For most treks an ordinary pair of sunglasses is fine, however, on extended trips at altitude you will require extra UV protection. Sunglasses rated at category 3 or above will give the required protection. Ensure a good fit to prevent light coming in the sides.
A sturdy boot with ankle protection is vital. Make sure they are well fitted and worn in before use in the hills. Hiking socks with good padding improve comfort greatly and help prevent blisters. Take a thicker wool pair for cold days and a comfy pair for camp use.
A good close fitting beanie should be with you at all times. A balaclava is ideal in very bad weather and can be rolled up into a beanie. A pair of fleece and a pair of waterproof gloves (or system gloves) is necessary. Ensure fleece pair fits comfortably inside the waterproof gloves. Consider taking a lighter fleece liner glove as well for back up if others get wet or damp and for around camp.
