Very helpful and friendly people. Their hospitality and useful advises of trekking gear were super useful. I don't know if they have reasonable prices but it looks like. And all things I bought there where extremely useful during trek to ABC. I have rented a sleeping bag for 100rs per day and I have had amazing quality and comfort during whole trek. Thank you so much guys 🙏❤️🔥

We've been living in Pokhara for a while and always go to the incredibly friendly and helpful staff at Yak & Yeti for help with cheap but good quality trekking gear to buy or hire. We've bought a bunch of stuff here that has lasted and hired sleeping bags for 4 completely different treks (Poon Hill, Pothana, Jomsom and the Annapurna Circuit) and their recommendations have always been completely spot on for how warm we will need depending on the trek and the time of year. Look no further than Yak & Yeti for help with all your trekking needs!!!

Our family went on a trek recently and our guide took us to this shop before setting off to buy and hire gear. Nepal is full of the same type of shop with all the gear being much the same, not originals but copies. These work perfectly fine and large savings can be made. The owner is very helpful, don't be afraid to bargain! The sleeping bags we hired were adequate as we slept in tea houses where we had the use of blankets as well. Better ones are possible to be found in Kathmandu if you need bags of good alpine quality. No deposits were required so this was certainly a plus. We were able to find all the gear that we deliberately didn't buy from home knowing that we could save on costs.

There are lots of trekking shops in Pokhara and only visited this one so don't know what the competition was like but rented a down jacket and a sleeping bag, the service was not friendly and the kit was very old and off poor quality with no decent compression bags so took up half my rucksack.

This guy is very good, his prices are honest and won't stuff you around- straight forward and no need for bargaining, we had done a lot of looking in shops in Kathmandu and Pokhara. All the stuff is generally the same and haggling becomes annoying.

Great prices and friendly shopkeeper! We rented down jackets and sleeping bags here for our 5 day Mardi Himal trek and they were exactly what we needed!

The team at Yak & Yeti is world class, providing a great customer experience and high quality suite of products. I came to Pokhara unprepared for me ABC trek without a sleeping bag.....very grateful they were able to help!

Sleeping bag I rented was very clean/warm (honestly seemed almost brand new) and only cost me 6 USD for 6 days, unreal pricing given I would have frozen without it.

Would highly recommend to anyone looking for reliable and affordable trekking gear. From sleeping bags to to Patagonia vests - they have it all!

We bought our trekking gear from here for our ABC trip, and rented 2 down jackets. The owner was happy to spend a long time with us answering our questions and giving honest advice and recommendations. After a bit of bargaining he gave us a very competitive price (we shopped around a lot too). All the clothing was good quality and was still in a good condition at the end of the trek too! We also got the jackets back to him a bit earlier than expected, and he was happy to refund us the 2 days payment.
