Review

Dr Kannan Pethaperumal
Everest Base camp and Kalapathar Trek May 2013

 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.
