Hey yeh ill be taking a mountain equiptment lightline down jacket. altho iv got a few mates who just got back from there and they had problems with extremely cold feet above 4000m. they advised buying a cheap set of down booties / sock from KTM
about 5-10 quid but well worth it.

Hi Adam,

I am booked for the 5th March departure from LHR. Really looking forward to it. Have you got anything planned in they way of prep/training?

I will be taking my own down jacket. Check out how long you have in KTM. I think our tour arrives mid-pm and leaves for Lukla early next morning so not a lot of time to check out shops etc. Not sure about hiring stuff but there are loads of places in Thamel to buy cheap gear, a lot of which is counterfeit. One lad bought a very cheap "North Face" down bag (about 30 quid as I remember) last time I was there and that seemed to withstand the rigours of a couple of weeks trekking. I am sure the tour guide will be able to advise on reputable places to spend your cash.

Hi, we are going on the 12th so will probably meet you on your way back.
Can I ask if your planning on taking down jackets or hiring there?
