When calculating the cost of renting equipment, calculate using the length of the entire trip, not just the number of trekking days. Even though you won’t use the equipment on the final day it will still be ‘on the road’ and unavailable for others to use.
Please be careful with rented equipment! You are responsible for the cost of replacement if something is damaged or broken.
Which sleeping bag should you use? That depends on you and how cold you typically get at night. If you’re sensitive to cold, a warmer sleeping bag may be recommendable.
It costs $15 per day to rent the satellite phone. This cost includes 5 minutes of air time (incoming or outgoing calls); additional time is $3 per minute. All phone calls must be recorded in our notebook and the entry signed by the person making or receiving the call.
Please note that we cannot guarantee that the satellite phone will work 100% of the time. Inclement weather and other factors can interfere with the signal. This is out of our control and we will not assume responsibility for it.
