Accessories Checklist

If you have already booked a trekking package to the mountains of Nepal and are unsure about the essential equipment you'll need for your trek, don't worry! We have put together a comprehensive checklist for you to reference. You can make necessary adjustments to our checklist based on your personal needs and preferences. If you are unable to find some of the listed items in your hometown or are pressed for time before your flight to Kathmandu, don't panic! Most of the necessary equipment can be easily purchased in Kathmandu, as the city has plenty of shops catering to trekkers.

It's important to keep your luggage as light as possible for convenient travel, as a porter is available for two people carrying up to 25 kg maximum. So, keep this in mind when packing your bags!

Here's the checklist of equipment you'll need for your trek:
