Write a Review

Chandra took my wife and I to Everest BC from Jiri. We had little to no experience trekking prior to this, and were quite nervous. Chandra let us set our own pace, all the while giving us just enough guidance such that we stayed on schedule and on trail. Many a times we would be quietly called off the main trail to see some spectacular view that you would not know about unless you had a skilled guide like Chandra. Chandra knows many residents along main routes of hundreds of treks, and will be able to mobilize help if it is needed. I recommend Glacier Nepal treks very highly. they have a skilled, safe, and accessible guide.
