Excellent Poon Hill Trek organized by Glacier Adventure Co.

Mr. Tilak Shrestha organized and guided an excellent 5-days trek to Ghorepani Poon Hill. The trek was extremely well planned with exceptional service and advice prior to the trip. Tilak is an outstanding organizer, guide, and person. He is extremely knowledgeable, very pleasant, anticipating any problems or difficulties and providing proper solutions. We managed this rather difficult trek with no incidents mainly due to the wise planning and perfect execution of the plan.
