The misery of a 7.8 magnitude earthquake on April 25 was shared the most by Rasuwa followed by other parts of Nepal. Consequently, Rasuwa was declared a red-alert zone by the Nepal government instantly. The disaster claimed over 8,000 lives and affected 8 million people. Langtang Valley alone lost 400 lives, flooded away by an earthquake-triggered avalanche, destroying an entire village and infrastructures. The district is still suffering and needs support from all sides, especially to re-maintain its position as one of the most famous trekking destinations in Nepal.

One of the most affected aspects in the Langtang Valley is education. During our field assessment, we found all but one school currently in operation in the area. The locals are not yet ready to reconstruct schools and send their children in upper parts of the valley due to fear. Mixing an unforgettable trekking experience with good deeds, we have come up with an amazing itinerary that will not only provide trekkers with pure Himalayan adventure, but also an opportunity to be a part of change.

Here’s what we are trying to do:

  • Fundraise for Shree Nepal Rastriya Primary School in Khangjim. We commit 100 US $ for every trek we sell to the school committee, to help them for school development and infrastructure reconstruction.
  • Provide our client’s with a new perspective to experience Langtang National Park – one of the most famous trekking routes in Nepal.
  • Provide our clients with the opportunity to take part in volunteering activities to make travel more exciting.
  • An opportunity for students and teachers in remote region to indulge in cross-cultural environment of learning.
  • Allow Langtang to welcome as much visitors as it used to before earthquake.

BACKGROUND OF THE SCHOOL

Shree Nepal Rastriya Primary School is located in the lower part of Khangjim-VDC. This is the only existing school from lower to upper Langtang route, as all the other schools were completely destroyed by the April 2015 earthquake. The school runs classes for 1st to 5th grade students, who are a total of 46 students. They have only one building (one storey) with 4 rooms including the office. The building has cracks as a result of the earthquake. The school is in need of serious public attention and ideas of renovation. It is currently equipped with only 5 teachers.

ACTIVITIES

1. Volunteering

If you are someone who believes helping others is the best way to travel, this trip is for you. We donate 100 US $ from every trip we sell to the school management committee. We also offer volunteers opportunities to extend their support in the field. You can get involved in the following activities in the school for 2 days:

  • Teaching English (alphabets and words in lower grades and basic conversation in upper grades), Mathematics, Science and other subjects
  • Taking part in extra-curricular activities (sports, team-building and debates)
  • Hand-washing and nutrition classes
  • Arts and Crafts classes. (Origami, basic art classes). You may have to bring color pencils and/or coloring books etc as the school will most likely lack those items)

2. Trekking

We will leave for Langtang Valley Trek after spending some days in the school. Be with us as we ascend the pine forests, rocky dunes, Yak meadows and the mighty Kyanjin-Ri (Langtang View). The Sherpa culture starts to make more sense as we climb, with occasional encounters with donkeys, horses, Yaks, wild boars, pheasants and the vegetation inside one of the most popular National Park area of the country. The Valley has wide range of vegetation, wildlife, glaciers, local culture and fresh air for us as we walk by.

WHY TRAVEL WITH US?

We are a leading travel and tour company working in the Tourism Sector since 1992. We are also a socially committed organization and are involved in social initiations for keeping the environment clean and internalizing zero waste policy. We are allied with The International Ecotourism Society and Leave No Trace. We were one of the first travel companies to reach out in earthquake affected zones with volunteering and relief distribution.

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.

Excellent Guide and Safe This was my first time being above 5000 metres and multiple day hike for more than 3 days. I am not that fit :p. Our guide, Ganga (Man) Bahadur Tamang ensure that we are all safe. He was joyful and full of encouragement, and really keen to make his client successful in the climbing. We all made it to the base camp and no one get sick. Man ensures all of our food and drinks are clean by entering the kitchen himself. We have the best porter too, Jiban. He assisted carrying my day bag too to help in the Chola Pass and Everest Section when he saw I am struggling. Both Man and Jiban go far and beyond to make us comfortable, enjoy the trip, and safe. Putting our guide Man phone number here, and photo. +977 984 2868506

"Mera Peak and Amphu Lumbcha Pass We did Mera Peak and Amphu Lumbcha pass October 2019 with help of Himalayan Glacier trekking company. From the beginning of planning to the very end of this adventure I couldn't be happier. People from this company are truly doing everything to make sure you are getting what you want and you leave with best possible experience. They are really professional at what they doing. My trip was tailor made according to my time frame and a budget. Communication and planning was like a talking to long time friend. Cant say enough thank you to Rayuna and Ashmii for planning and taking care of logistics in the office. At the trekking itself we had two best possible guides, Sherpa Ongchhu and Sherpa Saila, who were making sure we are safe and have the best possible experience in the mountains. This company is always doing extra step, like surprising me with a birthday cake, which sometimes means a lot, especially when you'e far away from home. Thank You Ashmii for that. And of course big Thank you to the owner of this company Mr. Sagar. He was realy doing for me much more then he should. He makes me feel like I'm part of his family, like a brother. Thank You again. Bottom line this company learn it's reputation and it is highly recommended. I've been working with them several times and I will work with them again on my next adventure.

Everest Base Camp Luxury Lodge Trek Our group of five had an amazing time hiking to EBC! The Luxury Lodge option is definitely worth it as we slept in comfortable beds (sometimes with heating pads) and took hot showers almost daily. The meals provided were tasty, had a wide variety and large quantities. Both accommodations and food exceeded our expectations. We are so thankful to our guide and assistant guide - Shankar and Bhakta as well as 3 porters. They were professional, patient, had great communication and our guides were literally there for us every step of the way. Shankar even brought extra goodies for us like cookies and fresh fruit... and surprised us with cakes for my birthday and a wedding anniversary! We couldn’t have asked for a better crew. I would highly recommend booking with Himalayan Glacier for treks and tours in Nepal. Nepal will forever hold a special place in our hearts as my boyfriend proposed to me at EBC! Thank you HGTA for a memorable experience!

Nepal and Bhutan Tour Thank you to Himalayan Glacier wonderful staff and guides for an amazing experience !!! Everyone was very welcoming and helpful . The tours in Kathmandu were so insightful and I experienced a new culture and people . I learned so much along the journey , but the best is always getting to know our faraway neighbors !! The food was great, all the hotels were very nice . As a shopper who loves collecting regional crafts , Kathmandu was simply an amazing place to gather things to bring home and enjoy. Arriving in Bhutan we were warmly greeted by Norbu and Tenzing who gave us an amazing tour of Bhutan! Before our journey began we got to have dinner with departing guests and we all laughed , ate and enjoyed great conversation!! Paul and Debra. PS get a Nepal Visa beforehand if possible!!
