Description

The Scarpa Kailash GTX would be a fine boot to wear on a trek to see its namesake peak, Mount Kailash, a sheer-sided peak near the source of the Indus River that remains unclimbed to this day due to its sacred status in several religious traditions. It is a mid-weight backpacking boot with a durable leather upper that will resist the scuffs and scrapes caused by rocky trails and shifting scree slopes, and its waterproof GORE-TEX® Performance Comfort lining protects from stream crossings and soaking downpours.

The polyurethane midsole of the Kailash is stiffer than the EVA foam midsole found in lighter hiking boots, providing better support for heavier loads. The polyurethane also won't "pack out" over time - EVA foam loses a tiny bit of its thickness with each step you take, so eventually it doesn't provide as much cushioning as it used to. This isn't an issue with polyurethane, however.
