    I went on the 15 days EBC trek. It was the most amazing experience from start to finish… big thanks to the company Himalayan summit treks in particular Sittal and my guide Ganga who went to extra efforts to make my trekking experience the best it possibly could be. Everything was perfectly organized and thought out including the tea houses, food and itinery. My guide was very experienced, knew a lot about the region and was so friendly. I was traveling alone so it was nice to feel like I was trekking with a good friend as opposed to just a guide. I will definitely be returning in the near future to trek with this company again, I would 100% recommend this trek and company to anyone.
