1. 1 pair of running or tennis shoes to use on lighter walking days
2. 1 pair of light but sturdy hiking boots. Wear a light synthetic sock under a warm heavy sock, either wool or synthetic. Boots should be water repellent
3. 1 pair of Hiking Gaiters (Optional). These will help keep out rocks out of shoes and boots dry in case of precipitation. Optional if trekking pants are worn.
4. 4 pair of heavyweight wool or synthetic socks. (Wool is warmer.) These should be worn over the liner socks.
5. 4 pair of liner socks - smooth thin wool, nylon to be worn next to the skin.
1. Lightweight Long Underwear. 2 pair, tops & bottoms, other synthetic or wool. No cotton.
2. Lightweight is preferable as it is more versatile (worn single in warmer conditions and double layer for colder). Zip-t-neck tops allow more ventilation options. One set of white for intense sunny days and one pair of dark for faster drying gives the most versatility.
3. Light trekking pants
5. Bandana. Bring 2 or more bandanas for facemasks and other tasks.
6. Synthetic/soft shell jacket. A full-zip version is easier to put on and has better ventilation than a pullover.
7. Insulated synthetic pants with optional full separating side zippers. This is very important for ventilation. Full side zips also allow pants to be taken off without having to remove boots.
8. Insulated down jacket.
9. Hard shell jacket w/ hood. We recommend a waterproof breathable shell material with full front zipper, this outer layer protects against wind and rain.
10. Hard shell pants. Waterproof, breathable. Any side zipper length is fine as long as you can get them over your boots.
11. Fleece/soft shell gloves. 1 pair. A heavier fleece will do a better job of keeping hands.
12. Sun hat. The sun can be intense at high altitude. A hat with a good visor provides protection for the nose and eyes. Baseball hats work well.
13. 1 light-weight wool/synthetic ski hat.
14. Neck Gaiter or Buff. Buff is preferred for covering the face and preventing sickness.
15. Sleeping bag. High quality with hood to at least -10F, -20F (you can rent in Kathmandu)
16. Backpack. A daypack big enough to carry water bottles, camera and extra clothing.
17. Large duffle bag with travel locks. Second small duffel can be nice for storing things during the trek.

3. Camera with spare batteries, and film or memory cards

8. 1-3 pair of hand/foot warmers - recommended if you easily get cold hands and feet. (optional)
9. Lip screen. SPF 30 or better, at least 2 sticks. Not older than 6 months.
10. Plastic bags (5). For lining stuff sacks & pack to keep gear dry. Trash compactor bags work best.

12. Travel wallet: a secure travel wallet is a must for carrying your important documents including passport, extra photos, duffel inventory list, and money.
