    The journey organized by Shiba was a mix of trekking in the Langtang valley and volunteering in the villages. It was a very beautiful and meaningful experience, where we admired the natural and historical beauties of Nepal, but also we had the opportunity of living and knowing the locals. Shiba’s organization was impeccable. We returned to Italy with a beautiful memory of this experience and the desire to return to Nepal.

    This was my second trek in Nepal, again with the great personal touch from Shiba at Life Himalaya trekking.

    This time I choose the Langtang trek, an area that was hit badly in the 2015 earthquake, but is now back up and running and really needs the tourist numbers to return.

    The scenery was of course stunning, and I feel there is more of an authentic experience of Nepalese mountain life than some of the bigger more commercial treks available.

    As ever, Shiba was on hand to deliver a flexible itinerary and offered his own advice and knowledge on what would be best to do and visit.

    This personal and flexible approach is key for me; as is the fact that Life Himalaya works in conjunction with a local charity (The Ganesh Himal Foundation) in delivering improvements in education and facilities for rural Nepalese people.

    I hope to use Life Himalaya many more times in the future.

    And again, I would strongly advise that you consider the Langtang trekking region.

    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.
