Khopra Ridge Community Trek

By Himalayan Glacier Trekking - Private Day Tours
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.

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.

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.

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.
