Things needed for trekking: The following things are needed for a typical multi-day trek in Nepal. Most expeditions have teahouses ( Lodge) throughout, while others require camping and equipment. The size of your backpack depends primarily on whether or not you have porters on your trip.

Those with porters usually carry your duffel bag, and you must bring your day pack with water, snacks, a camera, and rain gear. They will need a larger pack to fit their supplies and sleeping bags without porters. Certain items can be purchased in Nepal, but critical outdoor equipment is not recommended because you can’t get the quality things needed for trekking in the Himalayas.

 Boundless Adventure always provides rental Sleeping bags and Down Jackets for Everest Base Camp trekking, Annapurna Base Camp Trekking in the Annapurna conservation area, Manaslu Trekking, and Upper Mustang trekking. Every trekking trail is a high pass trekking trail in the Himalayas in Nepal. If you have it on your own, then bring it with you. If not, let us know when you arrive in Nepal.

But, this equipment is a rant; you need to cover some. If you feel comfortable, you can visit every trekking shop in Thamel, Kathmandu. You can get trekking shops in every corner of Kathmandu. Anyway, these are the essential things needed for trekking. Have a look at the given link for more details.

Sleeping Equipment For Hiking

  • Tent (necessary for treks with camping) but not essential for Tea House trekking
  • Sleeping bag (–15° bag will suffice on most tours)*
  • Sleeping Pad
  • Silk Liner
    *Many nights at lower elevations will be hot, but a cold-weather bag is unavoidable because there will likely be a few freezing nights at high elevations. At low elevations, you can only sleep with the silk liner, and using it later extends the life of your bag (oil from the skin is terrible for expensive down).

 Things Needed For Trekking in the Nepal Himalayas.

  • 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 thicknesses)
  • Lightweight trekking pants
  • Trekking shorts
  • T-Shirts (lightweight wool is excellent)
  • Underwear
    *You will be hiking through a wide range of terrain, from mud in warm to snow in cold weather. The trail will be rocky throughout. The safest bet for Nepal trekking footwear is full backpacking boots, which provide proper 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.

Essential Things Needed For Trekking

  • Long underwear/Wool thermals
  • Sweater

  • Waterproof jacket and pants
  • Heavyweight pants for high elevations (also suitable for camp)
  • Heavy down jacket (can be rented in Kathmandu)
  • Winter hat
  • Winter gloves

 Accessories In Things Needed For Trekking 

  • Water purification (pump, tablets, or Steri Pen; bring from home)
  • Water bottles (at least 3 liters total capacity)
  • Baseball cap (the sun is intense at all elevations)
  • Hiking poles (lessen the impact on your joints)
  • Sunglasses (essential when you cross the 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)

  • Biodegradable bar soap
  • Face/body wipes
  • Biodegradable washing liquid
  • Throat lozenges, lip balm
  • Medications (Ibuprofen, others if necessary)

 Extra Things Needed For Trekking

  • Duct tape (fixes just about everything, at least temporarily. To avoid carrying an entire roll, wrap the desired amount around a pencil)
