Nepal Kit List
Please remember that kit list are GUIDES! This is just to give you an idea of the gear I used. This list is for TEA HOUSE TREKKING where you can stay and eat at guesthouses along the way. If you are planning a remote trekking adventure that does not have guesthouses than you will need more gear.
OR 10L waterproof stuff sack for sleeping bag and liner
Flip flops or sandals, keep them light and simple
MEC Uplink Hoodie, insulated jacket
OR Foray Jacket, waterproof
Wicking T-shirt or any shirt that dries quickly
Comfortable socks, two pair
Patagonia Baggies shorts, nylon which is super durable and quick drying...but smelly
Headlamp, did not use mine often, but it is nice to have
Aquatabs, estimate daily water usage and multiply by the number of expected trekking days. Example: 5L of water per day multiplied by 20 days of trekking equals 100L of water that needs to be treated which equals 100 tabs. You can get Aquatabs in Kathmandu if you need more. This is way cheaper than buying bottle water.
Guide Book, which can be bought then sold in Kathmandu
Some final items that most people should already have: Toothbrush, tooth paste, deodorant (optional), floss, nail clippers, sunscreen, toilet paper, soap, toiletry bag or a big ziplock bag, lip balm, earplugs, hat, gloves, stuff sack for clothes (pillow case will work), sunglasses, a device for playing music, headphones, camera, chargers (keep in mind most guest houses charge you to charge!), journal and pen, cards, and your passport.
That's it. Keep it simple and light. Have a bit of extra room for snacks as well . You do not need to carry much food as you can get all your meals at guesthouses along the way. You can also buy ALL the gear you need in Kathmandu, which is nice in case you forget something.
