Oct 22, 6.00 p.m.: After the first successful group of Khopra Ridge earlier this October, the second group to Khopra Ridge has started their journey from Pokhra to Khimchee on Oct 22. They will start trekking from Khimchee.

“Weather looks clear and promising for the next 10 days,” reports Trek Leader Diptarka Gupta. This means trekkers in this second group are likely to witness grand mountain views in the coming days.

The first group to Khopra Ridge was stunned to witness such views during their trek.

“They were able to make it till the Khayer Lake at 15,710 ft. And they were quite taken aback by the mountain views they witnessed. They were not expecting the views to be so grand, ” shares Debadrita Ghosh, Experience Coordinator for the Khopra Ridge trek.

Khopra Ridge is an off beat ridge trek in Nepal which takes you close to 22 big mountains. This includes the glorious view of Mt. Machapuchare, Mt. Dhaulagiri is right in front of you and you see the Annapurna Massif at an arm’s distance.

To top it, you trek to a hidden high-altitude lake—the Khayer Lake, which is nestled at 15,710 ft in the big mountains.

The experience of trekking on this off-beat trail, away from the crowds of Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Base Camp, is weaving incredible memories for trekkers wanting to trek in Nepal.
