From the city, the trekking journey continues on to the far-off settlements and villages of the region like the Syauli Bazaar, Dobato, and Chistibang among many. Although the Khopra Ridge Community Trek follows the same initial path as that of the famous ABC Trek, it diverts away from the main trail and instead meanders through the hidden valley into enveloped areas of the region. Because of this, the trekking journey is also one of the best alternative options for people who are looking for a journey that isn’t as crowded as other Annapurna treks. Moreover, the Khopra Ridge Community Trek also has many highlights; trekkers visit the beautiful Lake Kaire, situated above the Khopra Danda. Many trekkers even put forth the notion that the panoramic view of the Marsayangdi River valley and of the Annapurna Himalayas decorating the skyline of the river gorge is the most amazing view in the entire region.
