Given this list as a guideline, most of the trekking equipment can be hired or bought in many adventure shops in Kathmandu as well. The majority of gear is locally manufactured (hence a lot cheaper) although it is becoming more common for gear to be imported from China and therefore of better quality.

The following basic equipment list helps you with your packing. Please, remember that you should always try to keep the weight of your equipments to a minimum level. Before starting the trek your packed trek bag should weigh not more than 33 pounds or 15kg.
