Having started from humble beginnings, it’s now been over 2 decades since we’ve been working on the trails. However, we established Life Himalaya Trekking 5 years ago, & we will never look back. These mountains we’ve walked for so long have taught us so much about life. We have carefully designed Himalaya trekking itineraries that have given our guests a sense of purpose & achievement. We have entirely focused on trips lesser known which goes off the beaten track so that our clients will enjoy knowing how great things never come from comfort zones.
So the question surely crops up as to why would you want to travel with Life Himalaya Trekking? Is so much like why YOU chose Nepal as your holiday destination among a whole lot of other countries around the globe? Read below to find out why you would choose us among others:
01. We possess a deep passion for alpine adventure and the outdoors, and with the small professional group we have on board, we’ve notched up experience that spans almost two decades. We put a lot of care into all the details when it comes to executing any of your ventures. This is due to grassroots planning with extensive research, fact-finding, and training over the years – our devotion to providing you Himalaya trekking holidays with absolute gratification, value for money and never ever compromising on your safety, come what may. This is the whole base of reasons why we established an adventure company. Because we are constantly working to perform in ways that exceed all your expectations the moment you arrive in Kathmandu.
We provide first-grade safety measures as we have experienced the heights ourselves and know what might happen if we go unprepared at high altitudes of over 6000m. Going to soaring heights is always risky, hence, we do risk assessments and make SURE our gears and equipment are fully functioning and of high quality, before it goes to you because your safety is your life, & it’s our responsibility to make sure your life is absolutely safe. We strictly follow planning and risk assessment to ensure the safety and well-being of our trekking guests journeying through the Himalayas of Nepal. We provide only A-grade excellent equipment and ensure ample time for trekkers to acclimatize since we know how high the risks are in this mountaineering business. We also provide good advice and tips on trek preparation, especially when climbing peaks in isolated regions. It’s vital for us that you go through a medical checkup before starting a journey, especially above altitudes of 4000m. We welcome you not only as our customers but so much like a family; and all of our planning, preparation and safety measures are based on this feeling the moment we meet our guests.
A limited group of adventurers makes it comfortable to travel and provides the valuable time you have allocated for the journey. The arrangement is much easier to follow, and the planning won’t be a problem to implement. There’s enough space to focus all your energy on discovering the wonders you’ve never seen before for an experience of a lifetime. At Life Himalaya Trekking, we have a group of limited personnel, just enough to provide you with the individual presence of discovering a place independently, but large enough to give you a feel of social convenience. Normally, group size varies depending on the place and means we’re traveling by, but the average size of a group is about 10 people. Over the years of experience built up, we’ve learned that this is the best number to let you connect with people you meet without feeling like you’re just another member of the group.
We’ve put years of experience and knowledge into the operations and management of treks. We organize trips in a way that helps you leave all your hours of tedious planning to us because we understand your style of travel. The smaller group you are the more united you stand, the lesser difference in opinions & this makes it easier to follow the plan; consequently, creating a strong bonding of family amongst a smaller number of people traveling together.

At Life Himalaya Trekking, by using our thorough experience gathered over the years we plan and organize tours and treks that are truly aligned with your interests and needs.

