2 Minute Packing List for Nepal Trek | Adventureholix | S2:E1


This time our adventures take us to the Khumbu Valley in Nepal! We will be trekking the route up to Gokyo with our friend Chhepal D. Sherpa, who will also be our local guide. Anton’s family has known Chhepal for over 10 years now and he has kindly invited us to visit him in his hometown of Kunde. We look forward to spending time with Chheppal, visiting his family and submersing ourselves in the local Himalayan life.

(lodges charge high prices for using electricity and so it is advisable to have your own power source when on the move) • Multi port USB charger

(again the lodges charge for using electricity by the hour and so it is important to maximise the money you spend on charging by connecting many devices into one USB charger)

(for action shots and to stabilise footage while walking up the trails) • Hard Drive and Computer to off load footage from memory cards (not necessary if you don’t intend to take a lot of video) • Headphones for playing music and other entertainment on the plane ride and on the trails or lodge
