Ascent Trip ReportCompleted this hike with a tour guide while my two children and wife took a ride on the Mules to base camp. Non English speaking Tour Guides but still had a great time! Hiked to base camp and tour guides did all the cooking. I carried my pack filled with camera gear and sleeping bag while the guides had the Mules carry the food and the rest of the family gear. Hiked early start second day to reach summit for sun rise. Summit had frost on the ground and it was something of amusement for the guides that never seen snow. Hiked down in single day with an energetic young guide. Well worth the trip!
