Royal Syaglung Danda Trek short review

Awesome Trek. Awesome guides.

100% 5 star based on – 161 Based on TripAdvisor Reviews

We did a 6 day trek through Annapurna Royal Syaglung danda absolutely amazing views. Landscape changes frequently from rice fields to snow capped mountains. Our trek was led by Ram who did a fantastic job teaching us about the history of the region and mountains. He knew the area so well and always knew the best tea houses to stop at for food or lodging. I would highly recommend Ram and the Gokyo Trek team to any planning a trek in Nepal. – John Rashkow, San Diego, California, USA.
