The difficulty in the height and heat.
In this trek you can not sleep in Logde, as in Nepal, there are no porters. There you go hopelessly tent logistician and all that entails, ie, with the food, and the kitchen in tow.
All the technical support was led by three mules and two horses, a mule, a cook and his helper, and guide.
Note that in India do not consider either the porters in Nepal, so they use pack animals and not people.
