Khopra Ridge is undoubtedly one of the best short treks in Nepal. This trekking includes all elements of a classic trek in Nepal: cozy villages, wildlife, panoramic views of the mountains and a very diverse landscape from forests to high alpine landscapes.
The Khopra Ridge trek follows less crowded trails in the Annapurna region and you`ll sleep a few nights in community lodges that are run by local villagers. During the trek you have wonderful views on Mount Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, Fang and Nilgiri and Mount Machhapuchhre (also known as the Fishtail) and Mount Hiunchuli.
