7. The Larapinta Trail

The following is our suggested gear list for anybody preparing to hike the Larapinta Trail. The overall trek is very rugged with some steep sections and the temperatures are likely to be very high. Sun protection is very important, although it can also rain so light waterproofs are advisable. It is important to have plenty of adaquate wicking cothing; technical fibers like polyester, which dries incredibly fast, as well as polypropylene for warmth as the nights can be quite chilly in the desert.


While we take every care with our recommendations, please bear in mind that your gear and clothing should be chosen according to what fits you best. Items like boots and shoes in particular need to be chosen with great attention to personal comfort and fit. Only men's items have been listed below to avoid duplication. If equivalent women's items do not exist then alternatives have been listed. If you have any questions or need further detail, don't hesitate to contact us.
