If yes, then we – World Alpine Treks are here to help you with your luggage packing. We have made a shortlist of some trekking materials, gadgets, clothing, and equipment that you may require while on a trek in Nepal. We have enlisted items in detail. You can select the necessary items as per your judgment. The requirement of trekking equipment may vary with the type of trek you are opting for.

NOTE – You can also purchase the listed items in Kathmandu. Good quality products are available locally in the shops of Kathmandu. Some are locally manufactured while some are imported from China. If you think you mightn’t need that equipment at other times, you have the option of hiring this equipment from the shops. You can hire the products and return them after the completion of your trekking journey.
