Overview

What to bring?

Tent (necessary for treks with camping)
Sleeping bag (–15° bag will suffice on most treks)*
Sleeping pad
Silk liner
*Many nights at lower elevations will be hot, but because there will likely be a few very cold nights at high elevation a cold weather bag is unavoidable. At low elevations you can sleep with the silk liner only and using it later extends the life of your bag (oil from skin is bad for expensive down).

Hiking
Backpack (size depends on whether or not you have porters)
Hiking boots* (break them in beforehand)
Camp shoes (your reward after a long day)
Wool socks (bring a few pairs of varying thickness)
Lightweight trekking pants
Trekking shorts
T-Shirts (lightweight wool is great)
Underwear
*You will be hiking through a wide range of terrain from mud in warm weather to snow in cold weather. The trail will be rocky throughout. The safest bet for Nepal trekking footwear is full backpacking boots, which provide good support and protection from the elements. If there is a high pass on your trek, you may be walking on snow and the conditions will be cold. A good compromise is to bring backpacking boots and trail shoes—you can use the trail shoes for camp and interchange the two depending on the conditions and how you feel.

Cold Weather
Long underwear/Wool thermals
Sweater
Fleece
Waterproof jacket and pants
Heavyweight pants for high elevations (also good for camp)
Heavy down jacket (can be rented in Kathmandu)
Winter hat
Winter gloves

Accessories
Water purification (pump, tablets, or SteriPen; bring from home)
Water bottles (at least 3 liters total capacity)
Baseball cap (the sun is strong at all elevations)
Hiking poles (lessen the impact on your joints)
Sunglasses (essential when you cross snow line)
Head lamp with extra batteries
Reading materials (Kindle may be best)
Journal and pens
Camera with extra batteries
Daypack (for your rain jacket, snacks, camera, etc.)
Heavy-duty duffle bag (preferred by porters)
Gators (many people wear them but they are not mandatory)

Personal Supplies
Sun screen
Hand sanitizer
Toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, floss, etc.)
Biodegradable bar soap
Face/body wipes
Biodegradable washing liquid
Throat lozenges, lip balm
Medications (Ibuprofen, others if necessary)

Extras
Duct tape (fixes just about everything, at least temporarily. To avoid carrying an entire roll wrap the desired amount around a pencil)
First aid kit (with moleskin for blisters)
Extra passport photos and photocopies of your passport
