Manaslu and Annapurna High Pass Trek Review

Larkya La + Thorong la High Pass Trek in Nepal.

October 29, 2021

A colleague of mine recommended Ammar and his agency Gokyo Treks and Expedition highly for our hike in the Himalayas in October 2021.

We search his company via google and asked various questions. The agency owner Ammar Guni answered all of our questions quickly which was very important for us to prepare for our private trip over the high passes in Annapurna and Manaslu. He advised what to bring and how to prepare hiking gears to cross Larkya la and Thorong la pass without AMS (Altitude Mountain Sickness).

He asked for a trip deposit in advance to avoid any troubles while getting a Nepal visa. We have booked almost everything like a guide, a porter, all permits, and the guest houses en route. Ammar made all hiking permits and sent them via email.

We got a Nepal visa easily and quickly made all permits. We did Larkya La pass and Thorong la pass without any sickness. Our guide Lila and Bude Waiwa porter were just friendly. Reaching Muktinath temple, the weather turned bad, with no sunny clouds. So canceled Jomsom flights and went to Pokhara by Bus. All in all, everything went well and we enjoyed our trip very much.

Thank you Ammar and his team of Gokyo Treks Agency providing us with great staff, we highly recommend your agency to everyone

Ammar Raj Guni is a perfect and very reliable agent for arranging your trekking. He has also much experience as a guide, so he always knows what he is talking about. His prices are really competitive. His calculations were transparent, our trek was some days longer than arranged, but in the end, we got no unexpected costs. He works with local people from the small villages and he treats them very socially. So during the two days, we stayed at his house, we felt very comfortable. I strongly recommend his agency if you’re visiting Nepal.
