    We did EBC trek via Salleri for 17 days, and we had a wonderful experience. Our guide Anjan/Dodo (we call him Dodo because he calls me Didi ) he was very knowledgeable, and he guided through some mountains and to the whole entire trek. We had fun times together and surely will recommend to our friends. Thanks for all Dodo... Hasta la vista amigo.Ciao!!!
