    The less weight the better

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: 1 very small, comfortable bagpack

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: For hiking between monastaries: appropriate gear to wear for four days:

    - Sneaker or hiking boots. There are snakes (I saw 3 in four days) and there might be scorpions (didn't see any).

    - zip-up light-weight hiking-trousers

    - function T-Shirt

    - socks, underwear

    I suggest you wear the above on your body, and pack only in addition:
    - 1 pair of socks and underwear
    - 1 function T-Shirt
    - rain coat

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: very small pack, only essential basic things.

    Photo Equipment: - as much as you want to carry and need

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: - sleeping bag only if you plan to stay overnight on the peak of Mt. Athos. It might get cold, down to around 4°C even during the summer I heard, but they are supposed to even have some kind of bedding (to lie on, no sleeping bags) up there.

    Miscellaneous: - some food and water. Occasionally, depending on region and season, there are fountains to refill water.

    Take as little as possible. Almost everybody comes with a small (15/20 liters?) backpack that is half empty. No need to dress up, there are no women around anyways ;-). You don't need much for four days. Even if you stay an additional 4 days on request, you won't need much more. Wash once instead. It makes it so much more enjoyable to travel real light there!
