In response to the recent packing questions:
No, you all do not need to bring Nepal guide books or bowls etc for trekking. We have a number of Nepal guide books in our program library for you to borrow, and we will provide you with eating utensils for our trek.
However, please bring books to read or share (especially related to Nepal and/or travel), but leave behind any stress about packing since you can purchase most anything you may forget in Kathmandu.
Thanks for your questions!
