Seven pass trek review

7 Passes Trek with Gokyo Agency

100% 5 star based on – 208 Based on TripAdvisor Reviews

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 where 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. – Johannes and Rico, Tirol, Austria.
