Trip overview

All about this trip

The EverTrek Ring of Fire Trek in Ecuador is truly erupting with adventure! Starting in the city of Quito you will already get a taste of what lies ahead as on a clear day you can see the snow capped peaks of the volcanoes that surround the region and that's where you are heading, right into the Ring of Fire. 

The Surrounding Andres offers gorgeous nature, exotic indigenous villages where you can mix with the locals and experience their way of life and learn about their cultures, all while starting to acclimatise for summits ahead. On your way to the 6268m summit of Chimborazo you will trek around the Cuicocha lake, practice climbing with your crampons, ice axe and ropes on the Cayambe glacier and reach the summits of 3 more of the region's highest volcanic peaks. A great trekking and climbing route, offering great access to accommodation facilities with the right balance of remote adventure and support to make your trip a success.

Join us on the Ring of Fire Trek

  • Prices include all climbing permits permits

Experience Required

The 13 day Cotopaxi & Chimborazo itinerary is a tough and arduous trek and climb. It is meant to be challenging. You must be a fit, regular hillwalker to take part, used to long, consecutive days walking in the British Mountains, preferably in Winter conditions. You should have experience walking steep, boulder-strewn paths where the use of hands has been essential to scramble upwards over rocky steps. Previous experience of altitude would be an advantage as you will be reaching over 6000 meters. 

We can forward a detailed equipment list upon booking. Over the years, we have gained an incredible amount of experience and expertise in outdoor equipment and clothing. We have applied this to each trip that we offer and recommend what we believe to be the most suitable items for your trip.

    Arrival in Quito

    Hola! Welcome to Ecuador!

    Today is the first day of your South American adventure and a member of the EverTrek team will be there to greet you and welcome you to Quito. Private transfer straight to the hotel for you to relax and get over the long haul flight and enjoy some free time getting to know your fellow EverTrekkers and the local food and drinks.

  • Day 2

    Full day of sightseeing around Quito

    After breakfast your private tour around Quito begins, you will leave the modern part of Quito and head to the ancient historical part of the city where you will spend time basking in the local atmosphere. Some highlights include the La Basilica Church, La Compania Church and El Panecillo Hill. After some lunch at a local restaurant you will visit Mitad del Mundo where you can stand on the equatorial line and take part in some fun experiments!

  • Day 3

    Cuicocha Lake trek to Otavalo

    Pick-up from the hotel in the morning and then you will drive for around 3 hours to Cuicocha’s volcanic lake, on the way stopping at the Equatorial line and the town of Otavalo. Once you arrive at the Cuicocha park entrance the first day of trekking begins! Hiking around the craters rim you will already be acclimatising as you reach an altitude of 3400m.  The walk will go almost all the way around the lake, to a dirt road where the transport will be waiting to take the team back to Otavalo. Once in Otavalo, you will have free time to visit the famous indigenous market, where it is possible to find all sorts of souvenirs. There is a wide variety of bars, restaurants and cafes to enjoy, but as you are already at altitude we recommend saving the beers for another day, as tomorrow is your first high altitude volcanic summit!

    Ascent: 300 m / Descend: 300 m / Highest Altitude: 3400 m / Activity duration: 4 h

  • Day 4

    Climb Imbabura volcano (4560 m)

    Imbabura volcano is beautifully located at the shores of San Pablo lake just in front of the town of Otavalo. It's an early morning pick up at the hotel and 1.5 hour drive to the trailhead known as La Esperanza which is already at an altitude of 3165m. Imbabura has two summits and we do this acclimatisation climb to the first summit, slightly lower and closer that the second. This is a great climb as Imbabura stands alone and has an awesome view of the neighbouring volcanoes of Cotachachi and Cayambe. Imbabura is also not as crowded as other summits more commonly climbed for acclimatisation. It is important to be aware that even though the ascent is not technical it is a long steep climb and the altitude will take your breath away as well as the views. After the climb the group will return to Otavalo for a good rest and a long sleep at the lower altitude.

