8 days Kopra Ridge trekking arranged by Alpine Eco Trek

We just completed 8 days of Kopra Ridge trekking arranged by Alpine Eco Trek. Ram, the owner of this company is an excellent gentleman, he did his job superbly with plenty of comical aspects, knowledge of the local area and hospitality skills that stretch above and beyond enact with a high level of professionalism. He makes the 8 days Kopra Ridge trek best with a hot cup of tea whenever where ever we want. We strongly recommend 8 days Kopra Ridge Trek to everyone because it is a great alternative to the more crowded trekking of Poon Hill, as it is more peaceful and tranquil than the bustling other treks which offer you a wider panorama of impressive Himalayan peaks. Thank you, Mr. Ram, Dhurba and Alpine Eco Trek team for your excellent arrangements for our lifetime memories, we definitely come back again to enjoy your services and would like to recommend this small but full of excitements Company for everyone.
