No Porters in Caves

Here is a sign at Shira Camp, usually on Day 2. There are a few caves around where some of the porters and guides used to sleep at night. Make sure your porters sleeps inside a tent or a mess tent with the rest. Ask the company before you climb where the porters are sleeping. They should not be sleeping outside or in any of these caves. It’s too cold and some have died.
