2. clothing

It is recommended to use the onion-shell principle with different layers, which are layered on top of each other to provide warmth and weather protection. Clothing can only be borrowed to a limited extent.
Up to 6000m: On trekking tours we recommend a light rainproof layer and an umbrella in areas with more rainfall. On climbing tours a robust outer layer (Softshell and Hardshell) should be chosen. A light down jacket is recommended for evenings and as an emergency reserve. A down jacket in combination with down trousers and shell principle is a good choice on an expedition at 7000m altitude (Baruntse, Pamir, Tien Shan) as well as on 8000m climbs. From Mountain Equipment:

→ A classic 8000m jacket (robust, relatively heavy) - Annapurna Jacket

→ Modern 7000 and 8000 Jacket (warm, lightweight) - Gasherbrum or K2 Jacket

→ For 8000m expeditions, especially Mount Everest, a down suit is a good choice.

If in stock, we can lend you a jacket (per week approx. €20,- / calculation over the whole period of the trip - both on trekking trips and expeditions).

3. shoes

The fit of the shoes and the fact that they have shrunk is crucial. From Miletus, LaSportiva, Scarpa and Lowa there is a wide range of mountain boots.
For hire, we work with local sports shops on our basic courses and for expedition events, Chamonix Snells offers a wide range of trial and error options.

In Kathmandu you can also buy or order some expedition shoes. Miletus' 8000s shoes are the most common.

4. hardware

We use technical equipment from Chalet Moser / Petzl and Simond for our courses. On most alpine and mountain tours the appropriate equipment should already be part of your personal equipment.
