Everest base camp and kalapatthar hike

100% 5 star based on – 212 Based on TripAdvisor Reviews

We booked our trek to everest base camp via Ammar at Gokyo Treks.

He booked our flights, organise our trekking permits, and guide. He also advised us how much we would need to spend each day whilst trekking. Whilst we were booking our trek with Ammar we met a guide who had just returned from EBC who told us what to expect.

When we arrived in Lukla we were met by our guide. We did have to book a porter after two days but our guide was helpful in arranging this. Ammar kept in touch with us during our trek to see how we were and to check the trek was going well.

I would definitely recommend booking a trek with Gokyo Treks – everything was really well organized and easy, he gave us all the information we needed and the guide he organized was good. I would definitely go on another trek with Gokyo Treks if I visit Nepal again. – Sophie Boyce, Shropshire, United Kingdom

Everest Base Camp Trek. Best company in Nepal!

100% 5 star based on – 289 Based on TripAdvisor Reviews

These guys are the absolute best in the game! I just came back from the Everest base camp trek and Gokyo Treks made it a trip of a lifetime. Even before the trip started I was in contact with the awesome owner, Ammar. He was always on time with his responses to my questions. That was just the beginning of great service. once we got to Kathmandu it took us a few hours to get out of the airport. He waited the entire time! Not one of his employees, the owner himself (Ammar). The hotel we got to stay in was very good. And what can be said about our guide Bishnu. Just an epic human. He made the trip possible. such an awesome soul. Please choose this trekking company and i promise you won’t be disappointed! I am going back to Nepal for the Annapurna Base Camp Trek and you know I will definitely be choosing Gokyo Treks and Bishnu! Just a perfect A-Z experience. – Saiful Bari, Washington DC, USA

The Best Everest Base Camp Trekking review

100% 5 star based on – 208 Based on TripAdvisor Reviews

We’ve booked our trekking to Everest Base Camp before we went to Nepal. We told the team of Gokyo Treks about our wishes and we did have a lot of questions about the trekking and the equipment. They respond very quickly and gave us a lot of information, suggestions and offered a good price. During the trek everything was organized very well.We choose for a porter/guide.

He grow up in the mountains and did know everything about the area, weather conditions, altitude sickness etc. In case of emergency we could call with the team in Kathmandu 24/7. A couple of other tourist told us that they were a bit jealous because they wanted a guide as we had. We did have a beautiful trekking and afterwards the team of Gokyo Treks was really interested in our experience. – Estherv Wezel Utrecht, The Netherlands

Ammar the owner of the company gave me a feeIing of being in good hands responding so fast and accurate to the my many mails prior to the trek. Arrived in Kathmandu I contacted him. He sent me one of his colleagues to escort me to the new place of the office. Which was to be honest not so easy to find. But with Ammars colleague of cause no problem. There were still a lot of constructions at the house so Ammar was quite busy when I met him for the first time. Nevertheless he made time for me and answered my last questions.

The trek itself was an unforgettable journey through the heart of Solukhumbu. Actually the plan was to cross Chola Pass and go for Gokyo Ri too but unfortunately the pass was closed due to the snow. But even without Chola and Gokyo it was my most memeroable holiday so far. So I will not hesitate to highly recommend Gokyo Treks & Expeditions. Thank you for this adventure. – Thorsten Schaefer, Kassel, Germany

Everest Base Camp trek via Chola Pass and Gokyo lakes

100% 5 star based on – 185 Based on TripAdvisor Reviews

I recently completed my wish list of going to Everest Base Camp and Gokyo with the assistance from 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 advice, 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 the 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 became friend, Tej Regmi, a thoughtful guide and genuine at doing his work. He gave full attention, especially when intersecting the Chola Pass glacier is hazardous. Tej even suggested an alternative trekking route to mt Everest base camp 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 the 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. – Zhafir Mustafa, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
