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.
