Absolute highest caliber company and the trekking team. Everything was taken good care of. I was well briefed and the trek was also very well organized. We were lucky with great weather and views of the mountains. We made it to EBC on schedule and also Kala Patthar. My guide, Ramesh, was very professional. He was always available and helpful, caring and personable. I have nothing but good things to say, and would highly recommend this company back home.
