Annapurna Dhaulagiri Trek: Two Weeks Hiking Adventure
Annapurna Dhaulagiri Trek is locally known as Khopra Ridge Trekking. It is one of the best scenic two weeks of Nepal's finest tea house treks. No other hikes offer such a wide variety of spectacular scenery, peaceful isolation. The experience of so many diverse Himalayan cultures on a short walk. We stayed at community-run and managed lodges. Such Lodges' profits directly benefit local schools and people. The Khopra Ridge Trail passes through many traditional villages, oak and rhododendron forests, to high alpine pastures. Truly a magnificent view of the spectacular Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges.
Annapurna Dhaulagiri Trek is a community-based lodge trekking. It explores the less-trodden remote trails into the heart of the Annapurna.
Khopra Ridge Trek: Less Trodden Tail
On your arrival in bustling Kathmandu, We organize a local group dinner. We explore the sights and sounds of cultural sites in Kathmandu before we drive to Pokhara. We take a short drive to Nayapul, the trek starting point. We ascend slowly through the lust forest to Ghandruk and then to Tadapani. This is a traditional settlement of the Gurung ethnic group.
The tiny thatched roofed houses set among the narrow terraced fields next to stunning peaks amaze you. From Tadapani, we go off the beaten trail to Khopra Danda. We hike via the high alpine settlement of Bayeli and Dobato.
Khopra Danda and Khayer Lake
Khopra Ridge offers the most incredible views of the colossal ramparts of Dhaulagiri. It plunges into the misty depths of the Kali Gandaki. This is the deepest gorge in the world. The spectacular lofty peaks of Nilgiri, Annapurna I, and Annapurna South surround it. Finally, we do an exploration day hike to Khayer Lake. This is an ancient pilgrimage temple beneath the remarkable face of Annapurna Fang.
We descend with a different trail to Ghorepani via Swanta. We hike to the famous viewpoint of Pooh Hill on our way out to Pokhara. This route allows us to explore more. Thus, this Annapurna Dhaulagiri trek is a fantastic, isolated adventure journey in Nepal.
