complete list, Nepal: 30 reviews and 22 photos
Luggage and bags: Don't forget a good, solid....weather-proof backpack! You will live out of your backpack the entire time! (Can you guess which one of the backpacks in this pic belongs to the Geisha Princess? I TRIED to pack light.....really I did!)
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Contrary to popular belief, you really don't need a thick down winter coat with you in the Himalayas....in December. I found that LAYERING your clothes was the key factor. While you're trekking, you can sweat so much....but when you stop and rest a bit, you can freeze your arse off! It was wise to wear one of those "Dry fit" shirts underneath your thermals. That way, if you work off a sweat during those hikes up the mountains.....it doesn't catch on to you and freeze you later on.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Bring a nice, warm SLEEPING BAG! Even if you're not camping outside, but staying in the Guest houses, a lot of these places don't offer sheets and blankets.
My goose down North Face sleeping bag saved me during those cold, cold nights in the mountains.
A FLASHLIGHT is a MUST HAVE as well. When you gotta go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.....you really need to see where you "plant your feet" around that hole in the ground!
