Dress in layers.
The first few days of the walk may be warm enough to hike in shorts and light shirts, but the mornings and evenings are cooler. Dress in two to three layers so that your body can easily control and alter the temperature. Choose clothing that you can simply zip on and off as the weather changes.
Purchase numerous trekking equipment in Kathmandu

Make sure your daypack contains all hiking basics, such as water and purification tablets, sunscreen, a replacement jacket, a camera, and batteries. When you reach the next stop, you’ll be able to access the rest of your belongings.
