What to bring?
Tent (necessary for treks with camping)
Sleeping bag (–15° bag will suffice on most treks)*
*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).
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
T-Shirts (lightweight wool is great)
*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.
Long underwear/Wool thermals
Waterproof jacket and pants
Heavyweight pants for high elevations (also good for camp)
Heavy down jacket (can be rented in Kathmandu)
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)
Toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, floss, etc.)
Biodegradable bar soap
Biodegradable washing liquid
Throat lozenges, lip balm
Medications (Ibuprofen, others if necessary)
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

What Client Say About Us
Nous sommes finalement partis en octobre le trek etait tres bien preparé et l'equipe à la faois amicale serviable et efficace permettant de nous sentir en toute securité.
We have just finished a 17 days trek in the Annapurnas and Mustang regions. The trek was demanding at times but from the very beginning we encountered great support and encouragement from Jomson Treks and Expedition who provided the most efficient service.
The city has a humid subtropical climate; however, the elevation keeps temperatures moderate. Temperatures in summer average between 25 and 35 °C; in winter around −2 to 15 °C.
If you are looking for ways to conquer your fear or just want to do something crazy for your adrenaline kicks in, the high lands of our country can help you achieve this goal.
So we decided to continue with them and in August 2010 we have organized the Upper Mustang Trek with the same agency. Guru is the best trekking guide and he has his own trekking company in Pokhara ( Jomsom Treks & Expedition p.ltd)
nous sommes très satisfait de la prestation, car shiva a été un très bon guide, flexible et attentif, avec de bonnes adresses locales pour dejeuner et pour dormir. notre guide Harka était d un dévouement sans faille, et connaissait également très bien la région
Our group of six persons had a wonderful trip to Annapurna Base Camp through the help and expertise of Guru and his team of guides and porters, particularly Chandra, Anil and Samser. Their office in Pokhara is very conveniently situated and accessible by internet
My girlfriend and I just came back from the Ghorepani Trek (Poon Hill) that we did in 4 days (it can be difficult for people who are not in good shape since two of these days are 15 KM/7.5 hours walk per day without speaking of the ascent).
A great experience from the beginning! We looked for some thing off the beaten path and the Model Trek was it. We saw no fellow tourists during our camping portion of the trip ! Just locals Our guide, cook and porters were very good and friendly.
It was a truly great experience. 14 days of pure joy despite some cloudy days (monsoon…). The views from the Thorung La pass (5416m) were just incredible, and some of the villages on the route were magnificent (most notably Upper Pisang and Kagbeni)
