As the news of Nepal earthquake settles, 17 trekkers started their trek towards Khopra Ridge and Khayyar Lake in Nepal. They mark a seamless opening of the autumn season for this trek.
“Trekkers reported that their journey from Kathmandu to Pokhra was smooth. They did not notice any disruptions caused by the earthquake. Weather was also good when they started the trek. All trekkers are in high spirits and geared up for a successful trek,” shares Debadrita Ghosh, Experience Coordinator for the Khopra Ridge Trek.
Khopra Ridge is an off-beat Himalayan trek in Nepal that takes you close to 22 big mountains in the world—including Mt Dhaulagiri I (7th highest), Mt Annapurna I (10th highest), Annapurna massif, Mt. Macchapuchhare, Mt Nilgiri North and South, Mt Himchuli, and Mt Ganga Purna.
The trekkers are slated to see these mountains from the Khopra Ridge on Oct 14. Post which, they will climb to Khayyar Lake at 15,700 feet. They will return to Pokhra by Oct 16.
