What equipment do you need for trekking?

What equipment do you need for trekking?

What types of equipment do you need for Nepal Himalayas trekking?

The following items are recommended for a typical multi-day trek in Nepal. Most of treks have teahouses ( Lodge)  throughout while others require camping and the necessary equipment. The size of your backpack depends primarily on whether or not you have porters are on your trip. Those with porters usually carry your duffelbag and you need to carry your a day pack with water, snacks, a camera, and rain gear. without porters will need a larger pack to fit all of their personal supplies and sleeping bag. Certain items can be purchased in Nepal but buying critical pieces of outdoor equipment is not recommended.


Sleeping

  • Tent (necessary for treks with camping) but not necessary for Tea House trekking
  • Sleeping bag (–15° bag will suffice on most treks)*
  • Sleeping Pad
  • Silk Liner

*Many nights at lower elevations will be hot, but because there will likely be a few very cold nights at a high elevation a cold weather bag is unavoidable. At low elevations you can sleep with the silk liner only and using it later extends the life of your bag (oil from the skin is bad for expensive down).
 

Hiking

  • Backpack (size depends on whether or not you have porters)
  • Hiking boots* (break them in beforehand)
  • Camp shoes (your reward after a long day)
  • Wool socks (bring a few pairs of varying thickness)
  • Lightweight trekking pants
  • Trekking shorts
  • T-Shirts (lightweight wool is great)
  • Underwear

*You will be hiking through a wide range of terrain from mud in warm weather to snow in cold weather. The trail will be rocky throughout. The safest bet for Nepal trekking footwear is full backpacking boots, which provide good support and protection from the elements. If there is a high pass on your trek, you may be walking on snow and the conditions will be cold. A good compromise is to bring backpacking boots and trail shoes—you can use the trail shoes for camp and interchange the two depending on the conditions and how you feel.
 

For Cold Weather

  • Long underwear/Wool thermals
  • Sweater
  • Fleece
  • Waterproof jacket and pants
  • Heavyweight pants for high elevations (also good for camp)
  • Heavy down jacket (can be rented in Kathmandu)
  • Winter hat
  • Winter gloves
     

Accessories

  • Water purification (pump, tablets, or SteriPen; bring from home)
  • Water bottles (at least 3 liters total capacity)
  • Baseball cap (the sun is strong at all elevations)
  • Hiking poles (lessen the impact on your joints)
  • Sunglasses (essential when you cross snow line)
  • Headlamp with extra batteries
  • Reading materials (Kindle may be best)
  • Journal and pens
  • Camera with extra batteries
  • Daypack (for your rain jacket, snacks, camera, etc.)
  • Heavy-duty duffle bag (preferred by porters)
  • Gators (many people wear them but they are not mandatory)
     

Personal Supplies

  • Sunscreen
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, floss, etc.)
  • Biodegradable bar soap
  • Face/body wipes
  • Biodegradable washing liquid
  • Throat lozenges, lip balm
  • Medications (Ibuprofen, others if necessary)
     

Extras

  • Duct tape (fixes just about everything, at least temporarily. To avoid carrying an entire roll wrap the desired amount around a pencil)
  • First aid kit (with moleskin for blisters)
  • Extra passport photos and photocopies of your passport

  • Well, what can I say, but d.a.m.b.a.r? Great guide as well as a good friend you can trust at Boundless Adventure Company. It started of being quite hard walking, but as the pays passed, it got easier and with lots of jokes and good company, it was a sensational trek, with plenty of tuborge beer, and heaps of surya smokes. The views were breath taking and the food was out of this world, I paged out big time with "Dal bhat" Nepali traditional meals. I was a bit lost in Nepal, but the mountains in Pokhara made me feel at…

  • 1) What a trek in Manaslu It was a second time of my Himalayan trip in Nepal. Last time I did Annapurna and this time, we did Manaslu Circuit Trek, which was an incredible journey through the jaw-dropping landscapes. The route is picturesque on all day with breathtaking views of the majestic mountains with lots of flora & fauna at lower altitudes. The Charm of the antique monasteries and Chhortens are outstanding. Having a group of 8 people, we had a good teamwork, while walking. We enjoyed exploring around Samagaun, Birendra Lake and Manaslu Base camp, including Larkey-Pass. Our guide…

  • I was fortunate to have Dambar act as guide for my wife and myself for our tour of Nepal. My son, who had used Dambar's guiding services the previous year, has recommended him. We wanted to see Nepal's beautiful scenery and to enjoy some walking but we also wanted to see the country's wildlife and historical sites. We asked Dambar to help us over two week period during which we enjoyed seeing the cultural and historic sites (Kathmandu, Patan, Bhaktapur, Boudhanath etc), the beautiful Annapurna region (Pokhara and Sarangkot) and the wildlife of the Chitwan game reserve. Throughout the two…

  • We were used Dambar's services as a guide on three occasions over the last 12 years to the Annapurna and Everest regions and most recently to Upper Mustang. I would be happy to recommend him to others looking for a reliable, well organized and conscientious arranger and guide for their trek in Nepal. He gives good advice on itineraries and can plan and reserve internal flights and hotels in advance as required. He also has good knowledge of the formalities (trekking permits, insurance) that you need and has arranged these without any problems at all. On the trek, he has…

  • "I travelled to Nepal in October 2010 and my friend and I hired Dambar to provide a guide and porter for us on the Everest base camp trek. We were in communication before we arrived in Nepal and everything was arranged for us at a reasonable price. Our package included flights, accommodation, food, guide and porter as well as passes and some equipment like trekking poles, sleeping bags and down jackets. The whole experience was amazing; we were able to go at our own pace and were confident at all times with our guide and porter. The guide gave us…

  • We came to know Dambar through a friend of ours who used him as a guide on a hike in the Annapurna Circuit about five years ago. Our friend had nothing but good things to say about Dambar's experience, professionalism and friendly personality. As it was our first time hiking in Nepal, we were happy to receive the recommendation. Prior to our travel to Nepal, we exchanged numerous emails with Dambar, making plans for our hike. Dambar provided excellent advice and answered all of our questions in a thorough and timely manner. When we had to change our hiking route…
