Equipment Checklist - Gear And Accessories

When doing the trekking adventure in the Himalayan region of the country, you need to pack the right layers and necessary equipment to make the journey enjoyable. During your trip, you will pass through different climatic zones and you will need to maneuver yourself on the rugged trails of the isolated region.

So, packing the right gear and clothes can help you to make the experience both comfortable and delightful. However, you need to be creative while packing your luggage for the trip. Your porter will carry only about 15kg of your luggage during your Himalayan adventure, and if you pack excessively, you will have to carry the luggage that crosses the weight limit by yourself.

Packing efficiently without missing out on the essentials is the balance you should look for during your trip. Here are some of our recommended pack lists that you can cross-reference with your checklist.
