Experience for a lifetime!

(5/5)
It was one of the toughest treks I did so far and away more challenging to my expectations. Had I not chosen Everest Base Camp Treks and tours I may not have completed my trek. Pasang my guide took a very good care of me during the whole trek and I’m thankful I didn’t get major altitude sickness. The team members of the company were very helpful and king. They gave me very homely environment and treated as a part of their family. Had a wonderful time in Nepal and I’ll cherish these moments for forever.
