You will need hiking boots with ankle support, sneakers for flat trails, and flip-flops or chappals for use around the camp/lodge.
Shirts, T-shirts (4), blouse, etc., for daywear and a woolen shirt/T-shirts for evenings.

A light sweater, a windcheater or light lined/padded jacket, and a down jacket or parka for above 7000 ft. treks. Woolen thick cap and warm gloves.
