What to Pack

What you need to bring will vary according to the destinations you are visiting and when you are traveling. Generally speaking our advice is to pack as lightly as possible, although on the vast majority of our trips our vehicle carries your luggage. We will be on the move a lot.

We highly recommend using a backpack, soft compact suitcase or light sports bag, whichever you find easiest to carry, plus a small daypack. Luggage space on transport is limited. You must be prepared to carry your own bags as porters are not often available.

What to Wear

 - a pair of hiking boots/sturdy sneakers
 - Rain Gear (waterproof pants and jacket)
 - 1 Lightweight Fleece or Wool Sweater
 - 2 Pairs of Nylon pants
 - 5-7 pairs of socks (polypropylene or wool are recommended)
 - 3-5 pairs of underwear
 - 1 down jacket
 - the long colorful shirts for taking the photos (recommended but not required)
 - Scarf
 - Gloves
 - A pair of slippers
 - Swimming suit (for spring hot)

In some religious areas, shorts are inappropriate and our trip leader will ask you to wear jeans or skirts to show the respect to the local culture and people.
