Yes, you need a sleeping bag sleeping bags rated -10°C (14°F) to -20°C (- 4°F) as per the trekking season you plan. Also, our guide can provide you with an extra blanket if needed at the teahouses. It is always good to have a liner which you can buy here in Kathmandu or you can bring from home.

Yes, on this trek you do require Crampons. There will be ice on the trail to Renjo la, Cho la, and Kang Ma la.

Yes, you can buy gear in Kathmandu at a better price than your home but quality may not be the same. There are some branded items like Rab, North Face, Black Yak, Marmot, etc. There are local brands as well. You can rent sleeping bags and down jackets but the other items you need to buy.

It is suggested to follow our standard itinerary. However, you can walk faster and finish the trek earlier but it is your own risk. Due to the altitude issue, we have designed our itinerary and strongly suggest you follow it.

 

It depends on timing, weather conditions, and your health condition. In general, you will be spending 30 minutes at the Everest base camp. However, you can spend more if time permits or if your health, and weather condition is good. This is what you and your guide decide

Yes, you can go to Kalapatther and Gokyo Ri for sunset but it will be cold after the sun goes down. In general, many people go for sunrise. You can do both if you want to.
