Trekking to Everest Basecamp can't be attempted without the proper items and equipment. If you are unsure about any of these items, click the link to see a photograph.
Walking boots x 1: Ankle supported walking boots are ideal. Itís a good idea to have already worn in your walking boots to minimise the possibility of developing blisters during the expedition/p>
Windproof Jacket x 1
Gloves x 2: You will require a thick pair of gloves for the latter days of the expedition when the temperature drops. A thin pair of gloves can come in handy for the first few days of the trip Ė you may want to wear them around camp if you encounter cold temperatures at night.
Waterproofs x 1 including a waterproof/wind proof jacket
3 - 4 seasons sleeping bag
Water bottles x 2: platypus drinking bag (2 litre min) is ideal in providing an easily accessible constant stream of water whilst trekking. Donít worry if you donít have one though - regular water bottles are fine
Water purification tablets/iodine are essential to ensure you have safe drinking water
Sun screen: We recommend a high factor protection, due to intensity of the sun at altitude. Itís not uncommon to get sunburn in cool conditions, without even realising you are exposed to intense rays.
Torch x 1: A head torch is the most suitable
T-shirts x 3: Best to have breathable materials, which are not too tight on the skin
Sun Hat/cap combined with a hood. It is essential to keep your head warm and protected from the wind during the trek
Down Jacket: Down Jackets can be considered a luxury trekking jacket, which in many months of the year are unnecessary, but in the colder months can be very useful. Note: Down Jackets are expensive, and if you do not expect to use it again in the future then a wind proof jacket with a fleece and T-shirt should serve you just fine.
Fleece x 1
Trekking poles: Useful on the way down to reduce the strain on your knees. Poles can be purchased cheaply in Nepal.
Thick walking socks x 3: Many trekkers wear a thin pair of socks under their thick socks to reduce friction.
Sunglasses: Ideally wrap-around glasses which minimise the gaps in-between your glasses and your skin.
