Suggested Equipment List

Equipment of Trekking
Clothing and equipment play vital roles to make an adventure holiday experience great. Generally, we recommend not carrying heavy and lots of stuff and don't miss the essentials. Such needy equipment may differ according to the duration of the holiday, grade of trekking, level of winds/snows/glaciers, and so on.
The following required equipment lists are required for tea house lodge trekking as well as tented camp. Follow the lists as a basic fundamental – some of the equipment can also hire or purchase in Kathmandu before beginning the trek.
