Overall rating

2.0 / 5

1. Take really warm clothes with you. It's very cold up there. 2. You need some extra money. Toilets, by the way, are sufficiently available, but in the typical state, blankets and possibly mattresses cost. You are also harassed by camel herders and other flying traders. 3. You shouldn't take the climb lightly, especially the 750 steps are tough. 4. Don't forget to eat and drink enough as well as the flashlight. You can buy everything on site but it is not cheap. Otherwise you should enjoy the sunrise and the view. Fantastic. The monastery is also worth a visit.

Very Professional staff... the tour guide Ahmed was amazing... even the driver was very kind, helpful and attentive. I feel safe from start to end of the program... worth it! Earl Solo traveler
