“End of Service “

two-people-emoticon_318-9106 Trekking gears
The clothing you bring will need to allow for both the warmth of the days and the chill of the nights. While trekking during the day at lower altitudes, lightweight trekking trousers and T-shirts are recommended. It’s always a good idea to carry a waterproof jacket and some warmer clothing with you though as mountain weather is notoriously unpredictable. For the cold nights, thermal underwear, a warm fleece jacket and even a down jacket will help to keep you warm.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Sleeping bag
Down-filled bags are better. Beg, borrow or steal a good one (ie 4-5 season) because high altitude nights will be cool. Good down is fluffy, light and thick. A muff (an extra section around the neck) makes a big difference to the overall warmth of a bag. Reasonable sleeping bags are cheaply available for rent in Kathmandu. Alternatively add a fleece sleeping bag liner to add warmth to a 3-4 season bag.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Kitbag (duffel bag / duffle bag)
For all the treks your gear that is carried by the porters or yaks is best packed in a strong kitbag. A simple design without wheels and without foldable handles is best. You can buy in Kathmandu, although they are not as tough as say the North Face Base Camp Duffel.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Boots
For a happy trek you need comfortable feet. Good boots have: good ankle support, plenty of toe room for long descents, a stiff sole to lessen twisting torsion, and are light because with every step you lift your boot up. Look at the inner lining – leather is good and Cambrelle is even better, a material that eats smelly feet bacteria. Good lightweight trekking boots or light all leather boots are perfect. Boots must be lightly worn in before trekking and this should include some steep hills to show up trouble spots. The longer the trek, the better the boots you need.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Socks
In the low country your feet will be warm or even hot while walking so quality cotton mix sports socks are best. Three to four pairs are enough. Thick trekking socks are better for higher up and cool evenings, four pairs. Mostly modern trekking boots fit snugly so wearing two pairs of socks at the same time is impractical.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Sleeping bag liner
Cotton, silk or fleece. Saves washing your sleeping bag and adds warmth. Cotton or silk ones can be made in Kathmandu but are more easily bought from home. Fleece ones are readily available in Kathmandu and cost around $10 per day

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Daypack
This should be comfortable and a good waist band that transfers some of the weight to the hips is most important. It needs to be big enough to take a jacket, fleece, water, camera and odds and ends.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Camp shoes/sandals/flip-flops
A luxury for your feet at the end of the day. Sandals or running shoes. Flip-flops, available for cheap in Kathmandu, are a necessity for showers during the trek.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Fleece jacket/vest
Most trekkers consider this essential, but alternatives are a thick thermal top or a light down jacket. In Kathmandu you can get almost any sort of fleece you need.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Down jacket/vest
Almost essential for the cool evenings. If you don’t already have a jacket, they are easily rented in Kathmandu for around $1 a day. A down jacket is the best option, although a vest can also be brought along.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Wind/rain jacket
Waterproof and breathable. Plastic ponchos or non-breathable raincoats are not suitable. Gore-tex (or similar) jackets are recommended for treks over passes or climbing trips. Lighter jackets should be a second jacket, easy to throw in the daypack for warmer days.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Thermal shirts/underwear
Good thermals, both tops and bottoms, are one of the secrets to cold weather trekking comfort. Expedition-weight thermals are the most versatile and can be worn as your high altitude trekking top or under pants on extremely cold days. Zip-up tops are great for changeable weather.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Nightwear thermals
Silk-weight is lightest and warm, mid-weight is perfect. Great for warm nights in the sleeping bag!
Fleece/sweatpants
Great for the chilly evenings, thicker is better (except for when the stoves in the teahouses really heat up!). Readily available in Kathmandu.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Day-wear shirt
T-shirts are popular but a cotton shirt or mixed yarn travel shirt is more versatile. The collar protects the back of your neck and the sleeves can be rolled up or down. Take two or three so you can swap damp for dry.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Wind pants
If your trekking pants are reasonably windproof then special wind pants are not needed. If you do bring a pair, it is not necessary to have Gore-tex. Similar, non-waterproof is quite OK.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Trekking pants
You will live in these. Light material, loose and dark-coloured is best. You can survive with only one pair, although two is better.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Underwear
4 to 7 pairs.
Warm hat/balaclava
Nice for the evenings, hats essential for cold trekking days. Joel brings at least 5 wool hats, you might get away with fewer!

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Neck gaiter
For winter trekking they are really the best for staying warm!
Trekking poles
Definitely useful, especially on steep, rough terrain, but if you are not used to using them you can survive without.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Sunglasses
Suitable for snow, its bright up there, but specialised glacier glasses with side pieces are not needed. Contact lens wearers report very few problems except cleaning them in the conditions. Ski goggles are unnecessary.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Mittens/gloves
A good pair of wind-proof gloves is essential. Available in Kathmandu for cheap if you don’t have a pair.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Water bottle
Should be one liter or more in capacity, take boiling water and be leak-proof. Nalgene or a similar brand, or European fuel bottles, are best. You need AT LEAST 2 water bottles, or at least 1 water bottle IN ADDITION to a Camelback or hydration system. Naglene’s are great, available in Kathmandu, real or fake.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Pee bottle
Very useful on cold nights! Can buy a cheap one in Kathmandu.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Torch / Flashlight
Petzl Tikka’s and other similar torches with LED bulbs rule. They are adequate for climbing although many people prefer a second torch. Most of the teahouses still don’t have lights in the rooms, so headlamps are ideal for reading in bed. Also essential for trips to the toilet at night!

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Toiletries and odds & ends
Essentials for the month only, and available en route in Namche and most lodges. There are a surprising number of showers or buckets of hot water available. The smallest tube of toothpaste is perfect for a month. We provide toilet paper for expeditions, you bring or buy along the way for tea-house treks. Deodorant can spare you grief with your room mate/tent partner…

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Towel
Bring only a small one trekking, or a camp towel. In Kathmandu the hotel supplies towels.
Sunscreen and lip balm with sunscreen
The sun is strong at altitude, especially after snow. Bring at least sunscreen and lip balm with SPF 15, and better still SPF 30+.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Moisturiser
A small tube for sensitive or well cared for skins. The air is dry and the sun harsh.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Sun hat
A baseball cap is ideal. Bring 5, if you like to change colors every day like Joel does. A wide-brim sun hat is also good.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106First aid kit
We carry one with aspirin, paracetamol, ibuprofin, decongestants, lozenges, various antibiotics for Nepalese varieties of diarrhoea and chests infections, Diamox (an acclimatizing aid drug), antiseptic, antihistamine cream, rehydration, bandages and band-aids, tough blister tape (but not moleskin).
You should bring any personal medicines that you need.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Water purification
A bottle of iodine tablets such as Potable Aqua, Polar Pur or Couglans. We mostly use to water from the lodges but occasionally take water from the streams. The use of mineral water is discouraged from an environmental point of view, but is available everywhere.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Camera and video camera
See the separate discussion.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Money-pouch/belt/inside pocket
Most people find wearing one while trekking is a hassle and keep it buried in their kitbag or daypack. The Kathmandu hotel has safety deposit boxes.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Snow gaiters
Not needed but if you have them, bring them.

two-people-emoticon_318-9106Crampons and ice axe
You can hire
