The Kopra Ridge, locally known as Khopra, is located away from the busier trails of Annapurna region but provides equally remarkable views of the Himalayas including Mount Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, Fang and Nilgiri. Another attraction of our trek is the holy Kaire Lake, which requires a little wandering away from the Khopra Ridge.
We leave the main trail after Tadapani and for the next few days, walk along a remote trail while staying at the community tea-houses. This trip is suitable for those who wish to enjoy the grandeur of Mt. Annapurna while also taking pleasure in the solace of a more remote trail. Complete with unique heritage, culture and breathtaking landscape, the trip will be well worth our time.
