Khopra Trek is a community trek in the western region of Nepal, bound up by the Annapurna Conservation Area Project. The trail is less trafficked and the scenery that the trek offers are outstanding. The bio-diversity, snowcapped Himalayan range of the Annapurna and the spiritual surroundings are seen breathtaking.
