Kopra Ridge trek is one of the best treks in Nepal having all the features of a classic trekking in Nepal including villages, wildlife and panoramic Himalayan views. Khopra Danda ( Ridge) is new trekking route in Annapurna region ( the trekking was opened in past however it used to be organized only on camping style as there was not lodge/guest houses built before) and now there are some lodge/community houses where you will stay overnights on this trek, the nature is amazing up here on Khopra ridge, It is virtually a natural heaven and best alternative trek of Annapurna Base Camp as the Annapurna Base camp now is too popular and crowed in the best trekking season as well.
Kopra Ridge is located away from the busier trails of Annapurna region and you will stay at community lodges for the 4 nights and they are set up by the villagers and doing the Khopra ridge trek is directly contributing to the local economy and the views of Mount Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, Fang and Nilgiri are the best seen from the Khopra trail.
