Great Trekking Experience

I did the ABC Trek with them. It was a great trekking experience. We only had 12 days, so we customized their 14-day trip to make it a 12-day trek to Annapurna. The company had everything organized carefully, and the trip was very well executed. Ram, the guide, was very helpful throughout the whole trek. Thank you, Ram.

This Was By Far One Of Best Services

This was by far one of the best services I'd gotten. The trip was super challenging and super rewarding all at once! Sanjib and Ram were both excellent and knowledgeable. We trekked to Annapurna Base Camp in November, and it was by far our best trekking experience. They were also incredibly caring, which is important when you are trekking to high altitudes where you have never been before. They always ask how we feel and always check our pulses. Thank you for caring for us throughout the trek. I highly recommend using Heaven Himalaya for any hikes in Nepal.

Amazing Post-COVID EBC Trek

Thank You for making our post-COVID EBC trek amazing. The guides, porters, and Mr. Ram did a great job from the beginning of our COVID test at a hotel in Kathmandu till our farewell in a restaurant in Thamel. We were at our own pace and never hurried. We felt safe and immensely enjoyed our Nepal vacation. With heaven Himalaya, nothing goes wrong. I highly recommend them to other travelers who will book Mt. Everest Base Camp Trek.
