20 things to pack before Trekking in Nepal

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

So you’ve made the decision to go on an amazing Himalayan trek. Congratulations! You will definitely have a great time. But what should you pack!? Packing too much or too little is one of those details that can spoil a trip, but how much is too much (or too little)?

The number of items of clothing you should pack will depend on how long you’re trekking for. The full Everest Base Camp trek, for example, will require a few more changes of clothes than, say, the Poon Hill trek, because it’s much longer. But on the longer treks you will also be needing to take rest days to acclimatise, on which you can wash a few items.

It’s unnecessary to bring all of this gear with you from home, as high-quality trekking and mountaineering gear can be bought in Kathmandu and Pokhara, and even en route on some treks, such as in Namche Bazaar. International brands such as Red Fox, North Face, Black Yak and Mountain Hardwear have attractive and well-equipped shops in Nepal. Furthermore, purchasing high-quality gear from local brands such as Sherpa and Sonam can help the local economy and make a good souvenir to take back home. (Via@InsideHimalayas)
