-2450$ per person – we understand prices vary a lot from 1600$ – 5800$ learn why our price is a great deal & ethical (crew are fairly paid, as most companies’ exploit crew especially the hard working porters) – see price breakdown 

Why should you consider companies paying porters fairly, example? Porters categorically are low income individuals, porters are hired per hike, porters carry 20kg along with about 5 – 8kg of their personal gear up the mountain, at higher altitude last camp porter will descend to the previous camp to take water supply, for all this work the minimum required wage by law is 10$ a day but companies will exploit porters mostly to price compete. With us porters are paid fairly & when you tip, its received as a tip & not a wage correction you are not aware of. & we recommend tipping as it goes a long way in the daily lives of the crew.
