Clients Reviews

Excellent trekking tour Gokyo Ri

(5/5)

After serveal trekking tours in Nepal (alone and with friends) Life Himalaya Trekking organised a tour to Gokyo Ri for our group. The service was absolut great. Beginning with the pick up at the airport and the organisation of the whole tour (plan for the daily treks, selection and reservation of the lodges for the tour, guide and porters) there was no open question. We got a lot of information before the tour from Shiba and also during the tour from our guide. 
Life Himalaya Trekking is not a big agency, but i think this is big advantage. Personal contact in the preparation of the tour and high flexibility are very advantageous.
Allthogether - perfect
