Ammar Raj Guni is a perfect and very reliable agent for arranging your trekking. He has also much experience as a guide, so he always knows where he is talking about. His prices are really competitive. His calculations were transparant, our trek was some days longer then arranged, but at the end we got no unexpected costs. He works with local people from the small villages and he treats them very socially. So during the two days we stayed at his house, we felt ourselves very comfortably. I strongly recommend his agency if you’re visiting Nepal. – Doreleijers Hendrikus, Geldrop, The Netherlands.
Gokyo has done a wonderful job in making our hiking trip a success. Ammar was very helpful and responsive in our planning stage by addressing most of our concerns and followed up closely with our group.
Shreeram was assigned to us as our guide and we were so lucky to have him. We were well taken care of throughout the trek. Shreeram was always checking up on us and making sure we were doing ok. He was attentive to our needs and always willing to accommodate us. He was observant and quick to solve our minor issues along the way, i,e my shoes were almost broken on Day 1 (i din’t even notice) but he noticed it and immediately super glued it during lunch and now my shoes are stronger than before! Most importantly, we felt safe and comforted throughout the trek.
Credits to the entire team including our 2 strong and fast porters Dev & Surendra for bringing us across Thorong La Pass and back down to Kathmandu safely with our bags. I am very happy with Gokyo Treks services. The itinerary was well organized and flexible according to our pace. Guide/porters were super chilled and fun people to hang with! We had so much fun together! This trip was filled with wonderful scenery and epic trails because we had experienced and capable people to guide and advise us along the way. Thank you!, Lee Janey, Quala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Gokyo Treks was really affordable and easy to liaise with. We texted Ammar on a regular basis prior to the trip to clarify details, and he was always very responsive. The guides and porters catered to our needs and the side treks that we wanted to go for, but they were also wary about our safety and were honest with the risks involved. The guides took good care of our meals, and made sure we were well enough when we fell ill from the cold and AMS. They were really awesome! Thank you Bishnu, Sabin and Bir. Highly recommend!, – Grumpy Cheng, Singapore.
