Mountain
Lake
Panoramic Views
Local People

Khopra Ridge is located away from the busier trails of Annapurna region but provides equally remarkable views of the Himalayas including Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, Fang and Nilgiri. Another attractions are the holy Kaire Lake, which requires a little wandering away from the Kopra Ridge. Our journey begins in Kathmandu with visits to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Next day, fly to Pokhara and drive to Syauli Bazaar to begin our trek. Leave the main trail after Tadapani and for the next few days walk along a remote trail while staying at the community tea-houses. This trek is suitable for those who wish to enjoy the grandeur of Mount Annapurna while also taking pleasure in the solace of a more remote trails. This trip is worthwhile as it completes with unique heritage, culture and breathtaking landscapes.
