  • Explore a lesstrod, remote mountain trek in the stunning Annapurna Region

Are you looking for a unique and off-the-beaten-path Himalayan trek? Join us for this 13-day Khopra Ridge community trek in the Annapurna Region. This trip is suitable for those who wish to enjoy the grandeur of Mount Annapurna while also taking pleasure in the solace of a more remote trail. Complete with a unique heritage, culture, and breathtaking landscapes, the trip will be well worth your time!

The Khopra Ridge is located away from the busier trails of the 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. The 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. Before heading back to Kathmandu, we'll see the top sites of Pokhara.

Ken's review for another Himalayan Glacier Adventure and Travel Company tour
“We recently utilized Himalayan Glacier Trekking for a Mt. Kilimanjaro hike and summit. There were 9 in our party - a mix of men, women, young and "not so young". We hiked the Lemosho route, an 8-day hike. The experience was amazing. Our guide Paul, and his assistant guides Fredy, Paul, Orio and the others were all great! They were very attentive to our needs, engaging, friendly, spoke great English, and were always there to help or assist us in any way.Our meals were very good, and consisted of eggs, sausage, oatmeal, and toast for breakfast, various sandwiches, soups, and fruits for lunch, and chicken, pastas and vegetables for dinner. The staff did a great job of preparing and serving each meal - we did not go hungry!The overall hike and trip was amazing. The guides were especially helpful on the summit day, when several of our party needed to shed our backpacks to continue climbing. The guys were right there to grab the packs and keep helping us up. They, and we, were successful, with all of our party reaching the summit.This is the second trip i have taken with HGT, having also used them for an Everest Base Camp hike a couple of years ago. i highly recommend this very professional and friendly, customer-centric outfitter for your hiking trip to Kilimanjaro (or the Himalayas). You will not be disappointed with them!”

Stephan's review for another Himalayan Glacier Adventure and Travel Company tour
“Me and my friend wanted to trek in the Everest region for quite a while and it was Rayuna, our trip planner who answered all our questions prior the trip to get all our doubts cleared. Right from the start till the time we got back from the mountains, we were treated in the best way that I can ever remember. Suresh our guide led us throughout with his long years of experience and expertise. You guys are simply the best and we will surely not hesitate to recommend you people to all our friends.”

Lina's review for another Himalayan Glacier Adventure and Travel Company tour
“Climbing the Kilimanjaro was my first addition to my bucket list, and I finally ticked it off. The journey to its top and back was extraordinary. That feeling of accomplishment is something I will forever cherish. Himalayan Glacier team did a great job in coordinating the trip perfectly.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.

     

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.
