Annapurna Khopra Ridge Trek is the newly launched trekking trail in the Annapurna region. This trek offers a spectacular Himalayan view as well as it goes through several ancient villages where we can observe the different ethnic group people like Gurung, Magar, Brahmin, Chhetri & Dalits.

Following the trail at the Annapurna foothill, you would be trekking on paths that are ornamented with the blossoms of rhododendron flowers and ethnic Gurung settlements. The landscape of the region is like a portrait with the incorporation of an amazing Himalayan tapestry in the background. Trekking the Annapurna Khopra Ridge (Danda, in Nepali) Trek presents an absolutely beautiful experience which is sure to be carved into your memories for days to come.
