WHAT TO PACK FOR TREKKING IN NEPAL
In this guide we share a comprehensive list of what to pack for trekking in Nepal, based on personal experience from 7+ Nepal trekking routes over four visits to the country. We cover what items should be on your Nepal packing list, and outline why we recommend them. We also include advice on equipment and material choices, and recommendations for specific gear based on our own extensive use. Additionally, you’ll find practical gear-related tips throughout the guide, information about buying or renting trekking gear in Nepal, and a downloadable Nepal Trekking Checklist which you can print off or fill in digitally.
You can jump to each section using the heading links below, or expand the boxes for a quick checklist and links to individual items.
Note that this Nepal packing list is aimed at those doing a ‘teahouse trek’, staying in guesthouses every night, although the information is still largely relevant for those embarking on a camping expedition.
