Ranking among the best short treks, the Khopra Ridge Trek is one of the most beautiful treks in the country. Containing all of the elements of a classic trekking route like excursing to ethnic villages, encountering wildlife, panoramic views of the mountains and a beautiful landscape adorned with alpine forests and lush vegetation, the Khopra Ridge Trek is brimming with natural beauties. With an off-the-beaten-paths trekking trail in the Annapurna Region, the Khopra Ridge Trek presents remarkable views of Himalayan peaks like Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South and Nilgiri among various others. Traversing to the Kaire Lake is a major highlight of the Khopra Ridge trekking that allows you to have a closer look at the sapphire waters of the winsome lake like never before. Beguiling views of Mount Machhapuchhre and Mount Hiunchuli can also be seen from the village of Ghandruk. Draping down from the Annapurna South towards the world’s deepest gorge, Khopra Ridge Trek offers a stunning balcony to observe the Himalayas. The route to Khopra Ridge leaves the main hiking trail before Poon Hill, ascending instead to the ridge and a community trekking lodge poised atop it.
