Ken's review for another Himalayan Glacier Adventure and Travel Company tour
“We recently utilized Himalayan Glacier Trekking for a Mt. Kilimanjaro hike and summit. There were 9 in our party - a mix of men, women, young and "not so young". We hiked the Lemosho route, an 8-day hike. The experience was amazing. Our guide Paul, and his assistant guides Fredy, Paul, Orio and the others were all great! They were very attentive to our needs, engaging, friendly, spoke great English, and were always there to help or assist us in any way.Our meals were very good, and consisted of eggs, sausage, oatmeal, and toast for breakfast, various sandwiches, soups, and fruits for lunch, and chicken, pastas and vegetables for dinner. The staff did a great job of preparing and serving each meal - we did not go hungry!The overall hike and trip was amazing. The guides were especially helpful on the summit day, when several of our party needed to shed our backpacks to continue climbing. The guys were right there to grab the packs and keep helping us up. They, and we, were successful, with all of our party reaching the summit.This is the second trip i have taken with HGT, having also used them for an Everest Base Camp hike a couple of years ago. i highly recommend this very professional and friendly, customer-centric outfitter for your hiking trip to Kilimanjaro (or the Himalayas). You will not be disappointed with them!”

Benjamin's review for another Himalayan Glacier Adventure and Travel Company tour
“My husband and I planned Everest Base Camp trek for our anniversary. We wanted to mark our 25th year of marriage on the foothills of the world's highest mountain. Of course, we couldn't cut our cake at the altitude of 5,000 meters but being present there together was more than enough. We were worried that we might not make it on the expected day, but Himalayan Glacier did its magic. Thank you for pulling out strings to make this happen.”

The high pass at Thorong La pass remains occasionally shut during winter months because there is excessive snowfall at that time of the year. ⚫ The teahouses in the mountains are the trekking lodges that we will be sleeping for the nights. They are very simple with only basic facilities, unless we don’t book for a luxury trip that provides more-than-basic lodges at all available places. Access to charging ports may incur an extra cost if we need to charge any of our electronic devices, and Wi-Fi may not be available at all locations or may be available and may cost extra. ⚫ Packing for this trip totally depends on the season we will be trekking.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.

  • Is there a “new” Annapurna circuit trail that avoids roads?

    Despite some rumors, there isn't a “new” Annapurna Circuit Trek. It is the same Annapurna Circuit Trek that it always has been. In some parts, trekkers will be walking on the road and in other parts, trekkers will be walking on a trail.

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking.
