CLOTHING AND EQUIPMENT:good sturdy walking shoes are necessary, they should be already in use (we recommend not to use new shoes, that could hurt!). Clothing should be comfortable, warm or cool depending on the temperature: we advise dressing in layers (underwear T-shirt, t-shirts, longsleeved shirt, fleece) with technical material, which dries quickly, so as to minimize the spare parts. Essential a good backpack with a capacity of 50 to 60 litres (note that the larger, the easier it is to fill it with useless things), waterproof jacket and overpants, gloves and warm hat, sunglasses and cream, a water bottle, emergency food (some energy bars) and something to eat for lunch on the first day. Also do not forget the need for personal hygiene, wet wipes, a towel and a sheet bag (all sold in shelters). Telescopic trekking poles are recommended.
