    good trip with amazing experience. But there are two booking centers in the meeting point, it would be better if clear which one is correct in my personal opinion.

    Wonderful experience! Max, our guide, is experienced, funny and helpful. The view from the glacier is stunning. The hike is gruesome and tiring but definitely worth it. I would strongly recommended this activity if you have moderate fitness.

  • SHIHHAO 3 Dec 2018
    Very worthwhile to participate in the event, from dawn to dark, any equipment can be borrowed (paying) the guide is very careful and explains everything, let us have fun on the glacier, the only thing to note is Because it takes a long time, it is best to carry the relevant water and food.

    It’s about three to four hours to actually walk on the glacier, and it’s a worthwhile trip!
