Support Staff Ratios
Normally we recommend 2 to 3 porters per hiker. This ratio with the equipment list will ensure your safety during the trek.
Weight limits for porters
The weight limit per porter is 15 kg (32 lbs) per climber. If your luggage weight more than that then you have to hire extra porter with extra pay.
