Everest walk from Lukla to Base Camp Unaided Items Required for Sleeping/Resting.

We have made the decision to Fly from Kathmandu to Lukla, we will then walk unaided to Everest Base Camp. We are aware of the acclimatisation issues with the walk to EBC and really appreciate all the input and help so far. You have made it so much easier for us to get to our destination to fulfil our dreams.

Can anyone recommend the following items please as we are now in the process of purchasing the following necessary items:

Tent ?
Sleeping bag ?
Sleeping mat?
Sleeping bag liner ?

On behalf of my girlfriend and I, we would like to thank you all again on all your input and help so far. You won’t believe how confused we were with all the data online/books until we came on this forum.

Thank you so much again.

A fully charged mobile phone that works in the area. In the last few years there has been a number of cases of mountain walkers in different areas being rescued after getting into serious trouble (one calling home several thousand miles away to be rescued, who then alerted local authorities.)

GPS, if not on phone.

Aspirin to stop you blood thickening.

At least two pair of sunglasses.
