I return recently from Nepal, were I did the program Island Peak Climbing with Gokyo &Everest Base Camp – 22 days, with Dorji as a guide and climbing guide Tenji in Chhunkung.
Your trip were excellent and all guides and porters have done an excellent work. Dorji and porters always pay attention in everything and were very professional. I can say that Dorji should be a climbing guide, because he were very good on climbing Island Peak.
I really hope that Himalyan Glacier continuos to do work in sense of give better conditions of work, better salaries and help porters and guides during low seasons, because guides and porters always do a excellent work with a smile in them faces. Never forget that porters and guides are the face of companies near costumers.
I am very glad to had Dorji as a guide and had the porters that he choose as my porters. They were very kindly and help me very much.
Thanks for everything.

I was wholehearted to go to Nepal to see the Himalayas of Nepal closely since I knew about them first. Once I had done trekking in 2005, my ambition amplified and I was determined to climb one of its peaks. Due to lack of climbing experience, I chose a little non-technical one, Imje Tse (Island Peak). I went Nepal again in November of 2009, four years after my first visit on “Destination Island Peak.”
“Although physically challenging, Imje Tse is not considered technically complicated, but weather and snow conditions can add sudden challenges and you will need to be prepared for all eventualities – including knowing how and when to use crampons, ice axe and rope techniques,” said Dendi at Himalayan Glacier Trekking. The climbing service provider, Himalayan Glacier Trekking managed experienced guides to handout some necessary skills and made me alert incase of unfavorable weather condition before flying to Lukla from Kathmandu.

It’s difficult to translate in words what we felt and what we saw when we were finally on the top of the Island Peak.
The day was absolutely fantastic – we were very lucky. We have reached the top of the Island Peak mountain at 09:00h in the morning and everything was just perfect. What sensational views! Everywhere we looked at we just could see big mountains. It’s amazing!
We would like to thank our climbing guide Mr. Pen Sherpa for his great professionalism. He has a great knowledge about these mountains.
We sincerely think that he is one of the best climbing guides we may find in Nepal. The two young sherpa that were with us were also very friendly and kind always worried with our well be and hydration. We only disposed of 2 weeks to be in Nepal and climb the Island Peak and Himalayan Glacier has an option that turned our wishes possible. What we did was very hard and atypical when climbing in Himalaya.
We would like to thank Himalayan Glacier Trekking for taking care of all the arrangement and for having understood our needs. Without their help our dream of climb a peak in Himalayan would have been impossible.
To climb Island Peak only in two weeks it’s important to be in a very good physical condition since you will have to walk 6-7hr in average per day. You don’t have time to acclimatize well. You have to do it wile you are walking and you will always sleep at high altitudes so it’s important to drink a lot of liquids and eat nice and energetic food. It’s very easy to loose the appetite at high altitudes.
For those people that like us don’t have much time to climb in Nepal, the good news are that there are agencies like Himalayan Glacier that can arrange a plan that fills your needs.

In this April’09 we decided to climb the Island Peak using the services of Himalayan Glacier. The acclimation, going to Everest Base Camp and Kala-Pathar, is a very nice trek and we were so lucky each day with weather. After used the Khangmala pass, we arrived to the Island Peak area and, after two days, we achieved the summit using the Base Camp and high camp (for a better acclimation). It was a sunny day but only us did the peak this morning! We were alone in front the Lothse wall! We came back to Luckla without any problem and still with good weather (a lot of mantras had been done!).
The support, help, and friendly and reasonable company of our guides, porters, and drivers was excellent in our trip. Specially thanks to Parkesh (trek-guide), Tiangzin (climbing-guide), and Chet (supervisor). I can highly recommend the Himalayan Glacier Trekking and staff for anyone who is planning to visit their country.

I’m back at home in Toowoomba Australia and enjoying the warm weather. I thought I should send you my thought about the trek and some pictures. I thought that as a whole the trek and climbing was very well organized and well paced. I was happy that we could arrange the times and dates to suit our group’s needs. In no particular order I’ll some mention some of the things I liked and some things I would change if doing it again.
