EQUIPMENT CHECKLIST

Adventure International Trekking equipment lists up to 5500m/18000ft. The following equipment list is suggested and necessary for teahouse trekking in the Himalayas. Use this list as a guideline; some of the equipment can be hired in Katmandu .  Also bare in mind trekking gear can be bought in the many adventure shops in Katmandu, the majority of gear is locally manufactured (hence a lot cheaper) although it is becoming more common for gear to be imported from China and therefore of better quality.
