Best Trekking Equipment!

Hi all,

we need some recommendations regarding the best trekking equipment and would be pleased to get some help πŸ™‚

We are doing Gokyo Trek in combiation with Ama Dablam BC and returning via Renjo La Pas. We’re asking ourselves if we need the super warm down jacket or just do layering with a more light down jacket πŸ˜‰

So, how are the temperatures during the day at our hightest spots Ama Dablam BC, Gokyo Ri, maybe Ngozumpa Tse, Renjo La Pas?

If it rains in lower Khumbu region (Namche Bazar for example) – this will only be a litte bit of rain right now, correct? So we maybe can leave the hardshell jacket at home?

I think we will need snow spikes as well for the Renjo la Pas?

Thank you guys πŸ™‚

I suggest you to take warm down jacket for Gokyo Ri hike coz hiking to gokyo ri start 5am is good. And crampons also need for Renjo la pass as there might be snow there during mid november. Good Luck πŸ‘
