Trekking Equipments

In order to fully enjoy your trek in the Himalayas, having the right trekking equipment is essential – both safety and comfort-wise. The trekking equipment that is required depends on the type of trek, and on the time of year, weather conditions, terrain, and maximum altitude. However, below list includes many essential things that would be wise to bring on most treks.

A properly packed trekking backpack is light and includes multipurpose clothing items. Moreover, please make sure that you bring sufficiently warm clothes, especially during winter (Dec – Feb). Not having the required trekking equipment and clothing will not only significantly decrease the pleasure of trekking, but could turn into a worst case scenario.

Below is a list of Trekking Equipment Needed while trekking in Nepal.

CLOTHING

  1.     Warm jacket – down jacket, if possible.
  2.     Water and windproof jacket (alternatively bring a poncho or umbrella)

  3.     Bring at least one windproof layer of clothes, helping to reduce any chill factor influence
