Lauribana la is simply stunning, Great Company
I highly recommend using Gokyo Treks and Expedition if you’re looking for a cost effective, all inclusive, ethical trek in Nepal. Ammar’s attention to detail in ensuring our every comfort, from our airport pick-up in Kathmandu to our last meal in his family home after the trek, left us unwilling to go home.
On the trek, our guide Som was not only knowledgeable and professional but also an excellent companion in the remoteness and beauty of the Gokyo track. We have continued to remain in touch some months after our journey.
Aside from his excellent staff and service, Ammar’s work in the community is the main reason to use his company. Gokyo Treks and Expeditions is run entirely to benefit the people of Nepal, with the majority of profits being channeled into school building projects and disaster relief in remote areas. His guides and porters are well paid and their welfare is the foremost concern. As we were concerned about the ethicality of our trip, Ammar’s deep passion for the empowerment of the Nepalese people put our minds at ease.
