Trekking in Nepal is the treasury experience to explore the natural beauty and cultural values. Among the trekking destinations Annapurna region is one of the popular destinations in the world. In Annapurna region Khopra trek is a newly opened and hidden treasure. Khopra trek avoids the other crowded trekking routes in Annapurna region. From the Khopra ridge we can get the stunning view of mountains rather than Poon hill. This route is exciting for peace loving trekkers. During the trek we can get the stunning views of Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Machhapuchhre, Mt. Nilgiri, Mt.Manaslu and other snow capped peaks. 

Trekking in Nepal is a delightful experience to explore the untouched nature and culture. Khopra trek is also the blend of majestic views and culture. During the trek we walk through Ghandruk village which is very important for the local culture of Gurung community. In the heart of the Annapurna region we can get  all the elements of classic Nepal trekking such as cultural villages, wildlives, and landscape from subtropical vegetation to alpine grasslands.

Khopra trek also starts as other treks. We start our trekking from Kathmandu and drive to Nayapul. We walk through Ghandruk, Tatopani, Bayeli Kharka, Chistibung and then Khopra ridge at 3,880 m elevation. After enjoying the amazing views we trek back all the way to Ghorepani and ascend to Poon hill then trek through Hile. On the last day of our trek we walk for 3 hours to get to Nayapul and drive to Pokhara.

More Information

Meals:
When you travel to the new place for your holiday, food is the most  concerned part of travel. While, traveling with Yarsa treks, you can experience the delightful cuisine of typical Nepali food, continental food, Italian food, Chinese food and different international cuisines. You will be suggested by your guide for good food during your trip. During the trek do not order many dishes and waste food as they have to cater to more trekkers before they run off stock. It is very hard and takes a week or more for caravan and porters to bring the food in these places. You will take lunch in route side, breakfast and dinner will be arranged in the same lodge/Tea house.

Drinking Water:
During the trek you can get the bottled water but it is hard to dispose plastic and it will be the big problem for environment. We will provide purified mineral water during trek. In tea houses you can get bottled water and mineral water in additional cost. It will be better to drink mineral water rather than bottled water.

Accommodations:
We provide you best touristic hotel in Kathmandu/Pokhara with best location. During the trek tea house is main accommodation for trekkers. A tea house is combination of lodge and restaurant. In the tea house lodges are fairly basic, in some tea houses you can get separate room but in the high altitude rooms are spared with two beds with blankets and little additional furniture.  There will be large dining room where you can get the warmth by Bukhara stove. In the tea houses there will be solar electricity but these days most of the tea houses have electricity for charging camera, mobile phones and other small appliances.

Things to take:
This is very active trip we can’t stay in same place. You can take very light and necessary things. You will get a porter who  will carry 30 kg which means 2 trekkers=1 porter. Porters are allowed to carry 30 kg of your stuff. Porters will carry your necessary stuff in a duffel bag.

Altitude Map & Route Map:
Yarsa Treks will provide you complete route map and altitude map. At the end of the trip we will provide you Yarsa Treks T-shirt for the memory of trekking with us.

Health & Fitness:
These treks are some of moderate and some of strenuous type.Passionate trekkers should have ability to walk for 4-7 hours a day. Trekking to the high altitude is more challenging than the low altitude. To complete the trip we should have good health, average physical fitness, passion, confidence, determination and positive attitude. If you have past hiking experience or exercising habits it will be the better for your trek. If you have pre-existing health problems such as lungs, heart and other diseases, it is better to consult with your doctor or inform Yarsa treks before booking the trip.

Suitable Time to Trek:
For trekking to the high altitude we should concern about the weather condition. Autumn (Sept-Nov) and Spring (March-May) are the best seasons for trekking in Himalayas. Trekking in Summer and Monsoon (June-Aug) is affected by rain. You can also trek in winter but temperatures could be  harsher for most trekkers.

Important Notes:
If you’re confused to pack up your necessary things just see in the check list tab. Bring light and necessary things. You will need medium size bag to carry your daily usable stuff. The weather is subject to change in high altitude so layered clothing is recommended throughout the trek.
