Equipment List

This is a suggested kit list of some items needed when planning any type of holiday listed on our website. Clothing should be casual and hardwearing, easy to wash field clothes are best for most of the holidays. It is best to pack several thinner layers rather than one thick layer. There is a weight limit on trips (15-20kg) depending on the package you chooseIt is best not to pack more items than what you actually need on any holiday.

Please do not hesitate to call/e-mail us for further advice about what to bring or any other aspect of any type of trip. We are more than happy to offer you the benefit of our experience. Further helpful information can also be found in the sections of the detailed trip dossiers.

Notes:

Mountaineering boots required for our most of the climbs - We recommend warm, insulated and substantial mountain boots, as temperatures can fall well below freezing. Plastic boots with insulated inners (eg. Scarpa Vega HA, Scarpa Omega IT) and also the new generation of synthetic double boots (eg. La Sportiva Spantik, Boreal G1 light), are the best to keep your feet warm at altitude in these low temperatures.  Also, you can sleep in the removable inner boots to ensure warm toes in the morning! You can also use 4 season insulated mountain boots such as La Sportiva Nepal Extreme and Scarpa Cumbre for this trip. All of these boots are also designed to take step-in crampons, quickly and efficiently, which is necessary in the cold conditions. Please note that at high camps night-time temperatures can reach 10 degrees below freezing, and on the summit day wind-chill can bring the effective daytime temperature to this range also. You must make sure that you are suitably equipped for these extremely low temperatures.

Personal Tools& Spares

You should bring the following with you as a minimum. Whilst not essential, it is a good idea that you familiarise yourself with how to carry out at least some basic repairs e.g. fixing a puncture, changing an inner tube. Naturally the bike guide will always be happy to assist with any repairs, but due to the often remote nature of our trips, being able to carry out a simple repair can save time and inconvenience waiting for assistance.

Pump

Our Company tools and Spares

On all of our trips we carry a toolkit and a basic range of spares for emergencies. As bikes become increasingly part specific it is impossible to carry a comprehensive range of spares compatible with all makes and models of bike.

 ** Please ensure you bring any bike-specific spares which might be needed – such as disc brake bleed kits (and appropriate fluid), shock pumps etc).
