What to pack for a hiking trip to Velykyy Verkh

Don’t take anything you don’t absolutely need, because you’ll have to carry it. Don’t take extra shoes, better to take several warm pairs of socks. Don’t take personal axes or heaters use the communal ones. There won’t be time to read a book, so don’t take on with you. Don’t take food or anything else in glass containers. Take aluminium or plastic personal dishes and utensils, they are lighter than other alternatives. Pack sugar and grains in plastic bottles. Alcohol is forbidden during the hike! Any food you take should contain minimal liquid content (potatoes and tomatoes aren’t good items to pack).
