Notes:

Equipment hire: Items marked * can be hired / rented through KE Adventure Travel. Please make all requests at least 6 weeks prior to the trip departure date. All equipment is issued in Leh. Please remember to allow room in your trek bag for these items (note that on trek your mountaineering equipment including mountain boots will be carried separately in communal equipment bags. These will be collected from you at the start of the trek).

Mountaineering boots: Well-insulated single boots designed for Alpine mountaineering (minimum B2 rating) are suitable for departures prior to September. For departures in September or October the low temperatures encountered combined with high altitude mean that double boots with insulated inners (eg. Scarpa Vega HA, Scarpa Omega IT, La Sportiva Spantik, Boreal G1 light) are the best to keep your feet warm. These boots are also designed to take step-in crampons, quickly and efficiently. You must make sure that you are suitably equipped for these extremely low temperatures

Needle Sports (specialist mountaineering equipment shop): Needle Sports is the English Lake District's foremost specialist climbing shop supplying mountaineering, rock, ice, alpine and expedition equipment worldwide. Internationally recognised as among the very best of the UK's top technical climbing gear retailers. They have a good range of equipment appropriate for this trip and offer knowledgeable advice both on their website and in store.
