about an hour will take you to Dobata. Have a delicious lunch at Dobata and an overnight stay at a teahouse here.

How-Khopra-Ridge-Looks-On-Day-4

Trek From Dobata To Chhistibang Via Muldai Top

Today is going to be a long day of trekking, so we will start early in the morning. From Dobata, the trail begins with an ascent and after ascending for about 30 minutes, you will arrive at a junction. The trail on the right goes to a hidden lake in the Himalayas and the one straight ahead follows towards Khopra Ridge. We will take the trail that continues toward Khopra Ridge.

As you continue on the trail, the Annapurna Ranges begin to disappear giving way to the Dhaulagiri Range. The appearance of the Dhaulagiri Ranges indicates that you are close to the Muldai Top viewpoint, which lies en route to Chhistibang.

Muldai viewpoint offers a straight-line panorama of 22 mountain peaks. Two of these mountain peaks rank amongst the tallest peaks in the world – Mt Dhaulagiri I (7th highest) and Mt Annapurna I (9th highest). The complete ensemble of Annapurna ranges, Dhaulagiri Range, Mt Nilgiri North & South, and Tukche is a sight that you will never forget in your life.

From Muldai Top, descend for about 2 hrs and you will arrive at Chhistibang. The teahouse here is located in the middle of a forest! Overnight stay will be at Chhistibang before we proceed to Khopra Ridge the next day.

How-Khopra-Ridge-Looks-On-Day-5

Trek From Chhistibang To Khopra Ridge

From Chhistibang, it is a short trek to Khopra Ridge. Khopra Ridge is about 3.5 km away and takes about 3 hrs to reach the ridge. The trail from Chhistibang to the Khopra Ridge although short is quite steep and you gain an altitude of 200 m every km.

As you walk out of the treeline from Chhistibang, the views become more and more impressive every moment. You will be gazing at snow-capped mountains all around and also come across numerous small streams and waterfalls along the way. The trail will snake around the ridge taking you to a teahouse at the ridge. The teahouse is a viewpoint in itself.

From the ridge, you can see close-up views of the Dhaulagiri Range along with Mt. Annapurna I, Annapurna South, Annapurna Fang, Mt. Nilgiri North & South and Mt Tukuche.

The sunset view here is truly amazing and after the sun sets, the temperature drops drastically, so keep your warm layers on to protect yourself from the cold.

How-Khopra-Ridge-Looks-On-Day-6

Trek From Khopra Ridge To Khayer Lake And Back To Khopra Ridge

Today we will trek to a high-altitude glacial lake, Khayer Lake. It is a 16 km long trek so we need to start as early as possible. The beginning of the trek is a levelled walk for about 45 minutes. The Dhauligiri Range accompanies you today as well. Soon the trek becomes a mix of ascents and descents. This continues for the next two hours. Look to your left and you will see the deepest valley in the world – the Kali Gandaki. It is located between Mt. Tukuche and Mt. Nilgiri North. It is an intimidating yet incredible sight to behold.

Keep walking and you will soon arrive at barren fields quite similar to the cold deserts of Ladakh and Spiti. This is an indication that you will soon arrive at Khayer Lake. Keep walking and you will arrive at a Dhaba serving tea and snacks. From this point, it is another 1.5 hr trek to the lake. From here, it is a continuous ascend on steps and along the way, you will get to see symbols of bells and temples. These symbols represent the mythological tales of the region. The lake is situated at the foot of Mt. Annapurna South and the mountain looms large above the lake - a majestic sight to behold!

We will spend some time at the lake, post which we will return back to the ridge. It will take about 3.5 hrs to return to Khopra Ridge. Enjoy a beautiful sunset view as you descend down the trail.

Trek From Khopra Ridge To Paudwar Via Gorge Point

The trek from Khopra Ridge to Paudwar takes about 6.5 hrs and you will cover a distance of 8.5 km. The trek starts with a gradual descent and soon you will arrive at a forest covered with Rhododendrons.  During the months of March and April, the forest is bedecked with blossoming red, pink, purple, and white Rhododendrons. Crossing the forest, you arrive at a teahouse at Loreni which is about 2 hrs above Paudwar. There’s a teahouse at Loreni as well. From Loreni, the trail winds along the hills of the Jarbhang Valley into a patch of bamboo forest and cow pastures. Crossing this section of the forest, it is a steep descent all the Paudwar.

Paudwar is a scenic traditional village belonging to the Magar community of Nepal. The lovely hamlet showcases the ancient Nepali stonework architecture in its houses. All the houses here are more than 80 years old. The people here are very friendly and welcoming. The labyrinthine paths, the winding staircases, and the stonework architecture of Paudwar make it worth the effort of the trek. Tonight, you will stay in a homestay at Paudwar.

Trek From Paudwar To Tatopani And Drive To Pokhara

This is the last day of your trek and we will trek down from Paudwar to Tatopani and drive back to Pokhara. Tatopani village falls on the old route to Mansarovar Lake. It is an easy descent from Paudwar to Tatopani. You will descend through a forested trail for about 2 hrs and once the treeline recedes, you will walk alongside a stream until you reach Tatopani. The Khopra Ridge Trek ends here. From here, you will be driven back to Pokhara, which is approximately 110 km away from Tatopani and the drive takes about 5 hrs.

In the unlikely event that TTH cancels a trek prior to the scheduled departure date:

While it is extremely rare for TTH to cancel a trek, we understand that unforeseen circumstances or natural disasters may occasionally require us to do so before the scheduled departure. These circumstances could include continuous rain or snow, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, floods, earthquakes, or any other natural calamity that poses a risk to the safety of our trekkers. Additionally, unforeseeable events such as local riots, curfews, pandemics, lockdowns, government orders, or any similar situations that compromise the safety of the trekking experience may also necessitate a cancellation.

In the event of such a cancellation, TTH will provide you with a voucher equivalent to the amount you paid for the trek. This voucher can be redeemed for any of our treks within the next year, allowing you to still enjoy an adventure with us at a later date.

Note

  • The issuance of a voucher is not applicable in situations where you are required to descend from the trek for any reason. The trek leader may make the decision to send you down from the trek due to factors such as insufficient fitness level, symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), high blood pressure, exceeding the designated turn-around-time, health concerns, or if you are found smoking, drinking, or violating the rules set for the trek. In such cases, the provision of a voucher does not apply.

In the rare event that TTH shifts a trek:

We would like to emphasize that weather conditions in high-altitude areas are highly unpredictable and can undergo sudden changes at any time, irrespective of the day. Additionally, circumstances beyond our control, such as natural disasters, political unrest, pandemics, and lockdowns, may impact the feasibility of conducting a trek. In cases where we are unable to proceed with an event due to such circumstances that are beyond our direct control, we will make every effort to provide you with an alternative trek that is safer and more suitable.

In such situations, we will issue a voucher to offset the cost difference between the originally scheduled trek and the alternative trek. This voucher can be redeemed at any time within one year from the date of issue. Please note that a refund fee or reimbursement of the cost difference is not applicable in these cases.

Note:

  • Change of trek batch is dependent on the availability of seats in the batch
  • In case of transferring a trek to a friend, he/she should satisfy all the mandatory requirements put forward by TTH
