Falling immediately south of the Great Himalayan trail Khopra Ridge trek falls in the subtropical region and experiences 4 seasons. Alike the other trails in the Annapurna region, this trek as well is entirely inhabited and by very fun loving communities who are yet to be influenced by business traits.

However, this trek has its own charm even if it combined with other famed routes like Ghorepani Poon hill or Annapurna Sanctuary.
