Before you pile up your clothes, be aware of the climate of Nepal. Instead of bringing in substantial number, pick wisely. Fast drying fabric and good breath ability clothes which do not wrinkle / wring out but are easier to wash/ pack should be selected. If you are trekking in higher attitude, pack warm jackets and trousers. Most importantly bring a pair of modest clothes like full-length jeans and t-shirt, strappy tank tops and sheer material made clothes because of cultural difference in Nepal. You can shop the clothes in Nepal as well, and believe they are far cheaper, but you can never trust the quality. Oh, don’t forget to bring a waterproof jacket or a raincoat.
