“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.
