Review

Harward Daniel
Mountain Adventures

I have been to Nepal twice for mountain adventures. The first was for Kala Pattar and Everest base camp. They second was for Mera Peak. Both times I used Tilak, the owner of Glacier Adventure. Both trips were excellent because of his help and caring. I might return for one more trip (Island Peak or Annapurna) and if I do I will use him again
