- Short and long-sleeved synthetic shirts. Ideally these are made of dry-fit fibers that dry quickly; not cotton.
- We suggest thermal underwear for colder weather. Ideally, these are made of synthetic, dry-fit fabrics, which will keep you dry and warm.
- Fleece, down parka, or some other warm layer.
- Waterproof jacket.
- Trekking pants, ideally resistant to rain and wind. Jeans are not recommended.
- Waterproof shell pants that you can wear over your trekking pants in the event of rain or wind.
- Waterproof trekking boots or light hiking boots; preferably with ankle support. Be sure to break-in new shoes before arrival.
- Sneakers or sports shoes for various other activities.
- Wool or synthetic socks.
- Fleece or wool hat or headband to protect your ears from the wind and cold.
- Sunscreen and lip protection. SPF 30+ recommended.
- Small backpack or hip-pack to carry sunscreen, water, camera, extra layers, snacks, and sandwiches on full-day hikes, etc.
- For inside the hotel: light, informal clothing (the hotel is heated).
We believe that the real value of a journey is not in arriving but in the things that happen along the way.
We want you to be able to interact with your surroundings, to unfurl and satisfy your curiosity, to learn about nature and people and to discover the geology, flora, fauna, history and customs of the places you visit.
We are not satisfied with simply offering passive contemplation from a distance: we want things to happen and we want you, ultimately, to shape your own journey.
To enhance the experience of your journey, on some treks our guides provide binoculars and telescopes from Swarovski Optiks, world leader in precision optical equipment.
Everything is revealed with amazing detail… an essential visual experience in terms of scope and clarity.
