Equipment – the latest high-tech fashion trends in high-mountain tourism

This is the equipment of MagicKervan during our two-month treks in Ladakh region in the Himalayas. With it (and before we bought some things even without it) we passed 700 km. on foot in the Himalayas.

Mr. Shushtari’s life saving advises 

  • Don’t go in the mountain without adequate equipment. This may cost you your life.
  • Better to die in the mountain than in front of the TV with a remote control in one hand and a smartphone in the other.
  • The good equipment will help you climb many peaks in the Himalayas and sleep under the sky
