Before they went to Lhasa overland tour they went 3 days Chitwan National park for jungle safari and they did fantastic Elephant safari. Royal Chitwan National Park, the oldest National Park in Nepal, is situated in the sub-tropical inner Terai lowlands of South-Central Nepal. The Park was designated as a World Heritage Site in 1984.

Himalayan Glacier Trekking organized their 5th trip Kathmandu to Lhasa overland tour. The drive from Katmandu to Lhasa over spectacular Passes and revealing views of the majestic Himalayas, takes seven days over the “Friendship Highway”. The drive is well worth it as you encounter some enchanting Buddhist monasteries, highest mountain of the world (Mt. Everest) and remote villages untouched by modern civilization. While approaching the city you will be able to notice the Potala Palace, a vast white and ochre fortress that dominates the Lhasa skyline, en route we will stop for one night in Everest Base Camp (Ronbuk). Beside the Everest Base Camp, the will by pass through the major highlighted places of Tibet, Nyalam, Shigatse & Gyantse the historical seat of Tibetan power and the location of the tombs of previous Dalai Lamas, the Potala Palace has been reduced to serve as a symbolic feature for Tibetan aspirations.

My trip to Nepal was such a great experience

My trip to Nepal was such a great experience.
Thanks to the perfect organisation of HGT! All the people involved in the organisation, staff, guides, porters etc. are very professional. Above all, they have one thing on their mind: THE CLIENT

A good preparation of a trek is very important. It starts at home, with choosing a trekking-agency. From the first e-mail on, HGT felt as a very well organised organisation. They promised to call back within 24 hours. And they did! The communication with HGT is perfect, they do as they say and they always did as they promised.

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

the majestic Himalayan Mountains

Since I came back from my first trek in Nepal in April, I have been really busy. Indeed, the hustle and bustle of the life here is a stark contrast with the tranquility I experienced in the mountains. It makes me even more nostalgic about the trek I had with Thakur Penday as our guide.
Probably like many people who have not been to Nepal, I was looking forward to basking myself in the beauty of the majestic Himalayan mountains. No doubt, I saw the majestic Himalayan Mountains but what left me with deep impressions are the people I met. From the point we reached the airport, we felt the warmth of Nepali hospitality. We were treated more like friends rather than just mere visitors. As friends, we had the priviledge to hear from Thakur, his views of the political situation and we saw his passion for his country and his hope for the future. During the trek while we saw many porters carrying loads many times their own weight, I also saw the resilience of the people which is like the Himalayan Mountains that stood firm and sturdy in whatever weather conditions. On our day of departure, Naba came down to fetch us to the airport, even though he did not have much sleep as he was trying to help his friend the night before. I saw in him the dedication to his work as well as his kindness to his friend.

Through all these that I saw, I couldn’t help pray, “God, this is a wonderful country with wonderful people. May God bring to this country capable leaders who love the people and who will bring the country to the heights of the Himalayan mountains.” God bless Nepal!
