Do you know most of the trekking routes of Nepal begin from the subtropical region and go through the subalpine zone to approach the alpine zone above 4500 m?
As an example, the ultimate destination of most of the trails in Khumbu will be either EBC i.e trek to Everest Base Camp, Kala Pathar, or Gokyo. All these places lie at least above 5000 m from sea level. And most of the treks begin from either Lukla, Jiri, Bhandar, or Shivalaya.
What I am trying to say is that you should bring those gears that are suitable for the places.
Here I have listed some most recommended gears for trekking in Nepal.
Sun Hat or Scarf and Sunglasses
You will be walking in the day. Consequently, solar lights can be harmful to you as the temperature in the daytime might be 10 – 15 degrees Celsius in the trail areas. So, you need to bring a sun hat or scarf to save your face from the sunlight.
In addition, sunglasses are necessary to protect your eyes.
You are required to bring a head torch because if your trail crosses high passes like Renjo La, Chola, etc, then you will be heading either in the early morning. Early morning may be less visible in the mountain because of the fog. Meanwhile, you need a torchlight to see properly while walking.
Water Proof Jacket
THE NORTH FACE Men’s Resolve water proof Jacket for trekking in Nepal
In the case of rain, the waterproof jacket might be valuable. So, it is suggested to bring a piece of the water jacket.
Basically, we don’t recommend bringing a waterproof jacket in Autumn (September to November) as the season is the best trekking season in Nepal.
North face brand has really good waterproof stuff.
