It is not easy to start describing in few notes the fantastic trip we had around the Himalayas covering 4 different countries/territories and which you organised tailor-made impeccably to the last detail!
When we decided to embark on this trip, I searched in the Internet for a good local travel agency to prepare this trip for us. I always organize my trips in this way, on the many journeys we have done so far around the globe and will continue to do so. Local agents are far better in comparison with Western only based agencies, which are mere intermediaries. Local agencies have better knowledge of the situation, give much better on the spot support if needed, and above all we can get a better deal. After some search in early 2011 immediately Himalayans Glaciers appeared the one for sure to choose, and am glad I made this decision!
Thank you Narayan for having put together this journey for us, which I will try to summarize below. Will no doubt recommend your company to my friends who intend to visit this part of the world!

Overall I am extremely pleased with my trip! I had an amazing time. The professionalism of the staff at Himalayan Glacier Trekking is exceptional. Sneha was very helpful before, during, and after booking the tour. All of my questions were answered in a timely manner. Actually, that is one of the things I’m most impressed with — the quick email responses especially given the time difference! She knew that I would be traveling alone and, prior to my trip, helped put me at ease by providing me with the name and photo of the guide with whom I would be traveling. It was fulfilling requests like that that really demonstrated Himalayan Glacier Trekking’s high quality customer service.
