Duffle bags for trekking

Duffle Bags & Daily trek routine:
Before breakfast, you should pack up your gear, bearing in mind that your sleeping bag will also have to fit into the duffel bag. Roll up your Jackets and sleeping bag, put it in a stuff sack.Your duffel bag will be taken by your Sherpa which provide by Adventure International Trekkingand tied up with other gear into a load, which heads off early with the porters. This will be available to you at the next camp. We usually hit the trail by 7.30 AM and stop for lunch around 12 O'clock. Lunch is usually about one and half-hours. This allows sufficient time to serve meals to the group members.

Every morning porters are leaving earlier than trekking members and they will be waited for you at the teahouse each day. So bring whatever you may need in your day pack during the day but keep it simple. Weights feel magnified at altitude and you will only make the mistake of carrying too much once.

 

 

Nepal Trip for recommended Equipment/Packing List

Certain basic equipment is essential for all trekking, climbing, expedition routes. Depending on the area, season, region, and altitude, it is most important to have the right equipment with you or else you may run the risk of discomfort or may even have to shorten your trip. Neither we nor you want this to happen!

So we have compiled a recommended comprehensive list of necessities that will prepare you for an enjoyable trip. The following gives you a general idea of what to bring including clothing, equipment & gear.  

Trekking

Backpack/duffel bag - This is to carry gears/ trekking equipment, cloths etc. Duffel bag is provided by Adventure International Trekking (maximum weight limit 12-17 kilogram per person).

Daypack- You will require a small day pack which should be sufficient to carry your important personal stuff and small equipment for the day, water, fleece jacket, gloves, hat, First Aid kit etc. Porter would be able to carry your stuff of around 12-17 kilograms.

Shoes - a good pair of trekking shoes / lightweight boots. Waterproof footwear is preferable as you may be walking through some streams. It is horrible to walk in soaked shoes in the cold for hours? It is worst when you have to put on wet shoes in the morning! It is better if you worn in for some time before starting the trek.

A pair of spare laces, Flip flops or sandals for wear around your lodge

Socks (3-4 pairs) Bring a bottle of body/foot powder and squeeze a generous amount into your socks before you wear them to keep dry and relaxing.

Fleece Jacket: although during the day temperatures will (hopefully) be very pleasant the mornings and evenings can be chilly.

Down Jacket / Sleeping bag {we do provide this on request}

A sweater or sweat-shirt, Waterproof / windproof jacket

Long johns or thermal underwear, Underwear

T shirts: combination of half and long sleeves.

Trousers: Lightweight trousers for lower altitudes, a heavier pair for higher altitudes.

Trousers with cargo pockets at the sides and extra pockets are an advantage

 Waterproof over trousers

Gloves - waterproof, thermal (thickness depending on your trek)

Warm hat, and sun hat / cap

Lip Balm

Sunglasses- UV resistant, better if covered at the sides (extension from the rims of the specs to the face), if possible, get a case that you can easily hang on your backpack or body.

Head-torch - LED is longer lasting and whiter, and spare batteries. Electricity is erratic in Nepal and you may have to use a torch when you're at the tea houses - lighting is not always guaranteed in bedrooms. Sometime even in alleys of Thamel/Kathmandu.

Sunscreen - factor 50

Water Bottle - mineral water can be bought along the trails but ideally to cut down plastic waste get a 1 liter water bottle: boiled water (paid) can be topped up at tea houses. Or you can use purifier.

Basic First Aid kit - plasters, wound dressings, diarrhea pills ('Imodium', 'Arête' or similar) if you can persuade your doctor to prescribe a course of Cyproxin do so - it's a broad-spectrum antibiotic, particularly effective for stomach upsets that have not succumbed to other remedies, painkillers, crepe bandage (for sprains and strains), 'Deep Heat' or similar muscle-relaxant cream, scissors, tweezers, safety pins, water purification pills

A small plastic bottle of antiseptic hand-wash: careful personal hygiene will avoid most stomach disorders.

Sewing kit - fixes your clothes but will be invaluable if your haversack or daypack tears.

Toiletries - usual, and wet-wipes, Toilet paper can be bought at most of the tea houses.

Towel - medium size

Things that you might want to consider

Walking poles - helps with long climbs and descents, a good tool if you meet a wild or crazed animal too close!

 Must-have if your trousers don't have pockets

Scarf - good to have when the weather is cool, windy but too hot for a fleece jacket

This list is only a guide. While you are not required to bring everything on this list, there are numerous options, brands, and versions of each piece of equipment. We suggest you use your experience and the recommended items above to find the best gear for you. Most of the above equipment & gear are available for sale or rent (i.e. sleeping bag, down-jacket).at shops around Kathmandu. However, most trekking equipment in Nepal is either used equipment that was sold by other trekkers or mountaineering expeditions or locally made reproductions of internationally known brands. The local rucksacks, duffel bags and rain ponchos are inexpensive and will usually stand up to the rigors of a trek or two. Don't be fooled into thinking that you are getting a genuine brand name item for top quality.

 

*Please Note*

Tight fitting, figure-hugging clothing, such as those made with Lycra can often be offensive to locals, especially on women. If you find these items comfortable as a base layer please pack something to wear over the top of them. Too much exposure can draw the wrong kind of attention especially from males who may get the wrong idea or impression.

 

With some advance preparation and a list of what to bring, you'll be on your way

to having a safe and enjoyable trip!
