Khopra Danda Trek is one of the best rural trekking options in the Western Himalayas of Nepal. With the trek taking us to the end of the Annapurna Region, this trek gets us closer to the Tibetan-influenced lifestyle of the Magar people.
Hike all the way along the off the beaten trails of Nepal through the forests of rhododendron and juniper to get to the high vantage point of Khopra Danda. The trekking starts with a drive to the lake city of Pokhara. Spend the time strolling around the city and then the next day, we will drive to the village of Nayapul from where the real trekking will begin. From Nayapul, hike along the Modi Khola to get to the village of Ulleri before crossing the natural stone steps. After that, get to the village of Ghorepani for a summit of the Poonhill, the best vantage point of the Annapurna Region. Then, our trek starts to follow a different route from Tadapani. Pass through other villages to get to another vantage point of the Khopra Danda. During the trek, enjoy the views of the Annapurna, Machhapuchhre, Manaslu, and such other high peaks. Let’s not forget about the visit to the Khair Lake.
