About us

I was born in the remote village of Satyadevi in Dhading district of Nepal. I finished school level from Shree Bachhaladevi, higher secondary school in his own village. After finishing high school, I came to Kathmandu to join a college of Geography and travel/tourism, this also sparked my interest in trekking. Firstly, I started trekking as a porter and then I eventually became a guide. I used to work as a manager for 2 different companies, with my hard work, I am now the founder of my own company: Life Himalaya trekking!

I have been working in the trekking field since 1992. I have many years of experience in this sector. So, my friends, family and my fellow trekkers suggested that it was time to start my own company. I know how to treat my guests and how to give them the ultimate experience, my motto being “Serving my guests is like serving God”.

I speak multiple languages like English, German, Hindi, Nepali and another other 5 different local languages. I am a seasoned traveler myself, having traveled to different countries like Austria, Germany, Croatia, Slovenia, Italy and many others!

I have the experience of trekking these famous routes in the Everest region (Everest base camp trek alone more than 50 times) Annapurna Region, Langtang region, Manaslu Region, Ganesh Himal region, Makalu region, Kanchanjunga Region, Dolpo Region and many other hidden trekking routes. I am not only a good trekking guide but also an excellent climber. I have been to many famous trekking peaks like Mera peak (6,476 m in 1999), island peak (6,189 m in 2000), Yala peak (5,700 m in 2001) and many more!

I am not only interested in trekking sector, I am also a kind hearted, positive and helpful person. Because of this, I am now the president of Ganesh Himal Community Foundation. I donate the profits from Life Himalaya to the Ganesh Himal Community Foundation, this to help rebuild the earthquake damaged schools in the remote areas of Nepal, helping many livelihood projects.

I am an enthusiastic tourism entrepreneur, fully devoted to social work, an energetic person who, has a lot of experience in trekking, peak climbing and servicing Nepal Travellers. I love meeting people and travelling!

An wonderful experience on EBC trek with Helicopter for return journey

I recently visited Everest Base Camp (EBC) and it was all credit to the Life Himalaya Trekking company. The proprietor of the company, Shiba, is very knowledgeable and humble and provided me with all the information before I booked my trip. After I landed in Kathmandu, I was received by my Guide, Birsha and who took me to my hotel where I spent a night before embarking on the trek. The next morning we took an early morning flight to Lukla which is the starting point for the track. After 25 minutes of flight, we landed at Lukla Airport where I met my porter, Robin. During the trek, we stayed in tea houses which are very basic hotels with dining facility. All teahouses had a common dining room where you would spend time in evening with other trackers around a wood stove or electric heater. First 3 nights we had an attached bathroom but after that all teahouses had common bathroom facility. My guide Birsha was a very soft spoken, helpful, knowledgeable and experienced about the trek. When I was at my weakest during the day on a hard climb, he would be standing right behind me where I could feel his hand on my back, making sure that I don’t tumble down the cliff. He would make sure I had enough water for the track. He would suggest the food for lunches & dinner that would be best for the track. He would bring the food & drinks to me and eat after I had my meal, a tradition in Nepal that you are suppose to eat after your guests. Basically, he would take care of all my needs to make me as comfortable as he can during the track. While mentioning Birsha, I cannot forget my porter Robin, who was a young lad with a smile on his face all the time and reached the daily destination in half the time then me, making sure that we have accommodations for the night. I loved the overall EBC experience with Life Himalaya Trekking and have made lifetime memories and lifelong friends.

Unforgettable experience!! I believe you can spend thousands on these sorts of expeditions but that doesn’t always buy the care and attention we received from the Life Himalaya Trekking team. Absolutely priceless!! From the second we landed everything was arranged, someone was waiting to pick us up at the airport and they stayed by our side throughout the whole trip to ensure we had everything we needed at all times. We never waited for anything, they made sure we enjoyed every minute of trip. I had exceptions, but Life Himalaya completely exceeded them. Ask for Birsha and Rabin!!
