Advised Equipment

  • Anyone who comes to this trek , in all likelihood will not need to read this page , but we prefer to be boring and repeat some advice on what are the equipment that we consider fundamental in this itinerary in low and medium altitudes . Keep in mind that at least every two stages you can reach the towns where it is often possible to purchase part of this equipment . Let's see :
    • high hiking boots that wrap around the ankle, with a lugged outsole, it is important to have a good cushioning of the heel, are also good low boots or even trail-running shoes (it is a bit subjective)
    • socks specific to trek, possibly reinforced in the heel
    • comfortable pants, preferably long, not tight, light. Provide a change
    • mesh intimate absorbent, breathable, a shirt, a fleece, a light fleece long sleeve, raincoats windproof and for light rain (k-way) or a light softshell, here are those who don't mind umbrella,
    • sun hat, lightweight bandana protective suncream, protective lip balm, sunglasses, short gaiters, a pair of gloves
    • hiking medium capacity rucksack (approximately 30 L is sufficient), at least one liter water bottle, mineral salts to be added in water, you can even think of having water bottles with filters (pure bottle) when withdrawing water from a source (impurities can be found)
    • packed lunch and some energy food and easy to digest (i.e. a good sandwich, chocolate, snacks, candy bars, fresh fruit, dried fruit)
