Nagarjun Hill Hiking Traveler’s Review

Short Hike in Najarjun Forest Hill

April 11, 2022

I and my wife booked a Nagarjun hill day tour after the completion of Annapurna with Gokyo Treks and Expedition. From the initial inquiry to the end of the trip the company was very impressive.

Ammar – the founder of the company was extremely efficient. He answers all of our emails and messages by return. We were extremely fortunate to have Ammar Guni as our local Tour Guide.

They were both extremely kind and always wanted to ensure we were safe and happy. Nagarjuna hill day hiking was just awesome. Their customer service is excellent, so I would definitely recommend and use this company again.
