High Passes Trek Traveller’s Review

High Passes Trek with Island Peak climbing in Everest Zone

Rated 5 out of 5
May 12, 2022

My son suggested a hike in the Everest area and I jumped at the chance. We study about five companies and settled with Gokyo Treks & Expedition after checking out staff insurance, trip reviews, and licensing of the companies. Finally, we found this company as a genuine tour operator and we book everything with Ammar and his agency. Ammar met us on our arrival at the hotel and ensured our guided trip to Kathmandu for the second day went well.

Bimal was our guide, he met us at the airport and brought us to our hotel. He led us to the airport for the short flight to Lukla getting us through customs swiftly. We spent 16 days with him; he was remarkable the whole journey taking care of our needs and keeping us safe.

We had asked Ammar to put us in the best lodges and he did modify a better guesthouse with a cost difference. Overall we had an excellent adventure and I would recommend using Gokyo Treks travel agency for any trip to Nepal. – Henry and Vanessa Robbins, Zermatt, Switzerland

Everest high passes with Island peak climbing was great

Rated 5 out of 5
November 21, 2019

We were a group of four (my wife, our daughter and her boyfriend) and we started on October 20th from Kathmandu, flying into Lukla and trekking for 16 days up Everest base camp and Kalapattar. This was our third time of trekking in Nepal before we had been in Langtang/Gosainkund and in the Annapurna region up to ABC, and the Everest region is certainly the most spectacular one. But, obviously, it is also the most crowded one.

Ammar had been a perfect guide for us, extremely helpful in choosing the proper lodges, getting our food ready in time, and just making life as easy and entertaining as possible. Although he is young, he has a lot of experience in these regions, and, what is very helpful, a lot of friends among the locals. This can be useful: for example, the boss at the airport in Lukla is his friend.

You might have heard of problems arising in Lukla when the weather is bad for several days and the planes cannot fly. Then tourists are getting nervous because they might miss their international flights. And here Ammar´s friend would be very helpful and find you a place on a plane for flying out. Furthermore, Ammar´s rates are quite decent, much cheaper than when you book with one of the large trekking organizations.

Finally, he managed to choose three porters for us which were the best we had. They even came back several times, after they had reached the day’s destination, to help us with our own bags. I had never experienced that with other porters we had so far. Don´t hesitate to ask further questions, I am happy to answer, and had a good time there. Best wishes, and namaste (as a training for Nepal )

3 Passes Trek Experience

Rated 5 out of 5
December 12, 2018

Great experience on the 3 passes trek end of November. We choose Gokyo Treks and Expedition to arrange our trip to the Himalayas. Ammar booked accommodation for the Kathmandu city tour and 3 passes for adventure travel. Felt very safe throughout the trip with my guide Som Shrestha. Recommend yak tracks on the passes around this time of the year and a good sleeping bag, as it was sometimes – 5 degrees Celsius at night inside the room.

The 3 passes hike price were very competitive, hilltops are offering terrific views but the trail is often sleeper and snowy. The trip was not the easiest nor dangerous. Other than that, we are totally happy with the Gokyo Treks agency service. – Patrick and Robbins Derby, in North Hollywood, California.
