Glacier Travel

Kiran climbed his way up from a trekking staff to a well-experienced trekking guide in West Sikkim. He is practically trained and that's extremely important when going to multiple-day treks in high altitudes. He offers very good prices for treks and takes both private small groups and big groups (up to 15 people). His prices vary according to the quality of equipment and service but the most important thing for him is the happiness of his clients.
