(5/5)

We drive back this morning, from AN 11-day EBC Trek. The Trek was easy but it was made convenient because we were provided with a good guide, Ratna, and reliable porters. In every stop we made the accommodation were excellent.
I hope your company will continue to provide challenging but pleasant experiences of trekking.
