      Trekking in the Himalayas requires equipment and footwear according to the season and the location. A single trek can start in the warm and humid climate in the lowlands, and bring you to passes above 5,000m. Solid trainers (“sneakers”) are adequate on most trails but bring sturdy boots for crossing passes that may be covered with snow. Climbing expeditions requires special equipment. Sandals and flip-flops are practical for an evening in lodges or camp. You can buy any kind of footwear in Nepal. No, it is not possible to live off the land in Nepal. You cannot just set off into the woods with a little money, a basket and a fishing rod and expect to manage on your own, Not only is the vegetation where there are fruit, wild herbs and other wild edibles limited, private community-owned, but fish is sparse and hunting is forbidden. It can also be difficult to buy food locally due to scarcity and poverty.
