Main trekking equipment

Luggage

• 1 large duffel bag: This will carry all your personal gear on the trek. It should be strong and durable.  The best size would be around 30" x 14", with a full-length zipper and handles.

• 1 small padlock: Your duffel bag should be locked.

• 1 rucksack or day pack:  This should accommodate a sweater, rain gear, water bottle, camera and accessories and any miscellaneous items you want to have during the day.  We recommend a pack with at least 1450cu. In capacity, or smaller if you are not carrying a large amount of camera equipment.

• 1 small duffel bag or suitcase: Items not needed on the trek can be left at the hotel in Kathmandu. This bag should also have a lock.  Be sure to leave room for purchases, or buy one in Kathmandu they have many good quality ones available.
