Went with All Transport Tours, for the 3 day. Paid around 700 I think. Amazing scenery. Top guide. Tough climb, the hardest thing I've ever done in my life, but praise God, I summited the 6088m successfully. Go for it.

Hi there January is not the best time to climb , you can go by yourself as a private tour for one person it does cost more. As it’s the low season there are not groups leaving every day. Jeff
