More customer-friendly and more approachable that we are, our family connection, we believe, gives positive associations.
Himalayan Glacier is a 100% family-owned and a family-run company that was founded by a far-sighted dynamic young man SAGAR PANDEY in a tiny office space in Kathmandu, Nepal in 1992. Since then, the company that initially started with a goal to provide the best experience in Nepal and the Himalayas has grown to offer treks, climbs and leisure tours in four major Himalayan countries – Nepal, Bhutan, India, and Tibet. Now, Tanzania as a new addition makes Himalayan Glacier one of the most successful boutique adventure companies in the country. More than 10 thousand people have successfully reached Everest Base Camp without a single death report so far. The company has become the #1 personalized and tailor-made Adventure and Travel Company. The reason behind the tremendous success is the qualified and happy team comprising travel consultants, guides, climbers, and the porters. The team consistently works round the clock making sure about the safety, success and enjoyable holidays of our customers.
In 2019 Sagar’s son, SANKET PANDEY joined the company and began operation of the USA office in Baltimore, MD, USA to support all our North American patrons. Now Kathmandu office is working as a strong operational office. To operate all our Himalayan tours or holidays, we do not use any third parties as we have our own team making us competent both in service as well as price. Similarly, Sagar’s brother SABIN PANDEY also joined the company officially in 2019 and began operation of the Northern Ireland & UK office to support and develop adventure and travel business in UK & Europe. Now, we have been recognized as the #1 Adventure and Travel Company in the USA specialized for ASIA, HIMALAYAS, and KILIMANJARO CLIMB. We are the pioneers in guiding Everest Base Camp Trek, Annapurna Base Camp Trek, Island Peak Climbing, other 6,000 meter (19,685 feet) peak climbing, Kilimanjaro Climb, Kailash Mansarovar Yatra, Leisure and Culture tours to Nepal, India, Tibet tours, Bhutan, Myanmar, Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, Philippines, Tanzania, and many more Asian Tours.
Making positive impact on the environment, society, and economy as a tourist helps making better places to live in and better places for people to visit
Earth is our home, and until Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos or some other genius figures out a way to move to another planet, it is our only home and the home of every species of animals and plants. As a responsible operator, we must be cautious to educate and take action to implement how our actions can minimize the impact on the environment and create maximum opportunities to the local people living for centuries waiting for a better life. Himalayan Glacier improves the lives of local people by bringing opportunities for business and employment and these people play an active role to protect nature, culture, and wildlife for the future generation! Conserving the natural environment, supporting local businesses, and supporting cultural projects are the three major pillars we focus to engage seriously with the issue of sustainable travel in places we travel. Let’s support local people and businesses making them more responsible through our small efforts. Himalayan Glacier is always committed in striving to do better and the efforts are clearly visible to all our customers as well as our crew members while traveling with us. Why do we encourage sustainable tourism?
One of the few reasons why there have been 98% success rates on the several base camp summits and other trekking trips
It is very important to trust the training as well as the several years of hands-on experience of your guide – especially when you are thinking of making a successful trip in the Himalayas or Asia. All our guides are certified by the local government authorities. All your Everest Base Camp trekking guides and expedition leaders are certified by NATHM (Nepal Academy of Tourism and Hospital Management) that educate, train and certify their jobs. All Himalayan Glacier mountain guides are well trained, tested young, Wilderness First Aids certified mountain leaders who have fluency in speaking English. Cheap operators use uncertified guides who are freelancers and inexperienced because they can’t afford to pay the quality guide that we possess.
Porters are the integral parts of all climbs as they bear the burden on their backs throughout the entire trip.
Any expedition or a climb would not run as smoothly as it needs to, or even impossible in some cases, without a porter’s help. What happens to your trip if they fall sick in the mountains? There is a huge stress for guides because of the lack of porters as you do not get an alternative to another porter in the middle of nowhere. Yet, there are lots of cases and evidences that porters are being exploited heavily in many ways mainly being UNDERPAID, OVERLOADED, UNDER FED, and POORLY SHELTERED during treks and also their poor gear or equipment, including worn-out boots and torn jackets. Due to the rise in the number of cheap/budget operators, the conditions for porters have not been better as they try to cut their cost in every way possible, which overlooks the safety and well-being of the porters.
At Himalayan Glacier, we love and treat our porters more than anyone in the team, which is why they prefer to work with us over other tour companies. Porters are the ones who carry the majority of a trekker’s baggage in varied terrains and dangerous pathways. They deserve equal respect and appreciation without being exploited. How do we keep our porters’ satisfied? Let’s discuss the facts of how the mountain porters are exploited whether in Everest Base Camp Climb or Kilimanjaro Climb.

Hello HG. Now that I have returned from Nepal and life is back to (boring) normal I wanted to give HG and all of its people a fantastic shout out! My brother and I had an amazing Trek to EBC. HG's planning throughout every stage of this trip was better than could be expected. From the airport pickup, hotel choice, the guide, the Teahouse stays, and all the way through to dropping us back off at the airport at the very end. Hg did a fantastic job and gave us very close attention. Our guide, Shanker, was fantastic. He attended to us every day and never was not there to help us in any way possible and we both made the journey without any problems thanks to him. We are 100 percent pleased with our decision to use HG for this trip. In a sea of Trekking companies to choose from, they were the perfect boat. We would tell anyone else who is shopping for a trekking company to use HG, and we would never return to Nepal without having them as our tour/trek operators. great job to everyone at HG. Cheers, Craig McDowellShow more
Where does one begin? From the very first decision to venture to the other side of the world, the Universe tested our focus & determination to stay on the path. My girlfriend & I went through such crazy experiences as; delayed local flights, missed international flights, internationally-delayed baggage, a broken (soleless) hiking boot, severe knee injuries.. and all of this happened before we even stepped foot in Nepal.Ever-trusting, and absolutely delighted by the divine-comedy of it all, Amber & I arrived in Kathmandu 30 hours later than planned, missing our original expidition, as well as half of our gear & clothing. Luckily for us, Himalayan Glaciar had a backup plan. Narayan & the team sent our new guide, Dol, to pick us up from the airport. Thanks to some quick coordinations, we were able to grab a new pair of hiking boots, and pick up the delayed bag with a late-night trip to the airport. That night, we re-planned our EBC trek, skipping a rest day in order to finish in time for our international return flights.The very next morning, we were faced with the decision to continue waiting for our weather-delayed flight to Lukla, with the looming possibility of losing another day to finish the EBC trek... Or purchase helicopter tickets (more quick thinking by Dol) to get us started on our trek that same day. We obviously made the jump and hopped on the first Heli to the Himalayas!So Amber & I set out on the trek of a lifetime with our awesome guide Dol & newly met porter, Fullman. Embarking on an incredible journey that humbled us to the core and taught us how to trust the path, stay present, and to be grateful. There were many, many times that Dol's problem solving and HGT's connections saved our skins; medication for sickness, last-minute lodging (our whole trip had to be re-booked on the go), and much-needed advice in super cold conditions... We started as a team but truly became a family on the trip.On the day celebrated as Buddhas birthday & enlightenment (Nepalese full moon in May), Amber & I made it to Everest Base Camp, where we proposed & became engaged to each other. I honestly don't think we could have safely achieved this in the speedy time that we did without Dol, Fullman, and the team at Himalayan Glacier Trekking. You'd better believe that we flew down the mountain feeling as accomplished & elated as a Tibetan monk reaching his goal of nirva.My humble advice: Forget the destination, trust the path you are on, and the people around you. You're all there for a reason.NamasteShow more
