For walking: Bring light, windproof water proofs and a couple of layers for warmth as the weather conditions can be changeable on the mountains. It can also be cool in the evenings during the winter. Wicking shirts are recommended, and walking trousers are preferable to trousers of heavier material such as jeans.
General: Clothing should generally be lightweight for the day. However warmer layers and long trousers may be needed, especially at night and in the winter. You may also wish to bring a swimming costume and towel.
Luggage: On tour
The allowance is one main piece of luggage and a daypack. Remember, you are expected to carry your own luggage between our transport and hotel - so don't overload yourself.
Your day pack should be large enough to hold your water bottle, sun cream, waterproofs, a warm layer, snacks, camera, etc. You may also wish to bring walking poles.
We recommend that you bring a water bottle, torch, sunblock, sunhat, sunglasses and insect repellent. You may also wish to bring binoculars.
At your discretion you might also consider tipping your Explore Leader in appreciation of the efficiency and service you receive.
Although entirely voluntary, tipping is a recognised part of life in this region of the world. Some local staff will look to members of the group for personal recognition of particular services provided. In order to make things easier for you, the Explore Leaders may organise a group's tips kitty and if this is the case, they will account for it throughout the tour. Accordingly, you should allow approximately £15 for tipping.
