The Annapurna region is a secret best destination for trekkers who love to trek with locals, and walk through the nature , it’s been long time now the Annapurna trekking discovered and also because of time and volume of trekkers others new trekking route have found with out crowded such as Khopa village trek.

General information:

The Khopra Trek in the Annapurna region is an ‘off the beaten track’ destination for trekkers who love to trek with locals and enjoy nature. It is much less frequented than the main Annapurna trekking routes and so you can enjoy the trails without the crowds. Here, the sacred peaks of Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Machapuchare and Mt.Dhaulagiri (8167 meters), glisten with snow year round and tower over ancient Rhododendron forests, Icy glaciers/rivers, and temperate jungles where leopard still roam. Trekkers stay in village communities – sometimes in people’s homes – so there’s time for real interaction with Nepalis people. We will eat with families, visit a village weaving workshop and  a cheese making project. The high point of our trek is a visit to sacred Khayer Lake (4500 m) surrounded with shrines, and with the peak of Annapurna towering above.

The Khopra trek has not been open very long and so it has so quite environment for trekkers who would love to be in an unspoiled area. This trip will provide you also the real face of Nepal and Nepalese life style surrounded by the Annapurna mountains all around. Safe Holiday Adventure are proud to offer this unique opportunity to you.
