Things to Carry

Sun glasses Sunglasses are mandatory for this trek, Curved ones will cover your eyes well. No blue coloured sunglass they dont block UV. Blacks, greens, browns are fine. Avoid multi tone sunglasses. Sunglasses prevent snow blindness. People who wear spectacles, choose one of these:
