I want to tell you the both faces of the same reality, as mutual respect and empathy towards the locals is essential for a mountaineer. Time goes by and they continue there and we don't. In summer each load is 25 kg and in winter 20 kg. Therefore, with good logistics and planning we wanted to avoid the battle that is usually formed in Askhole (left video) when sharing the loads among the porters and even at the time of the selection of workers from different villages. We wanted to change it for a more organised way (right video). In this way, the economic distribution is more fair, taking into account that nearly 90% of the locals live on tourism.
