Khopra Ridge Trek

Duration: 2 Nights 3 Days

Khopra Ridge Trek takes you to the remote parts of Annapurna region and is popular for spectacular views of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, Nilgiri, and other peaks and mountains. Khaire Lake is another highlight of Khopra ridge trek. Leaving the main route from Tadapani, we will enter a more isolated area. Khopra Ridge Trek allows complete cultural experience while breath-taking views of mountains make this trek memorable. This package is also popular as Khair Lake Trek as we will visit the holy lake of Khair where Hindus from far and wide make the pilgrimage each year. Bathing in Khair Lake is believed to liberate devotees from the vicious circle of life and death. Along with religious significance, Khair Lake is also famous for awe-inspiring views of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Fishtail and other peaks and mountains. Khopra is the relatively new trekking destination in Annapurna Region that can be joined by people of all age group and fitness level. The trail passes through villages of Gurung, Magar, Brahmin and Chhetri ethnics and thus allows you to experience the diverse culture, art, and traditions which they have kept alive all these years. Khopra Trek provides an unforgettable memory of witnessing colorful festivals while you will visit ancient temples and gompas. This is one of the best alternative trekking routes in Annapurna that takes you through the least crowded area that is rich in biodiversity.
