Clients Reviews

Amazing from start to finish

(5/5)

Life Himalaya provided outstanding service from start to finish!
Shiva (the owner) communicated with us perfectly in the weeks in the lead up to the trek over email, we had so many questions that he answered quickly and clearly. 
We attended the EBC short trek which included the chopper down at the end - this was the only tour company out there that we could find offering a helicopter return flight instead of the trek back down and it is 100% worth it! The guide and porters were extremely professional, keeping us updated each day on what to expect and attending to our every need at night, always concerned to make sure we were not showing signs of altitude sickness.
Additionally, Keiran (our guide) passed on lots of interesting information about Nepal and the trail as we advanced to base camp, and in the evenings every one of the staff were extremely happy to hang out with us clients and tell us about their experiences which added a lovely personal touch. 
At the end of the trek, the great service continued with Shiva meeting us to confirm our final hotel bookings and followed up with a thoughtful debrief and catch up.
I whole-heartedly recommend "Life Himalaya Trekking" to clients who are seeking the best service, real care and a whole lot of fun - Excellent value for money.

Everest Base Camp Trek

(5/5)

We chose Life Himalaya out of many tour companies, We’ve made the best choice. From start to finish, give us good advice on not to get altitude sickness, where to stop and what to avoid, etc. We successfully finished our destination without having any issues. 
This company might be new, but they are bringing 20+ years of experience in the industry which translate to affordable price with very attentive service. Shiba is like a gourmet chef with passion running his own restaurant. His tour guides are awesome and they are all local people that knows how to get around the area. Hiking up to EBC is no easy task. Can’t make prebooking in any of the stops along the way as we don’t know when our body might give up. The guide was arranging accommodations for next stop on the same day or the day before and we got pretty good places along the way. 
Even coming back with the helicopter, they booked helicopter a night before and we were picked up next day morning. 
After arriving back to Kathmandu, we were surprised by the company owner with Nepalese style dinner and celebration. 
To conclude, I’ll always remember First Himalaya as much as I would remember EBC. Give it a try for your next adventure with Shiba, you won’t be regretted. 
Here are some of our photos along the way.

Excellent trek to EBC

(5/5)

Our experience with Life Himalaya was flawless. 

Pre-planning and communication before we traveled was excellent, and ensured we were well prepared, had the right kit and were in the right shape for the trek ahead. We discussed different route options and timeframes, and Shiba created itineraries that gave us many options to suit our needs.

When we arrived in Kathmandu, our Guide Birsha and Shiba spent a generous amount of time with us discussing the trek, how to manage altiude challenges, and what was ahead. It ensured we were completely prepared for the trip.

The trek itself was incredible, with very comfortable accomodations, great food with a broad selection every meal, and brilliant guidance, knowledge and lots of fun and laughter with our guide Birsha and porter Robyn. 

Mountains are unpredictable, and only so much can be planned. With the communication from our group to the office in Kathmandu, despite circumstances changing, everything was always taken care of so we could focus on a successful trek.

We enjoyed every minute, and Life Himalaya made sure this was the case. I can't recommend this company enough.

10 Days Everest Base Camp Trek

Best Everest Base Camp Trek Ever - Helicopter back

(5/5)

Wow I'm so glad I booked with this friendly, well organized & professional company.

I chose a 9 day Everest Base Camp (ENC)Trek which takes about 6-7 days off the usual trek by getting a helicopter back the day after reaching EBC at about 5,100 meters (saving my knees). 
This trip is cheaper than you'd think as well 


My trip was part of a small 6 person group which is very personable & tailored to what you need. The Guide was well organized & great communicator & truly looked after you. Available 24 hours of you had any problems.

Life HIMALAYA company donates about 60% of it profits back into Community projects... this is a testament to Shiba & his wife... the owners.
I booked this trip from abroad & Shiba responded timely to calls & texts prior to the trip. A $200 deposit prior to going to Nepal booked my place.

Fantastic life experience and I highly recommend Life HIMALAYA Company to everyone.
