Equipment Checklist

(place the above paragraph above the list on the equipment checklist page) This list includes clothing and equipment necessary for a trek in Nepal. You will need to equip yourself well but you must create a balance between bringing too much and bringing too little.  Your final trekking bag should be no more than 15 kg (33 pounds). The list below is a general list for both teahouse and camping treks, and we will suggest additions or deletions for you based on the actual trek or tour you book.  Please note that we can help you rent locally manufactured gear (e.g. sleeping bags, down jackets, etc.) and advise you where to purchase other necessities when you arrive.  Most travelers find decent, adequate gear relatively inexpensive to acquire here in Nepal.  We do strongly suggest you bring your own quality footwear.
