Trek the ancient route to Mt. Kailash via Simikot in western Nepal and tour the magical Garuda Valley and Mansarovar Lake

Kailash Tour via Simikot is an excellent journey to Mt. Kailash whereby we experience trekking in one of the most remote western parts of Nepal before entering Tibet.  We arrive in Kathmandu and spend a day resting and preparing for the trip and fly to Nepalgunj, a city in the western Terai plains of Nepal the next day. On our Simikot to Kailash journey, we travel along ancient pilgrimage routes and trade links, trekking across the border into Tibet. The Tibet tour starts with a visit to the Garuda valley, a place believed to be the cradle of the Tibetan civilization during the ancient times when Bon religion was practiced throughout Tibet, long before Buddhism was introduced. Next, we circumambulate Mt. Kailash and tour Mansarovar Lake, both of which hold great natural, cultural and religious significance. The Kailash Tour via Simikot ends in Lhasa which is called the ‘cradle of Tibetan civilization.

Luxury Lodge Everest Base Camp trek, amazing company! Amazing from start to finish! Excellent communication as we planned our trip. Our guide, Pradeep met us at the airport, and we were extremely well cared for by him and the team, from beginning to end. The trek, accommodations, food and other inclusions were wonderful, but even better was that we truly made friends with our porter, guide and even the owner of the company. Truly a life-changing experience, and one I would recommend to anyone!

Great experience and wonderful job by the Himalayan Glacier team! I have recently done a private Everest Base Camp trek, organized by the Himalayan Glacier team. The team has done a wonderful job! I would like to start by thanking Rayuna, who is an adventure planner at the company and has been my principal contact before I arrived in Nepal. Rayuna has been amazing every step of the way, from planning and booking to answering all the questions and providing all the necessary information for the trip. It has been particularly challenging since the trip was first scheduled right before the pandemic, and we had to move and re-schedule several times following changes in covid restrictions. I was very glad to be able to also meet Rayuna in person in Kathmandu and thank her in person. Now to the actual Nepal experience. Everything was very well organized and worked like a well-oiled machine. My guide Sudar was great all the way to and from the Base Camp. He took care of everything along the way. He was also great at balancing what we needed to do to complete the trek in time with letting me move at more or less my pace, so I can pause to take that extra photo or just take a look at the magnificent scenery around me or slow down a bit to allow my body to acclimate to high altitude as we kept ascending to the Base Camp. Sudar was always there to answer any additional questions and share a joke. I also would like to mention our lovely porter - Bir - who always had a smile on his face! This trip would have been so much harder without the guidance of Sudar and the help of Bir to carry our stuff. As much as I tried to limit my load to bare necessities, the duffel bag still had some serious weight to it. So, thank you Bir! Overall, I had a wonderful trip - magnificent views of the majestic Himalayas, great food all along the way, and lovely people around. Thank you very much to the Himalayan Glacier team for their help organizing the trip! I am definitely coming for more!

EBC Trek Would recommend this company to anyone and will be using them again in the future myself. My guide Subash and Porter Suman were critical to me reaching the base camp, I couldn’t have done it without them. Himalayan Glacier was also quick to answer any questions I had and were extremely helping through the whole process

Mount kilimanjaro I just completed the Mount kilimanjaro climb organized by Himalayan Glacier. I was supported by a fantastic guide Fromance. He ensured my safety and took me on several additional walks at the various huts where we stayed. We had fun and very interesting adventures. The rest of the team included a fantastic chef, Yona, who created spectacular dishes including a celebratory cake for us after finishing the climb. I would highly recommend anyone considering this climb to go with Himalayan Glacier

The trip of a lifetime! This was such an incredible experience! It is so difficult to describe just how majestic and breathtaking the Himalayas really are. Every single day of the trek I found myself humbled by the scale and beauty of the mountains. Himalayan Glacier absolutely outdid themselves in terms of providing us with a trek that was organised, safe, fun, and most importantly, successful in making it up to Everest Base Camp! Our guide Homnath was friendly and knowledgeable, and our porter Bhakta was such a gentle and kind man. They both helped make our trip so easy and special. I'm so so pleased that I booked this trek through this company. I think it's really important to support the local community by using a guide and Himalayan Glacier provides a comprehensive end-to-end package that gave me total peace of mind through the entire trip (from landing in Kathmandu to leaving to go back to London).

