They even made a cake for my birthday while on the trek. They. I couldn’t have asked for a better group to go with.”Eddie Pelka
“Shambhala Trekking made my Annapurna experience one that I’ll look fondly upon for the rest of my life. They have great guides, and went above and beyond in every facet to make sure we had a great experience. I will be using them again soon, and can’t wait to organize more adventures through them!”
“2016 was our 10th trip with Shambhala and we plan on more to come. The service is great. They are also very knowledgeable and responsible regarding the pace and what we do at altitude. We have done the Basic Everest Base Camp 5 times with them, Annapurna, Mustang and Everest Base Camp in Tibet. Every trip was great.
Thanks for a great trip.”
“We now already made 4 times a trekking that was organised by Shambala trekkings. And we hope there will come some more. We now know many guides, sherpa’s, cooks, helpers, and what the names are further. For us the function didn’t much matter, many became friends. And the personal help everybody got when he or she needed it, was extraordinary. The trekking route for the group fitted exactly on our wishes, so what could we wish more?”Rob

“I have used this trekking agency since 1994. Guides, Sherpas are well-trained, personable and very professional. Treks, even to standard destinations have a strong spiritual element. Not intrusive but borne of respect for the land as well as a Buddhist sensitivity. Padam, knows the flora and fauna as well as local lore and he is happy to share. All arrangements are safe and secure and you will never feel in danger. You are carefully watched and evaluated for safety and health. All of the treks I have made (6) have been well-managed, tough and memorable.”Mark Tausig

“I was privileged to have Shambhala Trekking help me organize and lead my climb of Mt. Everest in 2014. They not only secured my Everest climbing permit, they also trained me for the climb and taught me all of the different climbing aspects prior to reaching Everest.
As training for Everest, Shambala’s founder and leading instructor and head climbing guide, Padam Ghale, required that I climb and summit Yala Peak and several other peaks in the Langtang Valley and complete a rapid 20 mile trek in 2013 to simulate a quick Everest emergency decent. I was also given extensive instruction on ice climbing, rock climbing, harness rigging, snow management, rope and line setup and use, oxygen
use and management, low temperature dangers and coping methods as well as a complete discussion of High Altitude Sickness and prevention and medication.
I felt completely prepared when I reached the Kumbu Ice Fall above Everest Base Camp and that gave me the confidence to deal with the very difficult and challenges of climbing Everest.”
