Sallery to EBC trekking visit 2023

We had an astounding involvement in our EBC trekking visit. Our trek guide Kumar was proficient, well-organized, and continuously inquisitive about our well-being.

I profoundly suggest the visit with Himalaya Guide Nepal Local trekking company.

After our Annapurna Circuit in 2019 moreover, with Himalaya Guide Nepal it was a straightforward choice for a companion of mine Thomas, and me Stephan to book the visit once more with the same organizer.

We truly appreciate the back and are truly upbeat after the two visits here in this astounding nation of Nepal. Highly recommend this company and guide.
