About
The Khopra Ridge is located away from the busier trails of Annapurna region but provides equally remarkable views of the Himalayas including Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, Fang and Nilgiri. Another attraction of our trek is the holy Kaire Lake, which requires a little wandering away from the Kopra Ridge. We begin our trip in Kathmandu with visits to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Next day, we fly to Pokhara, drive to Syauli bazaar and begin trekking from there. We leave the main trail after Tadapani and for the next few days walk along a remote trail while staying at the community tea-houses. The 13-day trip is suitable for those who wish to enjoy the grandeur of Mt. Annapurna while also taking pleasure in the solace of a more remote trail. Complete with unique heritage, culture and breathtaking landscape, the trip will be well worth our time.

The Itinerary details is in brief due to word constraints. Please visit Himalayan Glacier website for more details.
Your safety is of paramount concern while traveling with Himalayan Glacier. Please note that your leader has the authority to amend or cancel any part of the itinerary if it is deemed necessary due to safety concerns. Every effort will be made to keep to the above itinerary; however, since this adventure entails travelling in remote mountainous regions, we cannot guarantee that we will not deviate from it. Weather conditions, health condition of a group member, unexpected natural disasters, etc., can all contribute to changes in the itinerary. The leader will try to ensure that the trip runs according to plan, but please be prepared to be flexible if required.
We will be staying at Hotel Yatri Suites & Spa in Kathmandu, Mt. Kailash Resort in Pokhara and teahouses during the trek. All accommodations are on twin-shared basis. Single supplement will be served on request and will cost an additional USD 290. Himalayan Glacier will arrange rooms with attached washrooms; however, teahouses in some places only have shared washing and toilet facilities. Also, note that single rooms are readily available in Kathmandu and the trekking regions at lower elevation but it might be difficult to find them at higher elevations.
Breakfast will be served in Kathmandu and Pokhara and all meals will be served during the trek. Breakfast will be taken in the same place we stay for the night. Similar arrangements can also be made for dinner. Lunch will be taken en route to the next destination. There will also be welcome and farewell dinners hosted by Himalayan Glacier.
Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) are the best months for this trip. Although this trip can be taken during winter, the cold temperature might not be suitable for everyone.
This is moderate trek suitable for passionate walkers with the ability to walk at least 5-7 hours a day with a light day pack. Walking in higher altitudes is more physically demanding than walking in lower altitudes; however, if we are in excellent health with average physical fitness and have a positive attitude, self confidence and strong determination, we can accomplish this trek successfully. Exercising and jogging regularly for some weeks prior to the trip is a good idea to enhance our strength and stability. Past hiking experience would be an asset but no technical skill is required for this trip. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases are required to consult their doctor before taking the trip. It is also advised that you inform Himalayan Glacier about the medical condition before booking the trek.

Khopra Ridge - fabulous trek!
Nov 2019
Trekking to Khopra Ridge was an amazing experience! It is a little off the beaten path, which we appreciated. Not crowded at all. We felt like we had the mountains to ourselves.

The trek was hard, make no mistake. But we expected that, and were delighted to challenge ourselves...and make it!

We had the very best guide in all of Nepal: Pradip. He was young (30) but very experienced. He started over a decade ago with Himalayan Glacier as a porter, and is an accomplished, professional guide. He spoke excellent English and his knowledge of the terrain, culture, mountains, flowers, trees...was exhaustive. We also had the very best porter in all Nepal: Arjun. Retired from the Nepal Army, he had travelled many of places as a UN peacekeeper. He had an infectious smile and was such a great encouragement. Slow, slow, you can do it!

We chose Himalayan Glacier very deliberately. We wanted a Nepalese owned company. Everyone at HG was super. They arranged every detail and everything went smoothly, from airport pick up to departure.

We would both recommend Himalayan Glacier. If you want a great Nepal experience, with a Nepalese company, they are the company for you!

Thank you Pradip. Thank you Arjun. Thank you HG.

Hope to return and see you all again.

Hello & Namaste from Himalayan Glacier! We are ecstatic to read that you both enjoyed every assistance throughout the trek, years and years of experience is what counts the most- our guides are expert and experienced- they know the nitty-gritty of the Himalayas, and also our porter offers exceptional service at every step of your journey. . And most importantly we take care of our clients from the very first contact until they are back home safe. Once again thank you for your beautiful words and comprehensive review. We hope to serve you in the near future.

Amazing Trek off the Beaten Trail
Apr 2019 • Friends
We recently did the Khopra Ridge Community Trek with Himalayan Glacier and were 100% satisfied with the level of care and support they provided. Our guide Babu was very experienced and we always felt safe and well looked after. This trek is recommended for anyone who wants to avoid the crowds and experience what trekking in Nepal was like decades ago. You will see local communities working the land and living a lifestyle that hasn't changed much in the last 100 years. We felt Himalayan Glacier looked after their staff, which was important for us, these guys work hard and deserve a decent wage. Babu and our porter, Sanket, also made us feel like we were a team, sharing in snacks, playing games, enjoying conversations. This wasn't always the case with other trekking groups I saw. It's the guides and porters who make your trekking experience a success or not, choose wisely.

The Best Way to See the Himalayas
If you want an undemanding trek off the beaten path, then you should choose the Khopra Ridge Community Trek with Himalayan Glacier. It is a refreshing alternative to the well-travelled Annapurna circuit. You won’t see very many other trekkers on this route. Often we were the only ones hiking along the trail. But you will see stunning views of the Himalayas without climbing exhausting heights.
I believe Himalayan Glacier has the best guides and porters because they treat their employees fairly. Babu, our guide, always looked after us and made sure we were safe. He proudly kept his first aid kit handy. I didn’t see guides from any other companies carrying first aid kits. He was also very friendly and lots of fun. He and our porter, Sanket, taught us the Nepali game called Ludo and we played it together during much of our downtime. Babu was flexible and adjusted our trek after we were unable to visit the Lake on Khopra Ridge. He and Sanket worked well as a team. Sometimes they worked together in the kitchens of our guest houses, ensuring the quality of our food.
I can’t recommend Himalayan Glacier enough because of the high standard of their guides and porters.
