Kewal is great! Amazing trip to Annapurna Base camp


Trip Advisor Review

We chose to do the 10 day trek to Annapurna Base camp (6 days up, 4 days down) with this company and were very very happy with our decision! The staff in the office were very welcoming and friendly and answered all our questions, even gave us a tea! We got free t shirt and map, bonus. We were shown to a cheap shop to buy all the warm gear we didnt have, and had a hired down jacket and sleeping bag included in the price. We did all inclusive trip with guide and porter. If we did it again we probably wouldn't get a guide as there are so many people on the trek you wouldnt get lost. However we had a brilliant time with Kewal our guide; he taught us Nepali, taught us about the local people, the politics in Nepal, the crops etc. He gave us a hot drink and cookies at the end of every day which was just what we needed. He sorted everything out so all we had to think about was the walking and beautiful views! The hotel in pokhara and all the accommodation we stayed in were lovely, much better than we expected, and the food was great too. On returning to the office we were given vouchers for a local restaurant and received a free meal and drink there which was EPICCC. ABC was absolutely wonderful, there was snow from MBC as well as clear skies. DO IT DO IT DO IT!

Trip Advisor Review

My 3rd trip with Himalayan Glacier and they continue to impress with not only their before trip efforts in planning and helping with logistics, but they follow through with amazing on the ground service as soon as you land in Kathmandu. I was met at the airport by my guide Kewal and was never at a need for anything the rest of the trip. My hotel Encounter was nice, good food and amazing service. My trek through the Khumbu to Gokyo was fantastic even given we had some challenging weather conditions. Everything went extremely smooth even when plans changed there weren't any problems at all. Lifelong friends have been made and I hope to go back again soon and wouldn't hesitate to use their professional services again and recommend them without reservation,
