Being well-prepared is crucial for any trekking or climbing experience. However, for this particular trek, there is no need for any extra preparation beyond what is required for a normal trek. We recommend that you have the appropriate trekking gear, including a warmer down jacket, a sleeping bag, and hiking shoes. Additionally, it would be beneficial to engage in daily activities such as walking or going to the gym to keep your muscles active. Walking 2-3 hours every day is also recommended to help make your trek more enjoyable and less challenging.
