I arrived in Kathmandu in March 2013, knowing that I wanted to undertake the adventurous Kanchenjunga trek but with nothing booked and only one week to arrange the trip. A friend recommended Himalayan Glacier, and from the minute I stepped into the office, everything seemed possible. The options available were explained to me clearly, with my time frame and budget being taken into account. The Himalayan Glacier office became the epicenter of my time in Kathmandu, and the executive director, Naba Raj Amgai, made me very welcome there at all times.
The company had at their service a guide, Pasang Sherpa, who specialized in the Kanchenjunga route. His help and patience in hiring the necessary gear were invaluable. Pasang¹s good humor and joviality made the trek a real pleasure. He was always available to help communication flow smoothly between myself and local people. He was very supportive in helping me across challenging terrain and went to great lengths to make sure I was comfortable and had all I needed. It was obvious that my safety was his paramount concern, and I felt very well looked after.