    Ascent: 1365 m / Descend: 1365 m / Highest Altitude: 4560 m / Activity duration: 6-7 h

  • Day 5

    Cayambe – Glacier training (4680 m)

    After a good rest and a well deserved breakfast it's time to leave Otavalo and drive for 2 hours to the Cayambe’s Parking area at 4350m. Then a 1 hour hike to your home for the night, the Cayambe mountain hut at 4621m. Here we can have a short break before continuing for another 30 minutes to the lower part of the Cayambe glacier. Once at the glacier you are at 4680m and it's time to gear up, your guide will be giving you an introduction course in the use of crampons, ice axes, ropes and all the appropriate technical gear for the climb. The climb itself is not overly technical so the course if not a full on alpine climbing course, it's more of an introduction into the techniques needed for the ascent. 

    The whole time on the glacier you will also be furthering your acclimatisation which will make sure you are strong and healthy for the days ahead.  After the training the rest of the afternoon is spent back at the hut getting ready for the summit. The guides will do a detailed briefing about all the aspects of the ascent and help with all the gear. An early dinner will be served and then it's time to rest, until your guide does the wake up call, usually around midnight.

    Ascent: 330 m / Descend: 59 m / Highest Altitude: 4680 m / Activity duration: 4 h

  • Day 6

    Summit Cayambe Volcano (5790m)

    The summit day starts very early; your guide will choose the start time based on the weather and the team's overall speed and condition to ensure enough time to safely reach the summit and return, this is usually between 11pm and 2am. The team will begin the ascent from the hut heading up a moraine for about 1.5 - 2 hours. Once on the edge of the glacier, the group will stop and equip crampons and depending on the group size split into smaller teams in a range of 2 clients for 1 guide. 

    The climb of Cayambe is long and requires endurance and a good deal of mental strength. Cayambe’s glacier is one of the biggest ice masses in the country and the climb, though not technically difficult, does have a series of crevassed areas and some few icy slopes that make the route a fun challenge. The first section of the glacier is a gentle slope until a rocky formation called Picos Jarrin, from there the route goes by a main ridge that leads up to the summit. There are a few icy sections and passages on the ridge, however the main obstacle is the altitude, so perseverance is the key.  The weather on Cayambe changes rapidly, as it is located on the Eastern range looking down into the amazon, so this is also a determining factor for a successful ascent. The climb takes an average time of 7- 8 hours. The summit of Cayambe is just spectacular, the view and sense of achievement is worth every slow step of the way. The descent is done taking back the same way and it usually takes between 3 - 4 hours. Once back at the huts and after the whole group reunites, the team will hike down to the parking vehicles which will be waiting to take you to Cotopaxi National Park and the best sleep of the trip so far.

    Ascent: 1169 m / Descent: 1440 m / Highest Altitude: 5790 m / Activity duration: 10-12 h

  • Day 7

    Cotopaxi Huts (4847m)

    After a good rest and a well deserved breakfast, the group will start getting all your equipment and gear re-organised again for the summit of Cotopaxi.  Around midday, the team will jump into the vehicles and drive 1 hour to the Cotopaxi’s Parking area (4587m). Then an 1-hour hike to Cotopaxi’s mountain hut (4847 m). The rest of the afternoon is for the climb’s preparations, your guides will do a detailed briefing about all the aspects of the ascent and help with all the gear. An early dinner will be served and then rest, for another early wake up call.

    Ascent: 403 m / Descend: 143 m / Highest Altitude: 4990 m / Distance: 1.2 km one way / Activity duration: 1 h

  • Day 8

    Summit Cotopaxi (5897m)

    The summit day starts very early; your guide will choose the start time based on the weather and the team's overall speed and condition to ensure enough time to safely reach the summit and return, this is usually between 11pm and 2am. The team will begin the ascent from the hut following a well marked trail that gently climbs over a fine stoned moraine for about 1 hour. Once on the edge of the glacier (4990m), the group will stop and equip crampons and depending on the group size split into smaller teams in a range of 2 clients for 1 guide. Cotopaxi’s climb is tough and the altitude is a serious factor, Cotopaxi’s glacier is stable and safe and the climb not technically difficult, but there are a few crevassed areas and some few icy slopes that make the route interesting.

    The first section of the glacier is a gentle slope that gets steeper as it goes higher, there is a series of switchbacks known as “The Heart Breaker” for being the toughest part of the ascent but you will have the right mindset and acclimatisation in place to get past this section heart intact!. After the Heart Breaker life gets a little easier as you follow a very nice ridge that gradually gains altitude, passing close to the prominent rock face known as “Yanasacha '' at about 5630m. From this point, your route is a relatively long traverse to the right before another set of switchbacks that lead up to the crater’s rim and a few meters later to the summit. 

