    Paradise in Nepal
    Annapurna Base Camp felt like a paradise. The mountains, the views, and hot coffee were extraordinary. I fancied the helicopter ride the views that came with it. We took off at the perfect time, and the weather was supportive of us as well. We marveled at the varied landscapes of Nepal and then rejoiced the views of Machhapuchhre, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. The trip was terrific, and so were the services from Himalayan Glacier.

    Excellent Service
    I would recommend others to plan their trip to Nepal with Himalayan Glacier. I recently booked a day tour to Annapurna Base Camp in a helicopter with Himalayan Glacier and the overall service was excellent. I had really good time there. Tea at the Annapurna Base Camp was the best thing on the whole trip.

    Awe-inspiring views from Annapurna B.C
    Annapurna Base Camp was always on my travel list but never could gather up the courage to trek all the way to the base camp. This year I finally ticked it off after reaching the base camp and back in a helicopter. The ride was amazing as we enjoyed the marvelous views of the Himalayas. Thank you Himalayan Glacier for making it perfect.
