Ammar and his team were instrumental in making our trip to Gokyo and Everest Base Camp a success. For several months, Ammar responded promptly and in detail to all our questions regarding the trip. Our guides, Kamal and Som, are both outstanding and attentive.

Their strong knowledge of the Khumbu valley and personal connections with local business owners ensured that we were able to secure choice accommodations at each stop.

This experience also allowed them to quickly rearrange a different program for some members of the group who needed to detour to lower elevations. I would highly recommend Ammar and his team for a trek in the Everest region!

Everest Base Camp Trek with Bishnu Guide

Rated 5 out of 5
March 27, 2022

We have booked Everest base camp trek with a Gokyo Treks and Expedition, a local agency in Nepal. Like other trekking, we choose a guide Bishnu Panday for our Everest holiday. Although it is a peak season there were very less trekkers in the region because of covid-19 travel restrictions.

Ammar, owner of the agency was friendly and answered all of my questions, and offered a cheaper deal to us. Luckily we had good weather, a perfect Lukla flight, and also from base camp, we achieved the most amazing view of Khumbu Icefall and little stone stupas, an open memorial park of death climbers.

Besides of trekking, Ammar took us to the world heritage sites of Kathmandu. Thanks, Ammar for arranging a great trip for us. We are hoping to be back for next adventure in the coming spring season in Nepal. – Martha Kipar, Garmisch, Germany

Everest Base Camp trek via Chola Pass and Gokyo

I recently completed my wish list of going to Everest Base Camp and Gokyo with assistance of Gokyo Treks and Expedition, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision to go with the company. Ever since I contacted Gokyo Treks, Ammar Guni has assisted me with lots of decisions and given me advices, from what to expect on my trip to what are the essentials needed.

I was greeted warmly by Ammar when I touched down at Kathmandu airport, stayed at his house, and had a nice dinner with his family. Ammar even walked me to Thamel to get remaining essentials for my trip, and he made it so much easier since I’m not local.

While trekking, I was assigned a guide who then became friend, Tej Regmi, a thoughtful guide and genuine at doing his work. He gave full attention especially when crossing Chola Pass glacier which is dangerous. Tej even suggested alternative trekking routes since I was finishing my trip earlier than expected. The best is, friends who I knew along my trip even complimented him for being thoughtful.

Overall, I’m very happy with services by Ammar and his team, and for me their actions have spoken louder than words. Thanks for the great experience Gokyo Treks and Expedition! I strongly recommend them if you’re visiting Nepal.

We spent a great time travelling in Nepal with Gokyo Treks and Expedition with our guide, Hira, who did a fantastic job showing us the Himalayas. We highly recommend trekking with this agency. Ammar was always very helpful, and answered all the questions we had asked. He was very fair when talking about the costs. Whether we needed their help, they were there.