    Cotopaxi’s summit is one of the most spectacular, looking down into the double rim crater and, on clear days, it is possible to see the neighbouring volcanoes of Antisana, Cayambe, Ilinizas, Chimborazo, El Altar and the active Tunguragua. The descent is done following back the same way, taking between 3-4 hours. Once back at the huts and after the whole group reunites, a short hike down (20 minutes) to the parking place and then a 3 - 4 hour drive to the town of Baños 

    Ascent: 1050 m / Descent: 1315 m / Highest Altitude: 5897 m / Distance to the summit: 2.47 Km & Distance from summit to parking place: 3.22 Km / Activity duration: 10-12 h

  • Day 9

    Rest day at the Town of Baños de Santa Agua (1820m)

    The town of Baños, as it is locally know, lies in the Tunguragua province just at the foothills of the active Tunguragua Volcano. Baños is called the “Gateway to the Amazon'' as it’s the last andean town before reaching the Amazon basin. Due to its privileged location, this town offers a great deal of activities, the best known are the hot-springs (baños).  Baños also has some great scenery with the famous waterfalls that lie a few kilometers down the valley. The best known are “El Pailon del Diablo” (Devil’s pot) and “El manto de la Novia” (the Bride’s veil), which can be visited by taking a local taxi.  Also by taking the “Tarabita” (Cable-car) to cross over the Pastaza River it is possible to hike through the orchards and gardens of the local peasants.Or you can just kick back and relax at the lower altitude and enjoy the warm temperature and beautiful scenery.

  • Day 10

    Chimborazo – Carrel hut (4800 m)

    After a day of leisure and a relaxing morning in the town of Baños, the group will pack and drive for 3 hours towards Chimborazo National Park. On the way, there will be a couple of short stops and time to buy the last snacks before leaving “civilization”. Chimborazo volcano is an impressive mountain that stands out from the “Volcanoes Avenue”. The indigenous farm land that surrounds the mountains are all traditionally worked and very colourful during the harvest season. While driving up to the main entrance, it is possible to see  some very dramatic landscapes where old eruptions have shaped the geography of the place. After crossing the park borders, the landscape turns very arid, like a desert, where it is possible to see one of the rare South American camelids: Vicuñas. These animals are difficult to see because they live in quiet inaccessible areas. They have mastered the art of surviving in these difficult conditions. The ones living in this park are not originally from the area, but introduced many years ago and over time became permanent residents.

    The road goes all the way to the door of the lower hut “Refugio Hermanos Carrel” at 4800m. You will complete a 1 hour acclimatization hike by following the valley up to the Whymper hut at 5000m and then back down to the Carrel hut. The rest of the afternoon and evening will be to prepare for the climb and have an early dinner. Your guide will do a briefing and help with all your gear and equipment.

    Ascent: 200 m / Descent: 200 m / Highest Altitude: 5000 m / Activity duration: 1.5 h

  • Day 11

    Summit Chimborazo (6268m)

    Chimborazo is the highest mountain in Ecuador and also the highest in the world measured from the center of the earth, due to its location on the tropical belt. The mountain has five major summits all linked by a ridge called the “Arista del Sol” (Sun’s ridge), which is probably the reason for its Quichua name, which translates to “Ice braid”. The main summit is called Whymper and stands at (6268m), named after the British mountaineer Edward Whymper who was the first person to reach the summit in 1880 along with the Swiss Carrel brothers. Climbing Chimborazo by its normal Southwest route is a challenging affair, it is a long 1468m ascent and descent and the terrain is complex, as it changes from an easy moraine trail to ice, snow and rocky sections, with some easy scrambling at some specific spots. Even though it is not a technical climb, it is physically demanding. The climb starts between 10pm to 1am, according to the team's fitness, acclimatization level and weather conditions. your guide will decide the departure time and wake up the clients up, 1 hour before, to have some breakfast and get ready for the climb. The first part of the route is no longer the normal route, but a variant known as the “Marco Cruz route”, named after the legendary Ecuadorian mountaineer who first ascended it. This variant joins the normal route after the “El Castillo” rock pillar, making the ascent much safer and more scenic. After a short while walking on the slightly exposed section hiking around the “El Castillo” rock before you come to a flat area where the variant route joins the normal route. 

