Himalayan Rescue Association (HRA)


The Himalayan Rescue Association (HRA) is a voluntary non-profit organization formed in 1973 with an objective to reduce casualties in the Nepal Himalayas, especially keeping in view the increasing number of Nepalese and foreigners who trek up into the remote wilderness. One of the most important task of the HRA is to try to prevent deaths from Acute Mountain Sickness that confronts foreign trekkers.
