EBC trek would not have been the same without Life Himalaya Trekking! They were so helpful from beginning to end! From the day we arrived in Kathmandu, Prakash was with us making sure we would have the right equipment for the hike! He was very knowledgeable with altitude sickness and which foods were safe to eat! Our motto of the trip was "SAFETY FIRST"! He was so social and outgoing that we played cards every night and exchanged stories and favorite music! We completed the trek in 6 days and helicoptered down on the 7th! We also had a very warm send off from Kathmandu from Shiva himself! This was my greatest vacation yet, and I do not know any other will compare! thanks for everything!

Thank Jen L

This was my second trek in Nepal, again with the great personal touch from Shiba at Life Himalaya trekking.
This time I choose the Langtang trek, an area that was hit badly in the 2015 earthquake, but is now back up and running and really needs the tourist numbers to return.
The scenery was of course stunning, and I feel there is more of an authentic experience of Nepalese mountain life than some of the bigger more commercial treks available.
As ever, Shiba was on hand to deliver a flexible itinerary and offered his own advice and knowledge on what would be best to do and visit.
This personal and flexible approach is key for me; as is the fact that Life Himalaya works in conjunction with a local charity (The Ganesh Himal Foundation) in delivering improvements in education and facilities for rural Nepalese people.
I hope to use Life Himalaya many more times in the future.
And again, I would strongly advise that you consider the Langtang trekking region.

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.

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.

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.
