Notes:

This is not a sustained trekking trip and there are only 4 nights when we are camping. On each of the camping nights, you will be asked to restrict your personal equipment to a few essential items, including your sleeping bag and camping mattress. This equipment will be separated from your trek bag and repacked into communal kitbags for the porters or pack-horses to carry. To help to keep these items clean and dry, you should take with you on the trip a suitable, large and waterproof bag, such as a plastic bivi bag, rucksack liner or equivalent. Your trek bag, with the bulk of your spare clothing etc, will remain in safe storage at the group’s hotel during the days when we are camping.