3 Passes Trek with EBC Had an amazing time trekking with Himalayan Glacier and especially my guide Ashish. The service was excellent and far exceeded expectations. Really, it was more than I could have ever imagined from start to finish. Everyone I met with and talked to at Himalayan Glacier were so kind and friendly and answered all my questions and provided great feedback about other parts of Nepal also. If you're thinking about trekking in Nepal I would highly recommend using Himalayan Glacier

Khopra Ridge - fabulous trek! Trekking to Khopra Ridge was an amazing experience! It is a little off the beaten path, which we appreciated. Not crowded at all. We felt like we had the mountains to ourselves. The trek was hard, make no mistake. But we expected that, and were delighted to challenge ourselves...and make it! We had the very best guide in all of Nepal: Pradip. He was young (30) but very experienced. He started over a decade ago with Himalayan Glacier as a porter, and is an accomplished, professional guide. He spoke excellent English and his knowledge of the terrain, culture, mountains, flowers, trees...was exhaustive. We also had the very best porter in all Nepal: Arjun. Retired from the Nepal Army, he had travelled many of places as a UN peacekeeper. He had an infectious smile and was such a great encouragement. Slow, slow, you can do it! We chose Himalayan Glacier very deliberately. We wanted a Nepalese owned company. Everyone at HG was super. They arranged every detail and everything went smoothly, from airport pick up to departure. We would both recommend Himalayan Glacier. If you want a great Nepal experience, with a Nepalese company, they are the company for you! Thank you Pradip. Thank you Arjun. Thank you HG. Hope to return and see you all again. Grace and Abbey

An awesome experience The beautiful scenery, people and culture of Nepal and the Himalayas made this trip one of the best that I have done, and I have travelled abroad a number of times. Spending time exploring the mountain villages and being amongst the locals going about their normal business was a delightful experience and the memories are now etched in my mind. The tour company, Himalayan Glacier, made the trip so easy and trouble free. From airport pick to drop off at the end of the trip I did not have to worry about a thing. The flight to Lukla, all accommodation and meals during the treck were arranged for me so I could could simply enjoy the treck in a hassle free environment. I had a large menu to chose from at all places and the food was delicious, especially the Sherpa vegetable soup. I'm planning to go back and do the Everest Base Camp treck next year with Himalayan Glacier. I strongly recommend planning to stay in Kathmandu for a few extra days after the treck in case of inclement weather delaying the flight out of Lukla. I was lucky and caught my scheduled flight but quite a few people were delayed for 1 day and 2 days as safety is paramount.

Wonderful Nepal Adventure We had a group of 5 and wanted to spend 3 weeks exploring Nepal. They designed a route that fit what we wanted to do! Than after reaching EBC, which was our big goal, Suresh our guide was able to change our plans at our request! We had wanted to do Gokyo Valley but decided to slow down and get away from the popular areas. We visited some less traveled trails with amazing views! They took super good care of us all the time.

Himalayan Glacier
H. G. - BEST trekking company in Nepal!

There are so many superlatives to use when talking about Himalayan Glacier, but here are just a few reasons why I consider them one of the best trekking companies in Nepal:  
They are extremely trustworthy - I had booked this trip with them in the fall of 2017, but had to cancel it because of serious health issues. I had already put down a large deposit, and H.G. refunded every penny back to me with no questions asked!
When I was finally able to go trekking in May 2018, H.G. continued to be the only company I found which offers trekking into Tibet from Nepal - paperwork to go into Tibet is very complicated, and H.G. took on the task and made everything work out extremely well. Even when our party had increased difficulties with Chinese visas while already underway, H.G. flew a representative to eastern Nepal and then trekked into where we were to bring the new paperwork at no additional cost to us!
H.G. is a local company which fully understands the local culture: I found everyone at H.G. to be extremely friendly and knowledgeable - from top management through booking agents, to guides and porters. The company has been around 27 years, and has much experience under their belts. I felt like they were "family" to me when I left, and hope to have forged long-term relationships.
I had only great experiences with this company!

Himalayan Glacier
Once in a lifetime adventure

After 4 years of planning and waiting, I finally arrived at the foothill of Mount Kailash and completed the Kora! Given the prior excellant experience with Himalayan Glacier, I wouldn't pick any other company but Himalayan Glacier to organize this dream adventure for me. 
The staff at HGL were wonderful. Prior to the trip, Vidya made sure all our questions were answered. Mr. Naba made sure we were well taken care of every step of the way. Pasang and Tandim were awsome in taking care of our daily needs. I still miss Tandim's noodles! He is not an ordinary cook; he is very knowledgable about the trek and the people in that area. The Tibetan counterpart did well in terms of educating us about Tibetan cultures and religion. 
This trek goes through places that will take your breath away. I am so glad I did it with such wonderful and capable crew! They made all the difference!

Trek Simikot-Hilsa_Kora del Kailash

Nepali trek from Simikot to Hilsa has been very very fine, technically easy, with great natural landscapes, little villages and local friendly people; we have had great guide and skilfull cook. In Tibet we meet some sites with basic accomodation but balanced by powerful nature, wild animals and above all moving religiosity, around Kailash and Manosarovar lake, in gompa and monastery up to fantastic Lhasa Potala and Jokang. Tibetan guide was careful and very deep knowing about Budhhism. In Tibet police everywhere!
