The ‘Khopra Ridge Trek’ is a newly opened sustainable community lodge based trip in the Annapurna region. It was camping style trek in the past years.

Dhaulagiri I, II, III, IV, Nilgiri, Bhahra Shikhar, and South Annapurna etc. It is classic trekking in Nepal including pastoral villages, paddy fields, jungles, wildlife, yaks and panoramic Himalayan views.