It is always important to keep in mind that when packing you should make it a bare minimum.
Your luggage should not weigh more than 15 kg (33 pounds) at the beginning of a trek. The basic equipment we provide is a Duffel bag, Sleeping bag with liner, a Down Jacket and t-shirts with a cap. Any other equipment can be hired in Thamel, a well-known Asian hub for trekkers in Kathmandu. Our recommendations are top-notch trekking outlets that provide best-grade equipment which won’t trouble you on the trails. The equipment we provide is of the highest quality to ensure your safety from the climate and rough terrain. The Duffel bag, with well-maintained group climbing gears that guarantee your safety at high altitudes, is provided by us. You can choose your equipment according to your needs, preference and duration and season of your trip, etc. A lot of these gears can be found for hire or sale in Kathmandu. Most of the gears are locally made and cheaper, some gears imported from China are of better quality. Several branded stores also provide signature equipment imported from Europe which is of a prime quality, & so is the cost.
Planet earth is an overwhelming place God created with all his heart put into it and we want to keep it that way. We have to think of the environment, and about how not to hamper nature at all costs. Sustainable travel doesn’t imply that we don’t enjoy ourselves. It means that we can have fun in a way that can be beneficial to nature, ourselves, and those around us. Life Himalaya Trekking is committed to maintaining our reliability, living by our values, and making sure we don’t stray from our principles in the course of conducting our operations. We provide our customers with practical and realistic experiences, also keeping in mind to manage treks with responsibility, and implementing the principles of sustainable development by protecting the fragile ecosystems we trek in However, these values are more than just words in a file on record; they are scripted in the culture and daily operations of all our campaigns of Himalaya trekking, throughout the Himalayas of Nepal. we also expect all of our staff and travelers to apply the principles of responsible tourism – respecting the culture, people, & local environments in the exchange of cross-cultural lifestyle, distribution of wealth, respecting each other, & also in contributing to sustainable development, where we give back more to nature than we take from it.
All members of the Life Himalaya Trekking family are thoroughly experienced and skilled in understanding the need of our customers no matter what the requirements or services are. The decades of experience and knowledge we’ve gained over time have taught us a lot about human nature and how complex it can be. Despite the human element that’s always there, we’ve surely learned what makes our customers truly happy. This knowledge has helped us to understand our guests better and hence, we go far and beyond to ensure that our guests get the best of services and we always strive to make them feel at home, so far away from the homes they come from to visit our country.
We constantly adjust our package prices according to market costs. All of our schemes and package prices are carefully and rationally determined. We provide our guests with modifications of our price if and when needed. As we like to treat our guests like family, our costs are carefully determined so that there are no extra unseen costs in our packages. You’d think with our exceptional services our charges would be high, but we ensure that our cost is the best in the market. ‘All our prices are based on clean deals without the frills’ and we provide breakdown prices when requested to show our guests what they get from what they’ve paid for, up front.

They amass vast knowledge relevant to alpine regions, on how to organize trips and all expedition operations. Added to this, our guides are also able to communicate in different languages.

Since all of our crew is passionate about what they do, they also look after & protect guests as they would do with their own families. Himalaya trekking can be risky & a monster when least expected, for such, are the vagaries of Mother Nature. The expertise they possess ensures that we are continually fine-tuning our programs while taking adventure to new heights.

We also conduct and organize MICE services for our guests and international travel agents if and when required.

It is really important that the leader of the expedition always carries a satellite phone for emergency purposes at all times. At Life Himalaya trekking, this is central to organizing trips for our clients. The high-frequency phone can also be used by guests for contacting their loved ones back home when there is a need for that.
We charge a minimum price from our guests for the use of this phone which is expensive to register with the government & maintain. On all of our trips, we also carry Emergency first-aid kits and medical supplies which are highly necessary for minor injuries that may arise during the journey. From day one of the commencement of the trek, the movements of our guests are monitored every day throughout the whole journey.
we’ve experienced it all – the highs and lows; we’ve known nature at its best and its worst. It’s so important to always be prepared when we are face-to-face with Mother Nature, in the wilderness above the timber lines. Created with immense beauty, on these mountains unpredictable calamities can hit us when least expected, hence, we have always been aware of our surroundings and the environment. We constantly keep the faith and respect the mountains while escorting our guests on its trails; for they are graceful with their beauty and purity. Despite the hardship and struggles we face in the mountains, Life Himalaya trekking’s initial start ratio has been over 80%; however, our success ratio to date has now climbed to 95% due to our sincere services & the experiences we’ve accumulated over the years. It’s been an arduous journey down the road, but we’ve hung on with grit & patience. We’ve now come a long way. We will continue to work hard to give our guests nothing less than the best…And let God do the rest for us…
