Clothing and Equipment
Correct Clothing & Equipments are essential for a safe and enjoyable trek. Experienced trekkers will often take only a selection of these items based on what has worked in the past. Please find the equipment list below for your personal use during your trekking with us.

FOOTWEAR

RUNNING SHOES : 1 pair for casual Comfortable support shoes wear on lighter walking days. LIGHT HIKING BOOTS : 1 pair of sturdy hiking boots in which you should wear a light synthetic sock under a warm heavy sock comfortably, either wool or synthetic. Sole should be flexible but still provide enough support for your feet. Boots should be very water repellent. HIKING GAITERS (Optional) : 1 pair keeps rocks out of shoes and boots dry in case of precipitation. Optional if trekking pants are worn. WOOL SOCKS : 3 pair heavyweight wool socks to be worn over the liner socks. When layering socks, check fit over feet and inside boots. Remember to keep one fresh, dry pair of socks available at all times. Socks with padded shins are especially nice with boots. LINER SOCKS : 3 pair of smooth thin wool, nylon or Capilene to be worn next to the skin. This reduces the incidence of blisters and hot-spots and makes the outer sock last longer before needing to be changed. They should fit well with your heavyweight socks.

CLOTHING

LIGHTWEIGHT LONG UNDERWEAR : 2 pair, tops & bottoms, Capilene, other synthetic or wool. No Cotton. Lightweight is preferable as it is more versatile (worn single in warmer conditions and double layer for colder). Zip-T-neck tops allow more ventilation options. One set of white for intense sunny days and one pair of dark for faster drying gives the most versatility. LIGHT TREKKING PANTS » : Lightweight nylon pants designed to be used while trekking. They are extremely air permeable, dry quickly and provide sun protection. Zip-off lower leg sections are convenient for switching to shorts. T-SHIRTS : Lightweight crew style t-shirt that wicks away moisture. Shirt can be made of any synthetic material. BANDANA : Bring bandanas for face masks and other tasks. SYNTHETIC/SOFT SHELL JACKET : A full-zip version is easier to put on and has better ventilation than a pullover. INSULATED DOWN-JACKET : Medium to heavy weight with hood.

HARD SHELL JACKET WITH HOOD : We recommend a waterproof breathable shell material with full front zipper, underarm zips, and no insulation. This outer layer protects against wind and rain. HARD SHALL PANTS : Waterproof, breathable. Any side zipper length is fine as long as you can get them over your boots.

HANDWEAR

FLEECE/SOFT SHELL GLOVES : 1 pair. A heavier fleece will do a better job of keeping hands warmer when wet than lighter polypropylene or Capilene. SHELL GLOVES WITH INSULATION : 1 pair. Insulation does not need to be removable. A good quality ski glove is sufficient.

HEADWEAR HEADLAMP & SPARE BATTRIES : A good quality climber’s headlamp. For use at night, bring extra batteries! SUN HAT : The sun can be intense at high altitude. A hat with a good visor provides protection for the nose and eyes. Baseball hats work well. A Buff is recommended to reduce the amount of dust inhaled while trekking and reduces the chance of infection.

NECK GAITER OR BUFF : Buff is preferred for covering the face and preventing sickness.

GLACIER GLASSES : 100% UV, IR, high quality optical lenses designed for mountain use, must have side covers, leashes, and a nose guard is particularly helpful. No more than 8% light transmission. If you wear contact lenses we recommend packing a spare pair of glasses—it is a good idea to have these with “photo-gray” or equivalent light-sensitive material so they can double as emergency sunglasses. If you wear glasses we recommend prescription glacier glasses (gray or amber). Talk to your eye care professional to find out where prescription glacier glasses are available. Regular sunglasses are not dark enough and do not provide any side protection from the sun.

PERSONAL EQUIPMENT

SLEEPING BAG : High quality with hood to at least – 10 Degree, Down is lighter and less bulky, but more expensive than synthetics. (Company provide you sleeping bag for this trek) BACKPACK : A day pack big enough to carry water bottles, camera, lunch and extra clothing. 3,000cu.in. max ADJUSTABLE

During springtime, the average temperature is 22 degrees C (71.6 Degrees F), with a maximum of 30 degrees C (86 Degrees F), during sunny days and a minimum of -5 degrees C (23 Degrees F), in the morning and at night for areas above 4000 meters.

This is a difficult thing to gauge. We have seen everything from USD 20 to USD 500 per person for guides and porters.
