    Must hire this company!!

    We went to trek to Everest base camp in June and went with Life Himalaya. From the owner, Shiba, to the guides to the porters everyone was extremely friendly and helpful and made our experience amazing! They were so hospitable and really went above and beyond to make our journey to base camp the best it could be. The lodges they booked were the best you could probably get and for a really affordable price! Shiba took us out for lunch and booked a hotel room for us for us the day we got back so that we could shower before our flights. He didn’t have to do that at all. The best part of this company is that a portion of the profits made go to the rural villages of Nepal to help build schools, get medical aid, etc! I highly recommend going with them, I don’t think anyone does it better than them!!
