Trek to Khopra danda: Let your soul be at peace

Khopra danda is in Paudwar, Myagdi, a village where I was born. I have been there quite often, because the majestic morning view of different Mountains and greenery hills calls me time and again.

Early morning when I got out from my room sun rays had just kissed the majestic Dhaulagiri range, Mt. Nilgiri and Annapurna, which were so close that I felt I could hug them. I felt as if I was in heaven. The sky was clear which made the view even better. We could see Andhaglachhi (world’s deepest gorge), Ghorepani and many other villages. Furthermore, grazing of Sheep and Yaks made the landscape even more attractive. After spending some unforgettable memories, we returned back to Paudwar village.
