Things to carry

1 A positive mind set and a healthy body!
2 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.
3 At least 3-4 pairs of track pants to be carried along. The material should be of quick dry type. It is essential because body heat melts the snow on your clothes and wet your clothes. Easy dry material avoid your inconvenience because of wet clothes.
4 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.
5 One set of travelling clothes. This set you can keep behind in hotel luggage and can pickup after trek.
6 At least 4 sets of socks
