Notes:

We include 2 trail bars each day with your lunch pack. If you wish to take additional trail bars and snacks (not chocolate as it can melt) we recommend you bring these with you (or purchase them in local supermarkets) to keep in your trek bag as these can be expensive from hotels and refuges en-route.

We request that you keep the weight of your main baggage to less than 15kgs for the baggage transfers.

There are a total of two nights spent in mountain huts where there is no access to trek bags. Otherwise group members will have access to their main luggage on each evening. Sleeping bags are not required, as bedding is provided. However we recommend you bring a sheet sleeping bag for use in the mountain huts.
