Review

Felicity Holden and Jarle Raimon
Annapurna Base Camp Trekking

 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.
