Packing List for Nepal

Okay so packing, my worst nightmare, the thing I hate the most and an activity that will require more mental endurance than the trek itself. I’m kidding, I’m not, I am really. But Packing, damn I hate it. I think because I’m not very good at it, I want to take everything I own, you know just in case something happens and one requires that jumper you haven’t worn for over a year or those shoes that sit under your bed for life. I should just throw it out, I know.

G Adventures kindly sent a packing list with the booking confirmation which is an excellent place to start. From this list, we eliminated a few items we knew were not needed and pulled from a few other lists we had read online. Below is the list we have decided to go with. I will link all the products on the list when I have them and know exactly what I am taking. I will also write a follow-up blog when we return, a more accurate list of what was useful to us on the trek. The list applies to both of us, we are pretty much packing the same thing, apart from my camera gear.
