Annapurna Panorama Trek Review

Annapurna Panorama Journey with Gokyo Treks Agency.

Rated 5 out of 5
October 29, 2019

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!

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!

Likewise, in the last couple of years, many tourists asking us how I get to Ghandruk privately. Getting there from Kathmandu first requires flying to get to Pokhara town. Backpackers take a day/night bus to get to Pokhara town. Optional tourists can rent a private car to reach Pokhara and take a private vehicle (possible on sharing basis) to Ghandruk without any trouble.

It is, however, very incredible that the itinerary would be extensively altered. If alterations are necessary the leader will decide the best alternative option, taking into consideration the best interests of the whole group. When a change does occur, we do everything we can to minimize its effect, but we cannot be responsible for the results of changes or delays.
