Guideline in selecting some of the trek gears 

WALKING BOOTS

Suitable boots are made of leather or leather/Cordura, depending on the length and difficulty of your trek, and should have ankle support and a durable sole, preferably Vibram for better grip in muddy or icy/snowy conditions. Boots should be generous fitting with ample room for toes, noting that thicker weight socks are also worn in the cold and that feet can swell a little when you have been trekking in the heat, and also when trekking at altitude in Nepal Himalaya.

LIGHTWEIGHT PANTS 

They should be loose-fitting and quick-drying if possible for instance polyamide or microfiber. Note that cotton often takes a long time to dry in the mountains. Jeans are not so suitable for trekking.

WARM TROUSERS 

Necessary for camp wear and on cold days trekking. Thick fleece (200 or 300wt) or wool is recommended or fleecy tracksuit pants, but these are not effective when wet.

WATER BOTTLE 

At least 1 liter, we strongly recommend two 1-liter bottles as the minimum, to ensure maximum hydration. They should be of good quality to withstand being filled daily with boiling water and will always remaining watertight.

DAY PACK 

Minimum of 35 -45-liter capacity, with a comfortable harness so that a majority of the weight rests on your hips rather than shoulders. A piece of more durable fabric will be more waterproof.
