The service we received from Himalayan Glacier was excellent, and I will be referring your company to friends of mine who are keen for a trek and climbing in 2009!

Island Peak Climbing
UK and Australia
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.
