I'll be going to Tibet and Nepal on the 25th June for your Tibet Expolorer trip. I was wondering what I would need to take?? I have no idea what kind of weather to expect. Being at 5,000 m HAS to be cold... but then agian what do I know? Would a sleeping bag be in order? Would it be shorts'n't-shirt or trousers'n'fleece? Or both?? I know you advise to travel light on your dosier but how light (ie in kilo's) would you recommend? I take it as red that a good pair of walking boots will be essential. Also, I'm no Chris Bonigton and so have only been upto about 2000 m but never upto 5,500 m before and am considering taking Diamox with me just incase the altitude sickness kicks in... good idea or not?
Ps. I'm REALLY looking forward to going. Should be amazing!!
