As we had done plenty of research and compared many trekking companies based on price, reviews and recommendations, we found that Icicles stood among them as they were focused on providing better service rather than just getting the booking which reflected while corresponding with them in email. Quick reply on our enquiries and best value for money price impressed us hence we chose Icicles as our trekking partner.
They also helped us in getting sleeping bags at Namche as one of my friend missed his at Kathmandu. At every point of our trip, our trekiking guide Parbat made us feel like we were of one single family trekking to base camp of Everest. I should also mention that Icicles provided us down jacket to every members to which we had to return them after the trip. We also found good accommodation along the trails even at high season without much fuss as we had seen few foreigners sleeping outside at dining hall due to shortage of room in lodges.
Finally big thanks to Icicles and entire team who helped us making this trip a successful one and ensuring our safety. From our expereince we found that Icicles is run by professionals and they simply know best in what they do. So, all the folks out there, remember Icicles and contact Hari, if you are planning adventure in Nepal Himalayas.
We completed our Everest base camp trek along with group of 8 friends. We chose Icicles as we were provided plenty of information as soon as we had any queries. Quick response time, quality services, experienced trekking guide, they made this challenging trip an enjoyable experiences. We get to know about local culture, tradition and description.
Therefore we would like to thank all Icicles team, specially, Indira, Hari and Shiva with whom we met and made our exiciting EBC trip a successful one. From domestic flight arrangements to Lukla to tea houses and restaurants and accommodation in Kathmandu, all of our trekking needs were fulfilled.
Our comfortability, well beings, health and safety all were properly taken care of. Shiva has told that it will be completely different experience during autumn, as snowfalls and different views, we are planning to return back to Himalayas this October too. Lets see, what happens, but if I return, then no doubt I will go with Shiva and Icicles adventure.
Me and 6 of my friends joined Everest base camp trek with Icicles Adventure this March 2017. Hari, the director of the company, and Indira helped us from planning, organizing and also in preparing for this mission Everest. My friend Hari and guides Shiva were very helpful and didn’t hesitate to answer any of our questions. Icicles team were always there to make our Everest Trek a successful adventure.
Our trip leader Shiva, Parbat and porter team including Prakash were very friendly and helped us getting in accommodation as well as food on our plate. They were very knowledgable and had good connections with lodge owners. Special thanks to Shiva for getting my phone charged at Lobuche freely. He was professional in briefing the next day’s plan and also took care of every of our group members.
I will surely pass a good word as recommendation to my friend circle about Icicles. They are very good in customer service at very competitive rates.
Everest base camp trek was there in my mind since my early days in school. I knew that it was no any easy task , but thanks to Icicles Adventure who gave me great experienced trip leader to take care and my necessities during this adventure. All the things went according to our planned itinerary, there were no any flight delays, I had well prepared by joing small trips in my home country, which helped me a lot to hike at higher altitudes without much issue. Yes, I had headache at Gorakshep, but good information from my guide helped me to get out of it, as we hiked Kalapathher and had Garlic soup. Then next day EBC, wow, finally I did EBC, Yay! It was my great achievement and dream come true moment.
We had a great Everest base camp trek with Icicles Adventure this spring season. Our trekking days were full of exciting adventures with few surprises as well. All of our trekking needs were taken care of and I must say that trekking guides and other team took a very good care of us including accommodation, meals and other needs. Specially, we are very thankful to Mr. Hari Shrestha for a great job who has manage everything from hotels, hospitality and trekking management. Now as I have successfully completed this EBC trek, I am planning to go for ABC trek this coming September with Icicles. I will recommend Icicles for other travelers looking for quality services too.
My trip to Nepal and Everest Base Camp started, as i received a offer on a 12 trek to EBC from Icicles Adventures. I read about them here on trip advisor. And it all sounded good.From my start at Kathmandu airport, to the end i felt in good hands of Hari, He met me on arrival, help me settling in to my hotel attended to my needs of a sim-card. We arranged a meet the next day to talk about the trip and meet my guide Surya.The EBC trek was a wonderful experience and a great adventure (can recommend). Surya my guide was a great companion on this trek, despite my slow moment (really hard walking in the heights)and a minor snowstorm, we made it to Everst Base Camp and back. Surya made me feel safe and in good hands the whole way, hes calm and gentle sprite makes him a good and stable guide with a nice smile on hes lips at all times. When ever we arrived at a tea lodge, i would have a room with in minutes and he was all ways attentive of my needs. Surya really made my dream come thru about the EBC Trek.Upon arrival at Kathmandu, i had a few days to spend, Hari arranged a city-tour for me to see the most important landmarks, more of plight than lust, but i had a terrific day and can recommend if you like being cultural.All in all i had a great time in Nepal Thanks to Surya, Hari and icicles adventure treks.So i can really recommend this tour operator for your Nepal experience.
