Who is eligible to join this trip?
There are only 3-4 seats for this trip with the lowest cost for a 10-day scouting into one of the less-travelled regions in Sichuan. We are looking for someone physically strong and able to trek with us from the lowest elevation of 3,600m-4,800m. Expecting 2-3 days tough trek with at least two nights camping. You will need to carry your bag pack with your camping gear during the trek. We will provide you with tents and sleeping pads. You will have to bring your sleeping bags (-15 to +5c degree). Privately contact Tashi for what equipment you need to bring and what we can provide for you.
What Do I need to BRING for this journey?
Hiking boots should have thick soles and be high enough to provide adequate ankle support. Consider Gore-Tex-Lined boots for treks during the rainy summer months. Optional: a pair of sandals or sneakers for crossing rivers and wearing in camping.
If you plan to backpack, use a pack with a wild, cushioned waist belt and thin shoulder straps that will comfortably support the weight. On commercial treks, you only need a day pack to carry your daily essentials and camping equipment. 35-40L
The raincoat should be roomy, preferably mid-thigh in length, and have a waterproof hood. Rain pants can double as wind pants. Gore-Tex or high-quality coasted nylon materials are best.
One or two pairs of long-sleeved tops and bottoms made from wool, polypropylene, or similar synthetic fiber. Short-sleeved thermal tops are good on cool days while trekking.
Two or three pairs of socks. At least 1 good pair of wool socks. 2-3 pairs of cotton socks.
At least 2 pairs of light trekking pants and not highly recommend wearing short pants in general during the trek in Tibet.
Wool or wool mix with a high neck for extra warmth in the evening and mornings.
A fibre pile jacket is ideal for trekking and evening in camp and an Outdoor water-proof jacket for harsh weather.
Headgear. Cap for during the day trek to protect your face and neck from the strong sun. wool hat for the evenings and mornings
Two (at least one long-sleeve for protection from Sun).
Prepare at least 2 pairs.
Prepare a pair of foldable walking sticks.
Bring 1 or 2 bottles/ 1,5L or 2L.( We will boil water every morning before trek and evenings)
Sunblock and Lip balm.
Sunblock rated 50 SPE or higher is best. Use zinc oxide for a total blackout. Lip balms prevent burning and chapping; toothpaste can be replaced if you run out.
