5 of us did this trek in Nov 2015. I can confidently say this 2 week trek is one of the finest memories I have had in my life so far. Kudos to Unique Adventures for organizing such a long trek with no glitches at all.
Hope I can make it again in 2016 for my Everest base camp trek with you guys.
Unique Adventures provided us an experience just as they have named their company, unique! Even though we found the price to be rather steep, me and my friends loved our time spent in the trek, with all the challenges. The temperatures were low in October, but we were well equipped!
