The Khopra Ridge Community Trek is one of the best treks in Nepal. This trek offers all of the elements of a classic Nepal trekking including traditional villages, local lifestyle & culture, breath-taking mountain vistas, abundant flora-fauna and landscape ranging from tropical to high alpine.
The Khopra Ridge Trek is located away from the crowded trails of the Annapurna region but provides even better views of the Himalayas including Dhaulagiri, Tukuche Peak, Nilgiri, Annapurna South, Hiunchuli and Fishtail. During this trek, you have to stay a few nights in the community lodges which are run by community people. We begin our trip with interesting sightseeing in Kathmandu valley. Next day, you can drive or fly to Pokhara. And the next morning, the trek begins with a short drive to Nayapul. For the first two days of the trek you follow the busier trails of the Annapurna foothills passing through terraced fields, beautiful villages, rhododendron forests, little creeks and waterfalls. Then you leave the main trail after Tadapani and for the next few days trek through a remote trail and stay at the community lodges. You get to the high point at Khopra lodge at 3660m/12005ft where it is well worth getting up early in the morning to see the sunrise across the panorama of the Himalayan peaks.
This trek is ideal for those who wish to enjoy the beauty of Mt. Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges while also taking pleasure in the solace of a more remote trail. Complete with unique heritage, local culture and breathtaking mountain vistas, the trip will be well worth of your time.