    The glacier rises on a wide ridge that goes up to an approximate altitude of 5850m. From this point a gentle traverse elevates westwards reaching 6000m and then a relatively straight climb to the first summit, called Veintimilla at 6230m. You will then descend a few meters to cross a col and then back up to the main summit, Whymper at 6268m. This will be a truly memorable ascent and the sense of satisfaction of reaching the top of a 6000m volcano and the highest mountain in Ecuador will no doubt bring a tear to you eye. The descend is done by the same route back to the Carrel hut and, after packing, there will be a transfer ready to take the group on the 4 hour drive to Quito

    Ascent: 1468 m / Descent: 1468 m / Highest Altitude: 6268 m / Activity duration: 10-12 h

  • Day 12

    Spare summit day / extra day in Quito

    This day is to allow for extra time to reach the summit and account for any weather delays in the unusual event they occur. We will endeavour to keep to the main schedule so this day will likely be spent relaxing and celebrating in Quito.

  • Day 13

    Departure

    Time to say goodbye to the volcanoes of Ecuador.

Accommodation

Where you'll be staying during this trip

Whilst in Quito and the local villages you will be staying in hotels and lodges, as we do like a little bit of comfort as it helps prepare you for the tougher colder nights on the mountain!

During the trek you will stay in mountain huts with bunk beds, local lodges and tents and all are on a twin sharing basis unless stated.

Here’s what some of our awesome customers had to say
I could not recommend Evertrek enough! They went above and beyond from the very moment I called to enquire right the way through until the very moment I arrived back home.

We happened to be stuck in Nepal for an additional 10 days due to the country going into lockdown and Evertrek worked tirelessly every single day to ensure not only were we in the loop with what was going on but also just to make sure we were comfortable, happy and OK!

They don't feel like your typical corporate company, the entire team is super friendly and make you feel like pals! Something quite important to me and they showed in every single way is that they truly care for all their staff, as soon as the Sherpas and guides lost pretty much all work for this season they set up a justgiving page to help support their families! They doing everything with love and care both for their customers and their team!!

Ok, I could go on! Bottom line is, if you are looking for some trekking adventures, look no further. Just go and book it, you will not regret it!

Thank you for reminding me why I love travelling and trekking so much, now you have awoken it I have lots of planning to do for 2021 hehe!! ❤️

Professional travel company
They were fantastic and went out their way to support me when I was stuck in Nepal due to the Coronavirus lockdown
I would highly recommend this company to any trekkers looking for a travel company.
I will definitely be using this company again in the future.

After months of research I chose Evertrek as the company to lead me on a once in a lifetime trip to Everest base camp. It is by far the best decision I have ever made. The organisation was second to non and nothing was left to chance, the accommodation, the guides, Sherpas and porters were amazing. However our group went at the start of the Coronovirus outbreak and on return to Lukla we were in a country in Lockdown, this is were Evertrek became invaluable, as other trekkers were stuck EverTrek’s people in Nepal came into there own, they organised flight to Kathmandu and when stuck in Kathmandu they found the very best hotel and kept us informed constantly as did the Evertrek guys back home. They never left us alone until we were at the airport.
Nothing was to much for the guys in the UK or Kathmandu, if you are thinking about this trip there is only one company to consider EVERTREK 110%

I have taken advantage of the 10 pound deposit to secure a place to Base camp October 2021!

The contact has been brilliant with the EverTrek team!
Thanks Guys.
Now to get into training!

Evertrek are a fantastic, they support you, are very knowledgeable. The service that I have received is second to none and I can not fault it at all, it’s first class all the way. The booking process is easy, they are very knowledgeable and I can’t wait to to go Everest, I know it will be the best experience of my life. I will do other trips with them, as I know I am in the best hands, you could not ask more more from the team. Amazing service and very supportive always!

I traveled to EBC this October and would really recommend Evertrek. Being my first adventure holiday, it was reassuring to have such a supportive team with lots of information, advice and kit recommendations prior to departure.

Having little things like filtered water and meals included in the cost (I saw another group having to queue to pay for breakfast) might seem trivial but it meant we didn't have to worry about running out of money on the trek - and they treat their guides and sherpas (who were top class and couldn't do enough for you) with consideration and respect.

