  1. The items marked with an asterisk in the list above are absolutely necessary for a safe

    find them.
  2. The items without the asterisk are not necessary but greatly increase your comfort in the
    mountain. If you can access them, we highly recommend that you bring them along. The
    porters will carry them for you.
  3. Pick brightly colored clothes for the trip. The high visibility comes in handy not only in bad

  4. Listen to the directives of the guide, and ask questions as they arise. The biggest asset that
    you can get from guides is knowledge.
  5. Be aware of the changes in your body. In case you have extreme symptoms of altitude
