Khopra Danda (Ridge) Trek also known as Khayer Lake Trekking is one of the most impressively attractive untouched nature and freshly opened territory for trekking sport in Annapurna. This trek is seemly good for all opinioned trekkers. Parts of this trail are more strenuous while other parts are easier. The path goes through deeply lush thick pine, oak, rhododendron and bamboo forest with gorgeous vistas, journey through beautiful Magar, Gurung, Kami, Damai and Kshetri - Brahmin villages with its beautifully terraced farm lands. This Khopra Danda Trek can be done as a special combined tour and adventure hike up to Khayar Lake 4827m, the highest point, the most spectacular, picturesque and breath-taking views of snowcapped peaks and mesmerizing landscapes! On this trip you will have chances to observe real Nepali life styles (their culture, art of living and religion), stay together with the family at home stay, that's why you have chances to share experiences with the families, hiking in the lush pristine forest with great vistas and the best place being far away of crowd and hectic boring life.
Other thing about this trail is; very few tourist you see on the way, so it’s quiet and peace trail also. Mountains views are just awesome 180 degree from Dhaulagiri 8167m, Annapurna I 8091m, Manaslu 8163m etc. + green high hills, rhododendron forest and the southern green slopes with terraced farming lands. Khopra Trek or South of Annapurna region is one of Nepal’s last Himalayan jewels; a glittering array of panoramas, gigantic peaks and peaceful nature awaits the adventurous explorer. However, as magnificent as the mountains are, it is perhaps the people of Nepal that are its greatest asset. Khopra Danda trek is the diversity of ethno-culture, colorful festivals, temples and gompas, mixture settlement of friendly loving people. On this trip you will have chances to mix with those people and observe their lifestyle, culture and traditions. These things make this trip one of the finest.
End of October 2017: This year, our 10-days trekking adventure led us to the hills of Nangi above the famous gorge of Kali Gandaki. This trek is a cultural and natural highlight, off the beaten track and is also known as “community trek”. Every village we passed has its own character and we got a great insight into the rural life of the Magar people. I was impressed about the “No plastic” campaign in this area! Walking through the varied landscape was a pleasure, it might be even more beautiful in spring(blooming period of the Rhododendron). Pradip from Wilderness Excursion suggested us this trek and he hit the nail on the head!! It was a wonderful experience , we learned a lot and together with our guide and porter, Riddhi and Iman we had a lot of fun! They cared well for us. Pradip, a special thank to you for your professional organisation. Whenever I had a question, you had time. It was the second trek you organised for us and there will surely be a next one! Birgit and Hanni from Switzerland
