Firstly, I must say the correspondence we received by the team at Himalayan Glacier prior to arriving in Nepal was outstanding. We felt completely comfortable prior to leaving home knowing that we would be joining a highly professional tour and they certainly delivered on that for the duration of our time in Nepal. Thank you!
Trekking in a different environment combined with altitude change and the various fitness levels and personalities in a group can be challenging. I cannot speak highly enough of our excellent guide, Bimal. His professional yet relaxed and personable nature was instrumental in the success of our group. Better still, I feel I've gained a brother, not just great memories of our tour. Bimal managed our individual requirements with natural ability and leadership. In addition to this, and unlike other groups we observed, the great relationship developed between the group and Bimal and Saroj allowed us to have a lot of laughter and great times together at the tea houses. Bimal is a great asset to Himalayan Glacier and I know Saroj will make an excellent lead guide! A massive heart felt thank you to them!
An amazing trek through breathtaking scenery, in a truly special country, led by an extraordinary guide! Looking forward to the next trip with Himalayan Glacier!
I would like to take a moment to let you know the wonderful job Yeshi Wangdi did as my tour guide for Bhutan. He was very kind, flexible and willing to continually adjust my itinerary and accommodations if necessary. He has the knowledge on the history and culture of Bhutan which brings vitality and joy to the journey for his client.
As he got more familiar with what I liked he was able to suggest wonderful places to visit. He was punctual and kept me busy as I requested. I would highly recommend him as a guide.
I had two drivers one for two days but he did a very good job...the second for longer...he did an excellent job driving long hours on some very difficult roads. He was responsible, kind and polite...I would highly recommend him as a driver.
Thank you for a wonderful trip to Bhutan...I look forward to visiting there again...it is a special place.
We are back in Switzerland with the great experience of the wonderful trip we had in Nepal and Tibet, Kailash.
We would like to thank you and the entire Himalayan Glacier Tour Team very much for all your efforts to make our trip unforgettable. The organisation was perfect in every point of view!
Please forward our big "Thank You" to our Guide Pasang Sherpa and our fabulous cook/guide Tamding Sherpa. Both of them, they did a very good job, they were helpful and happy at all the time!
Thank you Pasang and Tamding!!
Thank you to the great team at Himalayan Glacier for making my trip to Nepal such a memorable one - even after 9 years of planning the trip it still exceeded my expectations.
A huge thank you to you & the reservations staff for all the smooth arrangements and indeed your flexibility on helicopter bookings and changes to my itinerary as my trip progressed. I found everything very well organised right from pick-up at the airport through to our celebration dinner after the trek and also my additional 3-day trip to the lovely Chitwan National Park (thank you for the recommendation of the Green Park Luxury Lodge which was ideal and a lovely place to relax!).
My trip would not have been the same without Deu (my excellent guide) and please pass on my sincere thanks to him. He looked after me so well and was very knowledgeable about the mountains, the culture and all the practicalities of the region. When I return again to Nepal for more trekking I hope that Deu will again be available to act as my guide! Thank you also to Shankar who was very helpful on the trail and in Kathmandu, and it was a pleasure to trek together with Shankar and his clients.
Having booked the 'Luxury Lodge' EBC option I was very impressed by the high quality of the hotels/tea-houses along the trek, particularly the Yeti Mountain Home hotels where the additional luxuries like private bathrooms, WiFi, great food, and heated blankets made such a difference. My guide always worked hard to ensure that each stay was as comfortable as possible. I also enjoyed my stays at the Yatri Suites hotel in Kathmandu which was very comfortable and with helpful staff in a great location.
Also I thought that the trekking kit that Himalayan Glacier supplied to me in Kathmandu (down jacket, sleeping bag and duffel bag) was top quality and served me very well in the mountains!
I have no hesitation in highly recommending Himalayan Glacier to anyone planning a trip to Nepal, and would be happy to provide a phone or e-mail reference to anybody from the UK or elsewhere as required.
The Everest Region of Nepal makes it into every trekker’s bucket list and remains a reverie for the rest. The river of fanfare associated with this region understandably springs from the highest peak in the world- the Everest. The region is second only to the Annapurna in terms of popularity and number of trekkers. Additionally,…read more
