Advice on safely storing a Laptop in base before trek?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, 

I'm from Mumbai and I'm looking to do the GoechaLa trek and also the Bali Pass trek this year. After the trek, as I have Work From Home, I plan to go to other places in Himachal and/or Uttarakhand and work out of hostels/homes there. I will have to carry my work laptop in that case. 

Now, I know that it doesn't make sense to take my laptop on the trek with me. And I obviously don't plan to. Thus, given the situation, can I put my laptop in a safe space somewhere before the trek and then collect it from the concerned person(s) after coming back to base? Would the IndiaHikes team at the base help with storing this laptop? Please let me know as I will have to adjust my plans accordingly as i need to get back to work as soon as the trek would end. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this. Looking forward to hearing your suggestions/advice.

I just went through the 'Contact Us' page and found this answer to my question: 

"There are no locker facilities in the cloakroom. We do not recommend you to carry your laptop to the basecamp. If you are getting any valuables like laptop, make sure the bags are locked and you inform the slope manager. But please note that you are leaving them in the cloakroom at your own risk." 

Does this still apply? If yes, would you have any advice on how I could go about this - considering that it will be left at my risk (which is okay with me)? Please let me know
