As well as your leader, we'll be supported by expert local guides and porters. On the trek to base camp, you'll carry only what you need for each day's trek or climb in a small rucksack. Your personal gear (e.g. sleeping bags, spare footwear) will be carried in a duffel bag or rucksack on mules. On the moves to higher camps, you’ll carry all of your own personal gear. Our local porters will assist us to move communal gear. You can hire a personal porter locally at your own cost. We'll have a minimum guide-to-client ratio of 1:4. All food on the mountain is provided, and we'll eat on the mountain in a communal dining room with chairs and table at base camp, and in our double tents at higher camps. Sufficient fresh water will be provided daily to ensure you stay hydrated
