Things to carry
A postive mind set and a healthy body!
To carry your own luggage, you will need trek bag at least 48Liters capacity, depending on your luggage carrying tendency. We won't recommend you to carry luggage more than 65 lit as at that altitude it would be very tough to carry so much luggage.
At least 3 pairs of full pants to be carried along. We Recommend the quick dry material. Easy dry material avoid your inconvenience because of wet clothes.
Carry good sports shoes with enough anti skid pattern on the bottom. Sports shoes with good rubber sole are the best. Do not go for running shoes. They are usually insufficient and have tendency to slip.
One set of travelling clothes. This set you can keep behind in hotel luggage and can pickup after trek.
At least 4 sets of socks
Monkeycap (warm material). Avoid hand made caps. A monkey camp with thick weaving is recommended as it protects you not from cold but from wind chill factor as well.
At least 4 sets of T-shirts with long sleeves. Having collar is beneficial as it helps you add another layer to you neck to avoid cold.
Good quality hand gloves (warm) added with another set of hand gloves (waterproof)
