Buying all the above equipment at an outdoor store in your own country may be prohibitively expensive. If you are not going to use this type of trekking equipment geared to sub zero temperatures after leaving Nepal, it may be advisable to buy or rent the equipment in Lukla or Kathmandu and sell it back half price to the same store on return from your trek. This service is available as many come to Nepal without the suitable equipment.

The total to pay William is 1997 USD this covers all fixed costs, accommodation. You need to consider the total cost of this trip. The flight from your home country to Kathmandu arriving on specified dates is for you to pay separately when you book to Kathmandu online and will vary by your location ranging from 600 - 1000 USD. Search cheap flights home country to KTM. You will need one stop as few flights are direct. As well as your flight you will also need to take with you spending money, travel safety money. Things like bottled water on the trek can be expensive. Buddhist retreat is full board. Other accomodation is breakfast only, you will need lunch dinner money and souvenir money. I recommend 500 USD to be carried on your person in two different parts of your luggage in cash USD and also to have access via credit card to a bank account as a back up in case of theft or emergency. All in all the trip will cost around 3000 USD depending on your location. 1997 fixed costs + 500 cash + Return flight to Kathmandu.
