    We had a wonderful trek with our guide Shreeram. He went above and beyond to provide a beautiful one day hike from Kakani to Bhanjyang, a short drive from Kathmandu. The walk itself was stunning – with regular, clear views of the Himalayas – and Shreeram was so helpful and friendly. It was also very easy to arrange the trek. Ammar, our point of contact, was clear and responsive. I would highly recommend Gokyo. Martha Meckenzie, USA.
