    We have known Shiba for 6 years. He is the Owner/Operator of this business with over 15 years of experience in the trekking in Nepal. As a family of 4 or just my wife and I we have done the Annapurna Panorama, Poonhill, Langtang Valley, Tamang Heritage and Gosaikunda treks with Shiba or his many experienced and knowledgeable staff. He will supply quotes over the net very quickly. We made so many changes but never felt it was a problem for Shiba to keep requoting. Shiba is not all about making money, he’s more concerned that your trip is everything you want and developing long term relationships. We will only ever use Shiba’s Company when we go trekking in Nepal because we trust him and his Company.
