“There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing.” Alfred Wainwright
Climbing a mountain in the Himalaya of Nepal is always a remarkable experience. Either it is a Trek to one of the base camps, or climbing a 6000 m or a 7000 m or the highest peaks in the Himalaya, one thing that stands intact is the preparations, clothing, gears and equipments that you take for your Trip.
The choice of gears, equipments, and clothing totally depends upon your goals but if you want to climb a Trekking Peak after your trek to base camp then these personal climbing gears will be required. Well the purpose of these gears and equipments are similar in big mountains as well.
