Trip Advisor Review

I've had the good fortune to embark on the Everest basecamp trek (Short / 14 days) with HG, represented by our guide Shankar, and two porters. We were a small group of three trekkers, coming from Denmark and the US. For me and the others the real challenge was the altitude. Shankar did a really good job at continously checking up on our health, asking if we had symptoms all the while teaching us what to look out for. It meant the world to us that he handled this matter with the seriousness it deserved. Also, good humour, warmth and a positive attitude made him a perfect fit for our group. During the whole trek he was professional and had a lot of knowledge about the Himalaya mountains that he liked sharing with us. I liked the routine he established with breakfasts, afternoon tea (+ biscuits and a game of cards) and dinner (always followed by fruit as dessert). Apart from being a great social cohesive for our group, he also used those occasions to check up on us, as we started to ascend up further on the route to EBC. A big applause to our porters who were kind, professional and hardworking. They did a remarkable job handling the baggage, and I can't believe the strength they possess. As for the EBC trekking route itself - please don't underestimate the heights, it can be more gnarly than one might think. That's why it was nice that HG and it's staff sticks to best practice principles of acclimatization in the mountains. In conclusion, a highly recommended trekking company.

Feefo Logo Review

Himalayan Glaciers were extremely incredible to work with from the beginning by accommodating us with a private party of 5. Our group age ranged was from 35 to 60 years of age and all with a different amounts of hiking/trekking experience. With daily talks and expectations, we ALL were able to make the it to Everest Base Camp and back without a hitch. The guides, the inns and the food, truly made it the best way to trek to Everest Base Camp!
