Additional Information

The Khopra trek typically involves 6-7 hours of daily walking. The first day’s trail lead from village to village in a flat, gradual uphill climb. This moderate-grade hike passes through a valley with open space, uphill ridge and rocky terrain. As you walk higher, your body will need more physical effort, and the altitude will make your pace feel slower and harder. However, if you stay healthy and have a positive attitude, you can make this trip the best success of your life. The trip is also worth for planning medium altitude soft first time trekking and hiking experience in the Himalaya attempting to do family holiday, solo to group trip. It is vital that participants with pre-existing medical problems or conditions make these known to Sherpa Brothers Trek at the time of booking.
