Climate & Clothing

Q

What type of clothes do I need?

A

Since Murodo-daira is located at high altitude, the temperature is about 12 to 15 degrees lower than that in the flatlands. You should, therefore, bring rain gear or warm outfits for cold weather in preparation for a rapid change in weather and other contingencies. For footgear, sneakers or trekking shoes are recommended. The Hotel lends boots for free (only to overnight guests).
