Khopra Ridge Trekking
Khopra (Kopra) ridge trekking is one of the most exotic and interesting trek routes in Annapurna region of Nepal. Khopra ridge is newly established as a tourist destination, the Kopra ridge is perhaps more stunning than Ghorepani Poon Hill (3210m) but Kopra ridge with visiting Poon Hill will be the fantastic trekking holiday in Nepal so our itinerary we generate accordingly. Khopra ridge is in the heart of Annapurna region but still remains rural and secret for the trekkers. There is no doubt that Khopra Ridge is one of the best short treks in Nepal. This trek contains all of the elements of a classic Nepal trekking experience including villages, wildlife, panoramic mountain views and range of landscape from forest to high alpine.
