Though I said the visit date is May 2016 (tripadvisor allows me to choose only the past one year duration), actually this great and marvellous EBC trek was done way back in May 2011 and my review comes pretty late. The then trek guide Dawa Tamang of Travel Times is a good professional, helpful, knowledgeable and entertaining guide that I have decided to do the EBC trek again through him with my 12 year old son in May 2017 (two months from now). Though there are many trek operators based out of India and Nepal that you would find on google search, I pulled out the old contacts from gmail and got in touch with Dawa to do the EBC only through him. I am very much impressed with his organizational skills. I hope to have a great time again with him.
About the EBC trek itself, I guess there are many articles published out there on Internet with very clear explanation of the route map, difficulty levels etc. So, I don’t want to rewrite the same here. This review is to help choose the right trekking guide.
