Everest Panorama trek review
I booked the Trek with Gokyo Treks and Expeditions and from the initial enquiry to the end of the trip the company was very impressive. Ammar (Company Manager) was extremely efficient and answered e mails and messages by return. I was extremely fortunate to have Bhupal as the Guide and Milan as my porter. They were both extremely kind and always wanted to ensure I was safe and happy. The trek was amazing and I would definitely recommend and use this company again for trekking in Nepal there customer service is excellent. – Alison Shutt, London, United Kingdom
