Recommended Packing List and Equipment
When deciding what goes into your bag, it is important to check out the characteristics of the trek which you are going to undertake as well as the season/month in which you are coming to Nepal.
The important facts to check and consider include:-
- Weather condition (dry or wet season)
- Day time and night temperature
- Maximum altitude for the trek
- Characteristics and conditions of the trails
The clothing and equipment to bring must be suitable for the trek and season. Tabulated below is a list of general items for your reference. Nevertheless, do keep in mind that:-
- Most trekking trails in Nepal are steep and some could be slippery; and
- Sometimes it gets very cold in the mountains at night and temperature could fall below freezing point even in spring or in autumn and depending on the altitude that you are hiking at.

In the event that you are not able to obtain some of the listed items or have forgotten to pack them in your bag, don’t worry as there are plenty of shops in Kathmandu where these items can be easily purchased at a reasonable cost and quality.
