It is always better to consult your doctor. However, we suggest you to carry simple medicines such as Ibuprofen, Codeine, Paracetamol, Strepsils, anti diarrhea tablets and diamox (for high altitude sickness).
During trekking, lodges serve bottled, boiled and filtered water, which is generally safe and have to be paid for. Because of environmental reasons however we encourage our guests to use iodine and other purifying agents to treat water before drinking. Bottled mineral water is also available everywhere.
What you want to wear depends on you but we suggest you to wear warm clothes during the Everest View Trek. A down jacket, thermal longs and top, comfortable trekking trousers, t-shirts, fleece, windproof jacket, hat, scarf, and gloves might be useful. There are numerous trekking shops in Thamel area of Kathmandu where you can get all of these items in both local and branded stores alike. Alpine Eco Tour may also accompany and assist you if required.
During trekking, you will be on a long journey for which you will need two bags to keep your belongings. A rucksack/duffel bag and a day bag for personal items. Alpine Eco Tour will provide you with a duffel bag which you can use throughout your entire journey and even afterwards. These bags are durable and hence perfect for any kind of trekking journey. While the duffel bag will be carried by the potters, you will have to carry a day bag on your own. A day bag is a small backpack that has enough room for everything you will need on a day hike such as lunch, water, extra clothing and perhaps a few personnel items like camera, battery chargers etc.
If possible, we suggest you to bring your own equipments. However, sleeping bags and down jacket will be provided to you by us. With regards to trekking poles, if you are used to walking with it then take them with you, as you will probably find them useful especially on the way down. They are not essential though and the walk is manageable without them. It is mostly a personal preference. If you prefer to take the poles with you on the trekking then you can either bring your own pole or buy it from numerous options available in Kathmandu itself.
You can bring a suitcase with you but it’s subject to normal airline restrictions. You can leave it at a hotel in Kathmandu. We will provide you the duffle bag which you can use for the trekking and return when your trip is over Your trekking bag (rucksack) must weigh no more than 15kg (day bag not included); Remember, travelling light is much less of a hassle, so do not bring things you can do without.
Our itinerary has been specially tailored to prevent any kind of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) while moving up to higher altitude. Normally, altitude sickness starts from 3,600 meters/11808 feet and above. You will be trekking at a relatively slower and gradual pace as part of acclimatization process. In the higher elevation there is less oxygen in the air and this is more so while crossing high passes. Our expert guides will advice you on how to avoid AMS and treat it when/ if required.
