what are porters for.... take the 600mm L & some studio lights, and a generator....

Porters?.... my god what is this, the 1860s? pair down your kit!

I think you might misunderstand. There are no roads where we trek. Porters and Yaks are the main source of transport in the Nepal Himilaya. It is also one of the most important sources of income for the hill people. I'm not taking a porter to carry my camera kit. The porter will carry my back-pack, while I'll carry a photo daypack. I'm not as young as I used to be, in the 90's I carried my own pack in Nepal, but if I can lighten the load and provide a reasonable wage for a local person all the better.
