Annapurna Sanctury Trek – Remembrance for the rest of our lives!

We all enjoy trekking but had only been around in Sweden before. Therefore we wanted to experience trekking abroad. After recommendations from friends, who visitied Nepal and Himalayan Glacier one year earlier, we decided to go to Nepal and do the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek. This was a decision we have not regretted.

We want to thank Himalayan Glacier Trekking for making our trekking experience something to remember for the rest of our lives!

Himalayan Glacier Trekking is a full service company that took care of us from the time that we arrived in Kathmandu until we left.

When we arrived to the airport in Kathmandu we were greeted by our trekking guide who was paitiently waiting for us (our bags were one of the last bags put on the luggage belt).

Prior to the trek Himalayan Glacier Trekking provided a guided one day tour in Kathmandu followed by an excellent welcome dinner. It was interesting to get a view of the city and its history, the people and the culture.

It can sometimes be hard for tourists to know what to bring to a trip like this, especially when you are not familiar with the season and the variable weather conditions. Himalayan Glacier Trekking helped us with all necessary information and also checked our gear before starting the trek.

The Annapurna Sanctuary Trek takes 12 days to accomplish. However, the guide can adapt the trek to the conditions and wishes of the group. Along the trek there were plenty of time to make stops for taking pictures, drinking water and look at the beatiful scenery in front of us. In average we walked about 4-5 hours a day in a landscape that shifted a lot in apperance – rhododendron forests, high peaks, glaciers and hot springs among other things. Breathtaking views!

Arriving to the lodges everything was already set for our stay. The Himalayan Glacier Trekking staff had booked the best rooms for us and most of the lodges had showers with warm water. Very nice after a day of walking!

All the lodges had a meny from which you could order a number of different meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We usually ordered the vegetarian meals which did not make us disappointed. We remember escpecially the vegetarian pizza in Chomrong! So tasty!!!

Both the accommodation and food exceeded all our expectations!

All the staff (manager, guide, sherpas and porters) were very friendly, helpful and answered all the questions that we had about the environment and animals etc but also told us about Nepalesian people and the way they live.

We remember especially one occasion when our credit card got stuck in an ATM and we had given up hope to get it back. When our guide, Kapil, heard about this he immediately contacted the bank and arranged so we could get the card back the next morning. Thank you Kapil for helping us!

Finally we once again want to thank Himalayan Glacier Trekking for arranging such a wonderful and memorable trip for us. We give our best recommendations!

Thanks to  Naba (Travel Manager, Nepal),  Kapil (Nepal Trekking Guide),  Shiba (Assistant Trekking Guide), Ganesh (Assistant Trekking Guide), Raam (Assistant Trekking Guide), Babu (Assistant Trekking Guide)

Our second trip across Nepal

We are kindly expressing our huge gratitude to you personally and to all management team of “Himalaya Glacier ” and to the guides of your company, Prem and Suraj for our trip across Nepal. It was absolutely perfectly organized and we are happy to say to you thanks for it. That was our second trip across Nepal and all those cases we’ve been co-operated with the only your company and people above.

There was quite a big number of people in our group from Russia (we had very big group (42 persons) from Moscow.), but all things were organized perfectly and based on the high professional level, including travel route, sightseeing places and all necessary facilities on the trip.

Pokhara and Annapurna Trek

Thank you very much for organizing our trek from Pokhara. It was the highlight of our visit to Nepal. All air and ground transportation was perfectly arranged, our hotels and guest houses were comfortable, and our guide, Dev Raj Giri, was excellent. His knowledge and consideration for our welfare insured a pleasurable experience. Thank you also for your personal attention to our needs while we were planning our trip, and especially during our entire time in Nepal.

India and Sikkim Trek

With the holidays behind me, I can finally sit down and organize my thoughts regarding our trip to India. I apologize (also to Randeep) that is has take me so long to do this and that the first attempt did not reach you. So I will try again and hope that it works this time!

It’s funny because I was just watching CNN and saw a commercial for “Incredible India” and thought to myself “wow, what a place!” as I saw the images flash by. Sometimes you wonder when you see an ad like that if it really is as beautiful as they make it out to be. We didn’t see even half of India, but what we did see left us with a lingering impression. India has definitely left its mark on us.

And thank you to HGT Staffs for your excellent guiding during the entire trek and for your friendly and helpful attitude. Our 13 days on the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek were a fantastic experience. The trek was a magnificent nature experience with rice terraces, rododhendron forests, Langor monkeys, waterfalls, hot springs, amazing mountain views and much much more – amazing!!

It was very good that we always could set our own pace with numerous breaks for water or taking photos.

Annapurna circuit trek was a brilliant

We just wanted to say thanks again for organising such a brilliant Annapurna circuit trek. Prakase and Sontas were excellent as Guide, Porter and travel companions. We had a really good laugh with them and they were full of information about the Anapurna region.

The Anapurna Circut has been the best trek Paul and I have ever done and I just wanted to say thank you for organising the trip, accomodation, transfers, the safari trip and the rest of it so brilliantly. Everything went like clockwork and we were extremely happy and well looked after. We would definitely love to do this trek again and we’ll be giving you a call if we do! We will definitely recommend Himalayan Glacier to any of our friends thinking of doing this trek. I’ve attached some photo’s of us at the Thorong la pass
