I recommend you have the following items: trekking boots, full bottle, full backpack, closed assistance bag. There will be bag transfers available when the paths are accessible by road. When it is not possible, you should have a sleeping bag, and personal belongings needed for nights in refuges or sheepfolds. There are no ATM machines on the trek, and only in Vizzavona, Vergio and Ascu credit cards are accepted. Thus, you should bring enough cash for your personal expenses.
