Rental will be given at home or at basecamp?
Your rental gear will be given to you at the basecamp on the day you arrive.
In case you have rented for a trekking backpack, there will be cloakroom facility to keep your extra luggage and just carry what is needed for the trek.
We want you to travel as light as possible from your home. You can collect the rental gear at the basecamp, do the trek and drop the gear back at our basecamp. We will put it through our cleaning process and get it ready for the next batch.
Do I have to pay a deposit amount for the rented gear?
Yes. You will have to pay a deposit amount at the basecamp. This amount is to be paid to our store manager.
The deposit amount has to be paid for each item you are renting. The price differs from product to product. Here is a list of the deposit amounts for each item.
Deposit Amount Price Jacket 1000 Shoe 1000 Backpack 1000 Trek Pole 500 Thermos 300 Poncho 200
The deposit amount has to be paid in cash. So make sure you carry the right amount. Getting change at such remote locations gets difficult.
Are these rental shoes broken in? I don't want to get shoe bites?
All our rental shoes are already broken in. There are very fewer chances of having a shoe bite.
In case we have bought a fresh lot of shoe, you might be the lucky one to get a new pair. However, the quality of the shoes is really good. They are designed to avoid shoe bites.
You do not worry about getting a shoe bite.
