The reason I wanted to write about this is that I had suffered a lot for not having a good backpack during my trek in the Himalayas.
I had a 3 week-long trek to the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal which was fulfilling in all aspect but the luggage. I had an average cylindrical backpack which appeared to be strong and safe until the second day of the trek when some of its stitches came off and was a terrible experience. I’ve done more than ten treks since then and have used quite a few backpacks which I am so grateful to have and thus would like to share my experience and reviews.
This is not an ad post and I am not sharing any affiliate links to earn any forms of commission. Its purely to help you have a great travel experience as long as your luggage is concerned because I know what a terrible vacation is like.
