Review

Jarle Raiman
Trekking in Nepal

My wife and I have been to Nepal many times. Over the past years Glacier Adventure have provided several treks for us and family members, including Manaslu, Annapurna Base Camp, and Helambu, all of which have been a most enjoyable experience. We can recommend the professional service that Tilak provides and the security one feels when trekking in these magnificent mountains with a guide who is knowlegable and experienced such as Tilak.
