Kandoo's recommended kit for trekking in Nepal

The defining characteristic of weather in the Himalaya is the combination of extreme heat and extreme cold in a single day. The best way to cope with these changes is to have lots of relatively thin layers that can be combined or reduced as the temperature goes up and down. 

You can download a full infographic of our kit list with links to the specific items of kit we recommend below. Also for when you are packing there is a printable checklist of all the items you need.  Please note that airline baggage weight restrictions for domestic flights in Nepal are 10kg for your main equipment bag and 5kg for your hand luggage. 

For peak climbs we will increase the weight allowance of your main equipment bag to 15kg. However, if the airline is unable to take the excess baggage on the same flight, we will need to re-pack your climbing kit separately so that it can be sent on a later flight. A porter will then catch up with you on the trek to deliver it.

If there are any items of kit you would prefer to hire please see rental gear.
