Colours of Nepal – Short Solo Trip (7 Days / 6 Nights)
My solo trip to Nepal was a pretty last minute decision. I decided to go ahead to book the flight and then hunt a guide. Ammar was the first guide I wrote to, and I picked him as my guide for this trip.
My few days trip with Ammar was great and relaxing. He’s always on time, with a smile 🙂 In the short few days time, he showed & explained to me Nepal culture, history, beliefs and always patiently answered my questions (I can ask alot of questions sometimes ).
I am grateful to have him as a guide. He made my trip hassle free (just follow him 🙂 ), navigating through historical buildings, lanes, multiple busy streets. It was a good experience for me to get a glimps of how the local lives, the food they eat, the prayer rituals they do daily, while visiting tourist places.
Also, I got to hear many stories from Ammar. If you want to hear ghost stories from him, ASK HIM!! 🙂
Overall, it was a simple yet satisfying trip, am sure will leave a lasting memory for me. I hope to visit Nepal again in near future. Nepalese people are generally friendly. I feel safe all the time while exploring this country.
Should you wish to engage Ammar as your guide, you should without hesitant. He has been a guide years He is good at planning your ite in Nepal – you can leave it to him. I’ll sign off now. Sending greetings to Ammar. “cheers, Wendy Tran, Singapore
1 day tour in Kathmandu city
As we were only passing through Kathmandu, I used Gokyo to plan and organise our time before leaving the UK. Ammar was most helpful, responding promptly to my queries and providing useful suggestions. We were able visit the World Heritage Sites of Kathmandu, go walking in the Shivapuri NP, take an early morning flight to Everest and surrounding mountains, visit Nagarkot and Bhaktapur during our stay. Drivers and guides were all provided which made life very easy. Ammar and his team did a great job. If we are lucky enough to return to Nepal we will definitely use Gokyo again. – Edinburgh Traveler, London
