Chulu East Climbing Review

Chulu east peak climbing experience

October 10, 2019

We were a group of 2 Austrian climbers, started on September 22nd from Kathmandu to Chulu east peak climbing tour. Ammar made almost everything reservation for our trip. He welcome us at Tribhuwan international airport (TIA), and picked us to the center point of Thamel. Meeting our mountain guide Pasang, we arranged all the hiking gear together.

3 of our other porters were recruited from the agency also. They recognized almost all lodges and the local people. They were strong, friendly, and easy-going. Furthermore, Ammar´s rates are quite decent, much cheaper comparing other agencies. Don´t hesitate to ask further questions, I am happy to answer, and had a good time there.
