Mountaineering requires a lot of gear. Choosing the right one depends on what kind and how long the trip will be. If you plan to hike a small mountain with no-technical climbing, you need only a few primary gears, such as boots, a backpack, and a rain jacket. However, the gear list can be extended if you are on a multi-day winter mountaineering.
If you forget something—don’t worry! You can buy anything on this list in Kathmandu. Just make sure you save some time before your trek to go shopping. Kathmandu has brand-name and knock-off shops that cater to the thousands of travellers coming to Nepal each year who lack all the necessary equipment.
