I am doing the three peaks (Gokyo Ri, Kalla Pathar & Chukung Ri) and three passes (Kongma La, Cho La, Renjo La) trek in the Everest Region during end of September to mid of October 2016, roughly 17 days. While shoes generally depend on individual comfort & preference, I wanted to get a general sense of the type of shoes that beginner trekkers use in this region.
So far I have short listed the following two,
- Northface: thenorthface.co.uk/tnf-uk-en/men-s-verbera-h… | 1.2 KG
- Scarpa: cotswoldoutdoor.com/scarpa-mens-ranger-2-gtx… | 1.5 KG
Reading online people recommend going for lighter shoes rather than trekking boots... Any suggestions or pointers will be greatly appreciated.
