Clothing for Rafting

For Camping and Traveling

Clothing for RaftingA sleeping bag and pad. Your sleeping bag should be a two to three season bag, either down or synthetic filled. A foam pad or Thermarest sleeping mattress is mandatory for a good nights sleep. For those who do not have a sleeping bag and pad, they can be rented easily in Kathmandu or Pokhara.

Lightweight pants. Cotton underwear. Light weight long sleeved shirt or T-shirt. We use these as sunscreen in camp....doesn't worry about getting enough sun, you will. A fleece style jacket. Polypropylene or wool is preferable.

Toiletries: keep it to a minimum, and forget the cosmetics...., you won't have a chance to use them. Bring plenty of moisturizing lotion.
Spare glasses or contact lenses if you wear them. Flashlight or headlamp with spare batteries. Water-bottle

River Wear:-River sandals like Teas or Alps are the preferred footwear on the river. It is essential that all rafters have footwear that they can wear in the raft which will not come off in the event of a swim, as this is considered standard safety equipment. Old running shoes will also do.
Shorts or a swimming costume.

A sarong for women (a long piece of cloth wrapped around your waist) is another good option, and can be purchased cheaply in Nepal. This is invaluable for visiting villages and respecting local custom for dress.

A baseball style cap and good sunglasses are absolutely essential. Sunglasses should be equipped with a retaining device to keep them on your face where they belong.

Sunscreen (spf15 or or greater and waterproof) is essential DON'T FORGET LIP BALM, SPF 15 MINIMUM!
