The best experience in Hiunchuli peak climbing

100% 5 star based on – 191 Based on TripAdvisor Reviews

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), picked us to the center point of Thamel. Meeting our mountain guide Nawang, we arranged all hiking gears together.

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