During your trek, you will be responsible to carry a day pack with just your essentials for the day: drinking water, rain gear, an extra layer in case you get cold, your camera, and any personal items you want to have easy access to (e.g. chewing gum, hairbrush, etc.). Choose a day pack that is large enough to carry your essentials and designed for durability and comfort.
The rest of your gear should be packed into a larger backpack or duffel-style bag (without wheels) to be carried by a porter on your trek support crew. Park regulations limit porters to carrying a maximum of 15 kilograms (about 33 pounds) so be very careful not to overpack for your climb. We can provide storage for any extra luggage during your trek.
We offer a selection of mountain gear that can be rented for your climb to save you the expense and effort of buying it and bringing it with you. Rental gear requests should be made at least 2 weeks prior to the trek to ensure availability. Payment for the gear should be made by cash in USD upon arrival.
