We usually send trekking reminders to help you in packing. If you’re a team leader of your group, you have to ensure that info is properly disseminated among your team to help them pack the necessary things. Most of the time, Team Leaders were blamed by their members on the final trek date because they failed to forward or discuss these important reminders.
Please use medium sized back pack. It’s just a one day trip so the lighter, the better. Just limit your baggage from 3 to 4kilos.
You may bring the following:
- Camera and extra battery
- Umbrella or light raincoat
- Big hat or cap
- Towel/Scarf or Mask to protect you from dust
- Shawl/malong (this is important esp for the female trekkers)
- Medicine (Alaxan, paracetamol or meds for stomach trouble
- Sunblock Lotion
- Extra trail water
- Extra Trail Food
- Slipper (Mandatory)
- Swim wear
- Personal stuff: toothbrush, toothpaste, tissue, comb, shampoo, alcohol, liniment etc..
The principle, “the lighter, the better” is the rule of the game.
Lights shirt & your swim wear underneath
Short or leggings or quick dry trekking pants
Arm protection or long sleeved shirts/polo
Footwear will depend upon your preference but as per experience, the most convenient & safe are rubberized footwear such as crocs type of footwear. If you prefer to use trekking sandals such as tribu or sandugo, we strongly advise using socks to protect your feet from blisters. This happens most of the time. Don’t forget to bring an extra slipper, this is mandatory because if your shoes, failed you then you still have an extra footwear and will not walk barefooted afterwards.
