First of all, you need a guide and a porter. We went with Lewis Gadison (guide) and Henry (porter), who had been recommended to us, and for good reason. They were great fun and very helpful. They asked the regular price (25$ per day for...More

There's honestly not much cost involved - the fee for a tour guide is really reasonable, as are cost of staying at the huts (and I think it was per person). The whole atmosphere there is very loose and casual, and rates are... More
