Jarle Raimon and Felicity Holden
Manaslu trekking

Jarle raimon age 66 and his wife Felicity holden age 62 from New Zealand had Manaslu trekking through Larke Pass (5215)m arranged by trekking company "Glacier Adventure company Pvt Ltd.

We left from Arughat on 29th September 2011 and 15 wonderful days trekking up the Bhudi Gandaki river valley before crossing Larka pass and then descending down to Besi Shahar. There was breathtaking Scenerary on every day of the thek particularly at high altitude.The nature of this region and perhaps the time of year we choose to go meant that none of the facilities were of over bundened and we found there was a relatively small number of other trekkers.

Throughout the trek we received wonderful Support and advice from ou guide Ghoman and had the assistance of 2 vey Competent and pleasant porters.We can speak very highly of this agency its organsisation and the personal touch. We would recommend Glacier Adventues to anyone.
