We have booked an 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, the 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 trekking, Ammar took us to a world heritage site of Kathmandu. Thanks, Ammar for arranging a great trip for us. We are hoping to be back for the next adventure in the coming spring season in Nepal.

Jiri + Three Passes Trek

March 4, 2019

For our trek, we were searching for a trekking agency to connect with a guide and organize the necessary permits and so on. We found Gokyotreks! it’s a company led by Ammar who responded very fast to every question and helped us were ever out was necessary.

On our Trek, we had our guide very nice guy. He did everything to make the trek as easy for us as possible. We had a very great time trekking and can fully recommend the service of Gokyotreks. At the end of our holiday, we had a few spare days and Ammar organized a trip to Chitwan National Park.
