    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

    Can’t say enough good things about these guys. Shiba, the owner, was communicative and clear before the trip; his website is thorough; our guide, Kiron, is a professional – always patient and never making us feel rushed, sharing his knowledge of the mountains and mountain culture; and our porters, Doma and Karum, looked after us splendidly at the teahouses and in-between. This is one of the coolest trips I’ve ever done!

    A great experience!!
    Birsha took myself and a friend to Annapurna Base Camp. We did the trek in 7 days and it was spectacular. The weather was clear and fresh (cold at base camp!!) Birsha was excellent on all fronts, he helped us rent the extra gear we needed and gave us tips all along the way. The whole experience was very well organised and we definitely felt in safe hands! Birsha answered all our questions from the wildlife and nature to the culture of the Nepalese people and everything in between. Prokas was our porter and a bonus we did not realise we were getting. Between the four of us we had a great week on the trails with plenty of laughs,

    Once in a lifetime experience
    My friend and I had the most amazing experience with Life Himalaya Trecking! Shiva was so helpful and accommodating when we booked with just two days notice. He answered all our questions ensured we were prepared when we arrived. Our guide Birsha was awesome! He picked us up at the airport and made sure we didn’t have to worry about anything for the whole trip. The treck itself was the best experience ever and the views were breathtaking. Reaching Basecamp at Annapurna felt like such an achievement. Our guide and porter Prakash kept us entertained along the way and provided us with lots of information about the area, local people and customs as well telling us all about Nepal’s history. We are already planning a trip back to tackle Everest Basecamp in a couple of years. Could not recommend this company enough!
