HOP has supported the Himalayan Rescue Association in a number of ways over the years, including installing solar panels and batteries at their outpost in Pheriche, delivering medical supplies to HRA headquarters, and most recently, funding the rebuilding of the medical outpost along the Annapurna circuit in Manang.

The Manang Medical clinic serves over 2,500 people per three-month season, 75% of whom are locals who have traveled to the area to make a living in tourism and have no support systems or medical care to fall back on. HOP is funding the complete rebuilding of the medical building which includes a new lab for the doctors to have more capacity to identify illness. The building is expected to be completed by May 2018.


  • HRA’s Manang Outpost

  • Trekkers and locals in need of medical care along the Annapurna Circuit, and throughout Nepal


  • Medical supplies


  • We provided $1,400 worth of medical supplies to HRA

  • We funded a new Medical outpost in Manang

Current Events

 The medical building is currently nearing completion. The skeleton of the building is up and now we make the final touches to the interior of the building to make sure it is furnished properly.

Future Goals

HOP plans to send representatives to Manang to follow-up on the construction process, and look for other ways that we can be of assistance to the Himalayan Rescue Association and Manang Medical Clinic. We intend to do everything in our power to support this organization that provides crucial medical services not only for trekkers, but also for locals who have no other access to medical care.
