Great trek, run by competent people, a special guide called SOM and a nice carrier. Fantastic landscapes and unforgettable encounters. Gokyo Treks is the right agency to make a trek in Nepal!!! Thanks at all!. – Cristiano Lissoni, Milano, Italy.
In 2007, I trekked to the EBC and walked the Annapurna Circuit with Gokyo Treks and Expedition. It was a wonderful experience. I even spent a few days in Amar’s village with his family then. This year I planned to trek the Upper Mustang and watch the Tiji Festival in Lo Manthang with my daughter.
I started coordinating with Amar Guni since late last year. He provided a great itinerary. Communication was very efficient. Everything has been finalized.
Unfortunately, I got sick during my overland trip from Lhasa to Kathmandu and I had to cancel the Upper Mustang trek at the last minute. Amar was very considerate and sympathetic to my situation. I hope I would be able to return to Nepal in the near future and do another trek.
I highly recommend Gokyo Treks and Expedition to anybody who wants to have an adventure in Nepal.
