Best Time for Khopra Ridge Trek

The Khopra ridge trek is doable all around the year. However, Autumn (from mid-September till mid-December) and spring (from the beginning of March until May end) are the best time. The weather is mostly clear, and all the Mountains are visible this month.

You trek in green jungles with the best temperature in Autumn, as the temperatures are not hot and not too cold just after the monsoon. The weather is a little foggy in spring. However, the mountains are visible, the temperature is good, and the Jungles are colorful with Rhododendron flowers blooming.

The nights are chilly & cold (between -20 C to 5C), but the days are sunny and hot (between 10C to 30C). The mornings are usually clear, with clouds building up during the afternoon & disappearing at night.

    Khopra Ridge Trek in Nepal

    I was recommended Outfitter Himalaya by a friend who had trekked with them a month before my trip. I exchanged numerous emails with Arjun to gather the information I needed and book the appropriate trek for my sister and me to do on our visit to Nepal.

    We were greeted at the airport and given our tickets for our connecting flight from Kathmandu onward. When we arrived in Pokhara, a taxi took us to our hotel, and we were able to check-in. We then went to wander around Pokhara. At 5 pm, our guide met us at the hotel to go over the trek and agree on a start time for the next day.

    Our guide was Suraj, and he was an absolute pleasure to hike with. He was able to answer our questions along the way, provided us with additional information we didn't know to ask about, and after two days, I can honestly say it was like hiking with a new friend.

    We cruised through the trek and arrived early each day at the endpoint which allowed us to get the best rooms (with wonderful views) and spend more time relaxing and enjoying those views. The guide recommended things to do, made sure we weren't hungry, and hung out with us like longtime friends. I would recommend you go with Outfitter Himalaya.

    After chatting with others along the trail, I didn't get the sense that I over or underpaid for the service, and comparatively, it sounded like we were having a better experience than some others. Thanks!
