Phaplu to pikey peak or jiri to pikey peak trek review

Great company, Flexible guides!

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

We booked our trek to Pikey peak trekking with 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 Phaplu 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 pikey peak 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. – Dave Dellimuth, USA.
