Packing list revisions

We thought we would post a few small changes to the packing list just posted so that you are all best prepared for our trip. Both the cold and the sun can be extreme in Ladakh, so pack keeping this in mind.

For the cold, we recommend bringing a 0 degree sleeping bag. A sleeping bag liner can add warmth to your bag as well (fleece or cotton). You will definitely want a hat that covers your ears and gloves. A scarf is also recommended. A gore tex jacket is also recommended, in place of a raincoat as it does not rain frequently in Ladakh. Rain pants are also optional.

For the sun, be sure to have a good sun hat (one with a wide brim that covers your ears), sunglasses, and sunblock.

Please write if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you soon!
