The journey begins from Deurali, passing through Bayeli Kharka where the first community lodge is situated. From the lodge, the westward view is dominated by Mount Dhaulagiri at 8,167m, the seventh highest mountain in the world. Overnight accommodation is provided at a community teahouse lodge.
Kopra Ridge is one of the best and least known treks in the Annapurna region. It offers a classic Nepal trekking experience with a range of landscapes, villages, wildlife, and panoramic mountain views from forest to high alpine. The trek is located away from the busier trails of the Annapurna region, making it an off-the-beaten-path trail. 
The mountain views from Kopra Ridge are superb and include Mount Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, Fang, and Nilgiri. From Ghandruk, you can also see Mount Machhapuchhre (also known as Fishtail) and Mount Hiunchuli. The view from Kopra view point is closer and higher than the famous Poon Hill, offering more close-up views of the mountains. 
The route to Kopra Ridge leaves the main hiking trails before Poon Hill and ascends to the ridge and a community trekking lodge atop. For the first  the first two days of the trek, we will follow the popular trails of the Annapurna foothills, passing through terraced fields, rhododendron forests, and Gurung villages. After Tadapani, we will leave the main trail and walk along a remote trail for the next five days, staying at community lodges.
The high point of the trek will be Kopra Lodge, located at 3,660m/12,010ft. It is well worth getting up early before breakfast to see the sunrise across the panorama of Himalayan peaks. Yak herds are often seen in this area, and we can also spot small planes flying below us through the Kali Gandaki valley. The view from the lodge is rarely shared, as few trekkers have yet discovered Kopra Ridge.
On the descent from Kopra Ridge, we will pass through alpine pastures, oak and rhododendron forests, and reach Swanta village where we will stay in another community lodge. This village rarely sees trekkers and is an unspoiled example of local life. After a night’s stay here, we will continue our trek.

Detailed Itinerary

Day 01:
Early in the morning, we will take a tourist coach from Kathmandu to Pokhara. The drive will provide us with stunning views of the Himalayas, green hills, and dramatic river valleys. We will be staying overnight in Pokhara and preparing for the yoga trek. This includes detailed briefing, last-minute shopping, and other necessary activities.
Day 02:
We will travel from Pokhara to Kimche and then trek for two hours to Ghandruk, which is a charming Gurung village. Most of the houses here are of traditional design. We will have a short walk of just two hours, which will help us get used to the idea of trekking in Nepal. From the village, we will have fine views of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Machhapuchhre, and Hiunchuli. There is also a Gurung museum in the village, which is worth a visit in the afternoon. We will be staying overnight at a teahouse.
Day 03:
We will continue our trek upwards through Deorali and into the forest, then through Rhododendron forests and over a small pass to Tadapani. This will take us about 4 hours. We will stay overnight at a teahouse lodge.
Day 04:
After Tadapani, we will leave the main trail and walk for the next five days in a more remote area of the Annapurna region while staying at a network of community lodges. This is a lovely walk-through rhododendron and oak forests, following a trail originally used by villagers from Ghandruk to take their buffaloes, sheep, and goats to the higher pastures in the summer months. The trail starts to ascend above the tree line and follows a ridge. From the Upper Chistibung lodge, there is a steady ascent through alpine meadows and pastures. As we approach Kopra Ridge, we will be able to see the tip of Annapurna South. However, it is only on arrival at Kopra community lodge that the full panorama is revealed. We will be able to see Mount Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Fang, and Annapurna South. After lunch, it is well worth going for a short walk down Kopra Ridge to a viewpoint overlooking Kali Gandaki River far below in this deep valley. We will be staying overnight at a community teahouse lodge.
Day 05:
We will trek for four hours from Bayeli Kharka to Upper Chistibung. This section of the trail is on a grassy slope, traversing through pasture with a number of herder’s huts and dzo grazing (cross between a cow and a yak). Look out for the colorful Danphe pheasant, the national bird of Nepal, as well as the Himalayan tahr (a kind of wild mountain goat) on the grassy ridge high above the trail. We will be staying overnight at a community teahouse lodge.
 Day 06: 
We will trek for about 3 hours from Upper Chistibung to Kopra Ridge, which is at an altitude of 3,660m/12,010ft. The trek will take us through alpine meadows and pastures, and as we approach Kopra Ridge, we will get to see the tip of Annapurna South. However, the full panorama of Mount Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Fang, and Annapurna South can only be seen when we reach Kopra community lodge. After having lunch, we can take a short walk down Kopra Ridge to a viewpoint that overlooks the Kali Gandaki River far below in the deep valley. We will stay overnight at a community teahouse lodge.
Day 07: 
This will be an exploration day, and we will organize a day walk from Kopra Ridge towards Kaire Lake. The views of Fang and the surrounding mountains from Kaire Lake are superb. It’s a long walk up to Kaire Lake, and it often takes up to eleven hours return from Kopra lodge. However, if you don’t want to walk all the way to the lake, we can organize a half-day walk from Kopra. We will stay overnight at a community teahouse lodge.
Day 08: 
We will trek for about 5 hours from Kopra Ridge to Swanta Village, which is at an altitude of 2,200m/7,220ft. It will take an hour of descent to get back down too Upper Chistibung community lodge, and then we will continue down to Swanta village. Along the way, we will get to see more views of Mount Dhaulagiri, which provides a lovely backdrop to the terraced fields and traditional houses in the nearby villages. We will stay overnight at a community teahouse lodge.
Day 09: 
We will trek for about 6 hours from Swanta Village to Ulleri, which is at an altitude of 2,050m/6,725ft. An hour or so after leaving Swanta village, we will join the main trail to Ghorepani, where there are more trekkers. This will make us appreciate the quieter days walking along the Kopra Ridge. We have already passed through this trail at the beginning of our trek. After Ghorepani, we will descend through the rhododendron forest to Ulleri, where we will stay in a teahouse for the night.
Day 10:
We will trek for about 5 hours from Ulleri to Naya Pull. Initially, we will follow a steep stone stair trail, which later becomes a gentle trail. From Naya Pull, we will take private transport to Pokhara, which will take about 1.5 hours. We will stay overnight in Pokhara.

