Great rucksack, comfortable and robust but a little heavy. A 75L would have been sufficient too.
Essential to allow you to put your rucksack into your tent without it being wet Orange - could be used to highlight location in event of an emergency. Also double up as a bivvy 4 multiple dry bags for clothes and equipment Great battery life and good quality of photos 8 Spare SD cards, USB stick, SD fitting USB for transferring photos onto computer Essential, but ensure you package to prevent breaking it Allowed me to fasten to rucksack waist band Take spare cable that goes from the solar to the battery. Plus all cables for iPOD, phone, kindle, Yellowbrick. Only 5.4v max charge so cannot charge large camera batteries.
Used to house AA and AAA batteries whilst charging them through the Power Monkey Extreme 16 Rechargeable 4 x AA and 6 x AAA batteries Powered through USB lead therefore solar set could charge it.
Ideally buy one piece gortex leather with limited stitching as the boots will take a hammering early in Useful to prevent water and snow getting over into the boots and lightweight too.
Communication Amazing piece of equipment allowing me to show my exact location and send messages from all locations along the trek. The one where you can send and receive emails and texts and update Communication Used for music, POD Casts and linking with the Yellowbrick for sending messages Communication Used Nameste SIMs. Would recommend also taking Sky, Hello Nepal and 24 Thuriya Satellite phone with solar panel Communication Essential, although didnt use.

Ser Hired kit
Hired in Thame village for crossing the Tashi Labsta - used for a couple of hours only. Depending on the weather you might not need to take these with you.

Held in Kathmandu with friends ready to be moved forward if required Held in Kathmandu with friends ready to be moved forward if required Held in Kathmandu with friends ready to be moved forward if required - I started the trip carrying around NCR 40,000.

a hotel) in Lukla.

KTM). - I took NCR 25,000 out of the ATM in Syprubesi, Langtang.
- Final hotel bank transfer of NCR 25,000 came in Kagbeni, Annapurna.
- When I finally finished and got back to Simikot to wait for my flight I have over NCR 30,000 left.

more than these. (approx only)
15 - In the east, eg Taplejung, approx NCR 1000 in the lower part, 1500 in the
The further north you get to Kanchenjunga base camp the more expensive things are northern parts, 2000 in Lhonak
