Base Camp Traveller’s Review

ABC and Poon Hill

Rated 5 out of 5
January 25, 2020

Our experience with Gokyo treks & expeditions was nothing short of exceptional. Our guide Kamal was not only incredibly professional and always had our safety and best interests in mind, but he was also one the kindest people we’ve ever met. I feel privileged to spent 9 days with him and I appreciate all of the organisation of Ammar, which meant there was not a single hiccup throughout the journey.
Thank you once again.

My Travel made and I hiked the ABC trek through Gokyo Treks and it was a wonderful experience. We were very thankful for our guide Lila, as he took great care of us.
