There’s no secret that the EBC trek is a crowded one.

People from all over the world come to enjoy the Himalayas and to put their abilities to test during this 9-16 days trek.

Some travel as very large groups. Hikers from India, particularly, seem to be very fond of Nepal treks. It’s easy to see why; India and Nepal are neighbors, and therefore travel costs are lower. I had to pay a small fortune on flights on top of the other Everest Base Camp trek costs. Hikers from India get to Nepal much cheaper.

Again, my guest author, Andrew Dave was kind enough to write the following article about the best Nepal treks from India.
