Around Annapurna Trek Review

Around Annapurna Circuit 16 days

Rated 5 out of 5
February 28, 2020

We pre-booked a guide with Gokyo less than a week before the start date and chatted with Ammar to arrange the details.
He asked us to send a deposit of 100usd which seemed fair and although it felt a little unsecure to make a money transfer before meeting the guy, we understood his reason.
Upon arrival in Katmandou, Ammar and Kamal whom would be our guide for the next 16 days came to meet us at our hotel and finalized the details.
The next morning, Kamal came to pick us up at our hotel and we left for the bus to Beshisahar, where we started the trek.
Kamal Bahadur Khatri, speak a good English, and is probably the best guide we could have hired. He was very friendly and became a good friend during our time together. He went beyond our expectations and always make sure we’d stop in the best tea house and often deal with our room rates.
My wife got terrible blisters and was forced to continue with sandals for some time. Kamal kindly proposed to carry her bag when badly needed.
When we arrived at Manang, the weather forecast was not good and Kamal made the call to push a little and go through Thorang La Pass before the snowstorm (which blocked the way and kept many trekkers for almost a week).
We were debating either hire a guide or go by ourselves, but im pretty sure that giving the time of the year, the weather and our trekking experience, we would not have made it through without Kamal.
Overall, our experience with Gokyo was great, but mainly because our trek with Kamal was absolutely amazing.

My Big plan was trekking Annapurna Circuit, but almost halfway to Thorong La the weather became worse. And my guide Bharat Dhakal advised me not to continue because it’s too dangerous. Very Sad at that time with the weather. But after reading the news that some people missing because of the landslide, I really thank Bharat. He saved my life.
For Gokyo and Ammar, they gave me a really good price.
Thank you so much, guys. Will be back next year.

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 it!,

The best around the Annapurna trek note for traveler
