Carrying heavy packs is just a way of life in the high Himalayas where there are no roads. Dhan Bahadur Gurung is from Barpak, Gorkha, Nepal and grew up without cars or trucks. From a young age, he learned to carry packs as well as to walk sure-footed on the narrow trails between villages. He’s done a number of 5000+ meter passes with ease while carrying heavy packs. He’s fun to be with, has a great sense of humor and is very reliable.
