Specialist Equipment

For this trip you will also need to bring EITHER a set of trekking poles or a ‘walking’ ice axe*. This is a safety measure only for the crossing of the Larkya La, and you will not necessarily be required to use these. In certain conditions, the trip leader may issue ‘in-step’ crampons to group members for the pass crossing. These are small lightweight crampons which can quickly and easily be attached to any kind of walking boot.

The Nepalese are still traditional and conservative in the way they dress. Therefore to avoid embarrassment on both sides we recommend that you respect this and do not wear revealing clothing or sleeveless tops while visiting Nepal. Shorts are acceptable, but they should reach to just above the knee and be modest and for women it is preferable to wear trousers or a long skirt.
