The Khopra Ridge Trek

Beyond horizons…into paradise, Go about it cool & easy…don’t look back.


 

'Foraging into some of the most rugged & isolated territory on earth, between the Annapurna massif & the spectacular Dhaulagiri range'…fortune smiles on the brave…


One of the most ecstatic views of towering high snow capped peaks from Dhaulagiri-Annapurna to Manaslu. Wading out into the great outback through serene forest of rhododendron, oaks and firs as you listen to the rustling of leaves in the blurring mountain winds, hiking across rolling hills into vibrating rural villages kicking with hardy mountain life hereabouts; with hardly any trekkers venturing into this part of the planet. You become the ‘anointed of nature’ once you step into this earthy region.
 

Know before you Explore:

One of the most aloof and intangible treks in the north west of Annapurna region, although this massive Annapurna range is widely trekked, and is still the most sought-after trekking destinations in the Himalaya with its extensive varied flavor. Apart from the other popular routes, there are few hidden pockets in the Annapurna region, where the adventurous backpacker has seldom ventured. This trip certainly enables you to enjoy more of this less frequented area. Trekking in between the majestic giants of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna range of mountains in its solitude & peaceful surroundings amidst high alpine country in one of the most fabulous "off the beaten tracks" around the Annapurna region.

The scenery ranges from the fertile grandeur of the Pokhara Valley and its cycloramic views of Annapurna massif including the towering peak of Machhapuchare {the Fish Tail} and through the splendid rhododendron, hemlock and fir forest & then enters into the high alpine ridges of ‘Kopra’ (bowl) overlooking stupendous views of the surrounding magnificent landscapes including the massive bulk of Annapurna South, Vara Shikhar, Nilgiri's and the whole Dhaulagiri range.
