This depends on how much luggage you will bring along with you on the trek. We usually use one porter for every two hikers. The porters will carry the equipment that we will need during the hike such as camping tent, cooking equipment, food, water… You will need to bring a day pack to carry your personal items such as water, snacks, camera, warm sweater and rain jacket. If you don’t want to carry this while hiking, you can book an extra porter (extra cost). The porter will take care of these items, and he will walk with the group (8kg max).
