Khopra khayar lake trek at a glance


For multiple reasons, the Annapurna region is in the hearts of many people. Be it the poon hill, Ghorepani, Annapurna region is awe for many. Khorpa Danda Trek is one of those treks, which lets you see the unspoiled beauty of Annapurna, avoiding crowds of other mainstream treks in the region. Trekking to Khorpa danda will take you through the hidden paths to the places which were concealed from the tourists until recently.

The khorpa danda trail takes us through the small village settlements, terraced farming lands & welcoming friendly locals. En route, you will walk through rhododendron forest & green hills followed by the snow-capped Himalayan backdrop.  On reaching Khorpa danda savour your eyes to a mesmerizing view of mighty Himalayas. Perfect sunrise & sunset can be seen from this point.
