Khopra Ridge Trek is a tranquility and interesting family suitable trek in the heart of the Annapurna region. Annapurna is the most walked trail in Nepal, yet this trek remains mysterious for the trekkers. The secluded place hidden behind the massive Annapurna ranges is one of the most speculative vantage points of the region. The panoramic views it offers are beyond the expression of any imagination. The pattern of undulating ridges laid beyond the touching distance is a sort of a miracle. The trail to this track is mainly dominated by the rhododendron, which blooms in spring. Most of the trekking trails lead through the jungle with Bamboo trees, you will also see the water buffalo, different kinds of birds.
Khopra Ridge trek is one of the tourist less trekking destinations which is on the lap of Mount Annapurna south. There are fewer tea houses in this trekking destination and no roads at all. The trek starts either from Ghandruk or from Nayapul to Tikhedunga which leads to the famous short trekking destination Ghorepani Poonhill trek. This trek can be done in a week or within 10 days. We leave the main trail after Tadapani and for the next few days walk along a remote trail while staying at the community tea-houses. The 14-day trip is suitable for those who wish to enjoy the grandeur of Mt. Complete with unique heritage, culture, and breathtaking landscape, the trip will be well worth our time.
