Khopra Ridge trek is the best adventure trek It has in-depth information about each day of the trek, what to expect, and how you need to prepare for expertise have gone into this trekkers find that extremely useful.

The most unique trek overall and the most surprising fact is that it goes so much unnoticed. So, here I am penning down the points which shouldn’t be overlooked as the Khopra Ridge Trek is one of the unrevealed gems I could have ever found in the land of highest mountains in the world, Nepal.

The Khopra Ridge, a less busy trail, provides remarkable and spectacular views of the Himalayas including Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, Fang and Nilgiri. The holy Kaire Lake, a little away from the Kopra Ridge, another feature of this trek. The trip starts from Kathmandu with visits to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites to Pokhara on flight. A short drive from Pokhara to Syauli bazaar is made and the trekking starts from the same place. You leave the main trail after Tadapani and walk along a remote trail while staying at the community tea-houses. The trip will be well worth of your time with the grandeur of Mt. Annapurna, unique heritage, culture and breathtaking landscape. 

And also features stunning view of sunrise over the mountains from Khopra Ridge. The trail passes through beautiful villages of Gurung, Magar, Chhetri, and Brahmin communities, which allows trekkers to observe and experience the pure Nepali culture and lifestyle. The trek is an excellent way to make your children familiar with the joys of trekking and exchanging culture and experience with the local people.
