ABC trek, Awesome!! Highly recommend!!

Quote   My first OE experience on a guided trek and I was not disappointed. With Tilak as our guide and Ganesh our porter we had the best 11 day trek ever. Tilak has wealth of knowledge and experience and is always on hand for any questions. His 15years in the business assures you of that, and Tilaks judgement on times to the next destination is fantastic. Very handy info when your legs are tired or the weather is unpredictable. Aside from the amazing scenery you also get a view into the Nepalese culture on this trek and meet some cool people on the way. If you are considering any trekking in Nepal, I would highly recommend you get in contact with Glacier Adventure Company and Tilak. Thanks again Tilak and I wish you the very best for the coming years ahead.

Kind regards

“Great guide and amazing trekking in the mountains of Nepal”

Quote   We had a fabulous trek: Annapurna Base Camp 4130m, including Poon Hill. Tilak was our guide. His knowledge of the track, the mountain names and heights was great. He has been a guide over 15 years, so we felt safe and well informed. His English is really good and he us very prompt at replying by email. Ganesh was our porter and he did a great job carrying our pack. I definitely recommend this company for trekking in Nepal. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip.


“Everest View Trek - BEST Decision of my life!!!!”

Quote   I decided I wanted to see Everest and my friends thought I was crazy. Another friend actually recommended Glacier Adventure Company to me and after seeing her incredible photos from the trip - I had to see it for myself!.

I travelled with 3 other girlfriends and was a little nervous in the lead up. However, I knew I was about to embark on something great when we were picked up from the airport by the warm and friendly Tilak (owner of the company, himself). We were all welcomed with a marigold garland and from the minute we were picked up we were looked after so well!!

We chose to do the Everest View Trek and boy did we received fantastic value for money. From the minute we landed, all our accommodation and pretty much all of our meals were covered (we never went hungry!) which meant that the only spending money we needed was for personal souvenirs.

After a day of sight-seeing in Kathmandu City we flew to Lukla - a town at the foot of the mountains and made our way up through beautiful sceneries and wonderful little villages. The trek itself was incredible - I knew the pictures were amazing but seeing it first hand was breathtaking and I urge everyone to visit the Himalayas at least once in their life.

Tilak has over 15 years of experience and knows the region like the back of his hand. He was an excellent guide to us and made the trip even more memorable with his knowledge and kindness. Everything was so well organised and we were allowed to travel at our own pace!

I haven't stopped raving about the trip to all my friends and will definitely be back to complete another Trek in Nepal with Glacier Adventure Company!!!!

Everest Base camp and Kalapathar Trek May 2013

Quote   I have just returned from Everest Base camp Trek with Glacier Adventure Company owned by Mr. Tilak, it was memorable and unforgettable experience I had. My Tilak himself came as a guide for me because I was going alone. I was very happy the whole trek, thanks to Tilak and team and wish them to continue the same service.

“Excellent guides for Trekking in Nepal”

Quote   I recently returned from Nepal absolutely buzzing! I have just had a trip of a lifetime. I have travelled many places in my life but this trip was definitely (along with my African trip) the best! I completed the Annapurna Base Camp trek with Tilak and his team, which took 11 days at a fairly easy-going pace.

What an incredible hike, different scenery everyday! From little mountain villages with Nepalese and Tibetan goods been sold to rhododendron forests in full pink and red bloom, to stunning snow covered mountains. The weather was sensational (apart from one day of rain and one crazy hail storm) hot during the days and cooler at night (April).

Tilak's team were incredibly organised. We paid up front and could not fault what we recieved along the way. Here was I thinking I'd be eating dal for the length of my trip!... Well I was wrong! - The tea houses produced all sorts of different cuisine. The menu was full of delicious options - no one went hungry! The accommodation was always clean, comfortable and hospitable. Transport was always on time and efficient

Tilak's knowledge of the area and different sections of the track was faultless. Even his timing of how long to the next stop were within just a couple of minutes of his estimate!

He has a great sense of humour - as did our strong porters - who carried our gear along the way. Although his business is new his experience in the industry is vast.

If you're looking for a friendly, trustworthy, knowledgeable and organised company to help make your trip a once in a lifetime - then get in touch with Glacier Adventure Company - based in Kathmandu. You wont regret it.

“An experience you cannot miss”

Quote   Trekking through the Himalayas with Tilak and his crew is a fun, cultural, off-the-beaten-path experience that you cannot miss if you are going to visit Nepal. Wether you want to live luxuriously all the way up the trail or sleep in tents and experience the real feel of mountaineering, Tilak is the man to arrange a trekk for you.


“Eine ganz besondere Reise”

Quote   Unsere trekking Tour mit Glacier Adventure Company von Mitte Oktober bis Anfang November 2103 war etwas ganz Besonderes. Angefangen vom Empfang am Flughafen, der Aufenthalt im Hotel mit persönlicher Betreuung (Stadtrundfahrt und Besichtigungen, Welcome und Farewell dinner) bis zur individuellen Tour von Lukla nach Gokyo und zurück. Tilak bemüht sich sehr, die Wünsche seiner Kunden zu erfüllen und kümmert sich persönlich darum, dass alles klappt. Unser guide bei der trekking tour und der porter waren ausgeszeichnet und wir haben uns immer sehr gut betreut gefühlt und empfehlen Ihn gerne weiter.

