What people are saying about Gandaki

Pilot was super helpful and really made sure i enjoyed my flight. We took off on the highest point of the hill, annapurna peak views and soared with eagles

It was great, not for the faint of heart, but the guys know their stuff, although it's quite rustic at times. We would do it again.

Great experience!!! What an incredible view! The guides were really attentive and available. Super professional agency! I recommend!

Depending on the weather, you can see wonderful views. However, it is expensive if it is an intermediary.

More exciting and acrobatic activities than expected

It would be nice if the pickup did not come on time
