Reviews on Annapurna Base Camp 14 Days Trek
A wonderful experience with Life Himalaya Trekking!
Shiba ensured that we had all the information we needed before the trek and was very responsive to all our queries, however big or small. From the day we arrived at the airport, we were warmly greeted by our guide Kiron. He took care of us well during our 10 day trek and shared many stories about the mountains and life in Nepal. After the trek, Shiba personally met with us to understand our experience during the trek. Everything was planned to the dot and both Shiba and Kiron were a pleasure to deal with.
Highly recommend to use this company as they are organised, super nice people and will make sure your trip is well arranged and taken care of.
Thank you Shiba and Kiron!!
With the price offered for our package, I am more than pleased to recommend this company for your trek in the Himalayas.
Every single preparation was right on the dot. From petty to major queries, Mr. Shiba (Managing Director) is able to answer them promptly. He is also able to advise accordingly based on group dynamic and request.
As for my trekking guide, Kiran, kudos to your effort in ensuring that my team had a pleasant trekking experience through the ordeal.
We were lucky to see what we wanted to see although it was just after the monsoon season. However, it wasn’t that bad at all considering fewer trekkers and plenty of room spaces in tea houses.
Appreciate everything done by Life Himalaya Trekking Pvt Ltd and allow my pictures to tell the story.
