Friendly and professional, our guide took us on the Khopra Danda trek where we have been lucky enough not to meet too many trekkers. We came back home with breathtaking pictures and lifelong memories of adventure and encounters. I would recommend Happyland Treks to those who want to trek carefree for an affordable price.
