Wow, We had an amazing trek. This is one of our favorite experiences ever!. Shiva, our guide was a great guy with knowledge of everything; he very was informative and very responsive in the weeks prior to the trek, helping us ensure we had all that we needed. I would highly recommend Shiva as a guide for trekking in Nepal-- his experience brought a calm assurance as we ascended (and descended!) as well as amazing stories. This trek was not an easy feat, but he helped us every step of the way, and we are grateful to have had him as our guide! I would 100% recommend Shiva as your guide and Third Rock for any adventure to Nepal Himalaya. You will be in great hands, and have a marvelous time!
