          Expensive, but what can you do? The experience is worth it and they give you huge quantities of great food.

          Don't expect to sleep at that altitude (if you're anything like me)

          it's the only hut in the moutain, local people carry all the food and goods from the bottom of the mountain. this makes it so expensive. the food is good here. bedding is not so clean, but warm enough to have good sleep without sleeping bag. no hot shower is avaliable during our stay

          Unless you are one of the few people that can reach the summit in less than 4hours, you will need to book a night in one of the limited mountain side hotels. All owned by the same company, they prices are no set high. The un heated dorms are the cheapest, and come with thick blankets (although the showers are Arctic). The all inclusive food is good, and you can get a good fill, but be aware that luxuries (chocolate, sweets) and other items for sale in the hotel are extremely inflated as it all has to be carried up the mountain by porters
