Packing List

Packing List

While you are in trekking then, you must bring Gears List for Trekking in Nepal and you are responsible for bringing your own personal gear and equipment.  If your bags and luggage are heavy then you can hire a Porter. It is advised to keep your luggage as light as possible around 10 to 15 kg because your luggage will make you difficult to walk during the trek. Simply carry a day pack with water bottle, camera, sunscreen, spare jacket etc. Or you can leave your valuable items at your hotel while trekking. There are many hotels that offers locker system. Not only this, they also provide a deposit slip for the valuables kept under the hotel’s safekeeping.
