Reach to the top of the world and experience the heights

Undoubtedly, climbing Mount Everest in Nepal has proved to be a benchmark in the climbing arena in the whole world. Mount Everest summit can be accomplished both from the southern side in Nepal as well as the northern side in Tibet. The giant mountain receives overwhelming numbers, that is around 1000 summit attempts, each year. The tallest mountain in the world was first scaled in 1953 by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa via the South Col.

Climbing a mountain above 8000m like Mt. Everest and reaching the summit is certainly a lifetime opportunity. Yet, an expedition on Everest could come with many seen as well as unseen obstacles including high altitude, harsh weather conditions and even sheer exhaustion. Nepal began welcoming mountaineers and experienced climbers to the Everest region after the cultural revolution in the 1950s when China closed the Tibet borders to foreigners. Since then the South Col to reach the top of Mt. Everest via the Khumbu Valley became popular among the climbers.

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!!

FAQs

The requirement of time varies depending on the various agencies, weather conditions and the approach. In general, climbing Mount Everest takes anywhere around two months or a little more. This includes time for gathering supplies, trekking to the base camp from Lukla, acclimatization to the altitudes, and ultimately reaching the summit. Getting acclimatized at different elevations is very important for a successful climb. Thus, you will be spending few days at the base camp before climbing higher. Similarly, you will also spend few days at camp 1, camp 2, camp 3 and camp 4 before actually getting to the top. Himalayan Glacier’s Everest expedition itinerary requires 70 days to complete the adventure, the first day being your arrival day while the next two days will be preparation day in Kathmandu. Day 69 will be the day you fly back to Kathmandu from Lukla and day 70 is the day you will return home. The total climbing days excluding the days required for trekking up to the base camp and acclimatizing there begins on day 19 and ends on day 64. So, reaching the top from the base camp requires 45 days in total including several acclimatization days in the high camps.

Weather conditions in Mount Everest is always predisposed to unpredictable variations. However, the best time to climb Mt. Everest is during the spring season. The months of April and May are the best times to reach up to the summit. During this time of the year, the peak remains mostly clear and visible. Besides, fall is yet another season that is suitable for climbing the Everest. September and October comes immediately after the monsoon in Nepal and is probably the peak time for the ascent. During this time of the year, the weather is moderate and there is no chance of rainfall. Apart from the main climbing seasons, Mt. Everest is always cold, and making it up to the summit is rather tough during any other time of the year.

Once you arrive in Kathmandu airport, we recommend you purchasing a local SIM card. You can use this SIM card to communicate with your friends or family when you are in Kathmandu and during the entire trek. But, when you are climbing the Everest, the SIM card won’t work, and if it does, communication is possible on a very limited basis. You can use a satellite phone (if you have one) or you may request us to supply a satellite phone for your expedition journey to the Everest.

Firstly, you need to get your insurance in your home country as it is not available in Nepal. It is mandatory for our clients to be protected against comprehensive expenses likely to incur due to health issues, accidents, flight cancelation, trip cancelation (due to pandemic, political riots or natural calamities), to join any of our trips. However, the insurance coverage is not necessarily the same for different travel packages. For the type of insurance coverage you will need to do this trip, you can visit our travel insurance section that contains all detailed information.

Depending on the nature of sickness, our climbing guide will always be alert to attend to any medical calls. Our climbing guides are fully leadership trained and intensive wilderness first aid trained. If you start feeling dizzy or weak, you need to inform him right away and he knows just the right thing for you. If the guide sees the symptoms of altitude sickness on you, he will make necessary arrangements to shift you to a lower elevation immediately. While if the illness is quite severe, you may need for a helicopter rescue as well. So make sure, that you have your insurance covered for helicopter rescue too, apart from medical and personal losses.

Climbing a Himalayan peak that is 8000m or above is a critically physical endeavor. No matter what, it is still the ultimate mountaineering adventure. Getting to stand at the pinnacle of the earth is undoubtedly one of life’s most rewarding experiences. The steep snow-climbing through ice chunks during the expedition tempts climbers to test, enhance and improve their mountaineering skills. When you consider climbing the Mt. Everest, you need to ask yourself several questions and be very candid about your outcomes. You need to be truthful about your physical fitness, technical capability to handle the terrains, and mental capability of the associated hardships in the high altitudes. You need to have a very high level of physical endurance and also a previous experience of having climbed a 6000-er, a 7000-er or even an 8000-er before attempting to scale the highest one. Climbing Mt. Cho Oyu, Mt. Shishapangma or Mt. Manaslu would be a perfect recommendation before trying out on Mt. Everest.
