Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lakes and Cho La Pass
Himalayan Glacier was great, starting with the excellent, warm and helpful e-mails from Vidya, who responded to my endless questions with grace and patience, to the friendly and non-complaining help of the porters--especially Bir, who mainly carried my duffel bag--who had to deal with my extra heavy packing, to the truly remarkable support, patience, and skill of Sudar, the guide, who literally dragged me over the Chola pass and waited for hours for me as I trudged slowly behind the rest of the group. Sudar was heroic in getting my unprepared body through this difficult but fantastic trek and always being upbeat about it. The company as a whole is supportive and the accomodations were very good along the way (there are better and worse teahouses, and they chose better). I had a wonderful experience and I would recommend this company to anyone planning a HImalayan trek. And at the risk of saddling Sudar, Bir, and others with other slow trekkers, I would just say that at 61, inadequately trained, and inherently slow, I felt I had found the right people to support me and enable me to have an amazing experience. So those of you like me: do it! And for everyone, you can trust this company to provide an excellent trek.