  • A YOGA MAT BAG: for carrying your mat around without it losing shape.
  • A WATER BOTTLE (you will get thirsty during your sequence and it’s essential to stay hydrated), ideal for keeping your supply of fresh water or even lemon water on hand.
  • A YOGA TOWEL: no matter the type of yoga you practice or how peaceful it looks from afar, yoga is still a workout, and I can promise you will sweat, especially if you sign up for Hot Yoga.
  •  SUNSCREEN AND LIP GUARD 30 SPF + DAY PACK – medium-sized, comfortable
  •  backpack with a waist strap or padded waist belt.
  • SUNGLASSES – some people prefer not to wear sunglasses while trekking, in this case, a good sunhat to keep your face and eyes shaded. If walking through snow, very dark sunglasses or snow goggles are a must take along with you.
  • PLASTIC BAGS – small plastic bags to separate items in the trekking sack and to keep clean clothes away from dirty clothes as well as protect from damp conditions.
  • MONEY BELT – for security on the trail and around town
  • TORCH – headlamp is the best as it leaves hands free.
  • PERSONAL MEDICAL KIT – band-aid, antiseptic, blister plasters, Imodium, bandage, painkillers, insect repellent, throat lozenges, cold medicine, knee/ankle supports, muscle rub like Deep Heat, Move or Tiger Balm, personal medication.
  • CAMERA – with charger and spare batteries • 
  • GAMES – playing cards, travel games, book (e-book reader takes much less space)
  • TREKKING TROUSERS – lightweight, quick-drying long trousers and shorts. In winter months warm and thick trekking pants are required
  • Track Pants – for teahouse wear after trekking.
  • TOPS – a few lightweight, quick drying long sleeved tops and T-shirts
  • HAT, SCARF & GLOVES – Wool or fleece beanie’ or balaclava for nights and cold days. During the winter you will need to sleep in a hat. Sunhat with wide brim to protect face and neck from sun rays during the day.
