Kathmandu Sightseeing , Annapurna Circuit Trek , Chitwan National Park, Pokhara and the Everest Flight

December 24, 2010

Regarding feedback for HGT, your Himalayan Glacier staff and you, Naba, bring together a special mix of being helpful, very knowledgeable and friendly! Your staff is very concerned about meeting your clients needs for a successful travel experience. My feedback is very positive. You offered services that were extremely helpful and you made sure that our trekking group was safe throughout the journey. For example, you contacted Prem our guide by phone regularly to see how everyone was doing. Trekking, as you know, is often challenging and difficult so we needed excellent guides who knew the trek and how to keep the trekkers spirits up while maintaining good health while we go over Thorong-La pass. HGT provided well trained staff to make sure we were safe at all times.

You helped me plan the trek and other side trips such as Chitwan National Park, Pohkara and the Everest Flight. All successful adventures. The cultural dinner you provided and the opportunity to meet different people in the HGT team was important and fun. The culture shock of visiting a new country was minimized. I learned quickly that I could trust your staff and the information you provided me while in Nepal.

An overview of the many good points about HGT services:
1. Being met at the airport and providing other ground transportation as needed
2. Meeting HGT staff and having questions answered when I first arrived in Nepal and throughout my visit
3. Bookings in good hotels that were safe and friendly was excellent
4. Providing highly trained trekking guides, Prem and Bairas
5. Experiencing cultural events through HGT
6. Knowing there were people at HGT I could call if I had a problem
7. Meeting the needs while maintaining safety of your HGT clients in my group was a priority
8. Providing equipment such as sleeping bags and down jackets, I loved the packing list you provided before leaving the USA
9. Trekking the Annapurna Circuit was a dream come true for me as well as seeing Mt Everest

My overall experience was excellent. Thank you and your staff for all you did to make my trip to Nepal an adventure I will always treasure. Stay in touch. I am already thinking about the Everest Base Camp, Bhutan and Tibet travel. Next time I will bring friends!

Take care! Again, many thanks! Wishing you all a Happy, Successful New Year in 2011!

Lhasa to Kathmandu overland tour via EBC and Kathmandu Sightseeing

July 29, 2010

Page and I want you to know just how much we enjoyed our trip through Tibet into Nepal. All of the arrangements you made for us were excellent.

When we left the train station in Lhasa, we saw our guide, Migmar holding up a sign with our name on it. From then until we left Migmar and our driver, Jong Dong. at the border in Zhangmu, we were in good hands. Jong Dong is an excellent driver and Migmar proved to be a walking encyclopedia on all things Tibet. Page and I both agree that the highlight of our entire trip was our visit to Everest Base Camp. We highly recommend that all of your guests spend a night in one of the tents at base camp. Sorry, but we can’t say the same about the hotel in Tingri.

The Hotel Courtyard in Kathmandu was just what we needed, a quite oasis in the center of bustling Thamel neighborhood. After eight days above 12,000 feet, the rich air was also just what we needed. Our tour of the City with Dr Krishna Kharel was exciting. I particularly enjoyed the Durbar Square area. The food and entertainment at our departure dinner was a rare treat.

Thank you and all of your staff at Himalayan Glacier Trekking for making our trip an adventure to remember. Page is already talking about a tour of India for our next vacation.

Thanks again,
