    Shall we need the special sun glasses as used on glaciers?

  4. Waliqum Salam Brother,

    Thanks for your comments & reading my post.

    Below are answers to your questions:

    What is the max and min temp during day and night? or at least cold condition? or at least recommend the clothing for the trek.
    Before explaining, plz note down that in these mountain areas in the morning the temperature will be cold but you guys might not feel it because you will be doing walk & walk so during the walk wear cotton trouser and full sleeve t-shirts to protect from sun burn on your arm. And in the night as it will be freezing so get warm legging & warm full sleeve t-shirts, sleep in sleeping bag. It is also possible that you may have rain at night so the it will get more colder and temp may go down so be prepared for that. Also, you guys may get monsoon early & KKH might block, so it would be better to keep yourself updated about the weather and treks ahead of you. At Rupal the Temperature will be 10° ~ 12°, At HERRLIGKOFFER Base Camp the temp will be more down as you guys will go on more height and temp will go more down and rain is a must, so be prepared for rain and please get PONCHOS with you guys to protect from rain.

    What food items you recommend for us for this trek?
    For that please read my post’s section THINGS TO TAKE at http://www.naqoosh.com/rakaposhi-base-camp-trek/

    Shall we need the special sun glasses as used on glaciers?
    No need to get special sun glasses just use ordinary sun glasses.

    Can we go from Herlingkofer to Shaigiri in a single day?
    Yes you can but please note down the distance from HERRLIGKOFFER Base Camp to LATBOH is about 3 Km and from LATBOH to SHAIGIRI is about 5.5Km so it totally depends upon your team fitness and stamina :)
