Are you wondering about essential equipment for your trekking journey? We are here to offer our checklist for your references. You may make amendments to them as per your need and convenience. The necessary equipment can be easily purchased in the shops in Kathmandu. So, you need not worry if you couldn’t get any of the listed items in your hometown. 

You also need not worry about the quality of gears available in Kathmandu. The majority of them are manufactured locally and some are imported from China. So, they are of high quality. Light luggage is preferred for safe and convenient travel. A porter is available for two people. He will carry up to a maximum of 25 kg. Therefore, you need to keep this in mind before you pack your bags.
