Planning to book a trek to the mountains of Nepal? Are you wondering about the essential Equipment Checklist of trekking gears for your trekking journey? Then you should go through the Equipment Checklist that we suggest here.
We are pleased to offer our Trekking Gears checklist for your references. You can make necessary amendments to our equipment checklist as per your need and convenience. In case, you couldn’t get any of the following listed items in your hometown or be in rush before your flight to Kathmandu, don’t panic! The equipment necessary can be easily purchased in the shops in Kathmandu.
Again, if you are worried about the quality of gears available in Kathmandu then the majority of them are manufactured locally and some are imported from China and they are of awesome quality. Remember to keep your luggage as light as possible for a convenient journey. A porter is available for two people who will carry up to 20 kg in maximum, therefore, keep this in mind before you pack your bags!
Below is the checklist of equipment you need for the trek.
