Hi there , am gradually getting the last of my kit sorted . Have found a fab jacket ( Women's Cho Oyu Down Jacket ) which I am hoping will keep me nice and snug on summit night ( best thing is the jacket has an internal mesh pocket for carrying water so hopefully will not suffer from the dreaded water freezing ). Need advice on what gloves are best and also the best walking poles to take . Has anyone tried and tested the Rab Andes sleeping bags as this has been recommended ?
Finally , how much cash do people tend to take on this trip and how much is kept aside to tip the porters / guides ?
Thanks for any help /advice
