Things to Consider
Pack essential items such as your passport, money, eyewear, a change of clothing, hiking boots and medications in your carry-on baggage in case your luggage is delayed.

Culturally sensitive dressing tips: For women, pants (or Capri length pants) and/or a skirt (mid-calf or longer (A-line style works best for hiking) is recommended. Tights, hiking shorts and sports tops are not advised unless worn under other clothing.

For men, pants are best. Men may wear hiking shorts, but they should be longer, near the knees. Men should never go shirtless.

Make sure boots are not broken-in. Bring moleskin or Blister Block for foot treatment. Thin liner socks worn under regular hiking socks may minimize the risk of blisters. The liner sock should be synthetic, not cotton. Test your sock combination before you go on the trip.

Cotton is wonderful in warm weather. However, once it becomes wet it will drain your body heat. Bring wool or synthetics such as Capilene, MTS and Thermax.

Bring a small ditty bag that includes a Ziploc bag with toilet tissue, spare Ziploc bags to dispose of soiled tissue, a small bottle of hand sanitizer and/or wet wipes. There are no reliable feminine health supplies available in Bhutan; women are advised to bring these from home. Your ditty bag will be carried in your daypack throughout the trip, including while sightseeing.

Gaiters are useful for keeping mud, debris, and snow out of your boots. Ankle to mid-calf length is ideal.

Stuff sacks are great for sorting gear. Use different sizes/colors to differentiate contents.
