Let’s not call the Khopra Danda is newly opened trek route in Annapurna region. Already been 4 years but very fewer people heard about the trek. When trekking in Nepal comes it’s like Everest Base camp! Or Annapurna Circuit something similar and most popular.

In Annapurna region still, we can call Khopra Danda as off beaten trails because of fewer tea houses at some point. Rugged Trails Nepal short trek to Khopra danda starts from Pokhara and end at Pokhara. Most of the popular trekking routes such as Ghorepani, Muktinath are spoiled because of road construction so the Khopra Danda or Mohare Danda trekking routes are the alternative trekking routes to see natural beauty.

The Stunning view of Mt. Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri,  Annapurna I, II, III, South, Lamjung, Hiunchuli, Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) Himalayas are the main highlights of the Trek. During the Springtime can see the amazing Rhododendron forest and also the wildlife while trekking. The Khayar Lake itself is another attraction of this trek which is at 4,827 M. Autumn is another the best time to travel in Nepal and during September to November we can see beautiful landscaped paddy and Millet farm. We can see Yaks gazing around the hills especially in the Summer, Monsoon and Autumn time. Ghorepani is another attraction of the trek which is one the famous viewpoint for Himalayan ranges and also for sunrise and sunset.

The short Khopra danda trek starts after driving from Pokhara to Ghandruk village. We are skipping one day walk from Nayapul to Ghandruk because we will be walking by the roadside. To make the trip shorter and to skip the dusty and muddy roads we will take a jeep drive up to Ghandruk village and then trek to Tadapani. The drive will be quite exciting because the roads are bumpy and rugged. On this trek, we are completely skipping the roads and trek from Tadapani, Bayeli Kharka, Swanta Khopra Danda, Swanta, Ghorepani to Ulleri will be proper trekking routes. From Ulleri we will drive back to Pokhara Instead of walking by the roadside.

If you are looking a complete trek package which starts from Kathmandu and ends at Kathmandu then we have another long trip package follow here (Khopra Danda Trekking ) To arrange the Short Khopra danda trek permits we need one working day. If you are in a group and looking for a better price and service we request you to book in advance. Khopra danda trek can be organized all around the year but during the mid-winter, if there will be heavy snowfall weather then we will not organize the trip.
