Porters on the Trail

These guys are absolutely incredible- human cargo trucks each carrying up to 30kg at a pace that puts daypack carting trekkers to shame. The most often heard word on the Trail is 'Porters!'. When that word is shouted from behind, you have about a second to get off the track and let the group of carriers fly past, carrying everything that is needed on a trip like this.
