“As an amateur trekker, I can't imagine going to EBC without Suman . Suman really made this journey so special and distinct. By comparison to all the guides I have seen in the EBC trek, he was definitely the best, and it is quite obvious when you interact with him. He was always helpful, never hesitating to satisfy your needs, and was not only a fantastic guide, but also a really good person. He was very informational, friendly, and cheerful. I can say that he is a model of what a guide should be or strive to be. I'd recommend Suman to those doing the EBC trek or any other trek in Nepal, as his 10 years of experience as a guide and his personality will make any trek enjoyable even when it becomes cold and miserable from altitude sickness.”
I had a great time on this trek! My guide was very knowledgeable and attentive. My porter took good care of me. The experience, hospitality and cultural insight offered by this trek are beyond incredible and wonderfully inspiring. Like anything, the trek has its tough moments, mostly the day over the pass, but the excitement of reaching the top surpasses the demanding nature of the trekking at that point. I will never forget this experience and it will stay close to me forever. Thanks to Adventure Himalayan Travels and treks for organizing such a special trek for me. I will highly recommend booking with them.
