Neglect still happens

Two trekkers have contacted IPPG recently, distressed by porter mistreatment they saw up in Langtang, Nepal:
“on the Langtang trail we repeatedly saw porters in flip flops bearing loads that had to exceed 30 kg. On 7th November 2013 we saw a group of about 20 French trekkers who had some of the worst clothed porters with heaviest loads. Another example was a Japanese group using female porters who must have been carrying twice their weight on their backs. ”
If anyone has further information please contact IPPG.
