Dressing for any outdoor activity in the cold is all about layering. Preparing for your trek is exciting. At Himalayan Hikes, we provide you with the best possible experience while trekking. So it’s worth taking the time to bring the right gear so you make the most of it. Packing for a trek is almost as exciting as trekking because you know you’re heading off on an adventure!

   SOCKSS & JOCKS:  Have at least 4 - 5 Pairs of each to keep yourself healthy while on Hikes. (Depending on whether you have the chance to wash and dry clothes) Always wear TWO layers of socks – thin ‘inner’ and some thicker wool socks (it's worth spending the money on good socks). Thin socks move slightly inside the thicker socks, so there is much less chance of getting blisters on your feet as the friction between your feet and the boot is reducedThin liners are easy to wash and your thicker socks stay clean and smell-free for longer It’s warmer and a lot more comfortable!
   THERMAL WEARS:  Travel with two pairs of long thermal pants, a couple of short thermal tops and one or two long tops. Also, add a couple of t-shirts or specific trekking shirts you get from a gear shop (these are expensive and t-shirts are fine ).
Tip: Make sure you wash your new thermals a couple of times with fabric softener before you go so they're not itchy.
   FLEECE LAYER:  A pair of cheap fleece pants are great for wearing in the lodge. If it gets cold during the day, a pair of thermal pants under trekking pants is usually plenty to keep you warm so it’s very unlikely you’ll wear the fleece pants while walking. You need at least one fleece top as well. Lightweight fleece top and one thicker one – one for during the day and one for night. Outer layer: This is for extreme cold and bad weather. These things are very warm and make life far more pleasant once you start getting above 3000m or so. It is essential if you’re going much higher or trekking in the colder months.
   WATERPROOF JACKET & TREKKING PANTS:  Don’t trek in jeans!
By all means pack some waterproof shorts for trekking in the lower altitudes (also good when you’re washing). Trekking pants should be lightweight, comfortable, breathable and quick-drying. One lightweight pair and one mid-weight are fine. If it’s really cold, wear thermals under your pants. Waterproof pants are handy.
Tip:  A webbing belt might also be handy – you WILL lose weight when you’re trekking and your pants can fall down.
   FOOTWEAR:
Crocs / Floaters / Slippers: Ideal for wearing in the lodge or dining tent.
Trekking boots : Water proof hiking shoes are recommended.
Gaiters are something to consider if you’ll encounter deep snow or mud – they keep the stuff out of your boots and keep the bottom of your pants dry.
   HEAD GEAR
   SUNGLASSES with UV protection & wraparound to prevent light coming in from the side.
 SUNCREAM: Good quality sun cream (SPF 50+) is a must. Pop it next to the head of your figure. At night or on a cold day a comfortable beanie (warm hat) is important.
   BANDANA or SCARVES
   WATER BOTTLE:  At least 2 ltrs.
   BAGS WATERPROOF:  Carry a few – one for clean clothes, one for dirty and one for electronic gear or whatever.
    GARBAGE BAGS:  KEEP TREKS AND REGION CLEAN. PICK UP RUBBISH.
   ZIPLOC BAGS:  Snacks, spare batteries and other loose items.
   TOILETRIES:  Personal hygiene kit with a few medicines like pain killers (avoid codeine at altitude), ear plugs, bandaids or blister skins, lip balm (a must), Imodium (or similar) for diarrhea (best not to take these but you may need to!), hand sanitising gel, eye/ear drops plus the usual stuff you’d take on holidas.

   First Aid Kit: All our guides carry a first aid kit on every trek. It will include such items as bandages, plasters/band aids, tubigrip/support bandages, iodine, dressings, electrolyte solution for dehydration, ointment for insect bites. However if you know that you might need some additional kind of medication along the trip, ie a particular support for a weak joint or medication for a particular allergy etc; then please bring this with you.
