Fantastic trek through Gosaikunda
We had a fantastic time on our trek organised by Gokyo. They listened to our requirements and put together our ideal itinerary for a good price. The trip was faultless, an easy transfer from the airport, a great route and good accommodation. However, the guide (Bishnu) really made the trek. He was fun informative and really good company. Returning to Nepal, I wouldn’t want to use anyone else, thoroughly recommended. – Joshua Sams, England.
Brilliant hospitality, professional guides, best experience
My husband and I trekked to the amazing Langtang gosaikunda to Helambu scenic trek in November 2016 with kamal our guide through Gokyo Treks and Expedition. Ammar organised everything for us with perfection. We stayed at Ammar’s home after arriving in Kathmandu. What a nice welcoming.
We had an amazing time with our Trek guide who has almost 12 years experience trekking all over the Himalayas in Nepal and Tibet.
We had such an amazing trip. Pictures can not give back the natural beauty of the Himalayas. It was amazing to be in nature far away from civilization. The trekking was hard but it was well worth the effort when we reached the amazing Langtang and Lauribina la. All the villages had simple lodges with great varieties of foods.
I can not recommend enough Goyko Treks and Expeditions. Trip of the lifetime !!
Thank you very much, Ammar and Kamal, for the amazing experience! – Heiner Uwe, Dusseldorf, Germany.
