Carrying Backpack or Offloading on Dayara Bugyal Trek


Recommended Posts

Mainak here from West Bengal.  I am planning to go for Dayara Bugyal trek . The thing is , few months ago i had a surgery on my right shoulder, so it would be difficult to carry back pack of  8 or 10 kgs for 6 days .  This would be my first trek  and i m asking is there would be porter option or what any other options are available. It would be better to know about the charges for the same. Thanking you..

Hi Mainak, it's really nice to know that you are planning for a high altitude trek. I hope you are completely recovered.  
At Indiahikes, we strongly believe that trekkers should carry their own backpacks. This is because we embrace our culture of trying to be simple and frugal in what we do. As trekkers, it also makes one self-reliant and helps in engaging with the true spirit of trekking.  A backpack should not weigh more than 6-7kgs if you pack right. 
Keeping in mind your injury, we do have option of offloading. The charges vary from trek to trek. However, for Dayara Bugyal it is going to be 1200/- + 5%gst.

I am sharing an article with you that will help you to understand why we do not encourage offloading and some tips to carry your backpack.

Before you book the trek, I'd advice you to consult your doctor once because you will have to carry your daypack even if you offload.

Hi Mainak,

Adding on to Debadrita's points, here is a video I found about few exercises that you can do to strengthen your shoulder and hips.  Which makes you carry your backpack easily.

Hope this helps 🙂
