This spectacular adventure treks through the Annapurna foothills to the wild and remote Kopra Ridge, one of the best vantage points in the Himalaya. We stay in newly constructed lodges by the local community whose profits benefit local schools and village projects.
From Nayapul we ascend terraced hillsides to Upper Ghandruk, enjoying fine views of the Annapurna Mountains. At Tadapani we leave the popular main trail and for the next week head through remote alpine terrain to Bayeli, before ascending to Kopra. Here we view the lofty peaks of Nilgiri, Annapurna I, and Annapurna South. Dhaulagiri dominates the western skyline across the deepest gorge in the world, the Kali Ghandaki.
Our return route descends through open alpine pastures, oak forest and rhododendrons to Swanta. We rejoin the main trail to unwind beside Lake Phewa in lovely Pokhara.
