It was an amazing experience with Bishnu and trustful professional guide Sanjay. They both taking care of me from the very beginning: helped me to get the trekking gear, air tickets, hotels, etc. For me it was a unique experience, I went to EBC trek me and my friend, with one guide and 1 porter. It was a very safe and interesting journey. Bishnu provides me with all information about the route and they was always in contact with me during trekking. Guide was experienced about the mountain on the way, and also with an adequate and clear opinion about my own condition, it helps me to avoid mistakes and mountain sickness problems. It was a lifetime experience for us, Thank you very much!
