48 days to Nepal.

As much as I would love to carry my own gear, I recognize that it is impractical as we become acquainted with the vastly different and difficult environment in the Himalaya. So, Sophia and I will have porters to carry most of our gear, along with their own gear (however minimal) and camping equipment.

Side note: Porters sometimes do not have shoes, do not wear their shoes, or sell their shoes. Ours will definitely have shoes, but perhaps they will want to be bear footed in the lowland valleys.
