Best Time To Trek Khopra Danda

The weather is the crucial factor to consider for the Khopra Trek. Trekking to Khopra is possible throughout the year, but it is easier in autumn and spring when the skies are clear, and there is no rain.

Trek during the winters gets challenging due to cold and snow, while summer coincides with monsoon making the trail wet and slippery. But again, adventurous trekkers find these challenges fascinating.

Friendship World Treks conducts treks to Khopra Danda throughout the year. 

In brief, here is the detailed weather information at the high altitudes of the Khopra Danda Trek regions.

March-May (Spring)

Khopra trek in spring (March-May) is not only easier, but the views are mind-blowing as well. In this season, the climate is mild, the rainfall is low, and the trekking conditions are perfect. The mean daily temperature in the high altitudes is between 5°C to 15 °C. Lower regions are warmer, making the trek pleasant for all nature lovers. The trekking season begins after March in the spring.

By April, along the trek routes, you will get to enjoy red, pink, and white rhododendron flowers. The temperature starts rising from mid-March up to mid-May. The cool temperatures and clear skies provide fantastic views of mountains, valleys, villages, and fields.

June – August (Summer)

June to August is summer in Nepal, and therefore the temperatures are quite high in the trekking regions. However, summer in Nepal coincides with the monsoon, and trek paths can be wet and slippery. Monsoon generally begins around the end of June and continues up to the second week of August.

The summer day temperatures at high elevations range from 15°C to 25°C. The night temperatures range from 5°C to 15°C. Summer mornings are usually clear, clouds form in the afternoon and disappear at night.

Though the rain may cause the paths to be slippery, the plants get much-needed rain during this season and bloom- providing green cover to the mountain vegetation.

September – November (Autumn)

Autumn (September, October, November), like spring, is a great season for the Khopra Danda trek. Autumn provides moderate temperatures, mild wind, clear skies, and low rainfall – conditions favorable for a successful trek. Clear skies also provide fantastic star views at night.

Monsoons will be over by early September, and autumn days in trekking regions are mild to warm. Daytime temperatures can reach up to 20°C in high altitudes, the nights are colder at around 5°C. The greens that grew during the monsoon fade to golden/amber providing a spectacular contrast against the crystal blue skies.

The environment is clean, the grains are ripening in the fields, and the lowlands are lush. Nepal’s biggest festivals – Dashain & Tihar – also fall during this season, adding a festive mood to your trekking.

December – February (Winter)

Winter (December – February) Khopra Danda treks are less popular than spring or autumn treks. The trekking regions can be cold during the winter, but this excites adventurous trekkers. The temperature in the trekking regions can be as low as –5 °C. 

The coldest time is from December through early February. After late February, the temperatures start rising.

Despite being cold, the winter skies are usually very clear, and mountain views are at their best – with snow caps. The trails are the least busy. Winter treks might not be favorable for new trekkers, but experienced trekkers can complete this trek in winter – without any problems.

The weather in the Himalayas is unpredictable and changes quickly.

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements

Khopra Trek is an easy-grade trek in the Annapurna region. The hiking lasts for about 4 to 5 hrs a day, taking regular breaks to capture the stunning mountain views. Trek routes to Khopra Danda are not very steep but ascend and descend fairly.

Trekkers who can hike 4 to 5 hours a day at a decent pace with a light day pack can complete this trek. Trekking at higher altitudes is physically demanding.

To complete this 7-day Khopra Danda trek, you should be in good health with normal physical fitness and strong determination. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood disease should inform us before booking the trek.

Trekking in group /single

We organize a group as well as private treks. The bigger your trek group is, the more discounts you can get. However, there are no group discounts available for groups Friendship World Treks assembles. We can handle all group sizes, and for a group with 12 or more trekkers, we will assign one additional assistant guide. For every two trekkers, we assign one porter.

A typical day in Khopra Danda

Each day provides a unique trekking experience – new terrain, different vegetation, typical villages, humongous mountains, and a chance to interact with the local people.

Our expert guides/Sherpas will accompany you throughout the trek and provide you with information about the places you will be visiting.

The day starts with an early morning cup of tea. After breakfast, we set off on the day’s walk at around 7 am to 8 am, depending on the duration and nature of that day’s walk. After trekking for 3 to 4 hours, we will be having lunch around midday. We will rest for one hour after lunch and then continue our trek.

The afternoon walk is generally shorter and lasts 2 to 3 hours. After reaching our overnight lodge, we take extra dietary snacks. Before the night sets in, you will have plenty of time to explore the destination for the day. We serve dinner between 6 to 7 pm.

After dinner, you will have time to socialize. Your trek leader (guide) will let you know about the plans for the next day. Then, before going to bed, you can enjoy yourself reading books, playing cards, monopoly, or watching mountaineering documentaries. Some of our guests also utilize this time to learn common Nepali words from our crew.

Communication during the trek

During your Khopra Trek, you can use internet service at lodges/tea houses for an extra service charge. Once you reach high destinations, we will communicate through phones. Friendship World Treks will be in contact with each trek group via trek guide at least once a day.

Depending on the mobile network you use, you may get cell phone signals, but at high altitudes, the signals may not be strong enough. You can, however, choose to buy a local sim in Kathmandu.

Wi-Fi is available at lodging places and comes with an extra service charge.

Battery recharge, water on trekking

Throughout the lodges at Khopra Trek regions, you can recharge your camera and cell batteries for an extra cost. 

Packed mineral water is available at lodges or en-route shops, or you can fill your water bottle with boiled water at an extra cost. If you require Friendship World Treks can provide water purification pills as well.

Please do not drink water from the rivers, taps, or wells in the trekking region because the water might not be drinkable.

Extra personal expenses

All of our valuable clients need to bring personal spending money to cover various costs.

Meals and accommodations before and after the trek in Kathmandu are up to our clients themselves. Similarly, you will need money for lunch and dinner in Pokhara, visa application, travel insurance policy purchase, beverages, snacks, hot (tea/coffee) drinks, cold drinks, alcoholic drinks, tipping crews, souvenirs, and so on.

We recommend bringing cash (major currencies) and exchanging them for Rupees in Kathmandu. Trekking regions only accept Nepali currency. 

Khopra Trek Travel insurance

This trip grade is moderate with a low risk of high altitude sickness. However, this mountain journey is not a regular visit, so you need to be prepared for unforeseen events like injury, illness, flood, landslides, etc.

Travel insurance is compulsory. All trekkers must provide a copy of their comprehensive travel insurance policy certificate to Friendship World Treks. The policy must cover medical and emergency repatriation – including helicopter rescue and evacuation expenses at high altitudes.

We can recommend insurance companies based on our client’s experience, but we do not sell insurance. We request our valuable clients to send their detailed insurance information once they book trekking. We will use these documents for quick and effective rescue in emergencies.

Please call your insurance provider and ask them if the insurance policy covers helicopter rescue along with medical expenses at elevations up to 4,000m. Do not depend on what the insurance companies say on their website.
