- Balaclava/woollen cap: A warm cap to keep you warm on low temperatures.
- Sun cap: Protects you from exposure to sunlight. The sun at high altitudes is harsh and while trekking you need to avoid direct exposure of head to sun.
- A warm inner thermal is a primary requirement: Keeps you warm, trapping your inner body head. So, a good quality thermal is very essential.
- A set of two to three t-shirts, preferably full-sleeves: Wearing two or three layers while trekking is enough. And at the campsite covering your body with thermal layer, t-shirt and then fleece is very comfortable and recommended.
- Down jacket: A not very thick down jacket serves the purpose of keeping you warm by guarding you against the chilling winds.
- Fleece: A good fleece helps you keep warm, while you rest at your campsite.
- Raincoat/poncho: Protects you against the rains, hails and snow.
- A warm inner thermal of good quality: Keeps you warm.
- A warm lower: A comfortable lower makes your stay pleasant at the campsite.
- Two pairs of quick-dry pants/ tights will be enough: Makes your trek easy, are light-weight and easy to carry.
Shoes and socks:
- At least three to four pair of socks, preferably cotton.
- A good pair of hiking/trekking shoes works fine, preferably high-ankle trekking shoes, so that you have a extra precaution in avoiding ankle-twist.
- A pair of flip-flops.
Other trek-essential body gears include:
- A pair of polarized sunglasses. Highly recommended: Without this walking on the snow won’t be allowed. And also, do carry a lace attached to your goggles, so you don’t lose them in the snow. Protects you from Sun- blindness.
- Synthetic hand gloves: Avoid woolen gloves as they get wet when you expose them to snow. You can add a fleece glove if you’re more susceptible to cold.
