As to the equipment for trekking, your tour operator will do the big work for you, like the tent, cooking equipment, food, car, truck and pack animals etc. Even these facilities will be arranged by the company, you still need at least 2-3 months to prepare for your personal packing. When planning your clothing needs for a trek, think in terms of layers. Layers of clothing will keep you warm, but can be removed to gradually prevent overheating. During spring and autumn the night temperature in the mountains often dip below freezing, making warm gear essential. In the summer the days can be hot, requiring light cotton clothing. Adequate wet-weather gear is also a priority during the summer. Remember that the mountainous regions of Tibet can receive snow any month of the year, and always be prepared for cold weather if you will be trekking at elevations much above (4880m). Make sure that the clothing you will wear most often can be washed in cold stream water and dries quickly.
