My very first trek

Annapurna Circuit Trek

For me it was my very first trek and I enjoyed it much more than I had ever expected it to be.The beautiful landscapes, the kindness of the Nepali people and the trails were fantastic.The first week, trekking from Syange to Thorung Pedi, I think is the most beautiful part of the trip.I especially enjoyed the landscape because it is so rough out there.And then off course, walking across the Thorung La Pass was very memorable, because it took us eight days to get there. The Himalay Glacier Team did a very good job.Everything was taken care of and they arranged a guide and porter that really made the trip very nice.A trip like this is quite a challenge because of the steepness and the height and therefore you should be well prepared physically to be able to really enjoy it.

Annapurna Circuit Trek

Annapurna Circuit Trek

I did the Annapurna Circuit trek with Himalayan Glacier Trekking staff‐Suresh and Ram in late 2012‐early 2013. As a female solo trekker, I was a bit worried about personal safety originally. With back and forth emails with the supporting staff‐Indira from the Himalayan Glacier, I could feel their reliability and so decided to join the Annapurna trek. I have enjoyed the time for the 21‐day trip, spending time with Suresh and Ram as well as some time just day‐dreaming on my own. 16‐day trek  just passed so fast and I am now safely back to my home town with a piece of unique memory.

Namaste!

Many thanks for your excellent arrangement for our trekking and climbing Mera Peak in March 2008. It was our second experience with Himalayan Glaciers and we were truely satisfied with your service. Your company and staffs were always ready to listen to and meet the client's needs. 

The trekking and climbing was perfectly organized to ensure the climber's safety as well as the successul summit climbing.

We were impressed by your climbing sherpa's high standards in his experise and leadership. We were also satisfied with other staffs: cooks provided us with tasty food and the porters were always smiling and helpful. Although a week has barely passed since we returned home, we already miss Himalyas and people there.

Langtang

Langtang Valley Trek

Ms Conny and Mr Patrick arrived in Nepal on 9th February 2007 and did several treks and tours in Nepal and Tibet. First two days they spent in Kathmandu for preparation and adjustment and they flew to Lukla from where Everest Base Camp trek start. After 17 days great Everest Trek they returned Kathmandu.  After 3 days rest in Kathmandu they started Langtang Circuit Trek. They did exciting two weeks trek is known as the “Trekkers Paradise of Nepal” because it offers some of the most captivating cultural encounters and exceptional diversity of scenery available in Nepal After unbelievable Langtang Circuit trek they started AROUND MANASLU. This trek around Manaslu is a true classic traveling into one of the most remote regions of Nepal. Many consider it to be the best trekking route in all the Himalayas. This Challenging trek is spectacular, both geographically and culturally. Everest Base Camp and Langtang Circuit Trek they did lode to lodge trek but this trek they did full bard tent to tent camping trek   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.

Trip of a Life Time

Everest Base Camp Trek

They say Everest base camp trek, a trip of a Life Time… but it’s not just the destination but the people around you that help to make it so…
 
Before I had even left New Zealand I received informative e-mails to help with any questions, no matter how blonde or simple the question they answered. I was so impressed I knew then Everest base camp trek was going to be a great trip.

On arrival in Kathmandu I was warmly meet at the airport by our guide Thakur and later the whole team at the office. I was joined with 3 others in my group and our trip started with a Traditional Nepalese dinner and a city tour of Kathmandu the following day.
At last the big day arrived, Day 1, our flight to Lukla and onto Everest Base Camp. We had with us 2 porters, 2 assistant guides and Thakur our guide. These guys were amazing, not only carrying our packs but looking after us all the way. Making sure we were happy, healthy and coping Ok with the altitude and drinking lots of water (over 3 liters per day is required). Walking slowly slowly was the answer but that didn’t worry us because we were slow anyway!

After 9 nights we made it to Everest Base Camp, totally incredible all the way. Then 4 nights back to Lukla (a night early as the weather was changing). We said our sad goodbyes to our porter team then flew back to Kathmandu with Thakur (looking forward to a really hot shower). The trip ended with a celebration dinner, followed by more sad goodbyes to my team mates and Himalayan Glacier team.

I had an amazing time and when asked, would I do this Everest base camp trek again, the answer was YES! Especially with Himalayan Glacier Trekking.

An experience of a lifetime

Everest Base Camp Trek

The 19 day Everest Base Camp trip was an experience of a lifetime. Photop by Jennifer 'Everest trip'Not only was the hiking and scenery incredible but the team of sherpas, porters, and staff were so knowledgable and wonderful to experience the trip with.  Everything was extremely organized and by the end I really felt like the group had become like a family and had conquered such a wonderful adventure / challenge together.

I would definitely recommend Himalayan Glacier Trekking without any question. My hometown newspaper actually wrote an article about me and I have attached it here...

Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest Base Camp Trek

After looking at many trekking companies, we decided to go with Himalayan Glacier Trekking, which was based in Thamel in Kathmandu. As soon as we made an enquiry Naba and his staff were very helpful and organised a highly enjoyable trek.

We were a bit apprehensive at first about going trekking in Nepal, but Naba and his staff provided us with all the information we required, exceeding our expectations. Naba would often ring us up to answer any urgent questions straight away, and his email correspondence was always very clear and detailed.

We booked our flights in and landed in Kathmandu 2 days before the start of our trek. Naba had booked us into a very nice hotel right in the middle of the tourist district (Thamel) in downtown Kathmandu.

Naba and the guide we had been assigned, Prakash, met us at the airport and took us to the hotel. We spent the day settling in, with Prakash helping us to find all the right equipment we needed for our trek. We had dinner with them that night where they explained everything about the trek, and eased our last minute fears.

The day before we were to set off Prakash took us all arounf Kathmandu to the main tourist sites. It was a very enjoyable day and a great way to get to know our guide, who we would be with for the next 2 weeks. This was a great feature (free of charge) of the trek granted by HG Trek, as it gave us time to get to know our guide as the company put their customers enjoyment at the fore and make sure the guide is suited to the trekkers.

Prakash spoke English very well, was always polite and very patient with us. Everything before during, and after the trek was organised meticulously. 

The trek itself was thoroughly enjoyable; Prakash always made sure our needs were met. Being my first time away from home, Prakash would always let me use his mobile phone to call my family back in Australia. I cannot speak highly enough of our guide and the company he represents. Our porter, which the company assigned, was a quiet, but very nice young man.

If I ever go back to trek in Nepal again, I will not hesitate in contact Himalayan Glacier Trekking. They are friendly, reliable, and will give you an amazing, and most of all fun experience that you won’t forget.

Great Experience

Everest Base Camp Trek

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.

Guillaume 

Naba, the sales and operation manager, took very well care of all the questions I had. I got the awnsers always within a few days. He “listened” very carefully to my wishes, the match between me and my guide was absolutely perfect. I met my guide, Yam, already in Kathmandu. We had the chance to get to know each other better, before flying to Lukla. He advised me very well with buying some equipment for my trek.

During the trek Yam took very well care of me. He is a very well experienced porter com guide. The lodges were all perfect, except the one in Lobuche. But is was very crowded at that time. The food was delicious. Yam told me a lot about the life at the Everest area. I never took a road twice. He showed of course all the touristic places, but also took me to places where not so many tourists come. Yam, the sunrise at 6 o’clock at the monastery of Thame I will never forget!!!

 

Although I did not reach my final destination, Everest Base Camp/ Kala Pattar, (and I wanted to get there for almost 18 years) the trek was a major life experience. The flora and fauna of the Sagarmatha National Park is so beautiful! Due to my very experienced guide, I met a lot of local people. He showed and told me a lot of the cultural and spiritual heritage. Trekking is not only about altitude!

Back in Kathmandu, I stayed in the very nice Hotel Encounter. It’s the best hotel I ever had, everybody is so polite! In four days I saw a lot of the beautiful city of Kathmandu. I also visited the CEN orphanage which was a great experience. I’m impressed by the social involvement of HGT as well as their environmental involvement!

If you ever plan to go to Nepal do not hesitate to contact Himalayan Glacier Trekking. You can also just walk in the office whenever you’re in Kathmandu. They can make your trek to a success and make your dream come true!!! Sagar, Naba and Yam, thank you for everything you did for me!

Service exceeded all expectations

Everest Base Camp Trek

Upon arrival we were welcomed by our guide Hom Nath, after which we were introduced to all the friendly staff. Everyone was willing to go beyond the call of duty to help us settle in. The welcome dinner proved to be one of the many highlights of trip. Naba made sure everyone was kept up to date with all the proceeding during our stay in Kathmandu, after personally escorting us to the airport he wished us well on our journey towards Everest.

Hom Nath and his team of sherpa’s and porters made sure everyday ran as smoothly as possible. The guides were an endless source of information, as we trekked through the Kumbu Valley, attending to all of our needs. Hom Nath made sure everyone was acclimatizing well, keeping a watchful eye on everyone’s progress. The fact that the entire group reached basecamp Everest can be attributed to Hom Nath role as the team leader, and the support he received from the other sherpa’s.

He paced the group perfectly, encourages the stragglers, and managed all nine individuals within the group with ease. Everyone was made to feel warm and welcomed within the group, never neglecting an individual for a moment. His friendly smile and positive attitude help lift weary sprits, even on toughest of days.

Himalaya Glacier trekking is performing a level of service most companies only dream to reach. They are excellent ambassadors for the company and their country. I would recommend using their service to any one considering visiting Nepal, you will not be disappointed. We all look forward to seeing you again in the near future, thank you for making our trek a special one.

Many thanks
