  1. I would be trekking with India Hikes on the Deoriatal Chandrasila trek in March 2017 and I would like to know whether I should carry one trekking pole or two. I also carry with me two DSLRS with mounted lens on a shoulder harness and the suspended cameras reach my elbow joint on either side.

    1. One trekking pole would suffice. It is not a bad idea to take two poles, but given that you already have a lot of added gear with you, one will be enough. Also reconsider taking two DSLRs. On a trek that could be a LOT of added weight. One DSLR with 2-3 light lenses would be a better option.
