Equipment Check List for Nepal

Please use this list a guideline and adjustments to the list can be done according to your needs, interests, duration of your trip, the season of your trip, etc. You can find a variety of these gears to hire or buy in Kathmandu. Majority of the gears which are for sale in Kathmandu are locally manufactured (hence a lot cheaper) and some gears found here are imported from China and are obviously of better quality. You can find very high quality branded gears too in some famous stores here. It is good to keep your luggage as light as possible.
