What equipment do I need for trekking ?

Before moving to high altitude places, you should consider what you need to take with you. You may not even think how worst situation you might have to face during the trek. Unfortunately, weather in Himalaya can be instantly changed. Not only that, your health condition can be worse to worst. So that, you need to be prepared of necessary equipment before trekking in Himalaya.

I am making a list of equipment here for you guys, so as to prepare before starting trip to the Himalaya. The first thing that you should consider is how you can bring all these things with you. If you are able to carry these things, then it is good; otherwise, you can hire a porter which will carry your luggage.

Assuming that your trip is normal and moderate level trek, here is a list of equipment that you should not forget to bring with you.

For Head

  • Sun hat / Scarf
  • Sun glasses
  • Head Torch

For Upper Body

  • Water Proof Jacket
  • Down Jacket
  • Light Weight T-shirt

For Lower Body

  • Water Proof Pants
  • Light Weight Pants

For Hand

  • Gloves

For Feet

  • Thin Inner socks
  • Woolen socks
  • Hiking boots (preferred comfortable boots)

Other Accessories

  • Trekking and sleeping bags
  • Sunscreen
  • Towel
  • Toiletries
  • Maps
  • Scarf
  • Medical Kits

If all these equipment is already included in your trip package by your trekking company, then they will manage it. Otherwise, you should manage by yourself. But do not forget to remind them not to forget to bring even a thing.
