  • Sleeping bag (rated for 0 degrees F)
  • Sleeping pad (inflatable pad) – full length is best for insulation from the cold ground. Keep in mind that we do provide a closed-cell foam mattress pad, but this is not a comfort pad…only a thermal pad to keep you off the cold ground.
  • Water purification. Water on the climb is taken directly from mountain streams. (See the section Health and Logistics, under “Drinking Water” for details)
  • Plastic water bottles – (3) (1 litre-capacity "Nalgene" or other top-quality brand that can contain hot liquids as well. Wide mouth bottles are preferred by most trekkers. As you near the summit, keep your water close to your body, which will prevent it from freezing)

An option here is to purchase a hydration system like a “Camelback”, with water pouch & hose. It can free up your hands. If you do this, you should still bring at least two bottles in your daypack to refill your pouch, and ensure that you’re getting your daily 4-5 litres of liquid. You may need to abandon this system as you approach the summit. The hoses, even when insulated, freeze quickly. One way to minimize this problem is to remove the mouthpiece each time you take a drink, and blow the water back into the reservoir, which will keep the hose free of water. There will be some residual water that freezes near the mouthpiece, which will require that you bite the hose to break up the ice to free the flow of water.

Note: In freezing conditions, your water bottles will freeze on the top first. If you store your water bottles upside down (making sure that it’s closed tightly), you’ll be able to drink your water even with the freezing process underway. It’s better yet to use warm or hot water in your water bottles (and/or camelback) before your treks in freezing weather. You are much more likely to drink warm water than freezing-cold water.
