Do I need a backpack for this trip or is a small suitcase okay?
Regarding the luggage, one small soft-sided bag (small soft suitcase or duffel is ok) plus a simple day pack is essential. We recommend no more than 15-30 kgs maximum per person. We also recommend not bringing hard or externally framed suitcases as they are difficult to store and can damage equipment and other travelers’ belongings. Since your trip is beginning and ending at the same location, excess luggage can be stored at your arrival/departure hotel and can be collected after your trip.
