EBC is a once a lifetime experience and it was made more memorable by Rabin and his team. He is one of the best guides to have for this trek. He made his team made it very comfortable for all of us. We were a large group of 30 people, and that wasn't really a challenge for these guys, as they have extensive experience of trekking in this region. I would always recommend them everyone.
