Khopra ridges and Mohore Danda Trek is an off-the-beaten trek in Nepal. In the past centuries, lofty summits had always inspired mankind to reach the sky or beyond it. Even at present, high mountains are the origin of imagination, creativity, and various forms of artwork. With a glimpse of countryside dominated by snow-covered mountaintops, an individual can acquire thrill, delight as well as peace of mind. Therefore, travel enthusiasts travel across remote and pristine regions comprising lush woodlands, rugged terrains, verdant valleys, gushing rivers, and native settlements to set their foot at the viewpoint from where they can rejoice in the exquisite mountain vistas. Such an experience is delivered by the Khopra Ridge and Mohare Danda trek. This trekking route is one of the best destinations in Nepal for those trekkers who seek serene trails to trek upon instead of crowded and exploited trails.

Mohore and Khopra Ridge trek is lately an unlocked trekking destination in the Annapurna Region, celebrated widely as an alternative to Ghorepani-Poonhill trekking positioned in the very region. Numerous teahouses, community lodges, and fairly easy trails make this trek blissful; enabling trekkers to relax and enjoy the surrounding landscapes. The trek progresses across the off-the-beaten path, often leading to remote villages, which allow the trekkers to experience genuine rural homestay hospitality. Along the trail, you’ll come across native settlements that feature cheese factories, mushroom farms, sacred forests and temples, a handmade paper production facility, a community nursery, yak and cow cross-breeding farms, and health posts equipped with advanced telemedicine. The very trek provides a window of opportunity to perceive the elements of rustic Nepalese villages situated in Western Nepal. Initiated by Ramon Magsaysay Award (often referred to as Nobel Prize of Asia) winner Mahabir Pun to attract tourists to his birthplace to encourage sustainable development via Eco-tourism, Khopra Ridge and Mohare Danda trek is based on the concept of community investment for the sustainable future. The villages in this region have made their investment in the accommodation services along the trail, and the revenue generated from them is re-invested back to the schools within the very villages.


Accompanied by the awe-inspiring vistas of snow-clad peaks, the trek commences from Pokhara. It traverses picturesque landscapes complemented with woodland of oak, rhododendron, and spruce, waterfalls, streams, and numerous species of flora and fauna. During this trek, you can take pleasure in this natural splendor. In addition, the trail passes through the settlements primarily inhabited by Poon Magars along with other ethnic tribes such as Gurung, Brahmins, Chetri, Kami, and Damai. This cultural diversity adds rich flavors to the trek. You can get acquainted with the culture and traditional lifestyle of the native communities. Besides the sublime panorama encompassing Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Massifs alongside Mt. Machhapuchhre, you can enjoy the best sunrise and sunset from both Mohare Danda (3,300m) and Khopra Ridge. If you have more time, you can explore holy Khair Lake, positioned at 4,600m asl.

The best period is the spring season (March-June) and autumn (September - December). An escapade that can be enjoyed with family or unaccompanied, this trek offers more than you have asked for! What are you waiting for?? Contact us right now and set off for this trek of the lifetime!!
