Annapurna Panorama Trek Review
Annapurna Panorama Journey with Gokyo Treks Agency.
We got a chance to know Ammar from some of our hiking friends in the Alps. Me and my wife were curious to know to visit the Annapurna mountains and for a 3 years, we were making a plan to go there.
Luckily, we got a 2 weeks holiday from our job and book the 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 have well looked after. Nothing is too much trouble for him. Given that I had 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, the owner of the agency was super friendly and responsible all the time, and without them, we wouldn’t have made it to the Annapurna Panorama journey.
In addition, I do believe this company is considered trusted and offers cheaper treks than most others out there. Don’t hesitate to contact them for a great trip for a lifetime!
Response from Gokyo Treks Nepal

Impressive Annapurna Panorama Journey
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. Our experience would not have been the same without him, especially as it was during monsoon season and we had to take a few detours because of rain.
Gokyo treks is a reputable and honest company, and they did everything they could to make our trip the best possible. I would highly recommend!
Amazing trip to Annapurna
Being a novice trekker Gokyo’s organized trek with extremely helpful and encouraging guides Shree Ram and Bude waiba porters made it a very memorable experience. Would highly recommend them to anyone who wishes to trek in Nepal, especially at a very reasonable price without any compromise on the quality!
