Bring the highest SPF sunscreen you can find and wear a hat at all times. The sun’s rays are exceptionally powerful at altitude and you will find yourself especially exposed when there isn’t a cloud in the sky.

Walking stick: Highly recommended on most treks, especially for downhill sections. If you don’t bring a walking stick with you, then keep your eye out for a tree branch or limb that can be carved for the purpose.

Even if your meals are provided to you on a trek, it’s sometimes nice to have a little something to nibble on between stops. We usually bring a small stash combination of Snickers bars, a jar of peanut butter and crackers.

Always shop for backpack that is big enough to hold the essentials, yet not too big that it will weigh you down. Don’t forget to bring a rain cover to protect your backpack in storms.

Shoes may be the most important thing you bring with you so if you invest in one thing in advance, invest in a solid comfortable pair of hiking shoes.

Your shoes can literally make or break a trip. At the end of a long day of walking you may want to take off your hiking shoes and give your feet a rest. Flip flops or river shoes worn with socks are perfect.

You may be miles or days away from any doctor so be sure to have some basic medicines with you in case you (or others) fall ill.