"A very special trip"

Quote   Our trekking tour with Glacier Adventure Company from mid-October to early November 2103 was very special. Starting with the reception at the airport, stay in the hotel with personal care (city tour and sightseeing, Welcome and Farewell dinner) to individual tour from Lukla to Gokyo and back. Tilak is working hard to meet the needs of its customers and personally sees to it that everything works. Our guide at the trekking tour and the porter were fully characterized and we have always felt very well looked after us and recommend him gladly.


Daniel HarwadMera Peak Climbing

Quote   This was my second trip to Nepal to trek and climb. Both times I had the trip organized and guided by the Glacier Adventure Company ( with Tilak Shestra. Both times the trip was most excellent because of him. In October 2012 my daughter and I climbed Mera Peak and made the south summit. Tilak was there by our side most of the time and made sure all of our needs were met. I may come back one more time to do Island Peak and if I do I will again use Tilak and the Glacier Adventure Company.

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking

Quote   In April my daughter and a friend, my husband and I completed the Annapurna Base Camp 11 day trek which Glacier Adventure Company organised. We were privileged to have Tilak, the Managing Director, accompany us as personal guide. Tikal is a very experienced guide and trek organiser and we were extremely happy with the way he organised our trip. We had 2 competent porters who carried our gear and Tilak booked comfortable guest houses ahead, which gave us manageable distances to walk each day, so we acclimatised without problems as our altitude increased.

Although my husband and I had been on many treks before in Nepal, we had never been to Annapurna Base Camp. We wanted my daughter and friend to experience reaching the high mountains in the relatively short time frame of days we had available. This trek proved to do exactly that and took us up through the delightful mountain villages on the way. We started at Naya Pul, walked up to Ulleri then on to Ghorepani ( and Poon Hill), through the rhododendron forests to Thadapani, on to Chomrong, Doban, Machhapuchare Base Camp and comfortably made it to 4,120mtrs at Annapurna Basecamp on the 7th day. We were treated to spectacular mountain scenery, with the many high peaks clearly in view both on the way up, and at Base Camp. We completed our round trip via Ghandruk. Altogether this was a most enjoyable and worthwhile 11 day trek.

We can thoroughly recommend Tilak and Glacier Adventure Company to organise a trek. Tilak's wealth of experience and cheerful and considerate manner will ensure that your trek in Nepal will be a wonderful experience.

Ghorepani, poonhill Treks

Quote   I cannot speak highly enough of Glacier Adventure Company and especially of Mr Tilak Shestra, the Managing Director and sometimes guide. I have known Tilak for more than ten years and have used his services on three separate occasions, as guide on the Annapurna Circuit Trek and ABC Trek and most recently on the Poon Hill Trek with my wife and eight year old daughter. The professionalism and courtesy is unsurpassed, from the moment you are greeted at the airport to the time you have to say goodbye.

Glacier Adventure Company's offices are in Thamel and easy to find, they will organise everything from hotels and flights to trekking and expedition planning, they will discuss all available options and accommodate any changes to your itinerary. The guides and porters are extremely knowledgeable and your safety is their number one priority. It is their absolute level of service which is so special, whether it be a five day trek or a full on expedition, to use Glacier Adventure will be the best decision you are likely to make.

Peter Bird and family.

Jarle Raimon and Felicity HoldenManaslu trekking

Quote   Jarle raimon age 66 and his wife Felicity holden age 62 from New Zealand had Manaslu trekking through Larke Pass (5215)m arranged by trekking company "Glacier Adventure company Pvt Ltd.

We left from Arughat on 29th September 2011 and 15 wonderful days trekking up the Bhudi Gandaki river valley before crossing Larka pass and then descending down to Besi Shahar. There was breathtaking Scenerary on every day of the thek particularly at high altitude.The nature of this region and perhaps the time of year we choose to go meant that none of the facilities were of over bundened and we found there was a relatively small number of other trekkers.

Throughout the trek we received wonderful Support and advice from ou guide Ghoman and had the assistance of 2 vey Competent and pleasant porters.We can speak very highly of this agency its organsisation and the personal touch. We would recommend Glacier Adventues to anyone.

Yala peak climbingYala peak climbing

Quote   We left in Syabru Besi to Start our Trekking Though the Langtang Valley. Thought it was September, The Weather gave us Some sun at least a few hours per day. Three days and some tea houses later we arrived in Kyang Gompa at 3850m. We acclimatized one day, before we went to the Base camp at 4800m.We did Tsjerko Ri(5000m) as an exercise for Yala peak the 6th day was "The day" for us. Yala peak was to be Conquered by two Belgians. Our Sherpa Pimba who was about our age, Showed us the way.

We climbed the slippery Rocks at 2:00am in the dark.

We Reached the base of the Glacier at 7:00am, Just a little after sunrise.

The last 400m of our journey It was snowing but no problem for the young Belgians

Yala peak was Conquered !

We thank Glacier Adventure and Especially tilak, kaji and Pimba for arranging the trip with the necessary permits so well.
