The Government of Nepal has announced an issue for the flight operation to Lukla. Most of the flights to Lukla will commence from Ramechhap until further notice to avoid the heavy traffic congestion in Kathmandu airport. The airport in Ramechhap is located 130km from Kathmandu (approximately 3-4 hours drive).
This trek is a fantastic choice if you’re searching for the ultimate week-long trek, a little off-the-beaten-path even with stunning views. This blends the best of what Nepal has to deliver: stunning views of the mountains, rural villages, and thick rice fields, sinking into the valley. The best thing is that few people are aware of it. “Khopra Ridge Community Trek”
The route meets a local trail that leads you north of Ghorepani down into the valley until climbing up another hill, known as “Khopra Ridge.” It is one of the best short excursions in Nepal undeniably.
To plan your trek to Khopra Danda, contact Mountain Hike Nepal will arrange this for you. You will have an active licensed guide, a well designed about the itinerary, and the freedom to travel at your own speed throughout the trek.
