Khopra Ridge Hot Springs Trek- 10 Days is an off the beaten track trekking experience within the Annapurna Region. This trek takes you to very close to the Annapurna South and Dhaulagiri.  We start our trek with a scenic drive to a small village of Hile. Further on we trek through the village of Tikhedhunga, Ulleri and Ghorepani reaching the view point of Poon Hill. Poon Hill offers a magnificent panorama of peaks above 8000 m including Annapurna I and Dhaulagiri.  After Poon Hill, our trek deviates towards Khopra Ridge through the village of Swanta, where the trekking trail is relatively less crowded.  Once we reach Khopra Ridge, the views are stunning. From Khopra Ridge we trek through the village of Bayeli onward to Dobato. Next morning from Dobato we will do a sunrise hike to the Muldai View Point to explore the panoramic views this hidden view point offers. As we gradually descend we reach the village of Ghandruk renowned for its rich Gurung culture and incredible views of the Himalayan peaks. On our last day of hiking we reach the village of Jhinu, which also has an amazing natural hot springs where we will be taking a dip to relax our sore muscles. Khopra Ridge Hot Springs Trek offers less visited trails, amazing close up views of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and other Himalayan peaks, a rich culture, lush forests, natural hot springs and ultimately a memorable trekking experience in Nepal.
