Hiunchuli Peak Climbing Traveller’s Review

Best Experience for Hiunchuli climb

Rated 5.0 out of 5
April 3, 2018

We were a group of 2 Germans (me and my wife) and we started on October 15th from Kathmandu to Hiunchuli peak climbing tour. Ammar made almost everything reservation for our trip such as flight tickets, private coach, jeep, hotel reservation, climbing guide..etc along the trek.

Ammar welcomed us at Tribhuwan international airport (TIA), and picked us up at the center point of Thamel. Meeting our mountain guide Nawang, we arranged all the hiking gear together.

4 of our other porters recruited from Ghandruk village, 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 others. Don´t hesitate to ask further questions, I am happy to answer, and had a good time there. Best wishes, and namaste from.
