Personal Items to bring for Trekking


As a general rule when packing for one of our wilderness expeditions please keep personal gear to a minimum. Clothing should be lightweight, dry quickly, and provide insulation even when wet.  Synthetic fibers are preferable to cotton on the river for this reason. For any other personal items not included on our detailed equipment list below, please feel free to contact us directly.


 A daypack.  It should be a medium volume daypack without a frame, and again, the most important criteria are how well it fits and works. 
Lightweight hiking boots or running shoes of good quality and preferably worn in are a must. For people who do not routinely walk in the mountains, light hiking boots are strongly recommended. Heavy mountaineering boots are not recommended. 
For longer treks and Higher Altitude treks waterproof pants, gaiters, additional socks and thermal hats and gloves are highly recommended.
Lightweight pants and jacket.  The brushed nylon pants and windbreakers made by a variety of companies are ideal for trekking and general travel wear. 
Long sleeved thermal, top and bottoms (long underwear).  These are synthetic clothing such as Patagonia Capaline which maintain their insulating value even when wet, and are therefore ideal for wearing around the campsite and on the river. The zippered turtleneck is particularly handy, as it can be vented and keeps the sun off the back of your neck. Light and medium weight weaves are the handiest. 
Socks: Two pairs of polypropylene or polypro mix athletic socks.   
Cotton underwear.
Lightweight long sleeved shirt. These are particularly useful as sunscreen in camp. In addition temperatures in the shade remain cool throughout the season
Two cotton T-shirts. 
A fleece jacket.  Polypropylene is preferable.
A Gore-Tex or similar material raincoat and pants.  This will keep you warm and dry in a variety of situations. A simple shell design is preferable, as they can be packed away into very small bundles.
Small Towel
Toiletries: keep it to a minimum.  Bring plenty of moisturizing lotion.  
Spare glasses or contact lenses if you wear them. 
Flashlight or headlamp with spare batteries.  
Water bottle 
Toilet paper and lighter –We do provide it on all trips, but also advise you carry your own supply for convenience. The lighter is for burning the toilet paper after you’ve used it. 
Insect Repellent: Our Nam Lang river camp has screened areas where insects are not a problem, but while trekking and rafting in the jungle bring plenty of insect repellent.
Lightweight cotton gloves are also handy as additional insect protection.
Sunscreen (SPF 15 or greater and waterproof) is essential 
Lip Balm, SPF 15 minimum


Optional: 
Camera and film. Also bring a good cleaning kit, as field conditions are harsher than in towns.  Spare batteries are also handy. There will be waterproof Pelican Cases supplied on the rafting trips. Packets of silica gel will help reduce humidity in the camera case. 
Small binoculars for wildlife viewing.  If you’re an avid bird watcher you may want to bring a more substantial pair of binoculars with a waterproof case.  
Pocketknife or multi-tool.
