Great company, Flexible guides!
We booked our trek to EBC via Ammar at Gokyo Treks and Expedition. He was very helpful as we had not booked anything but wanted to go as soon as possible. He booked our flights, organised our trekking permits, and guide. He also advised us how much we would need to spend each day whilst trekking. Whilst we were booking our trek with Ammar we met a guide who had just returned from EBC who told us what to expect. Ammar kept in touch with us during our trek to see how we were and to check the trek was going well. I would definitely recommend booking a trek with Gokyo Treks – everything was really well organised and easy, he gave us all the information we needed and the guide he organised was good. I would definitely go on another trek with Gokyo Treks if I visit Nepal again. – Sophie Boyce, Shropshire, United Kingdom.
