    Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar
    Unforgettable experience!! I believe you can spend thousands on these sorts of expeditions but that doesn’t always buy the care and attention we received from the Life Himalaya Trekking team. Absolutely priceless!! From the second we landed everything was arranged, someone was waiting to pick us up at the airport and they stayed by our side throughout the whole trip to ensure we had everything we needed at all times. We never waited for anything, they made sure we enjoyed every minute of trip. I had exceptions, but Life Himalaya completely exceeded them. Ask for Birsha and Rabin!!

    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!!!

    Best Trekking Company in Nepal
    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

    Great organization
    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.
