The best footwear for this type of route are light, ankle-high hiking boots with anti-blister trekking socks. The backpack should be 35-45 liters, loaded with the bare minimum, so that the weight does not exceed 7-8 kg (6-7 kg for women). The backpack and shoes must be of excellent quality, so it is best to spare no expense in this area. The rest of the equipment may be less expensive, but still made up of very light and breathable technical clothing. For the rain a good anorak and a parasol are the best solution, better not to use a cape.
