The Khopra Ridge Trek, also known as the Khopra Danda Trek or Khopra Hill Trek, is a captivating and less-traveled trekking route in the Annapurna region of Nepal. Offering stunning mountain views, cultural experiences, and a sense of solitude, this trek is a great alternative to some of the more popular routes like the Annapurna Base Camp or the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek.

Here’s an in-depth overview of the Khopra Ridge Trek:

Location: The Khopra Ridge Trek is situated in the southern region of the Annapurna Sanctuary, providing unique perspectives of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges.

Duration: The trek typically takes around 8 to 12 days, depending on the starting and ending points, acclimatization needs, and your preferred pace. It’s a moderately challenging trek that offers a variety of landscapes and experiences.


  • Khopra Ridge Viewpoint: The trek’s highlight is undoubtedly the Khopra Ridge viewpoint, which offers one of the most stunning panoramic vistas in the Annapurna region. The viewpoint provides awe-inspiring views of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, Nilgiri, and other peaks.
  • Community Lodges: The trek is known for its community-based lodges, where trekkers can stay in simple but comfortable accommodations managed by local communities. This provides an opportunity to engage with the local culture and support the community.
  • Ghorepani and Poon Hill: The trek often includes a visit to Ghorepani and the famous Poon Hill viewpoint, known for its breathtaking sunrise views over the Himalayas.
  • Less Crowded: While gaining popularity, the Khopra Ridge Trek is still less crowded compared to some of the more mainstream treks, offering a more tranquil and serene experience.

Cultural Experience: Along the trail, you’ll have the chance to interact with the local Gurung and Magar communities, gaining insights into their traditional lifestyle, customs, and hospitality.

Trekking Permits: As with all treks in Nepal, you’ll need the necessary permits, which usually include the Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP) and the Trekkers’ Information Management System (TIMS) card.

Difficulty: The Khopra Ridge Trek is considered to be of moderate difficulty, with some uphill sections and varying terrain. Adequate preparation and physical fitness are recommended.

Alternative Routes: There are various route variations for the Khopra Ridge Trek, allowing trekkers to customize their journey based on time, preferences, and fitness levels.

Season: The best times to undertake the Khopra Ridge Trek are during the spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) when the weather is relatively stable and the views are clear.