I did trekking to Gokyo Ri in the Everest region. I am a female traveling alone and I wanted to travel with a female guide. I saw many female solo trekkers traveling with male guides and I think it is perfectly safe to trek with a male guide, but I thought I would feel more comfortable during my trip with a female guide. Fortunately Icicle Adventure was able to organize Gokyo Ri trek for me with an awesome female guide Chola.Everything in my trip was smooth. Although I decided to travel to Nepal about 5 days before my departure date, they were able to organize everything in a very timely manner.I highly recommend the Gokyo Ri trek. The view at the top of Gokyo Ri was probably the best scenery that I have ever seen. Also there were fewer people on the trek since most people go to EBC and I could feel some solitude on the trails. My guide and I even went up to Gokyo Ri twice. We first hiked up in the afternoon and it became cloudy around the time we almost reached the top, so we came down. We tried again very early morning (5am) at the next day and the weather was perfect! We hang around at the top for about an hour to enjoy the panorama of the highest mountains in the world.Fortunately all my Lukla flights took off without delays and I had two nights left after we came back from trekking. Since I already have done a Kathmandu tour from my previous Nepal trip I wanted to do Chitwan safari. Again Icicles Adventure was able to organize my Chitwan trip in an hour after I landed at Kathmandu. Chitwan safari was a lot of fun too. I saw rhinos in my elephant safari.
I just returned from Everest base camp trek that I had booked with Icicles Adventure. I had met Hari who helped us with securing the trip with all necessary arrangements required to reach Everest base camp.After leaving behind Dingboche, while we had our lunch at Thukla and started to ascend steep hill towards Lobuche, altitude sickness affected us and my condition worsened as the time passes. I was sick and next day our trekking guide Parbat called for air rescue from Lobuche.I was airlifted off the Himalayas along with other fellow patients to Lukla first then towards Kathmandu within an hour for emergency treatment. It was nice of Hari that he already arrived at the hospital prior us. He also helps us getting examined, and admitted for two days. To say incredible services par excellence, I was immediately rescued from higher elevations and was in hospital and I am thankful that I had travel insurance that will cover my airlift and medical services. Therefore, for every individual looking for Everest base camp trek, I will recommend to get travel insurance compulsory and remember Icicles Adventure treks for good connections and great services.Hari should be called manager of the year in my opinion as hemanaged everything from our trek, rescue to international flight tickets.Thank you.
A father of two, hiking with two angels, I became hikes as I see my children happiest while traveling around the world and this time it was Everest base camp trek. To start the things off I started to enquire quite a few trekking companies in Nepal. With continuous no time zone continuous correspondence with Indira, we finally booked our trip with Icicles adventure.I comfortably arrived at Kathmandu airport and the views were amazing, I saw Hari welcoming us with garland and taking us to our Hotel Woodland. We also met our trekking guide Prakash after flying from Kathmandu to Lukla along with porter Bishnu. I can only say good things about these two Icicles members. They were always on the good mood with good sense of humor. Bishnu was strong and always walked ahead of us while Prakash used to come with us. Prakash also helped me know the name of snow capped Himalayas, the villages, culture and tradition of local inhabitants.Every walking day was challenging yet rewarding adventure while heading towards Everest Base Camp. The toughest day at least for me was evening hike to Kalapathher for awesome sunset views over Everest Himalayas. I simply couldn’t stop the tears of joy falling through my eyes as I saw the panoramic views of grand Nuptse infront and Everest at background.It was my bad luck that I got headache, but the suggestions from Prakash to have garlic soup and continue to Everest base camp were super. Next day, we hiked to EBC and back to lower elevation at Pheriche. Finally after descending from Pheriche the affects of AMS came down.We celebrated our way back down to Lukla with Icicles team of Prakash and Bishnu. With wholeheardtly, I would recommend Icicles Adventure Treks for anyone looking for Nepal Himalayas.
My Everest Base Camp Trek with Icicles Team was one of a great experience which will remain in my memories in days to come. I will recommend Icicles as they will take care of everything that a prospective Everest hiker should know, from do’s to don’t and everything else.As soon as I landed on Nepal, Hari was there with garland to welcome me and he transferred me to my hotel. He proved what he said that he prefers the satisfaction and service to clients rather than just welcoming large number of foreigners. He also booked my domestic flight tickets, and ensured I had every trekking gears needed. He is a true veteran in organizing tours, treks.First, I had little hesitation to do this trek alone with a good trip leader Shiva and strong porter Prakash. This Everest base camp trek was certainly the best thing that ever happened to me. It was also the toughest yet most remarkable journey in my life. I had noticed along the trails that other trekking guides were cattling the large groups of people, giving them acetamozile(most probably) and taking to higher elevation. I am thankful that Icicles team took care of me and I am sure they are expert in organizing trip of any size in flexible and professional way. First views of Amadablam, Thamserku and Pumori were amazing. Visit to Sagarmatha National Park and seeing Everest the first time was also a memorable experience. Had excellent lunch at Everest View hotel and they knew exactly where to take the perfect pictures.It is a great feature / characteristic of a trekking company to be flexible according to need and safety of their client. Everyone has their own walking speed, stamina and interests, and Icicles team just teaches that how it should be done (oragnaized). Along the way while talking with other fellow trekkers from around the globe, they shared their thoughts that they wish to hear about Icicles beforehand. Prakash, Parbat and Shiva were always there taking care of our meals, and working seamlessly in a friendly way.Despite physical and mental challenges that we have to face at higher altitudes, my EBC trek was so great that it simply can’t be explained in words. It was more than what I had expected from views, to services, accommodation, meals, and surely a trip for you if you want to call yourself a true adventurer.
