After postponing our trip due to an accident back home, my partner and I decided we were ready to do the EBC trek late April and early May, when the weather would be optimal: not too cold, and just before the rainy season. Balaram and Ganga, the company organizers, were extremely accommodating and flexible with dates and times. We just had to send our flight info into Kathmandu, and they took care of everything else.
The trek itself was incredible and breathtaking, and not just from the altitude. Our guide, Dhurba, and assistant guide and porter Suraj were both extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Dhurba set the pace for each day very well, and we never felt like we were being pushed past our limits. Suraj is impressively strong and gracious, and helped Dhurba out a bunch at teahouses to make sure we were comfortable. My partner and I would both highly consider joining Nepal Hiking Team on another trek they offer, due to our experience on the EBC trek with them.
