The equipments required for trekking vary according to factors like place, altitude and the number of days involved in trekking. It also varies according to what kind of accommodation you have chosen for your trek. If you are going to stay at lodges during the trek the equipments you carry will subsequently be lesser than what you will carry during a camping trip. However basic equipments like a sleeping bag, warm clothes, a durable backpack and water bottles are necessary for all kinds of treks.
During Camping treks, you will require tents, porters, cooks and other staff on such treks. Nepal’s trekking support staffs is considered the best and there are hardly any problems that trekkers encounter on camping treks. In the morning you will receive tea, followed by breakfast. You will have to sleep inside a tent of blow up mattresses. The campsite will normally be closer to a Nepali village on a site that has a water source and great vistas of the Himalayas.
While trekking, you need trousers, scarves, jackets, rainproof jacket, sunhat, gloves, thermal underwear, woollen socks and t-shirts. Carry a bag pack, sleeping bag and flashlight. You will also need a towel and toiletries including soap and shampoo. Carry a sun block lotion (SPF 30+), insect repellent and iodine to purify water. Don’t forget a pocket knife. We suggest that you carry minimum weight so that trekking can become easier for you. It is much easier if you take a tea house trek or just check in to a home stay as that would mean that you will not require additional porters or cooks during your trek. The cost would also go down significantly.
