Join us on this 11-day Khopra Ridge trek, a great alternative to the popular and crowded Ghorepani trek. Despite not being as popular as the Ghorepani trek, this trek nevertheless allows you to enjoy stunning views of the Himalayas while taking you through forests, highland pastures and small villages.

Drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara on the first day of the trek. You will reach the famous Gurung village of Ghandruk the next day and continue the journey uphill via Tadapani, Dobato and Chistibung. Reach Khopra Ridge on the sixth day of the trip. Travel to Khayer Lake the day after that and lose yourself in the glistening turquoise waters of the lake before heading down to Pokhara via Swanta, Ulleri and Nayapul.

This trip comes to an end in Kathmandu, where you will reach on the final day of the tour. For more details please go through the itinerary below.

Review for another Nepal Lion Tours and Treks Pvt Ltd tour
4 - Very Good
“Nice trek, with beautiful views! Quit hard with the snow, but the guide was a great help! It was really good, distances per day was enough if you never do treks, well balanced. But a pity we didn’t see much from ghandruk, we hadn’t the time to look around because we had to go to the bus. And there was said that ghandruk was beautiful to walm around and see the culture, so that was a pity. But overall really well balanced and Nice trip!! With a kind and helpfull guide.”
Gavin's review for another Nepal Lion Tours and Treks Pvt Ltd tour
5 - Excellent
“This trek was a brilliant experience from start to finish. Our guide Rajendra was a complete legend, helping us ever step of the way. The trek is a good workout, walking throughout each day - but not too hard. You can do it if you are a beginner. If you're thinking about doing this - do it!”
