ITEM WHY YOU NEED TO BRING IT
Wide brim hat Sun is very strong. A wide brim hat will protect your face and neck. Although a baseball cap is o.k. do not forget that you’ll be exposed to direct sun rays at more than 4500m
Water proof jacket and trousers + poncho This is needed because it can rain at any time. It is wise to have double protection: jacket, trousers & poncho
Very warm clothes for high temperatures Temperatures during treks can go down to – 10 C
Sandals + 4 pairs of socks Sandals are very use at the camp for you to be comfortable. You need some pairs of socks because your feet will get wet anyway.
Trekking boots Trekking boots are the best way to avoid blisters
Ruck Sack 35 lts. For during the walks 60 lts for your stuff which is going to be carried by our porters or donkeys/mules/llamas accordingly Limit weight = 15 Kgs
Sleeping bag 4 season sleeping bag.
Torch + spare batteries There’s no electricity at the camps.
Thermal and wind proof gloves Temperatures during treks can go down to – 10 C
Strong sun block & sunglasses Sun rays get stronger as we go higher up. Factor 30 to 50 is recommended. Sunglasses with UV protection are essential
Personal cleaning stuff and wet tissues. Toiletries Wet tissues are helpful when you sweat during climbing. You need your toiletries to be clean during the Tour
Swiss army-knife + water bottle You never know when you’ll need a knife or scissors. Water bottle is essential.
Purifying pills There are no shops along the paths but plenty of streams.
Mosquito repellent (DEET) Essential on those treks where the Cloud or Rainforest is involved
Spare films and batteries for cameras Binoculars Batteries last less with the altitude and cold. No shops where to buy films or batteries, nor electricity available. Recharge you batteries before going on a trekking programme. You can see more details with binoculars.
