Hi -Booked on this trip which is now guaranteed and would be pleased to hear from anyone else mad enough to do the same.
departure date 10th...9th...please don't confuse me, i've a busy year ahead!
i'm daniel, and i'm also booked on this trip.
how are we doing?
i haven't done a huge amount of trekking, but i have done some.
i did kilimanjaro five years ago, and i've done toubkal (winter and summer).
the reason for me doing the trip is simple, it's above 6000m!
as far as the weight limit goes, i haven't even thought about it, but i'm sure it's nothing to worry about. i'll be going as light as i can.
so how about you, and your previous experience?
i think you'll be just fine with crampons. i've only worn them once, and i think i did so without falling over. i generally have a habit of hitting the deck at some point.
like you, i appreciate that it will be a tough trek, but i'm so excited about going above 5,895m, that i don't have time to worry.
hi guys my name is sunil, just letting you know that i am also joining you on the trip to stok kangri. i have some trekking experience which was mount snowden in wales which is just above 1000 metres, but thats nothing compared to this. i think i am practically insane for doing this but i know for a fact that this will be a life changing experience. cant wait!
just one other thought. havent looked through the info pack properly. Can someone please tell me what equipment i will need to purchase for this trip. I understand that certain things will be provided for us like for example camping gear (i think). but is there anything else specific i will need like for example ice axe or crampons (which im guessing is an obvious necessity) but anything else? and what kind of crampons and ice axe will i need. sorry guys im a newbie so im gona need a little bit of help here if you guys dont mind.
Ice axe and crampons can be hired in Leh although the quality may not be the best.Prepare for the extremes of temperature we will encounter-sun hat and plenty of sun block during the day and thermals and good sleeping bag at night.A down jacket is also handy for the coldest part of the treking day-late afternoon onwards when you tend to sit around camp.You can also wear it when sleeping. The Exodus equipment list is fairly comprehensive so if you use it as a guide you should be ok.I find treking poles to be essential.Hope this helps.
Hi Sandy - yes I'm getting the usual mixture of excitement & apprehension but really looking forward to it - I'm also planning a trial pack this weekend but I don't anticipate any probs with weight. Volume may be slightly different as I'm meeting my wife in Delhi at the end of the trek for a rather damp trip round the golden triangle as it's the monsoon there - she's having a girlie holiday doing very little in Dubai while we're walking (know where I'd rather be) so I need to pack for two holidays up to a point. That plus loads of air miles also means I'm not flying with Jet so I'll catch up with you all on the Saturday at the hotel - my flight is a little later I think.
