    Hi there me and my dad who is 68 and a friend did the EBC with helicopter return with these guys. They did an amazing job from start to finish, the owner Shiba is a gentleman. Are guide Basanta was a local who knew everything about the area and was outstanding in keeping us safe at high altitudes by checking are oxygen levels regularly. We all made it to base camp and all great. The food was great we were vegetarian for are time there, I found this company on the internet, and Lifehimalyatrekking provided an unbelievable experience for our group!
