“Would do it all over again”

Quote   A friend recommended Glacier adventure to me, she said many good things about it. I did the everest base camp trek and it was amazing, the group i went with was small (only 3 others) but Tilak also gave me the option of doing a solo trek with no extra cost. The Porters and Tilak's son were very helpful, i would have not made it through the whole journey without them. I would have liked to stay at base camp for a longer period (we only stayed there for about 15 minutes) but another member of our group was unwell. overall, I would highly recommend glacier adventure, everyone was very accommodating and flexible which made the journey more pleasant :)