I always felt well looked after throughout my time in Nepal, and they put a great deal of effort into ensuring that the holiday went smoothly such as rearranging flights, and adapted to any issues that arose.

Evertrek made it a great holiday. I met some fun people, have some great memories and lots of photos! You even get a free bag, medal and certificate!

Just travelling back from an amazing EBC trip with Evertrek. I've travelled with a lot of other adventure travel companies in the past but have to say Evertrek has been the best. From the easy booking process and pre departure info and support, to the amazing local Kathmandu
team, guides, sherpas, porters and yak men in Nepal I cant fault Evertrek. If you are thinking about a trip just do it. You wont regret it. And you wont regret choosing Evertrek either. I'm already looking at other trips and not even home yet!

Absolutely first class, from when I first booked knowing nothing about hiking at altitude, right the way through the trip itself. Everything has been handled with the utmost professionalism and the entire team has been incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and hardworking. Our guide, Padam, and his team are worth their weight in gold. Could not recommend Evertrek enough.

Not been to EBC yet but have booked to go with them next March.
I’ve just returned from a fantastic training weekend with them in the Brecon Beacons. It was wet and windy but Evertrek didn’t disappoint, . From start to finish, the experience was great. Both Andy( the owner) and his trusty sidekick Dave (the painted Yeti) were there to make us feel welcome. They were both hands on, and their knowledge was second to none.
I can’t wait to actually go to Everest, and after this weekend I feel assured that I’ll be in great hands.
Nothing was too much trouble, and it was great see the way that Andy and Dave talk about Everest with such a passion.
Well done guys

This trip was exceptional from start to finish. Has to be one of the best run and professional companies I have come across. Before we even started we were sent weekly emails and lots of correspondence to get us excited for the trip. Any questions and worries were answered straight away some even by video replies!! The actual Everest base camp trip itself was one of the best experiences of my life however very tough! Everything from start to finish was run perfectly. I couldn’t have asked for more from Andy, Dave and the Sherpas they provided! A 5 star service all round!

Still to go to Basecamp, but they have been very helpful with the many questions I have asked them about our up coming trek.

I had the most fantastic trip in Nepal, all thanks to evertrek. Andy was so so helpful from the moment I first rang about going. Nothing was ever to much, always had a speedy reply- which was reassuring when I was stressing about equipment. The training weekend that they offer is also incredibly helpful and really gets you ready for your holiday.
Our guide in Nepal, Bhim and his team, were absolutely fantastic, they worked unbelievably hard, you never wanted for anything. (Watch them, they cheat at cards!!haha)
As for the trek, the negotiations of getting to Lukla were a bit up in the air...but that's just Nepal! Go with the flow. But once we got there, it was absolutely brilliant, everyday the scenery was beautiful and I never felt like they expected to much from you. Plenty of rest time and tea stops! I personally really enjoyed the food (I lived on veggi curry and rice-you get seconds :D) and thought all the accommodation was fine!!
Basically an all round incredible trip, there wasn't a second I didn't enjoy!!! Highly recommend Andy and the team. Would defo do another trek with them :D

Recently returned from our EBC trek and I can’t fault Evertrek, right from the minute you sign up Andy is giving advice and replying to any queries you might have. Special thanks to Phurba and Harry our guides over there, they keep a eye on you and don’t let you go to quickly up the mountain and look after you. If you are thinking about doing it just go for it you won’t regret it . Awesome

I had the most amazing trip to Everest Base Camp with Evertrek, thank you Andy for being the font of all knowledge about this trip and for Rishi our guide for looking after us. It is probably the most challenging holiday I have ever done but it was worth every moment and the scenery was just stunning. Nepal is an amazing place and I will definitely go back one day. Thanks to Evertrek and my trekking buddies for a very special holiday.

Just returned from Everest Base Camp trek and it was absolutely brilliant!
Many thanks to everyone at EverTrek, especially Andy - from start to finish the organisation was par excellence. Special thanks to Rishi our guide and my trekking companions who put the icing on the cake to make one of my dreams come true.

