Ammar welcomed us at Tribhuwan international airport, and took us to the hotel. He introduces our mountain guide. With the help of our climbing guide Pasang, we arranged all the hiking gear together.

4 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 cheaper comparing other agencies. Don’t hesitate to ask further questions, I am happy to answer, and had a good time there. – Wolfgang Hill and team, Innsbruck town, Austria.
