Aren’t You Overpacking!

  1. Journal or the book: You might think this is a great time to read but mostly it is not practical. In case you have to do it, better download it to your phone.
  2. Drone: It is amazing to capture the stunning views using drones but most parts of Nepal are restricted for the drone. It might be only the extra weight for you.
  3. Laptop: Most things you can do on your phone. It does not only make extra weight but also adds the trouble to protect it in the bag. It might get broken unless it is put in the bag safely.
  4. Snacks: The snacks at the teahouse and on the trail might be more delicious.

Finally, make the decisions smartly about what to take and what not so that you will have a lifelong thrilling experience of the Himalayan trek.
