Trekking Gear Renting Tips and Advice:
- If you don't trek often and use trekking equipment for rare occasions, it is better to rent.
- We highly recommend you buy good hiking boots and bring comfortable clothes from home.
- Don't opt for knock-off products every time; sometimes, it hurts to buy cheap ones.
- If you have decided to rent trekking equipment, make sure you are ready to deposit a hefty amount (Rs 7000 approximately.) The rental shop shall return the money after you return the rented stuff.
- Before you buy or rent, make sure to look for positive reviews. Some shops may disappoint you!
- Always be ready to bargain unless you see the FIXED-PRICE tag.
