Tent peak climbing review

Tent peak climbing was great with Nepali Friends

100% 5 star based on – 193 Based on TripAdvisor Reviews

We were a group of 3 Germans (me, my wife, a daughter) and we started on October 20th from Kathmandu to Tent peak climbing tour. Ammar made almost everything reservation for our trip such as flight tickets, private coach, private jeep (of course we paid extra cost), hotel reservation and booked clean rooms along the trek.

Ammar welcomed us at Tribhuwan international airport (TIA), picked us to the center point of Thamel. Meeting our mountain guide Pasang, we arranged all hiking gears together.

3 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 – Gehard sommer & Family Thuringia, Germany
