What to bring

For trips to Nakochna, coming prepared with the right clothing and equipment is essential for comfort, enjoyment, and safety. In the mountains of Alaska, the weather can change fast from sunny and warm, windy and wet. Temperatures during the day can range from 40-80 degrees Fahrenheit, and evenings are usually cool and comfortable, but can also be chilly. In general, the weather is quite pleasant but it is good to be prepared!
