Trekking in Nepal doesn't mean only enjoying the scenic and magnificent views of the mountain range, there is always more to appreciate. As you walk along the trek, you will come across different landscapes, and witness local customs of the mountain people. Whether it's soothing and beautiful waterfalls, charming villages dotted with houses, temples and monasteries, or the richness of the wildlife and its surroundings, you are sure to enjoy the local culture.
There are few things that trekkers can equip themselves with to be prepared for the challenge ahead. In the clothing and gears department, smart choices need to be made to have a comfortable and great experience, so here's what you will need for trekking in Nepal.
Trekking Boots -
If don't have proper trekking shoes, your experience of trekking in Nepal, in short - will be HELL! So do get your hands on a really good pair of trekking boots.
Your trekking shoes should be waterproof and should have ankle support with a good grip for difficult treks, including trekking on snow, over scree and rocks. But for fairly easier treks like the Helambu Circuit Trek which has less harsh terrain, lightweight running shoes are excellent.
T-shirts and Shirts -
Versatile layering is the answer for trekking in Nepal. You'll be wearing multiple but light layers of clothing as it'll help you move around comfortably, and is easier to put on or take off as per your need on the trek.
Trekkers usually wear half-sleeved shirts for most of the time at the start of the Nepal trek. But it's better to get full-sleeved ones with a collar to avoid sunburn.
Down Jacket or Fibre-Filled Jacket -
Weather is an unpredictable thing while trekking. It can get icy cold, windy, sunny and hot and can drizzle lightly or rain heavily in a single trek. The windproof and waterproof jackets are a must to bear these elements while on a trek in Nepal.
Hats and Gloves -
Hats are important to keep you warm in cold weather and can also protect you from sunburns. For your Nepal trekking adventure, get wide hats/sun-hats that will protect your ears and neck from the sun and the cold. You can get further protection with a scarf too. Also, hats can be switched with woolen beanies for cold nights.
