Hiking and Trekking Gear - Hiking - Peru

Many people arriving in the Central Andes have their own gear, but top-notch equipment can be rented from a number of places. It's wise to e-mail agencies ahead of time to request certain gear, enquire about prices or make reservations. You can also buy equipment in Huaraz, but be warned that the prices can be inflated, though, if you’re in a spot and find you have to purchase equipment, you may be able to re-sell it once you return. Due to the strong tropical sun, sun protection (sunscreen, sun hat, sunglasses and long-sleeved shirt) is essential. Be aware that the region’s extreme altitude and tropical location mean that weather conditions can vary. Better to be safe than sorry; prepare for all conditions, especially wind and rain. A sturdy tent, warm sleeping bag and stove are must-haves
