If you are a camping expert then you already know that packing your stuff before you leave is one of the most important (if not THE most important) things to do. In this list, let’s try and break down the top 5 most important pieces of equipment you should carry with you during your adventurous trip.
Top 5 Things You Need When You Go Camping

Critical Stuff First

In my personal experience, I’ve been backpacking all the way from Berlin to Moscow and trust me, during those 3 months, I saw things. That’s why my personal advice would be to start by preparing all your medicines and relatives first. In case you suffer from some serious pathologies, then you should include that particular medicine in your bag since the chances that you will not be able to find it is pretty high.

Comfort While Travelling

Travelling is a magnificent experience but could be also very stressful. If you combine that to the fact that camping also includes the struggle of finding a place in which you will be able to safely sleep, then the stress level could reach a major peak. First of all, get yourself a quality backpack, that is spacious enough, strong and waterproof. Then, if you are driving, get yourself a traveling pillow, if it’s not already in your camping equipment. Last but not least, your sleeping bag must be ready for any possible extreme scenario, so buy one that has quality in its features.

The Tent

If you are camping and the tent is up to you, then these are my pieces of advice: avoid ultra big ones, as they are hard to fold and this could be time-consuming and stressful. Also, forget about the “easy to fold ones” as they are (guess what) NOT easy to fold at all. When buying a tent, be sure to grab one that has a high percentage of waterproof materials, because is a must if you are planning on camping in some extreme, cold, rainy places.

The Clothes

This to all the camping girls who are reading this article: camping is supposed to be an experience that brings you closer to nature and therefore, it has to be done limiting all the fancy stuff. For clothes, in particular, it’s important to bring comfy ones, possibly easy to wash, not heavy and most importantly, made of quality.

Shoes

This may vary based on where you are planning to go, but this general setup works: bring one pair of boots (since mud is always a problem), one pair of trainers and one pair of flip-flops. In this way, you will be sorted in any possible scenario.

Born and raised in Gorkha, Nepal, I am proud to call the Manaslu region my home! I have been in the travel business for over a decade from being assistance guide, leader, to being a manager. And finally today I am the founder of NEST Adventure. So you could say I know my way well enough in the Himalayas, especially in some of the off-the-beaten-trails in Nepal like Manaslu, Kanchenjunga and Mustang!

I am passionate about travelling and I strongly believe that seeing the world shouldn't break the bank (at least not too much!). I have backpacked to over 15 countries in Asia, Central America, USA, Canada, one-third of Europe, the Caribbean Islands, and Latin America.

I studied in the UK and moved to the United States. During that period, I had the opportunity of working with multinational companies which taught me how to deliver quality customer service in the business. As a world travelling backpacker myself, and travel expert for the Nepalese Himalayas, I started writing about my own country. Which I would love to share with you. In case you required free information about Nepal or join a group with our existing departure, (particularly If you are a solo hiker for the restricted area) please do not hesitate to visit my office in Thamel. We are located in the centre of Kathmandu called Thamel. I am happy to share a cup of Nepali tea and free information.

Our team at NEST has earned 5/5 star ratings on TripAdvisor. Don't forget to visit our customer feedback page on TripAdvisor. If you believe our expert team can be helpful in planning your next trip to Nepal, then please do not hesitate to contact me at nestadventure@gmail.com. I am also available 24x7 on WhatsApp  +977- 9851052042. If you are interested to know more about my travel journey follow me on  FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.