Having recently booked myself on a trip to Everest Base Camp with Evertrek, I thought it would be one of those trips where you get to hear about everything you should have done two weeks before you go. Not with Andy and Evertrek. Immediately Andy was in touch with information, assistance and support. You could feel his energy coming at you. Along with the practical advice, Evertrek arrange training activities. These are great for finding out first hand what you need to know and how you might cope with the activities ahead. It really does crank up the excitement when you share your thoughts and views with fellow Evertrekers. This weekend we had one of these training activities in the Brecons. Andy made us all very welcome, and was there all the way, rain and shine, to helps us all along.
We made some great connections, enjoyed the socialising (you earn it!) and came away even more excited to be getting on the plane to Nepal. Hopefully there will be more such events to enjoy, and build on the training already done. I’m already walking the dogs for 10mins more🙂.
Thanks to Andy and the team for a great weekend. Good luck to those on their way in the next few months, and those who have a longer wait we can share your excitement.

Overjoyed with my recent trip to EBC. I can't praise Evertrek enough. From the 1st day I contacted Andy he has been amazing. Offering fantastic advice & tips before my trip.
Hotel, guides & transfers in Kathmandu were spot on.
Biggest credit has to go to the guide & sherpa who take care of you every step of the way.

Thank you Evertrek

The EverTrek organisation was excellent, the choice of Kathmandu hotel superb, good trek accommodation and great choice of food. I was impressed with the punctuality of transfer arrangements too. Keep up the good work!

A truly wonderful once in a lifetime experience. My sister and I trekked to Everest Basecamp with Evertrek to mark the tenth anniversary of our dearest Mum passing away. It was an emotional experience we will never forget. It gave us time to reflect on wonderful times past and brought us closer as only shared endeavour can. The Himalayan backdrop was the perfect location.

But it's the people that made the trek. Our guide Kishor is a wonderful guy. A real fixer, high altitude expert, family man and now, friend. When the weather delayed our flight, he did everything he could to make sure we were first onto another. His experience, knowledge and local contacts got us into places we just wouldn't have seen without him. He knew when to go to the best places to avoid the crowds and he was the picture of happiness with his infectious smile. He was kind to the point of putting us first all the time, without hesitation. A true gentlemen and the source of lots of fun and laughter - perfect for morale. Our porters also deserve a mention for their hard work and dedication through some difficult long days at high altitude. Manesh was particularly hard working and charming, keen to learn and become a guide himself in time. Our trek wouldn't have been the same without them and when I go again I will definitely seek out the same team.

My recommendation? Grab a loved one and go trekking in Nepal in the capable hands of the Evertrek team. And request Kishor to be your guide. You won't regret it.

Thanks guys for the experience of a lifetime. What can I say about Evertrek! Simply brilliant. From the moment we spoke with Andy and signed up it was all taken care of. The guides were truly amazing, professional and were always on-hand to look after us. Listen, this is a tough challenge but it's well within the reach of most of you out there considering the possibility. I've kept myself pretty fit all my life (63 years young) but trying to keep up with my sons was, at times, pushing my limits. The scenery is so beautiful it becomes an emotional challenge at times. We did Kilimanjaro a few years ago - Base Camp blows that away completely. However, you need to be in the best hands and we were. Our guides, Rahul and Krishna were meticulous in making sure we were looked after every step of the way and needless to say we have become friends for life. I cannot recommend EverTrex highly enough. Don't think about this for too long - just do it. They'll get there and you'll never forget the experience. So,as soon as I have some pics ready I'll upload and share but please do not hesitate to contact me while I'm still flying through thin air!!! Thanks again Andy and EverTrex

Loved every minute of the Everest Base Camp trek! The guys were all very accommodating and helpful in the build up to and on the trek. Everything about the package ensured my time was comfortable, fun and without any worries. Our guide Rawal was informative, friendly and a great laugh when he got his drums out on the last night! A big thank you to Evertrek for making this happen and I look forward to booking with you guys again!

Hey guys!
Just wanted to say a huge thanks to all at Bucket List, both here and in Nepal, for making my trip to EBC, Cho La and Gokyo so enjoyable and memorable. Himal, my guide, was a star and I enjoyed his company throughout the two plus weeks we were together; he looked after me really well and I have no doubt that his local knowledge helped to smooth the way on a few occasions when accommodation was tight! If my wife can be persuaded to let me go again, you will be my first port of call.
Cheers!

What a first class service, Andy was supportive, knowledgeable and really quick at replying. If you want to make base camp then this is the way to do it, from the airport to the top and back again. Fully supported, with a friendly team. Would not hesitate to book more treks in Nepal with Andy. Thank you team.
