A back Pack of the Rwenzori Packing List

Day Pack-Rwenzori Packing ListAs you pack for any Rwenzori Expedition, remember that your gear will be divided into two packs: your daypack that you will carry each day as you trek, and your duffle bag which will be carried between each camp/hut by porters. Other luggage can be left at the hotel before you begin your trek.

At the start of every morning, your porters will take your duffle and carry it up to the next hut. It will be difficult or impossible to access your gear from your duffle bag until the evening when you arrive at your camp for dinner and an overnight sleep. This means you should pack anything you may need each day during your hike in your day back pack. However, to make climbing/hiking easier, you should keep your daypack as light as possible—so only carry the essentials. This includes water, snacks, camera, headlamp, poncho, extra layers, and sun protection among others.
