Amazing Annapurna Base Camp Experience!

I am a Malaysian who did the 10-day Annapurna Base Camp trek alone with Ram as my guide. This was my first time in Nepal and I have to say that I am highly satisfied with Gokyo Treks. Ammar handled everything from the moment I landed in Kathmandu airport. I had nothing to worry about! The professionalism and hospitality were amazing!

Ram was fantastic as my guide! And my Dhal Bhat buddy! He had very funny jokes and had the local knowledge to point out the things that I would have never noticed myself. He also always went out of the way to make sure I was taken care of all the time.

I had a great time with these guys! At last, I would highly recommend Gokyo Treks to anyone looking to do a trek in Nepal. – Christopher Sien Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
