The Khopra Hill trek is your best choice to be close to nature, see the beauty of the Himalayas and all without strenuous climbs or long trekking days. Furthermore, this amazing Khopra Hill trek offers you off the beaten path trekking which overlaps with the main trail of the more popular Poon Hill trek. During the trek, you’ll pass several local communities on the way where we will get an opportunity to encounter with the rural villages and explore their interesting culture and traditions! The major attractions of Himalayan Friends’ Khopra Hill trek in Nepal are visits to the famous Poon Hill trek 3,210m/10,532ft), the Khayer Lake, Muldai Peak and Khopra Danda. Head out with Himalayan Friends on this newly opened trekking trail, the Khopra Hill!
The route of the Khopra Hill Trek
The route of the Khopra Hill trek officialy starts from Nayapul. But before that we travel by scenic flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara. In this amazing lakeside city Himalayan Friends suggest you to enjoy the sights and boating on Phewa Lake, as the next day our trek begins! Follow a part of the Poon Hill trek and visit the popular Gurung villages of Ulleri, Ghorepani and Tadapani. From here we head off the beaten trail until we reach to Chistibung.  The trek goes through a lush thick forest blend of pine, oak, and rhododendron trees. Here you can encounter with the various rare and endangers flora and fauna. As we trek closer to Khopra Danda, the panoramic views of the entire Annapurna range and Dhaulagiri massif will appear in front of us. Absolutely breathtaking.  After enjoying the sights from Khopra Danda, we head further up and visit Khayer Lake at an elevation of 4,660m/15,289ft before returning back to Khopra Danda. We follow a similar route back to Tadapani and visit Muldai Peak in the morning for another stunning sunrise view! The trek overlaps back with the Poon Hill trek and we make our way back to Nayapul. We spend another night at Pokhara before flying back to Kathmandu and conclude the incredible Khopra Hill trek in Nepal!
