Your hiking boots and other footwear are one of your most important pieces of gear! Treat them as such. Rain gear is also essential but extra water bottles are not because there are always glacial rivers to refill your water. Read the full review

Hayden Payne - USA

Bring clothes for all types of weather! During our 5 day trek, we experienced intense rain, clear skies, hot sun, howling winds and clouds. Throughout each day, we would change what we were wearing to adapt to the weather. Good (waterproof) shoes, socks, and hiking poles are a must. Finally, no need to overpack: besides layers for weather, we each brought 1 day outfit and 1 night outfit and just wore those throughout the whole trek. Read the full review

Be prepared for all weathers – we had heavy rain, sleet then sunshine. The weather changed a lot so you need lots of layers and good waterproofs. Sunscreen is also essential. Read the full review
