Generally, the nature of clothing that we recommend for the trip in Nepal or any Himalayan countries is layering, for unpredictable nature of weather in the region, so that you can adapt to changing weather conditions. As the day progresses and gets warmer, you can take layers off and put them in your day pack. And that the clothes you bring wash well in cold water and dry quickly. You need to bring loose, comfortable clothes and comfortable walking shoes. Since toilet facilities are not always available on the way, women may prefer skirts to pants. They are easier for squatting
- Shorts that are very short are not always appropriate in Asian countries for men or women. Try wearing light-weight, loose fitting travel trousers.
- Include a pair good comfortable walking shoes or boots. We recommend bringing well broken walking boots with ankle support if your trip includes walking. Bring day-pack (in which you carry your own camera, extra clothes, tissues, rain gear and other personal things that you will need during the day),
Clothing depends on place and time. Medium-weight and easy to wash cottons can be a good choice year-round in the Kathmandu valley. It is recommended that between October to February, woolen sweaters, jackets or similar other warm outfits are necessary. From March through May, light clothing such as short and long-sleeved shorts will do perfectly fine at Kathmandu, Pokhara and most other towns. For mornings and evenings, a jacket or heavy woolen sweater (you can find beautiful ones in reasonable price in Kathmandu) will be essential. For months from June to August, it is recommended that you bring an umbrella or raincoat and a pair of sandals with you as these months are the rainy months of Nepal. Expect lot of walking even if you don’t plan to trek. So it’s recommended that you bring comfortable footwear: sneakers and sandals are the best
If you intend to go for trekking, a pair of hiking boots will be great. Bring plenty of woolen socks too. Specialized trekking gear is easily available and can be rented in fairly inexpensive charge in Kathmandu and Pokhara
