Everset base camp trek packing lists are the gear/equipment that is required for the successful Everest base camp trek. Choosing and selections of the best gears that suits you most are the really challenging task before you go to Nepal for your Everest base camp trek. We have got many questions from our clients about what is the best packing/gear list for the Everest base camp trek. That is the reason we are giving comprehensive information to the trekkers: what is the Everest base camp trek packing list?

Why is the Everest base camp trek packing list important?

The good gear list is very essential for all of the trekkers for their successful trek. The packing list you choose is very important for the trek. If you choose the good list then you will be definitely comfortable while doing the trek. In contrast, if you choose the inferior list then you may face difficulty during the trek. For example, if you choose a trekking boot that you have not used before and use just at the trek and you find it very unpleasant then it might hurt you during the entire trek that is the reason you have to be very careful while selecting the Everest base camp trek packing list.

Can I Buy the trek gear during the Everest base camp trek?

For your information there is some trek shop in Lukla and Namche where you can buy the insufficient gears for your trekking. For your information, we can not give any guarantee that you will get quality products there. All you find are original copies, that is the reason you have to be very careful while purchasing the gear when you buy the trek gear list on the trek trails. You can find here such as a trek trouser, socks, trek boots and other items for the body.

Are there good gear stores in Kathmandu?

Some of the trekkers also wonder before they start planning their trek and regarding the packing, they ask that are there good stores to buy the gears in Kathmandu? Yes, there are good trekking gear stores in Kathmandu. Some of the good brands like Adidas, North Face, Patagonia, Mountain Hardware and other brands items are available to buy in the Thamel but you should know that there is a not a price difference in your country and here in Nepal as well. There are some local brands which are also good to buy. Sonam is the Nepal best brand for mountain outdoor along with other items.

Chances of getting the Fake items in Kathmandu

There are fake and the original items you can buy in Kathmandu depends on your budget. If you want to get the cheaper one then you may get the Chinese items copied from the original brand like north face and other popular brands. If you pay the high price then you may get the original one.


Trekkers start the Everest base camp trek from the Elevation of 2800 Meter and reach up to the 5600 Meters. This is a big gap where you have to trek. That is the reason you need to have different types of clothes for the trek. Trekkers must have different clothes as they go higher for example near Lukla and around you can walk with the Scorts and T-Shirts where near Dingboche and Lobuche you can not do like that. You need to have a variety of clothes for the trek, resting, sleeping. That is the reason we have given here a complete Everet base camp trek packing list.
