this might seem a crazy question since I am heading off to Nepal next week, but I am still at a loss as to what is really needed to wear and what isnt?
I have been looking at photos of Nepal in December and to be honest it looks a lot warmer than in the UK at this time of year !
I had reckoned on getting warm gear - ie thermals, mid layers and fleeces - but am wondering if this is going overboard?
Can you advise on what is essential ?
Also I have a question about cash- what is recommended - ie proportion of travellers cheques to cash, and are Euros or US dollars (apart form local payment) best?
Last minute stuff !
