Shiva Excursion led my first trek in Nepal. Being new to traveling, I was extremely pleased with their hospitality helping us get settled in Kathmandu. Arjun picked our group up from the airport, took us to dine at the finest restaurant in the city and arranged all of our travel plans far in advance. Traveling through Annapurna was breathtaking and we had no troubles on the trail thanks to the expert advice of our guides. While there are many companies to choose from, Shiva Excursion took great care of us…

My maiden trekking trip was from Lukla to Namche. I was guided througout the journey by Arjun. He was very patient, supportive and helpful. He knew that as a first time trekker, I need all the support and assistance to ensure that I complete this journey without any glitches and enjoy it.

My experience with shiva excursions was unforgettable. Arjun went above and beyond to make our trek to Annapurna base camp special - he even bought me a cake on my birthday! Shiva excursions is not just another trekking company, it's like a family and I would highly recommend to anyone looking to travel the Himalayas.

I went on a ten day trek to Annapurna base camp with my friends and it was incredible. Arjun, Sudip, and our sherpas made the trek an experience we'll never forget. We went during monsoon season in July, which is also another reason why it was so special. Even with all the rain and clouds, the sky would clear up for us at some point every day. Our trekking crew showed incredible strength with how much they carried on their backs and the positive, uplifting attitude they had the whole…

Great guide service. Arjun never limited us on the food we could order, unlike some guides which limit you to one dish per meal. They were also extremely flexible with the schedule and would be open to making days longer when we felt ready to trek more and cutting days short when the joints started to act up. His cheerful spirit also kept things positive even during the hardest of monsoon rains. Unlike many guides, he would tell us about the day to come and what to expect. He warned…

Our group had such an incredible experience despite trekking in the rainy season, and Arjun and all the porters had a lot to do with that. We were given above and beyond service, and were treated like close friends by all the staff, who were all super friendly and fun to be around. Compared to the experiences of other groups we saw on the mountain, we felt like we got exceptional value for our money. Arjun is the man!

Hello Arjun, here is my review. Arjun provided the most amazing Annapurna base camp experience we could have asked for. Our group consisted of seven Americans who had a wide range of hiking experience and capabilities. Arjun and team regularly went above and beyond expectations to make us feel safe and comfortable. Our group experienced every ailment from fever and colds to swollen bug bites and countless leeches. The team of guides and porters carried a medication for everything that was thrown at us. I could not be happier with…

I met Arjun in 2000 when I travelled through Nepal together with my husband. By that time Arjun was working as a trekking and/or porter-guide in Pokhara. He guided us through the Annapurna Mountains and even carried our backpack for six days.  We enjoyed our hike with him very much! Arjun is a very friendly and reliable person. He was unobtrusively, but nevertheless also very helpful with every question and point we had. We absolutely trusted him. Although he was still very young in 2000, his English was good and…

“We give our highest recommendation to Shiva Excursions. We took two trips with Arjun Nepal in the Annapurna and Everest regions. He was fantastic. He organized every detail of our experience and not only helped fulfill our dream trip, he provided us with fascinating glimpses of culture and history. In the end, we spent more than three weeks with him. He treated everyone with respect and consideration including the porters (which he called guides in training), the villagers, and other tourists and guides on the trail. We felt completely safe,…
