REQUIRED ITEMS

CLOTHING

Trunk

Dryfit T-Shirt

Fleece blouse 200 - 1 und

Fleece is a type of fabric with high heating power, low weight and good compression. If you want to invest in an even lighter and more compressible material, but much more expensive, opt for the goose down jackets. But be careful! There are several types of feather jackets, and many are NOT FOR OUTDOOR SPORTS. For more information contact our team. If you do NOT want to invest, it can be replaced by a regular sweatshirt, but it is highly NOT recommended because it is heavier, bulky and slow to dry if it gets wet.

Headlamp

Having the freest as well as the most comfortable is a matter of safety if you have to go on a more technical stretch with low light. In some itineraries we make a short attack on the summit in the late afternoon to catch a glimpse of the sunset, and the descent ends up being at night. If you make a point of not investing in this item, it can even be replaced by a cell phone flashlight, but it is NOT RECOMMENDED.

Trekking poles (optional) - 1 pair

It is written "optional" as many people take time to get used to using them. The benefit is tremendous: it reduces the impact on the knees by up to 30%. If using, avoid those with threaded or automatic lock. They are less resistant.

       

Water reservoir 3L - 1 und

Important item because dehydration at altitude increases the chance of having altitude sickness (severe headaches and nausea for example). This type of system avoids the "take and put" of the backpack, but it can be replaced even by pet bottles.
