Words cannot convey my immense gratitude and appreciation for the surprise birthday party.I thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity. The singing to me has so joy-filled and heartfelt that i almost cried. I can see all of your faces as you clapped, smiled and sang me a song in your native language … What a beautiful gift.
Volunteering in october 2015
Some weeks after the earthquake in Nepal we decided to go for volunteering to give time and energy for helping people there. With Himalayan Glacier Trekking we found a very good and reliable partner for this venture. They organized the whole setting so that we could be focused on our work and on our contact to the people.
Our work area was a school construction site in Ashrang 5, which is near Gorkha and was the epicentre of the earthquake.
Nothing but great things to say about our experience with the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra through Himalayan Glacier tour!! Lina Patel got right away what we wanted to achieve during our trip and began helping us to develop a workable plan. She was focused, resourceful, and upbeat, offering great advice at critical junctures to come up with a plan that met our needs and maximized both our time and convenience. She went the extra mile to ensure that we had a great trip, checked in frequently to find out how things were going and made sure everything was in working order; from our passports, to visas, to our flights. We felt very pampered and we were!
We were happy to do Gosaikunda trek with Ashish and Kumar.
Despite the difficulty of the situation, we experienced something very beautiful. Ashish took care of us like a father.
Attentive, caring , courteous , he made us discover nepal, explained the life changes since our first visit in 2003, always smiling, always respectful.
It was a beautiful moment of sharing with the people we met also .
Congratulations to your team.
We hope to return next year to the base camp of Everest .
In the meantime, we thank you for everything : the organization of the trek, the dinner at the Ship , availability of your team and wish you a good continuation .
Thank you to excuse my so bad English.

Our family was very happy with all the efforts made by Himalayan Glacier to make our trip such a wonderful experience.
We had an excellent mountain guide- Suresh, who always made sure we were safe and with no worries. He took care of all practicalities and we didn´t have to worry about anything! Wonderful way of having a true holiday! He gave us good tips on what to eat/drink and what to avoid- how to dress and he planned our days in the mountain to make the best of the day. We could be quite flexible since it was only our family and Suresh made sure we walked slowly when going up while letting our teenagers run when going down or when walking in lower altitudes. He made it all seem so easy!! Suresh is a true asset for Himalayan Glacier and I wish him all the best for the future.
Om Namah Shivay to everybody. Last month to day we completed our Kailash Yatra with a unique experience of Helicopter.What I experienced was:I was close to a his adobe according to scripture where “We are nobody, because he is everything, because we are within him” I mean Lord SHIVA.I experienced that what a human being can achieve with Faith and Determination. Because it was these two elements with OM NAMAH SHIVAY drove Yatris thru barren mountain range in cold and low oxygen climate.It was amazing to experience that Nature is mightier than man though we were lucky and blessed that the weather during 3 days of “KORA” was friendly and all 20 of us made thru. FYI I heard that a good number of Yatris from Florida Group (led by Roshni Patel) a week after us could not make it.I will be really thankful to Lina and Himalayan Glacier for planning smooth transition from 4000 feet in Kathmandu to 19,500 at Dolma La. I am also grateful to a team of Sherpas who’s sincere and skillful support made everything possible.
