Equipment and Clothing
Trekkers should bring all their gear in one large duffel bag and a small backpack (40 to 50 litres). Each day you will carry the small pack containing items that you might need on trek such as warm clothes, jacket, camera, water bottle, personal first aid kit and some snacks. For Mountaineering trips you might also have to carry an ice axe, crampons, harness and a helmet. The rest of your personal equipment contained in a duffel (or kit) bag is carried by porter, yak or pony. The maximum weight allowance is included in the Trip Dossier.
If you do not currently have all the items on the equipment list then a good option might be to rent from the UK or your home country. In the UK Trek Hire is a company that rents out high quality items at competitive prices which would save you the expense of buying. Alternatively if you plan to buy then our clients are entitled to a 15% discount at Cotswold Outdoor in their stores and online. Their promotional code will be provided to you on booking.
Please get in contact with us if you have any specific questions about your gear or seek further advice by visiting a reputable outdoor store.
