We did a 7 day trek through the Annapurna region called the Annapurna Panoramic Trek – absolutely amazing views. Landscape changes frequently from rice fields to waterfalls to snow capped mountains. Our trek was led by Ram who did a fantastic job teaching us about the history of the region and mountains. He knew the area so well and always knew the best tea houses to stop at for food or lodging. I would highly recommend Ram and the Gokyo Trek team to any planning a trek in Nepal. – Tasha, San Diego, California, USA..

After our final decision to travel Nepal, we started to collect information via internet and finally we have booked our trip this time with Ammar, Gokyo Treks & Expedition. My son and I recently spent nearly two weeks holidays in Nepal.

Ammar, owner of the agency and his staff were unfailingly friendly, flexible, and efficient, arranged our trip in fair price. When my son got sick, Som picked him up at our hotel, took him to the hospital, and stayed with us for hours while he was being treated. His insight and perceptiveness ensured we made the best choices. I’m convinced we got a lot more out of the trip because their expertise.

Annapurna Panorama Journey with Gokyo Treks Agency.

100% 5 star based on – 293 Based on TripAdvisor Reviews

We got a chance to know Ammar from some of our hiking friends in Alps. Me and my wife were curious to know visit Annapurna mountains and since a 3 years we were making a plan to go there.

Luckily, we got a 2 weeks holiday from our job and book Annapurna panorama journey with Gokyo Treks and Expedition agency in Kathmandu. I thoroughly recommend them for their excellent service, genuine friendliness and hospitality and not least because of their very reasonable prices.

Ram was a fantastic guide, who runs the show, is a delightful man. He bends over backward to make sure his guests are well looked after. Nothing is too much trouble for him. Given that I had a back pain problems, I had some initial concerns as to whether I could make it up the mountains, but Ram was extremely flexible with the itinerary and could modify details to suit us at the last minute. I would like to thank our guide and Dipendra our friendly porter. Ammar, owner of the agency who was super friendly and responsibility all the times and without, we wouldn’t have made it to the Annapurna Panorama journey.

In addition, I do believe this company is considerably trusted and offers cheaper treks than most others out there. Don’t hesitate to contact them for a great trip for lifetime! Marry and Lyos, Stubaital, Austria.
