    Shiba and his guides did a great job of ensuring that our group of eight had all the necessary accommodations (and more) to make our trip an unforgettable one. Life Himalaya Trekking is a reputable and responsible organization and I would highly recommend hiring them for the EBC trek.

    We started looking for tour company’s on the net to take us to Everest Base Camp, we got in touch with Life Himalaya Trekking because of their detailed description of the trek on their website and the fact that they gave back to the local communities.

    From the moment we made contact, Shiba (the owner) responding pretty much instantly and was able to answer any question we had. When we arrived in Kathmandu, the team were at the airport to met us and take us to our accommodation. Everyone at Life Himalayan Trekking has been amazing to deal with and after talking to Shiba we decided to extend our trek to include the Pikey Peak trail and walk to Lukla rather than fly.

    This was the best decision we made, the trek to Lukla was actually our favorite part of the whole trip and we would never have even thought about it without Shiba’s guidance.

    We want to give a huge shout out to Kieran and Sabot, our guides, who where totally professional and caring throughout our trip. I would not have been able to make the 230+ kms we trekked over 18 days without their support and guidance

    I highly recommend this company! Shiba Took excellent care of us throughout our entire trip and even accommodated us with the hotel room our last day so we can get ready and fly out without worry. Our guys did an amazing job in motivating us and getting us through our daily hikes. We were accommodated with the best lodges that were available the entire time which made the entire experience much more enjoyable. Thank you Shiba and his team for an experience of a lifetime!!!

    We went to trek to Everest base camp in June and went with Life Himalaya. From the owner, Shiba, to the guides to the porters everyone was extremely friendly and helpful and made our experience amazing! They were so hospitable and really went above and beyond to make our journey to base camp the best it could be. The lodges they booked were the best you could probably get and for a really affordable price! Shiba took us out for lunch and booked a hotel room for us for us the day we got back so that we could shower before our flights. He didn’t have to do that at all. The best part of this company is that a portion of the profits made go to the rural villages of Nepal to help build schools, get medical aid, etc! I highly recommend going with them, I don’t think anyone does it better than them!!

    Life Himalaya organized the absolute best tour for all 8 of us. We all made it and were all impressed with how smooth the entire trek and helicopter ride was planned. The guides and accommodations exceeded expectations. The owner of the company Shiba took care of us personally to ensure all our troubles along the way would be minimized. I would highly recommend booking through life Himalaya and if you don’t you are making a mistake! I know I will be back. Thank you life Himalaya for everything!
